“What can a book written in the 1920s tell modern investors about their finances? A whole lot if it's George Clason's delightful set of parables that explain the basics of money. This is a great gift for a graduate or anyone who seems baffled by the world of finance and a wonderful, refreshing read for even the most experienced investor.”—Los Angeles Times

“Recently, several readers asked me for recommendations on books that introduce teenagers—and even pre-teens—to investing... My favorite, and one that I always mention, is The Richest Man in Babylon.

Set in ancient Babylon, the characters learn simple lessons about money and investing throughout the collection of short stories.”—Chicago Tribune
