What is The Richest Man in Babylon about?

The Richest Man in Babylon: Six Laws of Wealth by Charles Conrad is a retelling of the timeless classic by George S. Clason's original version of The Richest Man in Babylon. 

This book reveals the secret of wealth creation and how to keep it. The book relates the fundamentals of finance in a storytelling setting. I can attest that this book is hard to put down. Just ask my husband about it. You know, that feeling when you'd want to know what's going to happen next in the story.

I haven't read the original version by George S. Clason yet, however, I like this version by Charles Conrad's. It's short, straightforward and easy to read.

I understand that many people would prefer to buy the original version. Check out The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason on Amazon. But, if you want to get the shorter -- takes only 15 minutes to read, straight to the point version, then get this book by Charles Conrad.

The Richest Man in Babylon Book Review

As my husband puts it, "Short, simple and easy to read. This will surely help people who are struggling with their finances if the laws mentioned are received and applied."


RATING: 5/5

Before ending the review of The Richest Man in Babylon: Six Laws of Wealth by Charles Conrad, let me part with this sage advice,


"For true wealth is freedom, while debt is slavery. 
No matter how rich a man appears — 
if he rides in a bronze chariot and wears fine robes—
if he has purchased such luxuries on credit, 
he is ultimately a slave to his creditors."
