Publisher's Summary

"As a young man, I came across George S. Clason's classic 1926 book The Richest Man in Babylon, which offered commonsense financial advice told through ancient parables. I recommend it to everyone." (Tony Robbins, in Money: Master the Game)

The ancient Babylonians were the first people to discover the universal laws of prosperity. In The Richest Man in Babylon, George S. Clason reveals their secrets for creating, growing, and retaining wealth.

Through these entertaining tales of merchants, tradesmen, and herdsmen, you'll learn how to save more out what you earn, get out of debt, put your money to work, attract good luck, choose wise investments, and safeguard a lasting fortune.

Excellent book

The book was fabulous but the reader was really challenging. He was fantastic with pronunciation but was so monotone it was easy to loose focus. This is a great book but the reader needs to change to make it excellent.

Great storytelling!

The story helps keep you entertained as the book covers some very basic yet extremely fundamental concepts that everyone should be using with their finances! I especially enjoyed the section with the gold lender.

I've listened to this book 3 times now.

this book never gets old with the wisdom it carefully illustrates. it's very easy to understand and the reader has a good voice for telling the stories. everyone seeking financial wisdom should read this book at least once.

Lousy Narrator

It’s a great book but the narrator is terrible, you can’t understand half of what he says. Do not get this audible book! I’m saving you the time

Fabulous book.

This book was recommended to me many years ago. I bought a copy but failed to read it.
Thank you Audible for reintroducing me to this fabulous little book. I wish I had read it all those years ago, but will be listening to it regularly from now on!

Enjoyable listen with some important key points

I really enjoyed this book and the story it told. It made some important keys points told by way of the story which was easy to listen to although I felt the points could have been made more succinctly. I would still recommend it as it was easy to listen to despite the language used.
