The Richest Man in Babylon is a book by George Samuel Clason which dispenses financial advice through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon. Through their experiences in business and managing household finance, the characters in the parables learn simple lessons in financial wisdom. By basing these parables in ancient times, but involving situations that modern people can understand and identify with, the author presents these lessons as timeless wisdom that is as relevant today as it was back then. The book began in 1926 as a series of informational pamphlets. Banks and insurance companies began to distribute these pamphlets, and the most famous ones were eventually compiled into this book.

This booking should be read by everyone who seeks a lifetime worth of financial advise. It certainly is not short on relatable experiences of contemporary lifestyle, nor does it lack in fundamental teachings that are easy to understand and to exercise. "Where there is determination, the way can to be found".
