    It is a good book for sure, but the wording is so annoying such as "thy," "thou," and "art." Who uses these words nowadays? It says original edition so I understand but I wish they changed these words to you, your, or are.1. Start your purse to fattening2. Control your expenditures3. Make your gold multiply4. Guard your treasures from loss5. Make of your dwelling a profitable investment6. Insure a future income7. Increase your ability to earnThese are the simple rules to money, but this book does not teach "HOW" to do it. It talks about theory and what is ideal about money. If you want to learn about a good money mindset and general, simple rules, then read this book.

    Just thought I should write this review as a warning to others. The Richest Man in Babylon is one of my favorite books. It's a great "back to the basics" look at finances. When I'm off with my finances, I dig out my copy of this book. I thought about doing a study group with some members of my church. So, I wanted to check this one out because the "Now Revised and Updated for the 21st Century" part of the title led me to believe that it would be a more modern version maybe removing the thee's and thou's... kinda like an NIV vs KJV of the Bible. I WAS MISTAKEN!!!It's both taller and wider than my current beat up version but the font they used is soooo small that I couldn't bring myself to make a detailed comparison- unlike the cover and back cover which are huge in comparison. They jammed 160 pages into 88 POORLY!!! I've never sent a book back before, but this one must go back!!!So get the book, but not this version!!!

    I read this book years ago. As a result I listened to one piece of advice and now will have a comfortable retirement.Because I was a Christian I believed that I should tithe 10% of my income. I was tithing on my net income, not my gross. In my heart I knew that I should be tithing on my gross iincome. After reading this book, I decided that I should tithe on my gross, but in addition I should tithe (10%) to myself as well. That retirement is what got me through the crash in 2008 and has allowed me to purchase a small retirement property.

    This is one of the most inspiring work that I have read on the subject of personal success. It strengthened my faith in hard work, self discipline, and positive attitude. This book was recommended by the late Jim Rohn, one of the greatest business philosophers of our time. I have been re-ordering this book as a gift to my children, friends, and co-workers. The 2015 edition from Magdalene Press has been rated as a better version than the other editions due to its larger print. Although I have to pay more for it, the quality is worth the higher price. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for inspiration, who is on the path of self development.

    I wish i would have followed this rule in my youth. Though I would recommend one tenth first and foremost returned to our Maker (the one who gives wisdom and makes it all possible), followed by one tenth to self, 6 tenth for household, clothes, etc. and two tenth debts etc. Otherwise cannot fault this most excellent and useful advice; held my interest and finished it in less than half a day. I look forward to following returning tithe and offering with these practical suggestions. Great book!

    I buy this book by the case and give it to all the young people (14-25) in my neighborhood. It's an easy read and gives seven basic principles on saving and investing money. I was raised on the 10% rule and have passed it on to the next generation. It is written in parable form, so it's interesting as well as instructive. I highly recommend this book of wisdom for the youth in anyone's life.

    This is a fantastic book. It is perfect for teaching the basics of saving and wealth creation to anyone not there in their life yet. It holds and illustrates well some simple but key ideas to financial discipline and growing your money so that it works for you. This is the first book I recommend to anyone who wants to start down the patch to financial freedom. I have bought more than one copy for friends. My fiance is reading it now and my children will read it some day too. There are other, more advanced, books to read after this one that build on this foundation but it essentially all starts here and this book words it better than any other I have encountered.

    Looking back on the last 50 years of my life, one of best things that ever happened to me was my wife's uncle telling me to buy and read this book. That was a year before I shipped out for Vietnam.A few years after I returned, I remembered his words when we found out he had passed and I bought the book. We had two kids, paycheck to paycheck, and no savings. I read the book and it hit home; hard. Slowly, week-by-week, we started to build savings. Now, we have a good retirement, well off and secure. This book started it off.Easy to read and understand, timeless message. This book should be required reading for all school kids. It doesn't espouse greed like Think and Grow Rich. It simply teaches that you already have the ability to grow your prosperity from what you already have.READ THIS BOOK and change your life forever.
