About the Author

Wallace Delois Wattles was born in the United States in 1860.

He experienced a life of failure after failure, until in his latter years, after tireless study and experimentation… he formulated and put into practice the principles he explains in his best known book The Science of Getting Rich. Unfortunately, Mr. Wattles died in 1911, one year after the publication of The Science of Getting Rich.

While it is difficult to discover much about Wallace Wattles’ life, his daughter, Florence, notes thatin those last years, ”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.”

However, Wallace Wattles’ work was largely forgotten, until recently, when a few people began to study and implement the principles that are explained in The Science of Getting Rich. Some people who have studied and applied these principles have experienced remarkable results: They have gotten rich!

When you have read and implemented the principles explained in his books in your own life, you will see that all the success and personal development literature of the last 100 years owes a great debt of gratitude to Mr. Wattles.
