A bit too contrived for me, but if the usual jargon-filled financial independence advice leaves your head spinning or eyes wiggling, give this a shot. It covers all the key points in a series of stories. Very easy to read, very good advice... just a bit heavy handed is all.

nice tale based guide for getting out of debt and building profits. and a great reminder what was life like in ancient times when a creditor was able to sell you into slavery.

Highly recommended. I borrowed an audiobook from my city library via OverDrive and it was great. The parables are very easy to understand and the voice of the Narrator is amazing. I let it played overnight when the audiobook was still on loan because the soothing voice of the narrator over a historical timeline would make me fall asleep faster if I wanted to. Even my friend experienced and said the same.

Anyway, I just ordered a book in Amazon for my family to read and to build up my home library

A classic book for personal finance. If you haven't read another book about personal finance, I would definitely recommend it. However, the ideas of this book have been explained to so many other books so it wouldn't worth your time/effort if you have read other personal finance books. However, it is a classic.

A thought provoking book. It proves some of the most basic principles of money are timeless.

The study guide is a great tool to begin thinking about and applying the principles as well as provide how the principles apply to today's world.

The principles laid out are 5 stars. The issue is the version narrated in audible is in Victorian English. Because of that the reading was 2 stars.
What a great book!!!

Should have read this book years ago. I recommended The Richest Man In Babylon with everyone I know. This should be a must read for everyone!!!

Dear Jim Rohn,
I am officially part of the 10%. I read the book. Moreover, I am happy to report that I am walking, if not slowly, the path. I am saving 10%. I am thinking more treasure and less about trinkets. For anyone considering the book, I would relay that reading it as an adult is like reading "The Little Engine that Could" for self-motivation. Veiled in allegory with noticeable moth-holes, there are certain undeniable truths woven into this narrative. While I wish this had been read to me

a quick read that's worth it's weight in gold

Having just read this book in record time, I can tell you that its lessons, while not unknown to the common man, are presented in such a way as to drive home their point, while keeping you engaged in the narrative.

The study guide included in this edition serves as a nice little summation of the main points at the end of each chapter. I found it helpful as a quick review to further strengthen the lessons of the story.

I am beyond thrilled to have dis

Third reading

The fundamentals don't change. Good to reintroduce myself to the time tested truths about managing money and embracing opportunity. No matter where you are on the path, this is a good read.

I like that this book is short but still gives examples to set the lesson down solidly.

Was an inspirational book when I was in my late teens. Now some 50 years later it seems so sophomoric. Guess I learned something from it enough to move past it

Read the real book. This version takes tiny blurbs of the real thing and overlays common business book jargon. The full stories are much more powerful.

Everyone should have to read this book. Quick and to the point. All kids graduating from high school, anyone who has to earn a living, should all read it.

Did not like the book at all. The book is trying to give business advices by telling stories. It is much of a novel than a business book.
