There is a science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches. Once these laws are learned and obeyed by any man, he will get rich with mathematical certainty.
The object of all life is development, and everything that lives has an inalienable right to all the development it is capable of attaining.
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!
The men and women who practice these instructions will certainly get rich; and the riches they receive will be in exact proportion to the definiteness of their vision, the fixity of their purpose, the steadiness of their faith, and the depth of their gratitude.
A note from author Bruce Van Horn:
In today's culture of entitlement, victimhood, and scarcity mindsets, the preponderance of get-rich-quick schemes, and the abundance of misguided applications of the Law of Attraction and The Secret, this audiobook serves as a beacon in the darkness. It speaks truth and wisdom, and offers hope to those who will listen, receive, and follow its trustworthy guidance.
The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles, was written with a seemingly archaic language for a society that now seems like ancient history. The prophetic nature of this book makes it timeless and more applicable to this current culture - and to your life - than perhaps it was to those who first read it in 1910.
Even before I finished reading this short book, a sense of great peace and clarity came over me. I no longer need to compete for what I want. I do not need to hurry to beat someone else to the prize. I do not need to worry that there will not be enough for me or for anyone else. The truth was plain and simple: if I follow the simple methods taught by Mr. Wattles, I will be able to create the life that I want. And this is exactly what has been happening in my life from that moment up to the present day. My business has grown both financially and in terms of its worldwide reach. I am more confident in my abilities. My relationships are stronger, and new relationships have been birthed through ways I never foresaw. Simply stated, by applying the principles taught in this book, I am getting rich!
While Wattles published this book in 1910, I am convinced he wrote this book for future generations and future teachers. Perhaps he wrote it so that I might give it to you.
For such a time as this, I present to you The Science of Getting Rich. -Bruce Van Horn

Overly religious and delusional.
Less talk about what "god" wants, and how I should believe everything in this book without questioning it at all. This is in in the beginning:
"If a doubt comes to you, cast it aside as sin. Do not listen to arguments against this idea. Do not go to churches or lectures where a contrary concept of things is taught or preached. Do not read magazines or books that teach a different idea. If you get mixed up in your faith your efforts will be in vain. Do not ask why these things are true, nor speculate how they can be true. Simply take them on trust. The science of getting rich begins with the absolute acceptance of this faith."
Practically reads like it came straight from the bible. Any book that would tell you to abandon critical thinking and healthy skepticism should be giving red flags real quick to any reader. I've been listening to this book all morning so far, and I have to say that nothing of any real substance has come from it yet.
