The Science of Getting Rich/The Science of Being Great

by Wallace D. Wattles

Two books in one, and a good pair to come back to throughout life. The title makes it sound like bottom feeder trite—which is what I expected when it was recommended to me—but I was pleasantly surprised to find the opposite. The overwhelming message of the book is the importance of mindset and taking action, though that doesn’t do it justice. There’s a religious component that can be off-putting depending on your own beliefs (this is briefly addressed in The Science of Being Great), but it’s best to ignore it and look to the points being made. Read it, try what it says, and see if it has an impact on your life.
