Es war eine Fehlentscheidung, dieses Buch zu lesen. Wer Fabeln mag und die Bibel gerne liest, ist mit diesen Finanztipps vielleicht gut aufgehoben, aber nichts für mich.

Kurzzusammenfassung: Babylonier, die wie in Altengland sprechen, geben sich immer wieder wiederholende Finanztipps auf extrem einfachem Niveau. ( )

THE RICHEST MAN IN BAYLON provides a few very basic concepts, but ones that are at the root of financial success: pay yourself first, live frugally, invest wisely, don't chase returns, and don't give out your hard-earned dollars to someone who doesn't have the skills and discipline to safeguard them as you would. Whether this is the right book for you depends on whether you enjoy reading these concepts presented in an awkward, ancient style as if you're sitting around with Yul Brynner, Charleton Heston and the golden calf waiting for the Red Sea to open. What's here is certainly shorter than most other financial success tomes on the market today, so in that regard, it provides more pop per page. Worth a read. ( )

This was an interesting book to listen to due to the biblical style and the setting of ancient Babylon. There are great concepts in regards to money management and wealth, however nothing that I not heard before. Whilst these financial concepts to provide great tips and advice on how to become more financially secure, I feel that in today's society it is easier said than done for the average person due to the increase in economic inequality and instability. Whilst I think that one's financial habits has a lot to do with how well off a person is, I don't think this is all the story as so much depends on the financial advantages or disadvantages that a person begins with in life.
