“The Richest Man In Babylon” by George Samuel Clason
A tale of the man who became the richest citizen of ancient Babylon. Not only are the stories beautifully presented, they provide the clues – secrets as some may call it – to wealth and prosperity which are very valid in current times.
A collection of parables detailing events which all of us can relate to. Events which shape our financial standing. Parallels can easily be drawn and adapted to modern life, for the lessons taught are the basis of financial success. To some a secret, to others wise lessons. Simple lessons, yet ones we likely take for granted and do not give sufficient attention in our daily actions. With themes like “seven cures for a lean purse” and “five laws of gold”, the author of The Richest Man In Babylon takes us on a journey through our own life, reflecting on the choices we made helping us, or holding us back from attracting wealth. Read about the secret steps attracting wealth.
