Cosimo's Classic of the Month: The Wallace D. Wattles Trilogy

Cosimo's Classic of the Month for June is the Wallace D. Wattles Trilogy, a selection of three popular classics by Wallace Wattles. The trilogy includes The Science of Being Well, The Science of Getting Rich, and How to Be a Genius, or the Science of Being Great. Each title reads like an old-fashioned self-help guide from new thought guru Wallace Wattles. He demonstrates his philosophies on health, wealth, and happiness in this series that breaks each down into a step-by-step manual.

These books prescribe an exact method for readers to accomplish three basic goals that will make any person happy, applying principles of metaphysics and New Thought to overcome human error. Each book focuses on a subject--wealth, health, and power--and applies an exact science that will allow anyone to achieve their goal by following some basic steps in a specific order, in a "Certain Way." Sacrificing explanations of philosophy for brevity, Wattles provides readers a stripped-down guide on shaping the universe to their benefit through the power of positive thinking.

This series of three complements Cosimo's Book of the Month, The Book of Balance, by Yasuhiko Genku Kimura, by providing the groundwork to becoming healthy, wealthy, and happy in your life. Kimura's translation of Tao Teh Ching will provide serenity on your journey to happiness this summer.

WALLACE DELOIS WATTLES (1860-1911) overcame poverty and failure in his life to become a pioneer of the early self-help movement. His most famous book is The Science of Getting Rich; he also wrote Health through New Thought and Fasting, also available from Cosimo.
