Read full description of the books The Science of Being Well:My score of one star is only valid if the star system is exponential such that one star is 1/10,000th the quality of a five star book. Even then, I think this book doesn't deserve one star, but goodreads does not offer negative start ratings.
Firstly, to call this book the "science" of anything is an insult to scientists, publishers and readers alike. This book is so far from science that it would make people who think the bible is credible shake their heads at its ridiculousness. How anyone rated this book as four stars is beyond me. Even if you believe in astrology, homeopathy and imaginary friends, surely you could still tell that this book is a pile of horseshit? Alas no.
To be fair, I did not read the last 2 chapters. But I did endure the first part and the majority of the book. How come? The truth is that I listened to the audiobook and put it on to play when I started a long hot bath at the end of a long week. At first I was determined not to spoil my treat, but after a while I developed a masochistic determination to finish this drivel, in the hopes that there might be at least one half-profound statement in the entire book. No, at least not in the first few hours.
I do admire anyone who manages to write a book and get it published, so all credit for doing that. But I also think that publishers should at least read what they publish and have some standards when it comes to labeling the incoherent babbling of a person who's clearly hearing voices in his head, as science.
I guess we started this with some science books, referring to themselves as "the bible of ...", as in the social media bible (although, in fairness that's hardly science either, but at least it's closer). So, in retaliation, it appears as if the lunatic fringe have now taken to labeling their notes from a crack weekend as science.
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.
