January 6, 1860 - February 7, 1911. Wattles was an American author and pioneer of the New Thought movement, a spiritual and philosophical movement that emphasized the power of positive thinking and visualization to achieve success, prosperity, and personal growth.

Wattles' most famous book is "The Science of Getting Rich," which was published in 1910 and has since become a classic in the self-help genre. In this book, Wattles laid out a system for achieving wealth and success that was based on the principles of New Thought and emphasized the importance of creativity, gratitude, and persistence.

His work had a significant impact on the New Thought movement and has influenced many self-help authors and motivational speakers in the years since his death.

Although Wattles died at the relatively young age of 51, his work has continued to inspire and guide people around the world in their pursuit of success, abundance, and personal fulfillment.
