The Richest Man in Banylon
on October 2, 2009
I also got older version of the same book title. The key ideas that I thought were very important like "don't get so consumed with acquiring wealth that you forget to enjoy life" were taken out of this edition. Also an entire chapter was removed that taught the importance of hard work. when I recommend the book I always point to older version. Some people have opinion it is too primitive. It may be true, but time proved success is lots of time in simplicity. That's why lots of people are today lost and scared from all terminologies of "mutual funds, future stocks, short stocks, hedge funds....." it can be on few lines here what are we bombarded with. Lets start with basics of understanding and lets start from our children, when they are learning habits and that will be big help.
