The Science of Getting Rich Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
|Kindle, 19 April 2007||
"Perhaps the most important thing that separates Wattles' success strategy from many other systems is his emphasis on spiritual philosophy rather than self interest." (Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer, March 2009)
". . . Wattles identified financial success as the critical element, and first priority, in creating an environment in which one could grow in wealth, wisdom, and happiness. . . . the foundation of today's widespread success and prosperity movements." (Joint Forces Journal, July 2009)
“Wattles offers techniques for getting in tune with one’s deeper self and thus creating a channel of communication between oneself and universal energy. His is a gentle philosophy that excludes competition, cheating, and lording it over one’s fellows when one has made it, and encourages cooperation.” (Publisher’s Weekly) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

On the one hand it adopts a mystical approach to the topic while at the same time asking the reader to refrain from supporting charities or doing any charitable work. It is rambling and shambolic and lacks focus and direction.
Spend your money on Napoleon Hill, Jim Rohn, Bob Proctor, James Allen or David J. Schwartz...you'll be glad you did.
This book has been a direct inspiration for the documentary “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne and the book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill and tells you everything as rules rather than philosophy and tells you that if you want to become rich than the guidelines mentioned in the book has to be followed as it is rather than being doubted upon.
The book confidently claims that the theories mentioned in the book if followed step by step with extreme belief and faith can make you achieve whatever you want to achieve in life.
The book deals with the method that whatever you think and say has meaning and just by manipulating with your thoughts and words inside you can actually change the reality outside. Most people think that what they are thinking does not have any meaning but whatever they are thinking of is actually creating a reality for them. The book tells that the mind is actually divided into two parts - conscious and subconscious mind and whatever data is fed into subconscious mind starts to come true with time with a due process of repetition.
The book does help and the book is really a guide for anyone who dreams of ever becoming rich. I think that most people who have read the book found the book to be ludicrous because they would doubt the authenticity of the author and whether what he is telling is true or not.
Again the entire theory seems like wishful thinking where anything that you think can come true which was also the basis of “Law of Attraction” preached in the documentary “The secret”. The documentary told the same things but they explained it better with the help of examples and personal experiences of people to which people responded more positively.
The book, however, requires multiple reading before it starts affecting your psyche and I have read it multiple times to claim that it has helped me tremendously. I was never a big earner but then I gave two years of my life to know more about the fact that how to get rich and along with the theories of Napoleon Hill, the advice of Sir Walter Wallace mentioned in this book helped me in earning more money every year.
I feel more in control of the mind. However, controlling your mind is not an easy thing to do and there are multiple books written on the same subject. An entire science has been developed to understand the subject and two scholars from Standford has actually developed a method in which you can reprogram your mind to make it think whatever you like. It’s called NLP, the full form of which is Neuro-Linguistic Programming. A free mind, in my opinion, is the more prone to negative thoughts, which this book advocate, is the biggest hurdle when it comes to becoming rich. Lack of self-belief and trust in oneself is the reason one does not trust things outside and hence ruins his own life by doubting every other thing in this world.
I would suggest that whenever you read this book, read it with an open mind and try to follow rules for three months at least before discarding them forever. They may not work for you, but I still reiterate that just because they won't work for you does not mean that the bits of advice given in the book are not valuable. They have worked for me and I really hope they will work for you too.
