Classic, classic, classic  Apr 23, 2008
I have read a lot of finance books by a lot of different authors: Bach, Chatzky, Orman, Kiyosaki just to name a few, but the "Richest Man in Babylon" is the simplest, most clear cut. It also has the least ego (thank you Eckhart Tolle). Simple is good in my case. I don't like a lot of fancy words clouding my understanding of finance. Clason repeats what a lot of other finance experts say, but the difference is that Clason said it first. So he wins. And the book is short.

The "Thou"s and "thy"s are a bit silly and annoying, I admit--but you get used to it and after a while--it's fun. The financial basics told thru parables (i.e. bible-esque tales). I read a few parts out loud to my husband and he was cracking up.

Very Disappointing  Oct 31, 2007
This book was recommended to me by a professional in the finance industry that I regard very highly.
But I could not find the book too useful. The info you get reading it is good for a child who needs to learn to save. Not that we, adults do that, but at least we know that! And then, the author just repeats the same idea over and over again, with different characters.
And I found the whole 'gold lender' paradigm soooooo outdated and unpractical!
Overall, a total no for an adult, a yes for a child.
