Praise for The Richest Man in Babylon

““I first read The Richest Man in Babylon many years ago. Its philosophy worked for me then, and it will work now for anyone with the good sense to stick to it. I think it ought to be read by every young man or woman with ambition to make something of life.”—Van Allen Bradley, Chicago Daily News "[Clason's] 1926 personal finance classic."—The Independent (UK) "Recently, several readers asked me for recommendations on books that introduce teenagers—and even pre-teens—to investing... My favorite, and one that I always mention, is The Richest Man in Babylon. Though published nearly 90 years ago, the financial advice dispensed by author George S. Clason will always be relevant to a new generation of readers. Set in ancient Babylon, the characters learn simple lessons about money and investing throughout the collection of short stories."—Steve Rosen, Chicago Tribune "Full of time-tested advice on saving and investing."—Michelle Singletary, The Washington Post”
