This time, it’s not a novel.
Instead, it is a revision of a famously influential money-mindset classic.
The Science of Getting Rich was initially published more than a century ago, in 1910 - back in the bad old days when gender-bias was the cultural norm.
It was a wonderful book, full of mind-changing, life-changing ideas about money, wealth and riches, but the first time I tried to read it, I ended up flinging it across the room in a fit of feminist ire!
The book was written by a man, for men, about men. I suppose the author assumed that the rest of us wouldn't be interested - or something. Ignoring half the population was just the cultural norm, but reading about how a man should think certainly didn't resonate with me. Au contraire! It affronted me. Darn! I'd heard so many enlightened and highly-successful people (aka, men) credit this book with changing their minds about money, with putting them on the paths that led eventually to their success. I knew I needed that mental shift just as much as any brother, but I sure wasn't going to get it with the book as it stood. So - I rewrote it.
A bold move? Yes perhaps, but my plan was to make this 'new book' a one-off, for my own private library. I knew how to use Amazon's publishing system to create a print-on-demand book, and since the manuscript is in the public domain I could make myself a more readable versions of the Science without breaking any copyright laws. Well and good! I would make myself a version that would speak to me on the same deep level it did to those guys.
By the time I was done, and holding the proof copy of my 'inclusive version' of the Science of Getting Rich in my hand, I knew I had something that I needed to get into the hands of anyone else who wanted a copy.
Interested? Intrigued? Thought you might be, so I created this PREVIEW LINK so you can read Chapter One (plus the introduction and the original preface) for FREE! (Don’t we love FREE? I sure do.
Enjoy! Elaine H
