Wallace D. Wattles (1860-1911) was an American author who experimented with, and studied the New Thought movement. He applied it in his every day life because he felt that thinking correctly would keep you healthy, and help you recognize opportunities. He passed away at the age of 51. He wrote a number of books and pamphlets, as well as one novel, but will always be best remembered for The Science of Getting Rich.
Robert Collier was an author of self help, and New Thought metaphysical books in the 20th century. Collier was born in St. Louis, Missouri on April 19, 1885. He was the nephew of Peter Fenelon Collier, founder of Collier's Weekly. He was involved in writing, editing, and research for most of his life. His book, The Secret of the Ages, sold over 300,000 copies during his life. Collier wrote about the practical psychology of abundance, desire, faith, visualization, confident action, and becoming your best. Robert Collier's books have been popular with self help and New thought. After overcoming an illness he became fascinated with the power of the mind and how to use it to create success in every area.
"During the past twenty-five years I have been blessed with more good fortune than any individual deserves but I shudder to think where I'd be today, or what I'd be doing if I had not been exposed to Napoleon Hill's philosophy. It changed my life."
