Full of Wisdom...

This is a book my mom gave me many years ago, and I’d forgotten about it until I saw it on Amazon. It’s full of wisdom that transcends financial decisions; it successfully links financial decisions to other major life behaviors. Recommended reading for all age groups.

Great Advice written in an entertaining fashion...

I love this book. My husband read it years ago and asked me to read it. I have to admit that I wasn’t super motivated to read it at first, but I’m glad I did. It’s very simplistic in it’s message, but some times the simple messages are the ones we miss. It’s written as a fable, and gives great advice about what to do with your finances. Since I first read it years ago, I usually buy 4 or 5 copies each year and give them out to new graduates, etc. It’s not very long so go for it!

The Happiest person in California...

I was introduced to this small paperback by a fellow traveler onboard an American Airlines flight to Dallas/Fort Worth. We shared books and this is the book he gave me.
On my flight to Los Angeles, I read the book and discovered that it was not such a small book afterall. The information it contained was larger than life, it made life easier. The fundamental practices it explained made good sense to me and I started applying the priciples of good business to my life…and it was a real eye openner.
Upon my arrival to Los Angeles, I gave the book to my nephew, who also started to use the priciples found in the “small” paperback and now, even with the recession, is slowly making a good life for himself.
I purchased three more copies and sent them to my daughters for Christmas and they are reading it and hopefully will apply these basic but life securing priciples found in this book.
So now having said all this, what is the real key to the success of the richest man in Babylon? It is steadfastness, and confidence in the priciples found in the book.
Start small, but grow, there are NO fast solutions to life, but being steadfast and confident in yourself that you will be secure in your life, you will make it. Am I a millionaire? pray no, but I am comfortable and happy in my life and that is what we all really seek….
