Read full description of the books:
All but science :))
This book focuses intensely on leaving ourselves to god and absorb the mind of the lord ... :|
I couldn't relate almost any of the stuff to science.
There were a couple of nice insights, though, for example, the author argues that everything and everyone we see, are in their perfect state, striving for getting better and better, and that's how the universe has been working. For instance, he says that we cannot say locomotives fueled with coal are bad, no, they were great in their time and laid the foundation of modern transportation. Hence, people we encounter, no matter how bad their manner might be, they are perfect and are on their way to sophistication. I really liked this argument.

Read information about the authorWallace Delois Wattles was an American author. A New Thought writer, he remains personally somewhat obscure, but his writing has been widely quoted and remains in print in the New Thought and self-help movements. Wattles' best known work is a 1910 book called The Science of Getting Rich in which he explained how to become wealthy.
He studied the writings of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and Ralph Waldo Emerson and recommended the study of their books to his readers who wished to understand what he characterized as "the monistic theory of the cosmos".
Through his personal study and experimentation Wattles claimed to have discovered the truth of New Thought principles and put them into practice in his own life. He wrote books outlining these principles and practices, giving them titles that described their content, such as Health Through New Thought and Fasting and The Science of Being Great. His daughter Florence recalled that "he lived every page" of his books.
A practical author, Wattles encouraged his readers to test his theories on themselves rather than take his word as an authority, and he claimed to have tested his methods on himself and others before publishing them.
Wattles practiced the technique of creative visualization. In his daughter Florence's words, he "formed a mental picture" or visual image, and then "worked toward the realization of this vision".
Rhonda Byrne told a Newsweek interviewer that her inspiration for creating the 2006 hit film The Secret and the subsequent book by the same name, was her exposure to Wattles's The Science of Getting Rich. Byrne's daughter, Hayley, had given her mother a copy of the Wattles book to help her recover from her breakdown.
