Certain Laws Of The Science Of Getting Rich
The Experiment of Self-Help
From the title, this book contends that there is an exact science in wealth creation which can be compared to the hard sciences today like chemistry in physics. Thus, there is an assumption that there are laws that guides the process of how to get rich and be financially free. This puts the pressure on the reader to follow the methods rather than the rhetoric. In addition, the reader is given the certainty that one can get rich with these laws.
Some books just separate themselves from the substance that it presents rather than the form that most self-help books possess. The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles is definitely one of these books that hold much substance.
When the period of enlightenment is slowly turning into a period of modernism, Wattles wrote, That is why there are many parallel books about getting rich that are anchored on modernism; that is having a sense of certainty in achieving wealth if one focuses on a purpose and does everything to achieve it completely. In those times, people start working hard through failure to get things right. While today's getting rich books talk about leveraging, The Science of Getting Rich is a treatise of creativity.
