Wallace Wattles is the godfather of the modern self-improvement genre. He wrote The Science of Getting Rich over a hundred years ago, but the concepts are still applicable today. It takes a little getting used to the vocabulary at first. He uses New Age-sounding terms like the “Formless Intelligence,” the “Supreme,” and the “Certain Way.” He also talks about Jesus, God, and religion, then tries to tie it into what he calls “Science.”
It is not a scientific book at all. Rather, the central premise of the book is that the Law of Attraction is real. You can have anything you want if you have the right attitude and mindset. He also emphasizes that while thinking will make the universe conspire to help you succeed, you do need to do your part in working hard so you can receive your riches.
