Publisher's Summary

With more than two million copies sold, this classic guide to accumulating wealth has profoundly affected the world. Author George S. Clason uses simple and inspiring parables to illustrate how easily people can change their fiscal habits to enjoy a comfortable level of financial independence.

Unlike most financial self-help books, The Richest Man in Babylon does not present the latest fashionable idea for fattening bank accounts. Instead, it offers time-tested techniques, wittily illuminated through amusing fables, that clearly and concisely illustrate the path toward establishing a stabler budget and building greater savings.

If you are combatting debt, struggling to secure your retirement, or fighting to stretch every dollar you earn, you need look no further than the common sense ideas of this indispensable volume.

What the Critics Say

"What can a book written in the 1920s tell modern investors about their finances? A whole lot if it's George Clason's delightful set of parables that explain the basics of money." (Los Angeles Times)

    "A must read for anyone struggling with money!"

    This book is awesome, it really gets to the point if you listen. The old English type text can be a bit hard to follow but it's meaning is not lost. Most people truly do not know how to save money and to budget themselves this is an eye-opener for anybody willing to listen. Timeless!

    "EXCELLENT!"

    Wow! I have to say that I am stunned that a financial book, written in the 1920s and referencing an ancient text, could have so much spot-on value for today. I guess I should be, as advice from our forefathers is always the best! It was entertaining and informative! I am making all of my children listed to this, now before they marry and as soon as they become engaged! What VALUABLE information!

    "A little repetitive"

    I found this book interesting and inspiring but near the end I found myself getting a little bit restless as the stories became a bit repetitive.

    "Must listen !"

    This is a story about how the discovery of ancient tablets had principles for making money that still apply today. The narration of this book is one of the best that I have heard.

    "Inspring in it's wise words!"

    good narrator and good story. It is nice that instead of being about the greeks or romans it takes a different culture which was also greatly influential
