“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.

Because I was a Christian I believed that I should tithe 10% of my income. I was tithing on my net income, not my gross. In my heart I knew that I should be tithing on my gross iincome. After reading this book, I decided that I should tithe on my gross, but in addition I should tithe (10%) to myself as well. That retirement is what got me through the crash in 2008 and has allowed me to purchase a small retirement property.
If you can get over the occasional use of Old English and seek to learn how to build, maintain and grow your wealth you should definitely buy this book.
PS - I think I have found a book to gift my friends this Christmas!
And then there are some of us who get it right away, for some reason, maybe never having to read about or go to an event to manage money properly.
I digress! In The Richest...the same message is delivered in an interesting and unique way, that really makes more common sense (not too common these days) than anything. Some of us need nudging. Some of us need a reminder about balance, the cost of immediate gratification and the laws of gold. Some of us need a cheerleader to get us back in the game again.
This book is another one of those. I don't believe in a magic bullet, only adhering to some good words of wisdom to combat the negative voices that bombard and plague us during these times, and these are clearly words a wisdom, and not too high a price to pay for them.
