The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason

The Richest Man in BabylonThe Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a tremendous book because it does what few other authors are able to do: It communicates a clear message quickly and efficiently that can change your life. That's it. Most wisdom, at its core, is extremely simple, but we find ways to complicate until it isn't understandable. The message of this book is to live on less than you earn, pay yourself first, invest conservatively and work hard to reap the benefits of following those steps. I love the simplicity and directness, as well as its readability, thanks to its short story form.

I highly recommend you read and implement this book in some way in your personal finance strategy.
