Product description

Review

I first read The Richest Man in Babylon many years ago. Its philosophy worked for me then, and it will work now for anyone with the good sense to stick to it. I think it ought to be read by every young man or woman with ambition to make something of life. Van Allen Bradley, Chicago Daily News
"[Clason's] 1926 personal finance classic." The Independent (UK)
"Recently, several readers asked me for recommendations on books that introduce teenagers and even pre-teens to investing... My favorite, and one that I always mention, is The Richest Man in Babylon. Though published nearly 90 years ago, the financial advice dispensed by author George S.Clasonwill always be relevant to a new generation of readers. Set in ancient Babylon, the characters learn simple lessons about money and investing throughout the collection of short stories." Steve Rosen, Chicago Tribune
"Full of time-tested advice on saving and investing." Michelle Singletary, The Washington Post"

About the Author

George Samuel Clason was born in Louisiana, Missouri on November 7, 1874 and lived to the ripe old age of 82. George Clason is best known for writing a series of informational pamphlets about being thrifty and how to achieve financial success. He started writing the pamphlets in 1926, using parables that were set in ancient Babylon. Banks and insurance companies began to distribute the parables and the most famous ones were compiled into the book The Richest Man in Babylon. It is this book which has etched the name of George S Clason into the history books and has provided generations of readers not just an inspirational classic for reading pleasure but sound practical principles of financial discipline. This is the most famous of his treasured works. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
