Enjoyable parables teach important personal finance lessons,
This review is from: The Richest Man in Babylon (Mass Market Paperback)
This book is a nice, quick read hitting on some of the most important lessons of personal finance: saving one tenth of what you earn, keeping retirement in mind, buying a house instead of renting, etc. The stories and morals are drawn out through campfire discussions and other scenarios hosted by wise men Babylon, some of which learned the ways of financial success early and others who learned them the hard way, working hard and eventually buying their way out of slavery.
Ancient-style language - "thou," "sayeth," etc. is disorienting at first, but you adjust within a few pages. Stories are entertaining, inspiring, and all-ages. I might just give this one to my little sister.
