Wattles uses New Thought Movement philosophy to explain the simple steps to follow for those who wish attract wealth into their lives.

Each chapter goes into detail about a choice that each individual can make to improve their mentalities, such as understanding will power, finding opportunities suited to one’s abilities, and practicing gratitude.
The belief that one’s mind impacts one’s wealth is still popular over a century after The Science of Getting Rich was published. This book helps readers reflect on the power of positive mental attitudes and inspires a more conscious way of thinking.
