A Timeless Read

The Richest Man in Babylon is a book by George Samuel Clason which dispenses financial advice through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon.

Through their experiences in business and managing household finance, the characters in the parables learn simple lessons in financial wisdom. Originally a series of separate informational pamphlets distributed by banks and insurance companies, the pamphlets were bound together and published in book form in 1926.

At only 44,640 words (approximately 145 pages), it’s a quick read, filled with simple, time-tested advice, such as save a portion of all you earn. Give this gift early to your kids so they have time to read the book before heading out into the world on their own. Or better yet, read it to them!
