Just finished up book. Good little lessons on how to handle money the common sense way. This book may have been written back in the 1920's of a story from the year 6000 BC but the same laws of money still are true to this day. This book should be mandatory reading for all high school kids, then just maybe people would not be a slave to the money lenders. If this was still the times of Baghdad some people would of been sold into slavery for not paying their debt to the money lender.

Money its a great servant but a bad master.

The content in this book is very basic but has value that could be presented in a 1 page bullet list. I skipped over most of the book focusing on the end of chapter messages which saved me from wasting my time reading the unnecessary and superfluous old English which was annoying and made reading difficult. This is a 1 star book at best.

A great read for anyone who needs assistance getting their finances on track. The information is related through easy to understand parables that leave you motivated to make more money, save more money and invest more money. I highly recommend this book to teenagers just graduating High School and entering the workforce for the first time. I always wish I had read this at an earlier age.

Awesome book! Loved it because of the language used. I am more confident in what I need to do on making money and keeping it around. Basic and simple knowledge everyone should be taught when it comes to money. My opinion.

This book is filled with timeless money management wisdom. I liked the messages in the book, but the old English was a little annoying/tedious to read at times.
