Wallace D. Wattles was born in 1860, in Illiis, USA. Lacking a formal education, he lived as a farm labourer, continually failing at a variety of projects until, late in life, he devised the principles espoused in 'The Science of Being Well' and its two companion volumes 'The Science of Getting Rich' and 'The Science of Being Great'. Wattles maintained that whatever we want in life can be achieved if we 'Think in a Certain Way', using the Law of Attraction. By holding a vibrant image of our well-being clearly in mind, by asking for health and clearly believing that we have received it, forces will be set in motion that will bring that vision into reality. Wattle's philosophy was the basis of the modern-day bestseller 'The Secret', and is a must-read for all those seeking a drug-free route to health.
