  • "Book is perfect to learn the value ..."

    Story

    This book is perfect if you learn by reading the experiences of others. The entire book is
    told in a story-like format, so it often goes down much like reading a collection of short
    stories. The language is a bit strange, as the author attempts to sound like this is an
    authentic tale from the ancient days, but the messages are as clear as sunlight.

    Seven Cures for a Lean Purse
    Since The Richest Man in Babylon is divided up into several short stories of varying
    degrees of quality, I thought I would review in great detail the one story that I found the
    most compelling.
    The tale “Seven Cures for a Lean Purse” relates a story about Arkad, the titular richest
    man in Babylon. He is requested by the king to teach a class to anyone who wishes to
    attend on the methods he used to build his wealth. He divides this class across seven
    days, with each day focusing on a particular method for saving money. Here are the
    seven methods.

    Start thy purse to fattening Take one-tenth of what you bring in and save it for the
    future. The book uses a coin analogy: for every nine coins you spend, take one and put it
    away for yourself. This is very sensible; a goal all of us should have.

    Control thy expenditures Don’t buy frivolous things even if you have enough money to
    pay for them. Instead, make sure that you can continue to save one-tenth of what you
    bring in. For this reason, I write about frugality on The Simple Dollar.

    Make thy gold multiply Once you start to build up some savings, invest that money so
    that it will make more money for you. Another pretty clear point; if you start saving
    money, it shouldn’t just sit in a mattress. Even a high-yield savings account is much
    better than that, and it can double your principal in about fifteen years.

    Guard thy treasure from loss This one is interesting: you should only invest in things
    where the principal is safe. In other words, the book seems to discourage stock investing.
    I found this to be particularly interesting given that it was written in 1927, right in the
    midst of the first big American stock market boom. Of course, 1929 proved the author
    right.

    Make of thy dwelling a profitable investment One should own their own home rather
    than renting because then money can be invested in the home or invested in other things
    rather than handed over to the landlord. Something tells me that this lesson applied better
    before people were looking at homes that were three or four times their annual income.

    Insure a future income In other words, invest for retirement and your family’s well
    being after your passing. You should be dropping some Hamiltons right into your
    retirement account if you can possibly afford it.

    Increase thy ability to earn Work hard, look for opportunities, and educate yourself.
    Today, a college education is one of the best investments you can make; I’m not saying
    that it’s a requirement to be successful, but it opens the door to greater possibilities.
    The Five Laws of Gold
    Another story central to The Richest Man in Babylon is the tale of the five laws of gold, a
    five-point philosophy handed down to later generations by Arkad, the titular richest man
    in Babylon. Here are the five laws, with discussion of what they mean in a modern
    context.

    1. Gold cometh gladly and in increasing quantity to any man who will put by not
    less than one-tenth of his earnings to create an estate for his future and that of his
    family. In other words, a person should put away 10% of his or her income for the future
    as a bare minimum. This rule is so incredibly fundamental, yet only a small minority
    even bother to follow it.

    2. Gold laboreth diligently and contentedly for the wise owner who finds for it
    profitable employment, multiplying even as the flocks of the field. If you invest your
    money well, your money will simply make more money. Again, a very simple and
    obvious rule, but one that many people never get to because they didn’t follow the first
    rule.

    3. Gold clingeth to the protection of the cautious owner who invests it under the
    advice of men wise in its handling. This rule encourages cautious investing, or at least
    encourages the investor to at least be informed. In today’s era, one can turn to the internet
    for plenty of investing information.

    4. Gold slippeth away from the man who invests it in businesses or purposes with
    which he is not familiar or which are not approved by those who are skilled in its
    keep. This goes hand in hand with the third rule: if you invest in stuff you don’t
    understand, you’re likely to lose money. Don’t buy the latest hot stock from your
    stockbroker; investigate and invest where you want.

    5. Gold flees the man who would force it to impossible earnings or who followeth the
    alluring advice of tricksters and schemers or who trusts it to his own inexperience
    and romantic desires in investment. The worst option is to invest in anything that
    promises absurdly good returns, or anything that you’re heavily pressured into buying.
    These investments are scams and won’t stand up to serious research.
    The five rules really are all you need to know: save some money, do some research, and
    only invest in the fruits of that research. Anything else is a sure way to fall behind.

    Other Parts
    The remainder of the book is loaded with similar tales, teaching basic principles of
    personal finance using stories from Old Babylon. Here are some of the other teachings
    found in the book:

    A Part Of All You Earn Is Yours To Keep This is a hard lesson for many of us to
    learn, as most of us are ardent consumerists who are trained to spend from earliest
    childhood. The truth is that we need to learn to always pay ourselves before we pay our
    debtors – once we do that, we’ll be on the road to financial success.
    Men Of Action Are Favored By The Goddess Of Good Luck I found this principle to
    be quite interesting, but also quite accurate. At first, you might take it to think that people
    who gamble sometimes end up big winners, but that’s not what this is all about. What the
    rule is saying is that people who succeed are the ones that do something. Even the most
    conservative of investments will pay better than cash stuffed in a mattress for a rainy day.
    If you do something, something will happen.

    Better A Little Caution Than A Great Regret On the other hand, if you push too hard,
    you can get burnt. Highly speculative investments can turn around and bite you hard,
    leaving you as if you had never invested at all. Respect your principal and it will respect
    you by earning well; toss it to the wolves and you may get nothing back.

    We Cannot Afford To Be Without Adequate Protection Retirement savings and
    insurance are both vital to ensuring that major accidents don’t derail everything that we
    do. If you don’t have these tools, a disaster can befall you, leaving you completely
    helpless.

    Where The Determination Is, The Way Can Be Found Don’t give up on investing just
    because the road is bumpy. If you keep at it, eventually you will find a path to success.
    This is true no matter what you’re doing – persistence pays off time and time again
    Enjoy

    While other books tell you what dyslexia is, this book tells you what to do. Dyslexics' innate skills, which may include verbal, social, spatial, kinesthetic, visual, mathematical, or musical abilities, are their unique key to acquiring knowledge. Figuring out where their individual strengths lie, and then harnessing these skills, offers an entrée into learning and excelling. And by keeping the focus on learning, not on standard reading the same way everyone else does, a child with dyslexia can and will develop the self-confidence to flourish in the classroom and beyond.

    The Introvert Advantage dispels common myths about introverts - they’re not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial - and explains how they are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation such as chitchat, phone calls, parties, or office meetings can easily become "too much". Most importantly, it thoroughly refutes many introverts’ belief that something is wrong with them. Instead, it helps them recognize their inner strengths - their analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration.

    Scott Adams has likely failed at more things than anyone you’ve ever met or anyone you’ve even heard of. So how did he go from hapless office worker and serial failure to the creator of Dilbert, one of the world’s most famous syndicated comic strips, in just a few years? In How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big, Adams shares the strategy he has used since he was a teen to invite failure in, to embrace it, then pick its pocket.

    John Perry’s insights and laugh-out-loud humor bring to mind Thurber, Wodehouse, and Harry Frankfurt’s On Bullshit. This charming and accessible audio educates, entertains, and illuminates a universal subject. Procrastinators will be relieved to learn that you can actually accomplish quite a lot while procrastinating. In fact, the book itself is the result of Perry avoiding grading papers, refereeing academic proposals, and reviewing dissertation drafts. It also has a practical side, offering up advice that listeners can put to use.
