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)

    "Weak ending but solid advice overall"

    Mostly common sense stuff but yet so important to hear and also empowering, such as "pay yourself 10% of all earnings first." For fans of rich dad poor dad.

    "The Richest Man in Babylon"

    The simple nature of the story makes it very easy to listen to and even easier to implement. The beauty is the results are immediate, the clarity of thought alone that one gains from having a plan is immensely liberating. A must read for all those who cure the cancer of a lean purse.

    "Great knowledge for growing wealth"

    Great book and good teachings specifically about money, how to grow actual wealth, and how to learn to love work.

    This book is for everyone who wants to spend money.

    Also has a great plan for how to get out of debt. Similar but different from the Dave Ramsey plan.
