Summary

"As a young man, I came across George S. Clason's classic 1926 book The Richest Man in Babylon, which offered commonsense financial advice told through ancient parables. I recommend it to everyone." (Tony Robbins, in Money: Master the Game)

The ancient Babylonians were the first people to discover the universal laws of prosperity. In The Richest Man in Babylon, George S. Clason reveals their secrets for creating, growing, and retaining wealth.

Through these entertaining tales of merchants, tradesmen, and herdsmen, you'll learn how to save more out what you earn, get out of debt, put your money to work, attract good luck, choose wise investments, and safeguard a lasting fortune.

Excellent book

The book was fabulous but the reader was really challenging. He was fantastic with pronunciation but was so monotone it was easy to loose focus. This is a great book but the reader needs to change to make it excellent.
