“What can a book written in the 1920s tell modern investors about their finances? A whole lot if it's George Clason's delightful set of parables that explain the basics of money. This is a great gift for a graduate or anyone who seems baffled by the world of finance and a wonderful, refreshing read for even the most experienced investor.”—Los Angeles Times
About the Author
George Samuel Clason was born in Louisiana, Missouri, on November 7th, 1874. He attended the University of Nebraska and served in the United States Army during the Spanish-American War. A successful businessman, he founded the Clason Map Company of Denver, Colorado and published the first road atlas of the United States and Canada. In 1926, he issued the first of a famous series of pamphlets on thrift and financial success, using parables set in ancient Babylon to make each of his points. These were distributed in large quantities by banks and insurance companies and became familiar to millions, the most famous being “The Richest Man in Babylon,” the parable from which the present volume takes its title. These “Babylonian parables” have become a modern inspirational classic.

The decisions and debt many go into can be avoided simply by igniting the ideas this book espouses in people's mind (especially the young).
Get this book and think of money in a way most of us were never taught.
I bought the kindle edition and the formatting was perfectly fine.
A great book to give to teenagers and young adults, in hopes they learn how to handle their money for now, and for future experiences.
I have not always been terribly fascinated by information on money, but I decided recently I needed to learn more, and assigned myself a financial reading list, filled with books that were listed on multiple web sites as being some of the best financial books out there. This book managed to take a subject I was not overly eager to tackle and make it fun.
The information provided herein is basic common sense, but it contained some good reminders, and inspired me to actually take steps to improve my own financial health. I think this book would serve as a good primer for anyone wanting to learn the basics of wise money management.
The storytelling style reminded me of the Arabian Nights.
