I have just finished reading a fantastic and timeless book. It has been in print for many many years, and I had seen it often, although it never ever really appealed to me for some reason.
However, just this Sunday I was in the mood for a good inspirational read so headed over to Amazon. After searching I then saw the book was again, so I went to order the kindle edition for the bargain price of 99p.
Annoyingly, amazon could not process the order so I tried again. Still no joy! Different card needed maybe? So I tried one of the other cards stored on my account. Nothing but the same message and a telephone number to call if the error persisted.
Growing increasingly frustrated, I Googled the title of the book. And there it was, free to download. A nice result, not for saving 99p but because I wanted it now.
Anyway my free book that I wanted to pay for was called “The Richest Man in Babylon” And although only seventy odd pages long on my ipad, I can safely say it is one of the best books money could buy [if amazon took my payment] on creating wealth.
In fact, they should make this compulsory reading at business school. It’s that good.
If you want to know how to get rich slowly but surely then this is the book for you.
Although in a roundabout sort of way I have been doing some of the teachings from the book I just found it very inspiring and reassuring that I’m on the right path.
It’s strange that I never fancied reading it before, but there you go. Obviously try to get it on Amazon but if not here is the link for you to download it free.
The principles and style in the book remind me very much of how Vince Stanzione talks [if that makes sense]. And whilst reading I did wonder if he had read it also?
Get it now, read it and start to apply, if you’re looking for a way to improve your finances.
One of the key principles in the book I heard in a film once and thought what a good idea it was. Can’t remember the name of the film, but Cameron Diaz was in it and she saved 10% of everything she had ever earned. The conclusion being she had a huge lump of money saved for when she needed it most.
