The book is about the fundamental principles of personal finance, such as capital protection and risk/reward ratio. The first principle illustrated in the book though is a general one, i.e. determination. You need to focus your wishes on attainable goals in order to become rich. And rich must be understood as "in a financially safe position", not necessarily as wealthy. From this point of view this book is a good guide for those who need basic know-how in personal finance, or maybe want to get out of a debt spiral.
The style is quite characteristic. It is written in pseudo-old English to mimic the ancient language spoken in Babylon, while still being perfectly transparent to any modern-day reader. I personally enjoyed the style a lot.
The first half of the book tends to repetition.

Obvious teaching of money: how to save part of your earnings and invest wisely to roll it big.
Some good reminders which apply to all aspects of life apart from money:
"Good luck can be enticed by accepting opportunity."
"Where the determination is, the way can be found."
