There is a treasure trove of buried wisdom that is almost entirely unknown. The trove is found in a number of books, mainly written between the 1880s and the 1930s, that formed the foundation of today’s self-help book explosion. Many of these books are classics, containing profound, timeless—and too often forgotten—wisdom.
The reason these books are forgotten is not a mystery: although their ideas are ageless and life changing, the passage of time from when they were first published can make them quite hard to read. Flowery language, outdated words, style from another era, occasionally sexist and even racist language, and now-obscure references all make reading them something of a slog. As a result, these books are gathering dust on our collective memory, remembered by only a few. This is a travesty, since there is so much value in them.
Refurbished Books™ bring these classical masterpieces back to life by making them digestible and accessible to modern readers. Each Refurbished book tracks the original work, keeping all that is valuable but editing it to be better geared to the modern reader. In a way, Refurbished books are a translation, for today, from the era in which the original was written. Refurbished Books™ allows us to recapture the forgotten wisdom and regain the lost treasures of those who came before us.
While the original of each Refurbished book is in the public domain, all words, editing, and phraseology specific to this Refurbished book edition are copyrighted, with all rights reserved.
About The Science of Getting Rich (1910)
Rhonda Byrne, author of The Secret (one of the bestselling self-help books of all time), cited The Science of Getting Rich as her inspiration.
This classic work by Wallace Wattles (1860-1911) is considered by many to be the landmark guide to wealth creation. The Science of Getting Rich is the result of Wattles’ lifetime study of the principles of prosperity and how to best employ them.
