The Richest Man in Babylon Review – Great Book

Over the last few days I listened to a classic book called

The Richest Man in Babylon

by George S. Clason 1926

This is an excellent book that has a series of short stores that provides financial insight for your daily living. The book takes about 4 hours to listen to and it is worth it. I like listening to books because they provide insight into what the author is trying to convey by the listening to the storyteller.

Some of the ideas I took away from the book are:

1.Save 1/10th of all you make by paying yourself first (savings)

2.Take 2/10ths of what you make and pay your creditors

3.Take 7/10s of what you make and live on it. After a while you won’t even notice that the money you are using to pay creditors and to save is missing from your daily life.

4.Work hard and good things will come your way.

These tools have stood the test of time. Babylon may be gone, but their ideas for a sound living remain.
