Book Summary:

What an awesome book. I really enjoyed this book. The tips it gives for securing financial peace of mind are simple but actionable. The book is older so the wording takes a little to warm up to (think thy, thou, etc).

The book is told through a series of stories about ancient Babylons and how they lost, found, and kept their wealth.
