The parables are told by a fictional Babylonian character called Arkad, a poor scribe who became the “richest man in Babylon”. Included in Arkad's advice are the “Seven Cures” (or how to generate money and wealth), and the “Five Laws of Gold” (or how to protect and invest wealth). A core part of Arkad's advice is around “paying yourself first”, “living within your means”, “investing in what you know”, the importance of “long-term saving”, and “home ownership”.
The content is from a series of pamphlets distributed by U.S. banks and insurance companies in 1920–24; the pamphlets were bound together and published as a book in 1926. The book is often referred to as a classic of personal financial advice, and appears in modern recommended reading lists on personal financial advice and wealth management, which has kept the book in print almost 90 years after its first edition with over 2 million copies sold.
Clason himself published an illustrated hardback edition in 1930 titled The Richest Man in Babylon and Other Stories which now sells for USD 1,250.
The unusual structure of the book has inspired many modern derivative works providing further discussion and insights on the parables.

I enjoyed reading this book so much, it serves as inspiration of what can be accomplished with hard work, dedication and humility.
If anyone wants to get ahead in life, one just needs to follow the advise given in it... advise that is easy to follow but not always easy to keep, which means that if a person really wants to get ahead in life they also have to show tremendous determination in the face of adversity and humility to ask and follow the counsel of wiser men.

Success means accomplishments as the result of our own efforts and abilities. Proper preparation is the key to our success. Our acts can be no wiser than our thoughts. Our thinking can be no wiser than our understanding.

No endorsement could be higher than that of practical men who appreciate its teachings because they, themselves, have worked up to important successes by applying the very principles it advocates

Ningún respaldo podría ser mayor que el de los hombres prácticos que aprecian sus enseñanzas porque ellos mismos han logrado éxitos importantes aplicando los mismos principios que defiende.
