“[Clason’s] 1926 personal finance classic.”—The Independent (UK)

“Recently, several readers asked me for recommendations on books that introduce teenagers—and even pre-teens—to investing… My favorite, and one that I always mention, is The Richest Man in Babylon. Though published nearly 90 years ago, the financial advice dispensed by author George S. Clason will always be relevant to a new generation of readers. Set in ancient Babylon, the characters learn simple lessons about money and investing throughout the collection of short stories.”—Steve Rosen, Chicago Tribune

“Full of time-tested advice on saving and investing.”—Michelle Singletary, The Washington Post
