George Clason, The Richest Man in Babylon.
About the book “The Richest Man in Babylon,” written by George Clason the first time I heard a few years ago. But having read several book like this I decided did not read it. Fortunately, the book “The Richest Man in Babylon” again came into my hands, and this time I read it before the New Year.
In the book “The Richest Man in Babylon,” the author, by the mouth of the characters of the book, tells a few stories from the life of the Babylonians. Each of the storytellers always returns to the advice of a wise man, who was known as the richest man in Babylon.
George Clason in the book “The Richest Man in Babylon” shows that success and wealth can reach each. Just should follow the 7 rules of wealth.
In my opinion, this book is very informative and interesting. And most importantly, it will never lose its relevance. Because, despite the fact that Babylon no longer exists, but the wealth techniques that were used at that time are relevant today.
Unfortunately in the schools they don’t offer to us read the books like “The Richest Man in Babylon».
