PDF version of "The Richest Man In Babylon"

This is a short and enjoyable read that outlines some golden rules for personal money management. It is told from the point of view of a man in ancient babylon who is in debt and covets his friend's wealth. When he asks his friend for money the friend instead sits down and teaches him how to build his way out of his troubles.

I love this book because it is accessible, timeless and so important. The context emphasises that money and difficulties managing it have been around since the earliest civilisations, but it is overall a positive message - you can tame money and make it your servant, which contributes to individual prosperity, security and happiness. It is my firm belief that, what ever your ultimate path through life, everyone should be responsible for establishing firm financial footings for themselves, if only to give them more freedom to make bold choices.

Wealth building is not a zero sum game and everyone can benefit from it.
