    Description

    A modern-day classic containing popular Babylonian parables, The Richest Man In Babylon is a timeless and inspirational book that reveals the keys to success from ancient secrets.

    Summary Of The Book

    The Richest Man In Babylon is a great inspirational work that dispenses sound advice on the subject of thrift, financial planning and personal wealth. The book is written in a very simple, easy-to-understand language, and it makes use of fascinating and informative parables that are set in ancient Babylon in order to illustrate practical financial wisdom. This bestseller offers an understanding of, and a solution to, all your personal financial problems and also reveals simple secrets on how to make money, keep it and how to make your money earn more money.

    The collection of parables in the book was originally part of a series of separate instructional and informational pamphlets that were distributed by insurance companies and banks. These pamphlets were compiled together and published as The Richest Man In Babylon in 1926. Since then, the book has been read by millions and it has helped countless readers set out on a sure path to prosperity and its accompanying joys. The book is written in a highly engaging and informative style with various fictional characters in the parables throwing light on profoundly simple yet highly effective financial wisdom, through their experiences in business and in managing household finances.

    One of the parables tells of how a chariot builder called Bansir and his musician friend Kobbi seek financial advice from their childhood friend Arkad. Arkad then narrates his own story of how he came to be rich after his chance meeting with a very rich man called Algamish. The secret he shares with his friends was handed down to him by Algamish in exchange for a copy of a law that Arkad scribed in clay for him. Arkad tells his friends that a part of what they earn is theirs to keep, i.e. the secret to becoming rich is to save a part of what you earn and invest it wisely.

    Some of the parables included in the book in the form of individual chapters are the man who desired gold, the richest man in Babylon, meet the goddess of good luck, seven cures for a lean purse, the camel trader of Babylon, the walls of Babylon, the five laws of gold, the gold lender of Babylon, and the luckiest man in Babylon.

    Treasure trove of timeless wisdom

    Fabulous book full of fables. Many a reviewer seem to get carried away by other reviews mentioning that this book is more about investment and financing. But it is largely up to the reader to discern the embedded truth and exact the general principles and values suggested to succeed in life. Some statements like 'Wealth grows where men exert energy' that are just mentioned in the passing, hold such profound truth and wisdom that is for the reader to grasp and assimilate the content.

    The Best book on Personal Finance

    Though this book primarily deals with the subject of money, you can see how money affects other areas of life like friends and family. I believe the famous “Pay Yourself First” quote originated in this b...

    Best book for beginners

    I have read this book more than twice over the span of the last 3 years and have gifted them as many times. This book through its simple to understand stories breaks down the art of making money into a series of common sense steps. They touch upon practically everything that anyone may need to lead a life of abundance even today... 4000 years after the tablets that form the book were created. Understanding the lessons in the book and the implementing them is important.

    I think, this book sho...

    I was searching online for financial literacy articles.
