Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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
“Captivating fables gently urge listeners to use their talents to accumulate money, invest a tenth of what’s earned, spend thoughtfully on necessities, save for the future, and avoid risks. A well-crafted analysis.”  AudioFile
