About the Author:

George Samuel Clason was born in Louisiana, Missouri, on November 7th, 1874. He attended the University of Nebraska and served in the United States Army during the Spanish-American War. A successful businessman, he founded the Clason Map Company of Denver, Colorado and published the first road atlas of the United States and Canada. In 1926, he issued the first of a famous series of pamphlets on thrift and financial success, using parables set in ancient Babylon to make each of his points. These were distributed in large quantities by banks and insurance companies and became familiar to millions, the most famous being “The Richest Man in Babylon,” the parable from which the present volume takes its title. These “Babylonian parables” have become a modern inspirational classic.

From AudioFile:

Originally published in 1926, sprinkled with King James English, and narrated with Shakespearean intensity by the able Richard Ferrone, this is a high- impact personal finance audio that sounds like it's speaking to us from the time of Jesus. Captivating fables gently urge listeners to use their talents to accumulate money, invest a tenth of what's earned, spend thoughtfully on necessities, save for the future, and avoid risks. A well-crafted analysis explains what separates the ownership class from the class of people who work for others. We're reminded also that our place in the pecking order depends on our internal values and the way we manage our money.
