About the book
The Richest Man in Babylon reveals the secrets of wealth. It was written in the 1920s as a pamphlet stylized as the parables of Ancient Babylon. What can this book teach modern people? The parables of George Clayson in simple language, through living examples, reveal the basic principles of financial well-being. Cobby and Benzir work hard day in and day out, but no matter how hard they try, money slips through their fingers. Then they turn to their fabulously rich childhood friend for advice. And he tells them how he got rich. Instead of the initial capital, which he did not have, he used other resources — time and knowledge. And he combined his energy with the knowledge of the laws of enrichment. The advice of this book can be trusted because the author himself applied it in his life.
• Learn the simple rules of capital replenishment.
• Increase savings, manage them correctly and not live in debt.
• Realize that work can be one of the greatest joys in life
