I want to read the book and I am furious that this study guide masquerades as the book at the top of Amazon's response to a title search. It is not at all what I was looking for and is a TOTAL waste of my money. Of course I bought it moments before getting on a plane and when I landed it was too late to reverse the order.

Please buy the original written by George S. Clason. The title is so similar that the book seems to be riding the success of the original.

This is a good trick. This is written for UK audiences and thus has pounds, quids, and whatever else they go by. It is not really the book "The Richest..." as it is a series of notes and short lectures UPON that book. I don't recommend this unless you are British and have already read the "The Richest..."

This book was less about 'The Richest Man in Babylon' than it was about Karen. It reminded me of a summary, a cheat sheet one would read to cram for a test.

It wasn't a bad book but it could have benefited from a bit more context from the book it referenced. Not a bad read overall but I wonder what she chose NOT to cover.

The book's not bad, but it's just too basic. It's a very quick read, but really not worth the time. It pretty much says save 10% of your income and start gaining experience through action. There are some other "lessons" in the book, but again they're basic. It's common sense stuff for anyone not struggling with money, and it won't really help you get making wealth if you're not struggling financially since it doesn't cover any investment strategies or the like. However, if you are or know someone who is struggling financially, perhaps in debt, then this is a book for them. But if you want investment information find something or someone else.

I purchased this book because it is listed as "The Richest Man in Babylon." What I ended up with was a interpretation of the book that was incredible pointless. "The Richest Man in Babylon" (the actual story) is a very help and easy to read financial guide. It gives parables for every day ideas like saving, paying off debt, etc. The whole book is less then 100 pages. Karen McCreadie's "summary" tells you the exact same thing in financial gargain. I'd skip it.

This was a great condensed version of the original, so much so that I still intend to read the original because my curiosity has been peaked. Like anything else, you have to take action on the concepts for them to work. Start today!

I find no fault whatsoever with the advice presented in this ebook. It is practical, relevant and well-researched. The author presents quotations, real world examples and useful pointers that anyone wanting to learn about money and finance would do well to learn. If a mountain of facts and figures alone is all you're after, then this ebook is exactly what you need.

That being said, what I object to is the presentation. The author speaks with a cool voice without passion or flair. What made the original text of The Richest Man in Babylon such a success was George S. Clason's ability to teach sound financial principles via storytelling: Characterization. Plot development. Dramatic irony. Suspense. Humor. Conflict. Resolution.

Abraham Lincoln was a master at this. So was Napoleon Hill, Mark Twain, Jonathan Swift and Benjamin Franklin. Even Ronald Reagan could spin a good yarn with an important message contained within. The author of this ebook lacks the human element behind the teachings. JK Rowling could enthrall huge crowds with her tales of underdogs overcoming great odds and adversity. The same should've been true of this book. Try reading it in public and watch the eyes of your audience members glaze over as they vacate their seats. It's just that boring!

Now, I'm all for learning useful skills, but this can be accomplished far better with a certain showmanship and an appreciation for the dramatic! In short, we need a financial advisor who happens to be a gifted storyteller…like George S. Clason was.
