Originally published in 1911, How to Be a Genius appeals to people who feel that they are not making the most of their lives. We all want to stand out and be in control. Wattles explains to his readers how to live aggressively and with purpose, making themselves forces that move in the world rather than reactive leaves, blown about by life's circumstances. He championed the law of attraction, which proposed that a person's thoughts became reality-commonly referred to now as the power of positive thinking. American author WALLACE DELOIS WATTLES (1860-1911) overcame poverty and failure in his life to become a pioneer of the early self-help movement. Among his books are The Science of Getting Rich and The Science of Being Well.
