Publisher's Summary

Originally published in 1910, this audiobook takes the mystery out of the accumulation of wealth and breaks it down into a scientific formula.
Here is an excerpt from the Preface of the audiobook:
This book is pragmatical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories. It is intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and philosophize afterward. 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 results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which those conclusions were reached.
It is expected that the listener will take the fundamental statements upon faith, just as he would take statements concerning a law of electrical action if they were promulgated by a Marconi or an Edison; and, taking the statements upon faith, that he will prove their truth by acting upon them without fear or hesitation. Every man or woman who does this will certainly get rich; for the science herein applied is an exact science, and failure is impossible...
...In writing this audiobook I have sacrificed all other considerations to plainness and simplicity of style, so that all might understand. The plan of action laid down herein was deduced from the conclusions of philosophy; it has been thoroughly tested, and bears the supreme test of practical experiment: It works...and if you wish to reap the fruits of their philosophies in actual practice, listen to this book and do exactly as it tells you to do.

"A useless guide to becoming Rich"

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I'm not sure that anyone would get any practical, valuable advice on getting rich from reading this book. I don't even see how someone could better their position by reading this book. It keeps talking about doing things "in a certain way" and speaks in mysteries that are hard to comprehend. It has a religious, spiritual tone (and I have nothing against religion or spirituality) that is difficult to apply. I made myself listen to the whole thing so that I could at least be entitled to my opinion.

Don't Waste Your Time And Money..!

The narration was good. But the matter was useless And repetitive. I don't understand why the author can be so much unethical to write this trash just to make a few bucks. Such cheaters should be BANNED or sent to a Black Hole so that they can't come back to earth.
