    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.

    This will be my child's bedtime stories and will instill in them, as it did in me, an ability to save money.
