January 2019 Book Review – The Richest Man in Babylon

UNDERSPENT MONTHLY BOOK REVIEW. Every month I’m going to review a “money book” and share some key findings with you. The book for January 2019 was The Richest Man in Babylon. Here are some highlights: 

– “I found the road to wealth, when I decided that a part of all I earned was mine to keep (save)”

– “Live upon less than you earn” 

– “Seek advice from those who were competent through their own experiences to give it”

– “Enjoy life while you are here”

– Save 10% of everything you earn. 

– “Study carefully, before parting with thy treasure”

– “Own thy own home” 

– “Increase thy ability to earn”

– “Action will lead thee forward to the successes thou dost desire”

– “Better a little caution than a great regret”

– “We can not afford to be without adequate protection”

– “Ill fortune pursues every man who thinks more of borrowing than of repaying”
