The Richest Man in Babylon

The Richest Man in Babylon

This is one of my favorite books finance books, due to the way the book discusses financial issues still faced in this generation. The Richest Man in Babylon is a book by George Samuel Clason that dispenses financial advice through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon. Through their experiences in business and managing household finance, the characters in the parables learn simple lessons in financial wisdom.

This books is a great read or listen, due to the listener not being required to look at any graphs. The english used within the book is quite dated but I think the syntax makes the book more engaging. I would recommended this book to anyone who wants to understand personal finance and the value of paying yourself first.
