The Richest Man in Babylon

RichestMan RichestMan RichestMan This is a classic.  Perhaps not quite in the same way as Think and Grow Rich, but it's pretty close.  It teaches the fundamentals of financial success.  In 1926 George Clason wrote the first of his parables set in ancient Babylon - which had great airing.  This short volume collects his parables, including:

  • The Richest Man in Babylon
  • The Man Who Desired Gold
  • Seven Cures for a Lean Purse
  • The Walls of Babylon

and 7 more.  The rules that the parables proclaim work just as well today as they would have in 1926, which I guess is why it's still selling like crazy - rules like 'save the first 10% of your income'.

It took me a long time to get around to reading it and eventually it was a video program by Jim Rohn that promoted me to finally pick it up.

Most of my 'success' reading is done during the day and I keep novels and fiction for the evenings.  This book combines them both and I happily read it purely for leisure - just the way we would teach children 'learn from playing' - perhaps that's why Jim Rohn uses it to tech Children and why it's sold more than two million copies.
