The Richest Man In Babylon by George S. Clason is a personal financial classic and a book that I have enjoyed. It was written in 1926 and has a poetic style, telling stories with financial concepts in the form of parables. These stories not only discuss our relationship with money but also a broader life philosophy. It’s concept oriented and meant to stand the test of time without using financial jargon. The book illustrates the purpose and meaning that we can create in our life by using money wisely. We often get caught up in the details of a certain investment or account type but this book takes a step back and addresses fundamental wealth creation principles to live a happier, more prosperous life in the long-hall.
