First published in 1880 by P. T. Barnum, The Art of Money-Getting is a short book encouraging the general public to aspire to wealth through proper economic means: building a savings, collecting on interest, operating business with integrity, learning the true value of money, working for what you earn, and foregoing extravagances in order to live a more modest lifestyle where saving money is the goal.

Based on P. T. Barnum's own experiences as a showman and businessman, he outlines a way of life rather than a get-rich-quick scheme. Despite its 19th-century publication date, his advice is remarkably relevant and will be of interest to young and old listeners alike who desire to be more responsible with their finances.
