Very thought provoking. Loved it.

Considering that the book was written in 1910, and that some of the examples the author uses to convey his precepts are irrelevant, one feels that what he claims could actually work even in our age. I've read it at least four times and I'm definitely converted. I'm not rich yet, but when I am, I will let you know.

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!!
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.
I'm definitely a fan.

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.

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.

Great way of thinking about getting rich

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.

Seriously - The best book on wealth ever written

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.
