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 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)
I was looking for this book at the book store and was glad I found it on Audible. This is classic investment advice.
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!
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.
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
It might be a little hard for readers to conceptualize and compare how economics and the smart way
handling your purse is vital.
I have avoided reading this book for so long and I am so glad that I finally got around to it. This is THE book on success. Get out of debt and save.
