This was our next book club pick at work. This book was a great example of how history can teach us valuable lessons – particularly about money. It is full of financial advice that, while ancient, still applies in relative terms to any era. Told through short parables and stories about Babylon, Clason covers the seven different cures, the five laws of gold, and more.

Sometimes it’s hard to find important pieces that stick with you when reading a book of this sort, but I found myself wanting to put into practice much of what Clason presented. I am always on the search as to how to better save money for the future, and while there are easy ways now and people who can tell you exactly what to do – this gives you step by step guidelines to help yourself.

It was a short and quick read, very easy to understand and informative.
