    What I loved about reading this is that the principles to creating wealth in the 1920s (when this was written) are still true almost 100 years later, demonstrating that prosperity isn't some magical thing only a few special talented intelligent people with a "secret" can attain. It's really just a few simple common sense practices applied consistently with diligence and discipline to achieve progression. This book is a very good introduction into good financial management and wealth building. It What I loved about reading this is that the principles to creating wealth in the 1920s (when this was written) are still true almost 100 years later, demonstrating that prosperity isn't some magical thing only a few special talented intelligent people with a "secret" can attain. It's really just a few simple common sense practices applied consistently with diligence and discipline to achieve progression. This book is a very good introduction into good financial management and wealth building. It is very practical, simple and free of any "get rick quick" self help gimmicks which I liked. The focus is on sharing principles through a series of fables set in ancient Babylon. Here are the key things I learned from the book: * Always pay yourself first. A part of everything that you earn is yours to keep, and at minimum it should be a tenth. After that you can pay anyone you owe money to. * If you want to become wealthy, you need to learn to set aside your savings and get the "children" of those savings to earn to. Your savings should earn more savings, which in turn should also be put to use to earn more savings and so on. The source of this should be 10% of your earnings so it is consistently topped up with a small amount that multiplies itself. * Learn to live on less than you earn and then seek advice from people who have the experience and can help you make your savings work for you. * There is no such thing as luck, it is always created by people who are taking action quickly. Clason writes "Opportunity is a haughty goddess who wastes no time with those who are unprepared". So make sure you complete things you start and waste little time in executing things. You have to stay prepared - it favours the people who take action. * "Wealth grows where men exert energy." I loved this quote. By amassing and building wealth not only are you prospering, but so are the people around you. For example, if a rich man builds a big palace, has the money disappeared? No, because he has created an asset of his own that holds his wealth but also has employed brick makers, builders, architects, and so many more through exerting energy in this enterprise. * A small safe return is better than one with risk. And you should always seek to minimise those risks by getting advice from wise experienced people who have knowledge of how and where to invest. * Don't also be afraid to spend and remember it is important to live while you are still here on the planet. There is a lot to enjoy in life and a lot to explore and do. * Control your expenditures - as your income grows, so will your expenditures unless you learn to manage them continuously and seek to minimise them. Everyone has more desires than they can actually ever keep up with so a far simpler method is to reduce your wants and needs as much as possible. * Guard your investments from loss by studying very carefully the risks associated with them and work to reduce them. For example, before you lend any kind of money, make sure that the other party has the ability and the plan to be able to repay you - no matter who that might be. * This one is as true now as it was then - own the property that you live in. So instead of paying a landlord rent and it constantly being a liability, where the money never returns to you. You are paying out (via a mortgage perhaps) but in the future are not losing wealth, merely building it for the future. * Plan ahead for not just your own future but the future of the people around you that you care about so that when you are gone, they are well taken care of. You do not want to be a burden on those around you when you have passed on. * Any wealth that comes quickly leaves the same way. This is because it is normally away from knowledge and persistence - two qualities key in attaining and keeping your wealth. An idea that runs counter to what a lot of false images upheld by the media * More people want wealth than have it * Help people, but do not take on their burdens on yourself. * A little caution is better than a lot of regret * The hungrier you are for something, the more sensitive you are to the 'odors' of success and prosperity. Stay hungry

    Not a bad book, but there's little that I couldn't figure out by myself. Which is to say, in any case, not nothing. Some of the transmitted experience may prove valuable for example, and the "one-tenth saving rule" is something that even if considered abstractly may not ever be put into practice, if not encouraged externally. All in all: apply thy own good will and exert more heedfullness, and thou shall receive the gold by thee much striven for.

All in all: apply thy own good will and exert more heedfullness, and thou shall receive the gold by thee much striven for. My own rating could have been a little higher if the edition in which I'm reading the book was more refined. There are irregularities, omissions and other flaws in the punctuation for instance, and this degradates the quality of the book style. Additionally, even the font size is too small, especially because it is printed on relatively large sheets, which makes one think that someone was likely trying to cut down on printing costs.

    This book teaches you about financial management in general not in a way that throws lot of numbers and information but through wisdom and practical experience. Each chapter, it gives you the idea of the building block of taking care of your wealth to help you become a rich man. A story is told and a wisdom will gain. It can be your specific guide to wealth building because most of the wisdom in the story still applies in today's time. It's like the history is repeating itself.

    I finished #therichestmaninbabylon by author #georgesclason. It is not a book that I can recommend to all people as the writing style and way of communication is a bit outdated and relevant for some people. I wanted to finish it because its a famous book but also feel like the message was extremely simplistic and to easy tackled. I will give it 2 out of 5 stars 🌟

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It's strange how financial wisdom and advice from the Ancient Babylonian times can still be purely relevant in the modern times. The author kept the stories short and filled with wisdom and gave quick summaries at the end of every chapter. I would totally recommend this book to anyone.

    The book was good and had a valuable lesson about basic financial principles. A good read. Writing style can be hard to adjust to; however, the book has stood the test of time and is valuable to anyone searching for financial literacy.

    Through this simple story of a man you learn ecumenical truths on finance that the regular school missed to tell you. It should be read by everyone wanting to succeed in life.

    This book should probably be considered for required reading by students in high school. Simple concepts (that are often forgotten) that can enable a lifetime of financial prosperity.

    Repetitive, but a good intro to money management. Basically: save, take opportunities, work hard.

    I reach the George S. Clason version ISBN-10: 0451205367 ISBN-13: 978-0451205360 on amazon. The book overall was okay, had a bit of useful info in the beginning but I felt the story carried on too long and the style of reading is oldish. Definitely my first time reading a book like this. Pro cheap small easy to carry book with useful knowledge. Con writing style gets some time getting used to.

    Most of the learnings are good, although from today's perspective quite obvious. The fable style are a bit dated, but i give the credits to the author for using this technique a 100 years ago.

The second book take homes which again are reminders for me are to make sure that the company you keep and the things you do with those people are uplifting and move you towards your goals not away from them. Always be open to opportunities and work with the positive aspects of your persona not the negative. There is no such thing as failure, only opportunity to improve and start again. Make your desire a burning desire- your success is a reflection of how much your desire and purpose is actually real. What is your purpose? Is it consuming?

    Do not let somewhat forced usage "ol' English" discourage you. After getting used to it this book proves to be one of the best financial self-help books out there.

This book does the opposite, lessons are presented in such way that they are internalized and stick with you. Anyone with some experience in finance will recognize its advice as nothing new but timeless financial principles given in a colorful and effective way. That in turn makes people to not just "know" how to behave, but to actually apply and TAKE ACTION. This makes is it worth of your time in itself.

    I absolutely love this book! It showcases two parables that are extremely important for every person to listen to and learn. The main principle of saving 10% of all you earn throughout your lifetime seems simple enough when you hear it, but the discipline and focus required to do it are heroic. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone who wants to earn $1 more in their life; if you do then you need to listen to this and follow the principles.

    Really enjoyed these "fables" of entrepreneurial growth and personal improvement. Typical of Napoleon Hill works the meaning is personal and to be interpreted individual by the reader (or in this case listener). The Richest Man in Babylon story line is somewhat easier to understand but I think the message hidden in the Magic Story is there to be grasped by those who want to.
