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

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!

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!

some interesting views told in an relatable way.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for practical advice on life, work, finances and those interested in views on self development. I was told about this book from a couple of business owners who put into practice some of the lessons within the book. I can see myself listening to this again and again over the years ahead. My only drawback was in my head I found it difficult to picture Babylon as a tangible geographical location and found it to be a resistance block to the main concepts. I'm confident this will get easier to understand the more I listen to it though.

Great story, mediocre narrator.

Try download a different copy of this audiobook. The narrator in this version is rather monotonous in delivery and doesn’t put in the effort to change her voice with the different characters which makes it hard to follow the dialogues. I previously listened to another version where effort had been put into voices and sounds of ambiance which made the stories far more engaging. Look for that version.
