Publisher's Summary

Becoming rich is not a matter of environment or talents. Money and property come to us as a result of doing things in a certain way. This is a natural law - the Law of Attraction - which states that specific actions always produce like effects. As a result, anyone who learns to do things in a certain way will ultimately become prosperous.The Science of Getting Rich explains how to obtain wealth in a practical, mathematical, manner. Wallace D. Wattles treats gaining riches as a simple equation, and explains that if his simple, rational steps are done in a "certain way", the result will always equal wealth.Updated for the 21st century, this exclusive, revised edition presents a modern version of the lessons taught in the original. Free of complicated theories and wordy philosophies, it is told in a clear-cut, easy-to-understand manner that all can comprehend and apply to their lives. It requires only that you listen, internalize the words, and keep your thoughts on your desires. You will then obtain the wealth that is awaiting everyone.Wattles' original book, written nearly a century ago, was recently rediscovered by Rhonda Byrne, creator of The Secret.

Terrible

There is absolutely NO science in this book. It should be called The Vague Philosophy of Getting Rich.

It goes on and on about "the substance that fills the universe." Then it goes on and on about thinking of an idea and then it will just magically make you rich.

There is a section where it talks about ignoring the poor or anything to do with the poor. There is a section where it talks about not communicating with the dead or with spirits. All of that BS and not one mention of a PE ratio or even an index fund.

I was expecting a step by step, and almost formulaic approach (hence the science), but all I got was 3 hours of my life that I will never get back.

If you want some good reads, try these books instead.
