Publisher's Summary

The Richest Man in Babylon is a 1926 book by George S. Clason that offers financial advice through a collection of parables purported to derive from ancient Babylon. The parables are told by a Babylonian character called Arkad, a poor scribe who became the richest man in Babylon. 

Included in Arkad's narratives are the "Seven Cures" (on how to generate wealth), and the "Five Laws of Gold" (on how to protect wealth). Crucial components of Arkad's advice are "paying yourself first", "living within your means", "investing in what you know", the importance of "long-term saving", and "home ownership”. 

The Richest Man in Babylon is considered to be a timeless inspirational guide on the subjects of financial planning and prosperity.

Zzzzzzzz

Didn't care for narrator nor the verbose old english story telling. Perhaps would be enjoyable as a read, it came highly recommended, but though I tried over several days I could not get through an hour of it.
