Publisher's Summary

Wallace D. Wattles was an American "New Thought" writer who wrote this amazing little book in 1910. It caused a sensation then, and continues to be popular today. In fact, Rhonda Byrne said that part of her inspriation for her best-selling book and film The Secret came from this book.

    "Plain english"
    If you could sum up The Science of Getting Rich in three words, what would they be?

    Can do approach


    Have you listened to any of Jim Roberts’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The Author presents a straightforward solution. It's practical and I'm in no doubt of the merits of the proposals - it works!! <br/>I had it on constant replay and revisit it for time to time as a reminder or to renew my focus but the book presents a can do solution in plain English.<br/>I'm definitely a fan.

    "Don't buy this version of the book"
    Would you try another book written by Wallace D. Wattles or narrated by Jim Roberts?

    Written yes, narrated - hell no.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    By being the worst ever


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Good thing was I first listened to the one by Kevin T. Norris first.


    Any additional comments?

    Please just remove this version, for all other people sake.

    "Try others first"

    Not a science of getting rich, in fact not science but theology. For a much better expression of largely the same ideas, without the dogmatic overtones, listen to "The Secret". Not worth the money.

    "Ready to get rich!"

    Amazing book and very well narrated. I truly fascinating view on the science behind becoming rich. I have read and listened to many self help books and this is definitely one I will listen to over and over again as time goes on. Start listening with an open mind and watch how your mind and perspective start to change!

    "Direct and To The Point"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It boils everything down to the bare concepts of what it takes to get what you want out of life. Not "5 - 7 easy steps to overnight success" type book but the concrete ideas that perhaps those 'other' books were developed from.


    What other book might you compare The Science of Getting Rich to and why?

    Napoleon HIlls "Outwitting the Devil". They share the concept that being able to focus on the goal is paramount to success. Wattles makes this case succinctly.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy listening to this one when I feel like I need a reminder about what my goals are.

    I love the way this is broken down and how useful it was to me in the sense of realising the power of each and every one of us to attain what we want out of life.

    What did you love best about The Science of Getting Rich?

    This is the most important book on wealth ever written. I've read a lot of them. I keep coming back to this and doing what it says. Exactly what it says and it works every time.

    "Plain and sincere"

    I found that there was sincerity of purpose and plainness in advice removed of any unnecessary fluff. It remains to be seen with practice whether the principles taught in the book work or not but I can't see a reason why not. Do listen to it. Its style is a bit old school but its advice is practical.
