More About George S. Clason
George Samuel Clason was born in Louisiana, Missouri, on November 7th, 1874. He attended the University of Nebraska and served in the United States Army during the Spanish-American War. A successful businessman, he founded the Clason Map Company of Denver, Colorado and published the first road atlas of the United States and Canada. In 1926, he issued the first of a famous series of pamphlets on thrift and financial success, using parables set in ancient Babylon to make each of his points. These were distributed in large quantities by banks and insurance companies and became familiar to millions, the most famous being "The Richest Man in Babylon," the parable from which the present volume takes its title. These "Babylonian parables" have become a modern inspirational classic.

Forget "The Secret" Get Real, Get this book.... May 21, 2007
The "secret" is not merely "positive thinking", as some modern self-help writers (and Oprah) would have you believe. For those of us that live in the real world is also some hard work and self-sacrifice involved. This classic book contains the very advice that most sensible parents would want their child to hear, but unfortunately -- most kids don't listen to their parents. Of course, unlike this book, most parents these days don't speak in (supposed) Babylonian parables -- maybe if they did, kids would listen more. So give them this book in addition to your parental nagging and hope they learn the REAL secrets of success in this world.
Oh yeah, and if you haven't read this book yet, it's a quick read and well worth your time.
