Interesting on many fronts

The first 12 chapters were very interesting and very old school (1910) many of the principles can be applied still today. Chapters 13 to 17 did not round out the body of the thesis "the science of getting rich". Wallace mentions through out the book that you must do and think this thing, but never explains what "this thing is". Great principles around being creative rather than competitive. I really agreed with Wallace that if you want to be successful you must think and surround yourself with successful people and thoughts.

Fenomenal!

This is as much a book about getting rich as it is about personal development and substracting the best out of life. Christa Lewis couldn't have a better voice for audio books. Now I look for versions of the books which are read by her only. Thank you!

Well written and well narrated

This book was well written version of this topic and Christa Lewis did a very nice job on the narration. A good snapshot of history with the example of predicting air travel as being a very large future opportunity.

Most amazing book!

In concise, clear language, this book illustrates not only how to get rich, but how to live an abundant life filled with true purpose, kindness to others and reclaiming that child-like wonder that was lost for so many, so long ago!

Very soothing voice

Christa Lewis narrates with clarity and conviction. The book only comes alive when the narrator “narrates” without tension in the audience. Lewis does this job well.

The book itself... well, Wattles seems to be rigidly polarizing to support his point. But this leads to some tension in the audience.
We all need to take what we decide to take away with us.

Well read and easy to follow

I enjoyed this book greatly. I especially appreciate the fact that I could find this book with a female narrator with a casual tone. I'm on my second listen in 2 days, and I'm catching things I missed in the first listen. Her tone isn't condescending and it's easy to listen to her whereas, several of the male narrators I listened to while sampling which version of this book to purchase turned me off, and thus were left in the Audible store.

Now, if someone would produce a female-narrated version of the original version of Think and Grow Rich, that would be perfection.

Mind Shift

It will change the way you think about wealth and what you do, say and focus on. I'm going to listen to it a few more times to get it to stick.

Timeless Material read with Pleasant Voice

This is timeless information delivered by Wattles and I enjoy the narrators voice. I have the physical book, however I like to listen to it on the go. Excellent Work!

Good content - written in 1910

Good content, very dated and no actual mention of any scientifically validated research. For that reason I give this one star, otherwise spot on having come from 1910
