Review

Praise for The Richest Man in Babylon

“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

“I first read
The Richest Man in Babylon many years ago. Its philosophy worked for me then, and it will work now for anyone with the good sense to stick to it. I think it ought to be read by every young man or woman with ambition to make something of life.”—Chicago Daily News

“Recently, several readers asked me for recommendations on books that introduce teenagers—and even pre-teens—to investing... My favorite, and one that I always mention, is
The Richest Man in Babylon. Though published nearly 90 years ago, the financial advice dispensed by author George S. Clason will always be relevant to a new generation of readers. Set in ancient Babylon, the characters learn simple lessons about money and investing throughout the collection of short stories.”—Chicago Tribune

“Full of time-tested advice on saving and investing.”—
The Washington Post

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.

George Samuel Clason (November 7, 1874 – April 7, 1957 ), also known as George S. Clason, was born in Louisiana, Missouri, and died in Napa, California.

During his eighty two years he was a soldier, businessman and writer. He served in the United States Army during the Spanish–American War.

Clason started two companies, the Clason Map Company of Denver Colorado and the Clason Publishing Company. The Clason Map Company was the first to publish a road atlas of the United States and Canada, and did not survive the Great Depression.

George Clason is best known for writing a series of informational pamphlets about being thrifty and how to achieve financial success. He started writing the pamphlets in 1926, using parables that were set in ancient Babylon. Banks and insurance companies began to distribute the parables, and the most famous ones were compiled into the book The Richest Man in Babylon. Clason's book "Gold Ahead" was renamed as The Richest Man in Babylon. Clason was married twice, the first time to Ida Ann Venable and the second to Anna Burt.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very famous book written on wealth...
Reviewed in India on August 28, 2018
Great book! The author, writes about the wisdom of wealth possessed by ancient Babylonians.All historians agree with the fact that babylon was the richest of all of the ancient kingdoms, although it was located in the middle of a dry, arid desert.The information contained in this book is acquired by the careful transliteration of the ancient clay tablets discovered by archeologists over the many years after the discovery of the ruins of this once great kingdom in ancient mesopotamia.The first section deals with advice on money-making by a very rich & powerful man named Arkad.He is undoubtedly the richest man in Babylon for he even lends gold to the emperor in the times of crisis. The later half describes tales which are directly taken from the ancient tablets, all containing profound financial advice on the art of wealth-incremement.
150 odd pages, took me about 5 hours to finish it.Go for it, its really a good book unlike all those other books on the same subject that promise to provide a lot but is full of pseudoscience & BS.
