Summary

Wallace D. Wattles has helped millions of people achieve financial success. He was born in the U.S. shortly before the Civil War. Later in life, he took to studying the various religious beliefs and philosophies of the world, including those of Descartes, Spinoza, Gottfried Leibniz, Schopenhauer, Hegel, Swedenborg, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and others. It was through his tireless study and experimentation that he discovered the truth of New Thought principles and put them into practice in his own life. He began to write books outlining these principles. He practiced the technique of creative visualization, and, as his daughter Florence relates, "He wrote almost constantly. It was then that he formed his mental picture. He saw himself as a successful writer, a personality of power, an advancing man, and he began to work toward the realization of this vision. He lived every page....His life was truly the powerful life." His most famous work is a book called The Science of Getting Rich, in which he explains how to get rich and live life in all of its abundance.
The Science of Getting Rich is a must-have audiobook for anyone who wants to create wealth and achieve financial independence.
Wattles also wrote The Science Of Being Well and The Science Of Being Great. Both books have gone on to become "must have" classics about how using the mind effectively can bring about excellent health and increased intelligence through the use of proper thinking techniques.

The Science Fiction of ........

What disappointed you about Science of Getting Rich Trilogy?

This book is not at all scientific, and asks readers to adopt the creed:

"There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imagined by the thought.

A person can form things in this thought, and by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created."

Has Science of Getting Rich Trilogy put you off other books in this genre?

No

The Narrator sounds like he wants to kill himself

What made the experience of listening to Science of Getting Rich Trilogy the most enjoyable?

The book is great; that's why it's a timeless classic. However, the quality of the recording is extremely poor, and the narrator sounds like he wants to kill himself. I would recommend choosing a different recording.

Would you recommend Science of Getting Rich Trilogy to your friends? Why or why not?

No

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator and recording were awful

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Good but....

I like this book but...the hearing someone else in the background is anoying. In the Science of Getting Rich Section there is a second person in the back groung who sighs very loudly, or can be heard whispering to someone in the background. This happens 4 times during the Narraters reading. Especially noticable while wearing headphones.

Get a different version! The narrator is awful!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

While the material is superb and potentially life changing, this performance is horrible! The narrator sounds like a kid in high school, called on in class to read material he is obviously unfamiliar with. He mispronounces words constantly, pauses at the end of the writing on the page rather than where punctuation indicates, he emphasizes the wrong words in the sentences, and clearly has no understanding of, nor any familiarity with, the material. I will avoid this narrator in the future whenever possible.

What other book might you compare Science of Getting Rich Trilogy to and why?

"The Science Of Getting Rich" is similar to Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" and T.Harv Eker's "Millionaire Mind" materials. Many of the principles overlap or mirror exactly. I recommend reading & listening to them all. Each presents the material in a slightly different way, and by familiarizing yourself with all of them, you will gain greater understanding and insight into the ideas within.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

THIS PERFORMANCE IS HORRIBLE! The narrator sounds like a kid in high school, called on in class to read material he is obviously unfamiliar with. His reading is mechanical and word by word, rather than thought by thought. He frequently mispronounces words which he clearly does not understand, he pauses at the end of the page rather than where punctuation indicates, he emphasizes the wrong words in the sentences, and clearly has no understanding of, nor any familiarity with, the material. He misses idioms and quotes, and clearly does not understand what they are, or why they are there. I will avoid this narrator in the future whenever possible and recommend that everyone else do the same.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes! Absolutely. It would be like "The Secret." - As long as this "narrator" was not involved in it, it would be great!

Any additional comments?

Can I get my money back, and buy a different version? Please?
