P.T. Barnum's Golden Rules for Money Getting (better know as "The Art of Money Getting"), are as accurate today as when they were written. Some may Argue that as time passes by, the examples in the art of Money Getting become dated, but the lessons learned are still pointed and accurate. Phineas Taylor Barnum,(P.T. for short) lived between 1810-1891 and was a visionary in his day. P.T. Barnum is of course most famous for the circus that still bears his name 120 years after his death. It amazes me how prudent Barnum's wisdom is especially in today's tough economic times. He clearly displays a strong fear of debt in The Art of Money Getting that would have, and will still serve many Americans (or anyone else for that matter) extremely well. Had more of us learned from past wisdom would the same mistakes get repeated so regularly? As I read The Art of Money Getting by P.T. Barnum, I'm absolutely shocked to see him foreshadowing ideas of current economic theories, but doing so in metaphors that make it simple for anyone to understand and remember. Reading a paragraph that starts "A few years ago, before kerosene oil was discovered" ... lesson's of "penny wise and pound foolish" is still one that needs teaching day in and day out in every home. "A penny here, and a dollar there, placed at interest, goes on accumulating, and in this way the desired result is attained. It requires some training, perhaps, to accomplish this economy, but when once used to it, you will find there is more satisfaction in rational saving than in irrational spending." If all you get form the reading of this classic is the above lesson then you've gotten 100 times what you've paid. Enjoy the timeless wisdom contained herein and happy reading.

About the Author:

Phineas Taylor Barnum (July 5, 1810 – April 7, 1891) was an American showman, businessman, scam artist and entertainer, remembered for promoting celebrated hoaxes and for founding the circus that became the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Although Barnum was also an author, publisher, philanthropist, and for some time a politician, he said of himself, "I am a showman by profession...and all the gilding shall make nothing else of me," and his personal aims were "to put money in his own coffers." Barnum is widely but erroneously credited with coining the phrase "There's a sucker born every minute." Barnum became a small-business owner in his early twenties, and founded a weekly newspaper, before moving to New York City in 1834. He embarked on an entertainment career, first with a variety troupe called "Barnum's Grand Scientific and Musical Theater," and soon after by purchasing Scudder's American Museum, which he renamed after himself. Barnum used the museum as a platform to promote hoaxes and human curiosities. The circus business was the source of much of his enduring fame. He established "P. T. Barnum's Grand Traveling Museum, Menagerie, Caravan & Hippodrome," a traveling circus, menagerie and museum of "freaks," which adopted many names over the years.
