What others have to say about The Richest Man in Babylon
"What can a book written in the 1920s tell modern investors about their finances? A whole lot if it's George Clason's delightful set of parables that explain the basics of money. This is a great gift for a graduate or anyone who seems baffled by the world of finance and a wonderful, refreshing read for even the most experienced investor." - Los Angeles Times.
"My mentor, Jim Rohn, told me to get this book and so I did. Wow! Never had anyone taught me about financial independence before. We didn't get taught this stuff in school. In simple parables, this book has taught me some very simple steps to help me achieve financial independence. I thoroughly recommend it!" - Paul Hopfensperger, UK Politician, Businessman, Speaker and 3 time English Channel Swimmer.
