I was reading the news today and there was some discussion about the millions of people that have read Rhonday Byrne's best seller, "The Secret."
In the article, Byrne mentioned a 1910 book, "The Science of Getting Rich," by Wallace D. Wattles. This book gave her "a glimpse of a Great Secret — The Secret to life," as Byrne writes in her foreword.
Well I haven't bought and/or read "The Secret," and I don't plan to (honestly the hype regarding "The Secret" here in the States is getting on my nerves), BUT I figured that I would give Mr. Wattles' book a read. Basically it's a self-help book that tells you how you can become rich and successful by wanting to be rich and successful.
Apparently I haven't wanted to be rich long enough--um 38 years now--because I'm still not rich or successful. But I guess one small step is to save my money and not buy Byrne's book because I can read Mr. Wattles' book for free.
This book was created by me using the "PieLrfGUI" program (kudos to EatingPie and simmepimme) and it's the first time I've posted a book created with it, so let me know if anything needs to be corrected.
