The Richest Man in Babylon – George S. Clason
(Note: I read this book in 2008, and this is a repost of a review I did then in Visual Bookshelf on my Facebook)
A collection of common sense. I’d recommend this as the first book for personal finance one should read. It’s overall short and explains the concepts in short stories that stick. It’s hard to find a book that explain these simple basic concepts without rambling for hundreds of pages. Although it could’ve been even shorter, the actual message could be in 2-4 pages. Still a nice read on a trip!
Conclusion: Read it, it’s super short.
