Wake up and smell the money!,
This review is from: The Richest Man in Babylon: Now Revised and Updated for the 21st Century (Paperback)
I read this book before Rich Dad, Poor Dad and can highly recommend the combination.
Rather than a guide on strictly how to make money, this book helps you to manage the money you are already earning more efficiently. By doing so will then allow you to go forth and use your savings to earn more money. Like soldiers in a battle, some maybe lost, but some will conquer and come back with captives! The parables and metaphors make it an interesting read as you have to think about the lessons given with each story more so, and the summary at the end of each chapter solidifies those lessons further still.
The 'revision and updates' for the 21st century are somewhat hard to find in the old style and slightly chauvinistic text, but the ability to apply the theories does exists in today's society.
A recommendation for those in financial hardship as well as those with more prosperous lives.
