    Though some of the advises offered in this book are familiar ones already , it makes a lot more sense in the format with which it was written . It takes on practical ways of the ancient successful men of Babylon , people who started from scratch as well as people who had fallen from high levels and had faced failures . This book not only provided simple principles one can follow to become wealthy and successful but also highlighted how it was applied to different works of life. This is an old book set in ancient Babylon but I can tell you every word as written in this book is still very much relevant and applicable to our today economy , am glad I read this book from start to finish and I wasn't bored even for a moment .
