About the Author:
George Samuel Clason was born in Louisiana, Missouri, on November 7, 1874. He attended the University of Nebraska and served in the United States Army during the Spanish-American War. Beginning a long career in publishing, 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.

First of all they didn't speak English in Babylon so no need for the "thy" and "thou" and annoying quotations of hard to read or understand sentences! Could've been written in simple English without the 16th century sound. I simply couldn't read it because of this annoying fact! Sadly.
Its a fun read full of wisdom. Pay yourself first
I recommend this book to all. Simple words , but very meaningful. Great book for starting up or those who need to be reminded although you may be aware of the facts of acquiring gold.
