Publisher's Summary

Denis Waitley narrates the classic book written by George S. Claison in 1926, which offers financial advice through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon. Through their experiences in business and managing their personal affairs, the characters in the parables learn simple lessons in financial wisdom, as relevant in the 21st century as they were in antiquity.
As a result of this book, the use of parables to impart timeless wisdom that can be applied to present-day challenges in living successfully became popular, as evidenced by global best sellers The Greatest Salesman in the World, The One-Minute Manager, and other recent self-help books.
A recognized pioneer in the personal development movement, Denis Waitley is one of the most respected and listened-to voices on high-performance achievement. The author of 18 nonfiction books, his audio album The Psychology of Winning is the all-time best-selling program on self-mastery. The Richest Man in Babylon, according to narrator Denis Waitley, greatly influenced his understanding of the cornerstones upon which to build financial security. A banquet of priceless knowledge on capital accumulation, both philosophical and practical.

Not really unabridged

Would you recommend The Richest Man in Babylon to your friends? Why or why not?

This was listed as unabridged, but Mr. Waitley did change the order the book is in, and he changed the words to be more like how we speak today. Besides that, he also adds in his own commentary, which isn't bad, but annoying when trying to follow along with the paper copy of the book.
