My brother went on and on about this book for years. I finally read it. It has good, sound financial advice, but I think the "parable" story is a bit much. The hero of the story needs money advice. He gets good advice. It's just Mr. Clason tried to put everything into one story, and it was hard to write it the way he did.
Good advice though.

This is an awesome book on how to build wealth and become financially independent. It is so good I read it out loud to my entire family. The principles are sound...if you have the discipline to follow them you can reach your financial dreams. I highly recommend everyone read this book.

Not sure why this is rated so high. Most is common sense and guess the story is an easy way to get it across. Also perhaps considering when it was written gives it a higher rating, who knows. I'd say look to get it from the library since you won't want to keep it. Just my opinion again.

Millions have been helped by the famous \"Babylonian parables,\" hailed as the greatest of all inspirational works on thrift, financial planning, and personal wealth. In language as simple as the Bible\'s, this modern classic shows the way to the road to riches.

This book gives some basic financial information in a storytelling fashion. The principles it teaches are sound. It tends to be on the conservative side as to investments, but is a good book for someone who wants to learn principles of personal finance.

Great book. I have read dozens on personal wealth but this one really does a good job of putting it into commen sense terms. Amazing how advice from the Babylonian days is still relevant today.
