5.0 out of 5 stars Like a fine wine, this book gets better with age, 15 Feb. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Richest Man in Babylon (Paperback)
This book educates the reader about the way to improve one's personal finances. It uses a parable format to explain how two friends learnt how to improve their poor financial situation. They sought the advice of a friend whose wealth appeared to be limitless. Amongst the parables are references to modern day examples. It was the letter sent by the English University Professor that I found most inspiring.
The writing style is old English. This does make it hard to follow at first. It will take a chapter or two to 'get to grips' with the style. From there on it is easy and will soon become easy to read. It is not a long book so will start slow and finish fast.
I can highly recommend anyone to read this book. The advice offered is simple. If followed it will inevitably lead the reader to an improved financial future. I felt empowered and richer as soon as I read the final words. I will not be offering this book for resale as I continually refer to the sound advice that has lasted thousands of years.

I agree with you for the most part, though I must say the advice is not thousands of years old, while it may be marketed that way. The book was actually written in the 1920's, as a series of pamphlets by George S Clayton. The wisdom of the ages part was written by marketers. That's not to diminish the book's valuable lessons, but it is worth bearing in mind that it's style and setting is an appeal to authority, as we draw more credibility from rich Babalonians than from Americans pretending to be British archeologists.

Hello Mr. E. J. Lowe

My name is Omar and I have recently written a book which appeals to the same audience called Save Invest Live.

The book is a guide to money management and investing in mutual funds. I believe it has the potential to help a lot of people.

If you think you might be interested in reading it and perhaps reviewing it on Amazon, I'll gladly send a complimentary copy if you'll respond with your mailing address. There is no obligation, of course.

I appreciate your time.

Kind regards,
Omar
