Recensioner

Good book. It is also a quick read. However, much of the wisdom that he shares is already abundant and the challenge is not in what to do to but acquiring the discipline to do it. I only wish the conversational language was a little simpler.

作者以巴比倫最有錢的人(The Richest Man in Babylon,原書書名)之口
以故事的方式傳達基礎的理財概念
大綱是:把10%的錢留下來、減掉非必要支出、找專家把存下來的錢拿去投資
可能是因為原書是1926年出版的
套用到現在環境的話大概是比餓不死好一些吧
以現在的房價收入比,買房的難度……
--
每個篇章的結尾有「這樣做,才會有錢」由作者總結——原以為單純是這樣
直到讀到「有餘力的話,可以另外再購置一些房產做投資」故事中完全沒提到的內容
而故事中頂多提到「租房子不如貸款買間房子」
驚覺這部分不像是作者寫的內容
文中不時穿插「致富祕訣 XX」插入點也很奇怪,往往放在對話之間
不知原書是不是就這樣寫,不過這二部分我是當出版社亂加料就是了

In short this book is about...
1. Saving money and
2. Investing that money intelligently to make more money.

This is THE book which I wish I started reading 10 years ago.... I dislike economics and yet this book made so much sense to me because it was filled with stories. Think of Aesop's fables - this book is kind of like that because each chapter is its own specific story so you can start reading chapter 5, followed by chapter two, then move on to chapter 9, followed by chapter 3 it doesn't really matter they are all individual stories that make sense by themselves no interconnection across them all.

Although when you start reading this book the first golden nugget -"A part of all your own is yours to keep" - is a very important lesson, for me this wasn't the most important lesson. I found the chapter on the camel trader of Babylon (where he talked about the soul of a slave versus the soul of a free man) and the final chapter on the luckiest man from Babylon to be the two chapters that really spoke to me.

I would definitely recommend to keep reading this book every three months just so that the concepts stay in your mind continuously.
