Publisher's Summary

Originally published in 1910, this audiobook takes the mystery out of the accumulation of wealth and breaks it down into a scientific formula.

Here is an excerpt from the Preface of the audiobook:

This book is pragmatical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories. It is intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and philosophize afterward. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the time, the means, nor the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics, but who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which those conclusions were reached.

It is expected that the listener will take the fundamental statements upon faith, just as he would take statements concerning a law of electrical action if they were promulgated by a Marconi or an Edison; and, taking the statements upon faith, that he will prove their truth by acting upon them without fear or hesitation. Every man or woman who does this will certainly get rich; for the science herein applied is an exact science, and failure is impossible...

...In writing this audiobook I have sacrificed all other considerations to plainness and simplicity of style, so that all might understand. The plan of action laid down herein was deduced from the conclusions of philosophy; it has been thoroughly tested, and bears the supreme test of practical experiment: It works...and if you wish to reap the fruits of their philosophies in actual practice, listen to this book and do exactly as it tells you to do.

Best Book Ever Written in History: Life by Design

Love the book!! We have at least 10 copies...gave one to all my friends and family!!! The first 2 audio books could not hang...the woman voice was nail on chalk board, 2nd book sounded like a pirate with distracting theatrical music in back ground...third time was a charm....

The key to a content life

This valuable text is not for the faithless or faint of heart. It will guide you to achieving anything you want in life as long as you are willing to discipline your mind and control your actions. Being aware of your thoughts and attitude in every moment is exhausting but necessary to be happy and fulfilled. This book led me to new personality, a satisfying marriage, a younger and healthier body and material wealth. It will do the same for you if you are willing to do the work and leave your bad attitudes behind. Not for everyone, maybe for you.
