The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason is one of those classic texts that has really stood the test of time. The book dispenses financial advice through a series of simple, easy-to-understand parables set in ancient Babylon. Through a collection of everyday experiences the characters in the book learn key tenets of financial wisdom, which are still relevant and practical today.
The principles are not new and can be found in other texts, however, the simplicity of this book is its appeal. It is an inspirational text which should be required reading for everyone. I am amazed at how much is packed into such a short book. You could read The Richest Man In Babylon cover-to-cover in an afternoon, but it could take you a lifetime to fully appreciate the wisdom on the pages.
You will learn how to pay down debts and acquire wealth. You will learn to pay yourself first and to control expenditures. You will learn how to ensure future prosperity and guard your wealth from losses. If you have an income you can build wealth using these timeless principles. This book is a multi-million copy bestselling classic and you will see why when you read it. I highly recommend this book.
