Wallace Wattles (1860–1911) was a New Thought writer best known for his 1910 book The Science of Getting Rich, in which he explains how to become wealthy. Wattle’s book was the inspiration for the recent blockbuster motivational film and book “The Secret,” according to author Rhonda Byrne.
An enhanced Kindle edition of the book, which usually costs a dollar, tops today’s Buffet.
Wallace grew up on a farm in Nunda Township, Illinois, and worked as a farm laborer. He studied the writings of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Through his personal study and experimentation, Wattles claimed to have discovered the truth of New Thought principles and put them into practice in his own life. He practiced the technique of “creative visualization,” in which he formed a mental picture, then worked toward the realization of the vision.

The Science of Getting Rich (Deluxe Version)
Self-Help > Personal Transformation
Author: Wallace Wattles, John Errigo
Straightforward and easy to understand, The Science of Getting Rich asserts that all of us — no matter what our circumstances — have the ability to obtain enough wealth to live as we desire and to fulfill our purpose in life.
Written a century ago and recently rediscovered by Rhonda Byrne, creator of The Secret, The Science of Getting Rich offers clear insight on creating prosperity and the happiness that ensues.
There exists a science of getting rich — and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are also certain laws that govern the process of acquiring means, and once these laws are learned and followed, a person will prosper with mathematical certainty. This book carefully provides the explanation of this science and how these laws function.
Each one of us naturally wants to achieve his or her full potential — this desire to realize our innate talents is inherent in human nature. There is nothing wrong in wanting to become wealthy; in fact, the longing for riches is really the desire for a fuller and more abundant life. The Science of Getting Rich can set you on your way toward reaching this goal.
This deluxe version of the book contains unique meditative photographs and a historical context of the book with an introduction. It is annotated, formatted, and illustrated by John J. Errigo, MS.
You too, can learn how to think positive and be a repellant of negative energy, through reading these magnificent pages. Let’s make life a success for us and set the world on fire. This book will show you how.
