George S. Clason’s The Richest Man in Babylon is an early twentieth century classic about financial investment and monetary success. It rapidly became one of the best-selling books of all time. Through a series of enlightening parables set in the heart of ancient Babylon Clason provided his readers with economic tips and tools for financial success. Karen McCreadie’s brilliant interpretation of Clason’s masterpiece offers twenty-first century readers 52 simple, powerful and proven techniques to manage their finances. Inside you will discover: • How to create opportunity and become lucky with money; • Ways to make your skills and talents financially rewarding; • How to balance risk and reward to keep your finances healthy and secure; • Why radical action is often necessary in order to turn your finances around; • How to distinguish good debt from bad debt and detox your finances. This interpretation of George S. Clason’s The Richest Man in Babylon is not a substitute for the original. Its purpose is simply to show the timeless nature of Clason’s insights by bringing them to life in a contemporary context.
