Learn to value money. Not just consumables

It's a great book in order to get a great understanding and appreciation of money. It's told using interesting stories set at Babylon.

The first half hour taught me so much!

I have only listened to the first half hour. It seemed as if in that first half hour, it already covered everything I knew about money, and then some. It got together all the jumbled bits of knowledge I’d picked up, and packed them into some cohesive ideas. Brilliant book. Amazing to hear what the Babylonians had figured out.

Best book on finances I've ever read!

Fantastic book! Loved how financial advice is weaved into stories from over 5000 years ago. thoroughly enjoyed it and it's definitely not a typical 'dull' financial book. Great narration as well.

Great way to educate!

A great way to place a story and attach a reader emotionally to the concepts of money management.
