The Richest Man In Babylon, originally published in the 1920s, is a timeless classic that provides a financial foundation for anyone seeking lifelong prosperity. This book is the tale of the ancient city of Babylon, which is depicted as the wealthiest city of the ancient world.
By piecing together a series of well-told parables, The Richest Man In Babylon is able to teach critical financial lessons by explaining how the city of Babylon went from rags to riches.
This best selling book not only reveals the success secrets of the ancient Babylonian wise men, but it also provides a step-by-step plan to achieve any financial goal. The only criticism I have for this book is the grammar used by the writer. It is written with a “bible” like grammar consisting of tons of words like thou, thee, and bringeth.
The good thing is that it is less than 200 pages, so it is not as bad as you may think and it is well worth the read. In short, this book has been hailed one of the greatest inspirational work on the subject of thrift, financial planning, and personal wealth, which is why I suggest that anyone who has aspirations for riches to read this book ASAP.
