The complete original text of the timeless parables that have taught millions how to achieve financial success—now available in this beautiful collector’s edition.
Anyone can build wealth and create the life they envision for themselves if they enlarge their financial understanding. As George S. Clason said, “Our acts can be no wiser than our thoughts. Our thinking can be no wiser than our understanding.” A successful entrepreneur, Clason translated his knowledge of sound financial principles into parables set in ancient Babylon. More relevant today than ever before, these tales provide straightforward lessons in the laws that govern the building of wealth. Clason’s dynamic storytelling will transport you into the Babylonian empire at its apex, where the basic principles of personal finance were born. There you’ll discover why some individuals amass riches while others become slaves to their impulses. Taken together, the parables serve as a guide to acquiring, protecting, and growing wealth. Commonsense principles detailed include:
Saving a percentage of every paycheck
Living within your means
Increasing your capacity for earning
Minimizing risk in financial investments
Securing an income stream
Attracting good luck by conquering procrastination
Developing a strong work ethic
Opportunity comes to those who are prepared to embrace it. Now is your chance to unearth gems of wisdom from the ruins of ancient Babylon and chart your own path to financial independence.
