Good Fianancial Fundamentals!!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Richest Man In Babylon - Original Edition to be better than the print version?

I have listened to many audio books, and this one is on my top three favorites. Christa's voice was awesome and her tone adjustments throughout the book bring the characters to life. I usually prefer female voices for my audio books, studies show that a female voice retains a listener's attention span for longer periods of time. So true! The story's lessons are priceless and I look forward to teaching my children the principles of saving and investing in yourself. Oh, and the audio was studio quality, no issues. Nice job guys!

Clean edit, smooth voice like honey

Where does Richest Man In Babylon - Original Edition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I absolutely love Christa's voice in this edition. She brings the characters to life. Her reading is smooth, easy to understand, and very enjoyable.
The lessons are simple and powerful. I listen to this over and over so the lessons become second nature to my daily life. Save for the future, make money work for you, etc.

What does Christa Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Smooth voice, makes me feel relaxed

Less financial guidance more philosophy

Work hard, act like a master of your money; not a slave... written like a biblical journey

Timeless parable. Well done!

As a financial coach I am always on the look out for stories that are relatable and illustrate principles rather than trendy strategy. When we understand the principles we can then apply proper strategy and see through the holes of speculation sold as strategy.

this book sets the right time for long term success with money! highly recommend it!
