The Richest Man in Babylon – George S Clason
Is a book that I was meaning to read for a long time. In fact, I think it was over 3 years ago I was given the book by my mother. I can now say, that it is one of the books I have already finished this year.
The book is written in a way that you might feel your reading shakespeare, but I think it was only trying to give the impression of how people addressed each other in during this time.
What is the book about? Well, money. How to use your money in a way that will brings a comfortable way of life. It’s not about how to make a million dollars over night. It’s a collection of teachings handed down to help bring, keep and manage your wealth.
One simple idea that I am even using now myself (and it does help me manage my finances better.)
“I started to make my fortune, when I realised that one tenth of my gold was mine to keep”
Why do I talk about this book? Well, money management is easy for some and damn hard for others. This book gives simple ideas that stand up even today. When your money management is more under control. You may find yourself that little bit less stressed. You might find that you realise, I can’t go buying this and that as yet, so I have to practise patience.
Is it the best book out there? Maybe not, it’s definitely not the only one of money. However it is a short book, cheap to buy online, as well as an audiobook and maybe the best start for most people out there into better money management. Give it a read and you may find it works for you
