      I downloaded this book for free online in February of 2007 and bought the paperback Barnes Noble reprint in September of 2007.This book has changed my life It has inspired ideas and plans in me that I never thought existed It changed the way I saw the world, and actually worked to draw me nearer to my dreams as a result of the way the world works I recommend everyone who is inspired to do in their lives to read this, as it is a life changing book.

      There were some good principles discussed in this book, the most important of which is that each of us has a moral obligation to strive to fulfill our own potential However, I don t agree with the primary premise of the book, that getting rich is synonymous with fulfilling our potential Unfortunately, for ever good principle or truth discussed in the book, it seemed like there were ten times as many falsehoods and fallacies And in the end, the book didn t live up to its title It provided no real [...]

      Although there were many very good insights and some great advise, this book fails due to 2 major issues First, it takes a brainwashing approach, advising readers NOT to read or explore anything that may possibly contradict the book s message If this is science as it claims to be, then it should hold up against anything Truth is truth I disagree with anything that advises not to test and explore And secondly, the idea that the rich can help the poor by being an inspiration to them for what they [...]

      This book didn t actually say anything Instead it just talked in broad generalities and asked that readers adopt and believe a very strange creed There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imagined by the thought.A person can form things in this thought, and by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing h [...]

      We need to overcome our fears of self doubt reflected in the degree of fear and misunderstanding of wealth Money is not the problem, for there are many with it who do great things for others The problem comes in loving it above all else But what the misinformed don t understand yes, you who see the rich as evil for obtaining their riches is that we all desire great riches Who doesn t Who doesn t want absolute freedom to do as one sees fit and in doing so maximize our potential, skills, desires, [...]

    6. Fed on said:

      This is an interesting book for Christians I would not recommend this book for young Christians in the faith, but for those who already have solid biblical principles because the book could be misconstrued if read in search for quick miraculous wealth The text is to be read in its entirety, just like the truth, it is to be taken in its entirety otherwise it becomes a lie of omission The author is trying to make a point that aside for the few incorrect doctrinal points in order to enjoy the bless [...]

      Sometimes when you happen to read in just 100 pages all about the subject as important as Getting Rich, you feel like is that all The simple answer is Yes The complicated answer is, yes but you need to know that this book does not list cheap little tricks to get rich This book does not teach you how to corner others wealth by trading well in stock or speculating in commodities It tells you precisely how to CREAT wealth.Abundance, there is enough to go around for everyone, is the basis of this bo [...]

      I wish I could write some fallacious bullshit and get it published Wallace Wattles needs to look up the word science for a start This is as full of magic as The Secret So, if you like to pretend the world is full of fairies, this is the nonsense for you.

    9. Aditya Patil on said:

      Every chapter of the book quite contradicts the title The term Science in the title is misleading The book begins with the author asking readers to accept everything that is given without questioning followed by the warning that not having strong belief in author s strategies, will not yield you any results This is the kind of science he is broadcasting to his hapless readers, who are duped in to buying this book based on two fraudulent terms used in the title science and getting Rich He also wa [...]

      I have only been shown this book today and am already half way through it It has astounded me This book has eloquently summed up many of the ideas that I have been coming closer towards for years The first two main points I d like to note are that 1 acquiring wealth is not bad or sinful, on the contrary, it enables one to fulfill their potential in all areas of life and adds to the greater good for everyone and 2 acquiring wealth does not mean stealing wealth from others there is not a finite am [...]

      I really liked the book, yet it seemed unscientific just in the sense of being ethereal than real My take away comes from one quote The very best thing you can do for the whole world is to make the most of yourself.The book outlines 10 truths to the science of getting rich It s a combination of Daoism, Hinduism, Christianity intended audience , the secret, the Jack Rabbit Principle and the Abundant Life series all wrapped up in another way of thinking yourself to greatness I enjoy this one a li [...]

      In my mind, this is a must read for everyone I had read Rhonda Byrne s The Secret first and heard her mention Wallace Wattles as one of her mentors, so I decided to give it a whirl Well, it became obvious that Rhonda basically rewrote this book, softened the Christian slant, and called it The Secret I loved this book I m trying to put his methods into action so if I m rich soon you ll know whether you want to read this book or not I should add that it s a very short read You can complete it in a [...]

      I didn t find anything useful here A lot of generalities and abstracts.

      A must read It changes the way you look at things in life It makes you realize what you as an individual can do and is able to do It wakes you up to see the stronger inner you and will help you become determined and stronger I borrowed this book from the library and two days later, I bought it from the store I read this book over and over again so it can refresh my mind whenever I feel like quitting in things I wanted to do in life Great book Highly recommend it

    16. Reagan Ramm on said:

      This is probably the weirdest book I ve ever read, which is saying a lot since I went to public school Far from being scientific, this book read like the holy book of a religion devoted to wealth While the author quotes the Bible, he makes claims about God that are certainly not Biblical, such as the assertion that God doesn t want you to sacrifice for others, but to acquire wealth Getting rich the author claims is the greatest human pursuit, and you are nothing without wealth So many of the st [...]

      This book is so dated with Wattles talking about the great steel barons from another century that it makes many of his conclusions false.I found a few principles worthy to digest but the I thought about it, the I realized it was a brilliant piece of propaganda I picked it apart on my blog post and urge you to read it here bioniclady 2012 09 24 the

      The Science of Getting Rich is just what I needed right now I think from the stress of everyday responsibilities to the current political climate, life has been weighing me down This book gave me a new and positive perspective about all of that This book is about gaining wealth, but it is so much than that It is about having the power to set your mind on something you really want and then achieving it Sounds kind of cheesy, but I m telling you, this book was a game changer for me This book is [...]

    20. Lenore Skomal on said:

      The message is good, but essentially, the predecessor to The Secret What I enjoyed about this book and remember it s the updated version is that it boils down intentions into a much workable formula At least in my opinion This book also includes the original text at the back, which was written by Wattles in 1910 So it s really fascinating to see how some of his predictions have come to pass His theory is that everyone is meant to be materially rich And since the universe essentially is in a con [...]

    21. Donald Owens III on said:

      Some good advice, but the philosophy that the author has, and the ideas he tells us to accept are so poisonously egocentric and selfish that it not only taints, but spoils the entire book In the beginning of the book, he tells the reader that the idea we must accept is that the world owes wealth and prosperity to you, and the point of life is to be happy and rich He makes a point to say that if there is a god, he would want you to be rich In all, this is a poisonous book.

    22. Trevor Acy on said:

      This was a book of extremes for me There were parts I greatly enjoyed and agreed with and there were parts that I not only disliked but almost turned me off of the material completely However, the pros outweigh the cons especially when considered from the basis of the principles instead of specifics.I am a big believer in some of the main points that Wattles makes including the power of positive thinking, emulating what wealthy people do, gratitude is an essential component of wealth building an [...]

    23. Darren on said:

      With a title like The Science of Getting Rich I thought I would be reading a book presenting proven strategies and techniques to accumulate wealth In fact, the book is not really a financial book at all, and it certainly has nothing to do with science This book is essentially a power of positive thinking type of book with no real proven strategies The words science and proof are used incorrectly in this book.

    24. Cristobal on said:

      This is a book in the tradition of As a man thinketh , a book with a simple idea that can change your life It is a book that requires reading than once because it is deceivingly simple yet you need to think it over to really get a grasp of what it is about.
