Pros:A complex subject explained with simple stories.

Cons:Too simple for some.

The Bottom Line: This will ensure your retiral years are comfortable.


This is a great book. You'll read it in no time - it only has about 140 pages. But in these few pages, Clason describes an attitude to money that everyone should have but few do.

This book isn't like other books you'll find on how to get rich. For a start, it doesn't advise the 'get rich quick' schemes. Rather, it uses the 10% 90% method. That is to say for each pound, dollar or euro you have, 10 pence or cents is yours to keep. You have probably heard the saying 'Pay yourself first'. All this book teaches is to keep a set percentage of your money and put it to good use to make more money.

Most similar books can be quite boring. The subject of money doesn't excite a lot of people; that's why accountants are often drab characters. This one, however, is written as a story about a few characters in the ancient city of Babylon. The city is known for its prosperity and civilised society. The author has done research on the history of Babylon, and explains how its society operated. So as well as being taught how to look after your money, you are also learning a little history.
