In short this book is about...
1. Saving money and
2. Investing that money intelligently to make more money. ( )

This is THE book which I wish I started reading 10 years ago.... I dislike economics and yet this book made so much sense to me because it was filled with stories. Think of Aesop's fables - this book is kind of like that because each chapter is its own specific story so you can start reading chapter 5, followed by chapter two, then move on to chapter 9, followed by chapter 3 it doesn't really matter they are all individual stories that make sense by themselves no interconnection across them all.

Although when you start reading this book the first golden nugget -"A part of all your own is yours to keep" - is a very important lesson, for me this wasn't the most important lesson. I found the chapter on the camel trader of Babylon (where he talked about the soul of a slave versus the soul of a free man) and the final chapter on the luckiest man from Babylon to be the two chapters that really spoke to me.

I would definitely recommend to keep reading this book every three months just so that the concepts stay in your mind continuously. ( )

For a long time, I didn't understand this book; and I bet many of you didn't either.

Stylistically speaking this book is influenced, in a weird way, by Voltaire. Why you might ask?

The book, with its parables, captures something which is seldom caught in this kind of books: The human spirit.

This book doesn't talk only about money, this book also talks about advice, whom to trust and not trust, the value of work, how a man looks upon himself, various kinds of workers and father-child relationships.

Why is this, one might ask?

Well, it's because the author understood something that it's seldom understood: Being successful with gold and, what many call today, "philosophical Jimbo talk" about the value of work and man are strongly tied together.

My favourite story is near the end of a book, it's The Ca,eò Trader of Babylon.

"Where the determination is, the way can be found" this phrase doesn't capture the story.

Imagine being a slave in a desert, without water or food, you don't know where you are. Your master, if he finds you, will kill you. If you return to your hometown you will be assaulted by debt, this is if you can even find it.

In those desert sands, that slave saw the world through a different lens, a more active and abstract one.

When he returned to Babylon he was a changed man, he repaid all his debt (with time) and managed to become a wealthy merchant.

If there is but one thing that you can carry away from this book, be it this: Your problems don't matter, your attitude toward them matter. If you go through life with a slave soul, over-indulging in pleasures and running away from challenges your problems will devour you. If by contrast, you go through life with a free man soul, never overindulge or shrink from work, then your problem will go away. With time. It might take a whole, but you will get there, eventually.

Simple tales, well told. Fairly sound financial advice. ( )

Fun at the start and a bit corny towards the end, but overall enjoyed listening to this one. Kind of a historical motivator with timeless advice about controlling your own $$ future. ( )
