The Science of Getting Rich is the best known work from pioneering self-help and success writer, Wallace D. Wattles. With these principles and methods, which he developed from his own study and experimentation, Wattles shows others how they too can become wealthy. His daughter Florence wrote of Wattles that "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."
