Wallace D. Wattles on What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do
What Is the Truth?

What's the Difference Between "The Science of Getting Rich" and "Financial Success Through Creative Thought"?

In a survey I conducted, a reader wrote:

"Hi Tony,

What, if any, is the difference between 'The Science of Getting Rich' by Wallace D. Wattles and 'Financial Success Through Creative Thought' by Wallace D. Wattles? Are they one in the same, the only difference being the titles, or two completely different books?

Thanks!"

The Science of Getting Rich, which is, without a doubt, Wallace D. Wattles' best-known book, was first published in 1910 by The Elizabeth Towne Company of Holyoke, Massachusetts, USA.

It was republished in 1915 by The Elizabeth Towne Company under the title, Financial Success Through Creative Thought, or, The Science of Getting Rich.

The texts of The Science of Getting Rich and Financial Success Through Creative Thought are essentially the same.

The main differences between the two books are these:

  1. The title.
  2. The Preface. References to The Eternal News by J. J. Brown and Mr. Wattles' What Is Truth? articles were, for whatever reason, omitted from Financial Success Through Creative Thought.
  3. Financial Success Through Creative Thought included a three-page section at the end of the book titled, "Can You Answer These Questions on The Science of Getting Rich?". This section included a series of self-study questions for each of the seventeen chapters in the book.

If you'd like to get your hands on those self-study questions, which I've found extremely helpful in my study of The Science of Getting Rich, I've included them in two of the books that I publish. Click or tap the links below to get your copy today.

Hi Tony,

do you know where someone can find the book "The Eternal News" by J. J. Brown that is referenced by Mr Wattles? I've search a lot online but it seems there is nothing.

thank you

Tony Mase

Unfortunately, I don't. I've been searching for it for many years but have yet to find a copy.

I have the 1925 edition. What is it worth?
TIA,

It's "worth" whatever you'd be willing to sell it for and a potential buyer would be willing to pay for it at any given point in time.
