Customer Reviews of The Richest Man In Babylon
I have one of the
1995 editions. The author has updated and expanded the 2007 edition. I liked it well enough that I bought 4 more copies for my college age grandchildren. In fable form he tells how to pay yourself first,and let your wealth grow by reinvesting the interest.
In this addition he also tells how to get out of debt honorably.
He has much good wisdom for younger folks to follow
POWERFUL, VERY POWERFUL BOOK!
I am continually amazed at how a book so small can contain so much content and be so powerful. This book should be mandatory reading beginning at the grade school level through college and should be given as a gift right along with a diploma.
I took the advice of firstname.lastname@example.org who recommended 'The Millionaire next Door" and "More Weath without Risk" and bought and have read both. Both of these books are in the same status as "The Richest Man in Bablyon" and should also be required reading by anyone who is serious about their financial future. I am now giving "Richest Man in Bablyon" as a accessory gift to a cash gift at weddings and graduations.
AWESOME BOOK, AWESOME WISDOM
This book should be required reading in every school district in the country. I first read it 35 years ago when I was beginning my career. But, the information in this very short read will stand on its own merits forever. Please buy this for yourself, for your child or for your grandchildren.

A must read and routine re-read.
For me, there are several core books and other sources of information that that I re-read or re-listen-to periodically so I don't stray too far from their sage advice.
"The Richest Man in Babylon" is one of those core sources. I prefer reviewing this source by listening to the CD while driving in my car.
With regard to powerful personal finance, if you only ever have ONE core book/source make this your one book/CD.
Here's to your future, powerful choices and continued powerful financial choices!
