Event description

Description

We will be reading and reviewing books that have a significant impact on the financial futures of so many people. The book that we have selected for our initial Book Club Meeting is "The Richest Man In Babylon."

The Richest Man in Babylon is a book by George Samuel Clason that dispenses financial advice through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon. Through their experiences in business and managing household finance, the characters in the parables learn simple lessons in financial wisdom. Originally a series of separate informational pamphlets distributed by banks and insurance companies, the pamphlets were bound together and published in book form in 1926.

We will discuss this book chapter by chapter with a full open discussion following.

Each person who joins the Book Club will receive a audio copy of the book to use as a follow along and as a way to keep abreast of the topics.
