My life is forever changed!

This book is amazing, it should be taught in schools worldwide. Listening to the book on Audible really helped, I don't believe I would have grasped the moral of the story had I read it in text. A great read.

Very practical

While this book is old it made me realize the principles of wealth management have not changed much. I loved its simplicity and practicality. You do not have to be a qualified finance professional to understand it or create a plan using its principles. Very informative

Great story and great additional magic story

Loved this book and finished on audible in two days. Considering the age of the writing I could not fault the story and found myself nodding along with the words. Great advice and I actually feel good having listened to this. I recommend this to anyone as I believe the information to be invaluable. I would listen to this again and again

This book surprised me with it's power.

I thought that I would struggle to finish this book because it is written in A way that is Old language, but it drew me in with it's Powerful message and kept me hooked all the way.

The narrator dit a good job and read with feeling and emotion.I did not want to stop myself from finishing this book.

I feel that everyone should readthis book for it's message is profound.
