Title: The Richest Man in Babylon
Author: George S. Clason
Do you remember when you received some money from parent, or grand-parent, and then didn’t know what to do with it? Do you maybe even remember your parent telling you that when you start receiving a salary you should put away 10% as savings?
I admit, I vaguely remember being told this wisdom, and it made sense to me, but not where the 10% came from exactly.
Well, if you’re up to enhance you financial wisdom, not knowledge but wisdom, then this financial basics introductory is exactly for you. You don’t need a degree in finances to follow, because the idea of transferring this wisdom to the reader was to be simple.
The book aims to give every reader the wisdom that was used in the ancient times of Babylon to enhance one’s wealth, and potentially accumulate more. (Exactly what we all want 🙂 )
The book is written in a conversational tone that could be interpreted as the elder teaching the younger a lesson, a lesson to ‘cure the lean purse’.
The book gives the reader seven cures to anyone who wishes to improve their financial position, and also to accumulate wealth on top of that. I on purpose didn’t post the seven cures that are listed in the book, because i strongly feel that in order for one to truly get value from this book one needs to read the wisdom in the context of the book, rather than in a book review here from me.
The book is cleverly written in a tone of a conversation between a ‘teacher’ and a ‘student’ and presents the wisdom in a very simple manner. Meaning, the book wishes to ensure the reader understands the lessons are very simple, and can be applied by anyone who wishes to make it part of their life. The wisdom is truly valuable, and deserves the high rating of 5.5/5
