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 fantastic audiobook"

    Not only did I learn a great deal, it's presentation style had me looking forward to the next time I could turn this book on.

    For a book on budgeting, it was extremely relatable to people with just pennies or to people with hundreds of thousands

    "A story of compounding interest"

    Solid story with some basic lessons that all should learn. Working hard and taking pride in the work done should be taught from an early age.
