    The Richest Man In Babylon, by George S. Clason, is a must-read book for all those who want to reach the pinnacle of financial success. The book teaches readers more than a thing or two about being thrifty, saving and investing wisely through timeless Babylonian parables.

    Summary Of The Book

    In Babylon, Arkad, Bansir and Kobbi happen to meet and discuss their respective financial standings. The latter two then ask Arkad his secret to wealth, the answer to which Arkad gives by relating his past experiences. At the end of Arkad’s story, which involves Algamish, an extremely rich man and his advice to this Babylonian, Bansir and Kobbi learn about the road to richness. Algamish in particular, advises Arkad that every man must save at least one tenth of his income and if possible more to become richer.

    The Richest Man in Babylon is essentially a compilation of parables that dispenses advice on financial matters to one and all. The characters created by Clason are relatable to readers as just like the common man, they too go about managing their business and personal finances. It is this relevance of the book to ordinary householders that makes it an uplifting classic to people even in the modern era, although the stories are all set in ancient Babylon.

    This timeless read very effectively puts across the crucial message that one must learn to live within their means. Saving and investing have also been given their due importance in the book as a means to becoming richer. What additionally makes The Richest Man In Babylon a compelling read is the fact that it has been written in such a well-written language that there probably is no one who has read the book that has not understood what they exactly need to do to improve their financial standing.

    Originally written by Clason as individual pamphlets to be circulated by insurance firms and banks, the notes were bound in a book form first in 1926. So far, the book has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide and is regarded as the best book for all ages for those seeking financial advice.

    Old is Gold

    Babylon is considered to be one of the wealthiest cities of the ancient world. Its amazing to think that the people who lived in a city that existed more than 4,000 years ago created a set of wealth management principles that hold their ground even to this day.

    The book is collection of short stories mostly centered on one man considered to be the richest man in Babylon (hence the title). The writing is old style (thou, thy, cometh, ...) which can be challenging to read at times. The princi...

    Excellent Book - A must read for anyone in the middle class who wish to become rich

    The book contains sequence of short stories which will change your perspective towards money. Each story has something to teach and the moral is priceless. The language used is from classic english with words like thee, thou, thy etc and would be a little difficult to grasp for people who are not familiar with those terms, overall an awesome book! Read this as many times as you can and also share them with your kids.

    Impressed by the treasure of financial knowledge.

    I am really impressed by the precious knowledge this book has to offer. This book throws light about the laws of money. These laws about money existed in the ancient societies about 3000 years back especially in Babylon and if one observes carefully these basic laws are still unchanged in this modern society we live in today.
