Wallace D. Wattles, (1860-1911). La vida de este escritor americano es bastante desconocida. Nacido poco antes de la Guerra de Secesión estadounidense, experimentó diferentes fracasos financieros en su juventud.

His success, however, never caused him happiness and he waged a constant inner battle between his businessman self and his mystic self. After years of depression followed by the tragic death of his son, Hamblin left behind the world of business to find answers from his visionary experiences with a Divine Presence. Within You is the Power (1924) was his first book. Hamblin's work continues today through the Hamblin Trust.
