Wattles's book was first published in 1910. The writing of this era is a delight - confident, erudite, precise. The nonsectarian spiritual component will elevate listeners' intentions and encourage their faith in the message. The author says that visualizing, thinking, and doing things in a certain way are the tools we need to create the abundant life we deserve. He is especially lucid regarding the correct use of the will, which should be used not to control others, but to direct our own thoughts and actions toward the future of wealth we desire.
