Publisher's Summary

Originally published in 1910, this audiobook takes the mystery out of the accumulation of wealth and breaks it down into a scientific formula.

Here is an excerpt from the Preface of the audiobook:

This book is pragmatical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories. It is intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and philosophize afterward. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the time, the means, nor the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics, but who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which those conclusions were reached.

It is expected that the listener will take the fundamental statements upon faith, just as he would take statements concerning a law of electrical action if they were promulgated by a Marconi or an Edison; and, taking the statements upon faith, that he will prove their truth by acting upon them without fear or hesitation. Every man or woman who does this will certainly get rich; for the science herein applied is an exact science, and failure is impossible...

...In writing this audiobook I have sacrificed all other considerations to plainness and simplicity of style, so that all might understand. The plan of action laid down herein was deduced from the conclusions of philosophy; it has been thoroughly tested, and bears the supreme test of practical experiment: It works...and if you wish to reap the fruits of their philosophies in actual practice, listen to this book and do exactly as it tells you to do.

    "Awesome narration of an all time great book"
    If you could sum up The Science of Getting Rich in three words, what would they be?

    This book is an awesome book and an all time great however you'll not really get what he is saying if you're not at least in the process of spiritual awakening. When you read this book purely from the ego you will not really get the message, even if you think you did. I read it twice previously and thought I understood its contents. But I have been doing some work on spiritual awakening lately with meditation etc. and when I read the book again I was blown away with how different the message was compared to how I saw it before.


    What does Brian Holsopple bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Brilliant narrator. I actually had another audible audio version of this book gotten years ago but had to get this one again by Brian Holsopple because of his brilliant narration of another book - As A Man Thinketh.


    Any additional comments?

    IMO the book's message only opens up to you after spiritually awakening or when you're at least in the process of spiritual awakening and now able to differentiate your real self from your ego.

    "High level philosophy only"

    It only offers high level philosophy on getting rich but lacks any practical tips. It's similar to saying that the golden rule of success is hard work but then offer no detailed techniques on the topic.

    "Mindset is key to success in all areas of life"

    Great listen with interesting points, just shows how a mindset change alters the way we think and see the world. e.g the concept of becoming rich to fulfil ones potential and give more to others is amazing and a great and positive way to look at it.

    "Brilliant visionary book"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Yes, because I have been able to play it whilst driving which is key learning time for me.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    The way Wattles helps you focus on eliminating distractions


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    The book can seem a little old fashioned, Brian freshens the feel of it, whilst retaining the original language.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    The Bouncepreneurs guide to bouncing back by eliminating distractions.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    A real compass in a world of distraction

    "The key to a content life"

    This valuable text is not for the faithless or faint of heart. It will guide you to achieving anything you want in life as long as you are willing to discipline your mind and control your actions. Being aware of your thoughts and attitude in every moment is exhausting but necessary to be happy and fulfilled. This book led me to new personality, a satisfying marriage, a younger and healthier body and material wealth. It will do the same for you if you are willing to do the work and leave your bad attitudes behind. Not for everyone, maybe for you.

    "All about mindset"

    To get rich you must think Creatively not competitively

    Your Use Value must be more than your Cost Value

    Be careful what you read, think, and act, It must be positive.

    Gratitude is the catalyst to make all of the above work the best for you

    The content is also "timeless." Mr. Wattles perspective and philosophy are spiritually based with meaningful references to assist in producing and attracting wealth.
