The Science of Getting Rich
The Science of Getting Rich is a timeless classic written by Wallace D. Wattles and published in 1910. This pioneering work was his most famous work and pre-dates that other wealth and success classic, "Think and Grow Rich" by 27 years.
The Science of Getting Rich is a very readable, practical, clear-cut and down to earth book. It outlines a mental and spiritual approach to becoming rich. He lays out his thoughts and arguments in a concise and logical way that builds his arguments, one on another until you reach his final conclusions. When you follow the ideas and thoughts in this book, you too will become rich.
In Wattles own words, his book is "intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and philosophise afterward. It is pragmatical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a lot of theory. 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 prosperous results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action".
The Science of Getting Rich is a must read for anyone who is looking for inspiration, developing a key understanding of the principles of success or who simply wants to get rich with certainty. Whilst The Science of Getting Rich is now quite dated, it is a very well written, with its own unique style. It is a compelling book that still resonates with truth and the fundamental principles of success and spiritual growth. The principles still hold true today and many of the great prosperity and success books over the last 100 years have their roots firmly in this book.

Wallace D. Wattles
Not a great deal is known about Wattles life. He was born in the USA in 1860 and suffered poverty and failure in the earlier part of his life. He wrote several books including Health Through New Thought and Fasting, The Science of Getting Rich, The Science of Being Great, The Science of Being Well and a novel called Hellfire Harrison. Later in life as he started to develop his new philosophy his success grew.
He began to write books outlining his philosophy. He developed and practiced the technique of creative visualisation and as his daughter Florence said, "He wrote almost constantly. It was then that he formed his mental picture. He saw himself as a successful writer, a personality of power, an advancing man, and he began to work toward the realization of this vision. He lived every page ... His life was truly the powerful life."
Wattles died in 1911, not long after the publication of his most famous book, The Science of Getting Rich.
