“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.

I started with the Audible version which was nice and will start reading it now to note down the important points that I can refer to them in the future.
You will not regret buying this book because it has lessons that you will be surprised will work in our days although it was thought during the Babylon era..
I enjoyed the read, the stories and appreciated the golden nuggets dropped along the way. Great book George!!
The Richest Man In Babylon gives a straightforward plan for long-term financial success. Simple as that.
Every person that has every earned a dollar should read this book. If this review has been helpful, or if you have questions, please let me know.
Those are the exact people I recommend this book to. The Richest Man in Babylon introduces the fundamentals of accumulating wealth to the masses. This book can really help shape the mindset of people looking to reach utopia one day. Aside from an awful lot of luck, getting rich starts with simply thinking a certain way.
That said, where this book is lacking is in the tactics, which is fine. Building wealth is about creating and executing offensive and defensive strategies and not about 'just tell me what to do to get rich' formulas. Although the strategies here are timeless, those looking for a road map may be frustrated. To those folks, I must add the following: There is no step-by-step recipe that works for everyone. Learn these lessons and be your own pathfinder. If are are diligent, you will get there.
