Overview

This fabulous rags to riches story is destined to be a classic of inspirational and personal success literature. It's a long-awaited sequel to the greatest of all motivational books on personal wealth creation, The Richest Man in Babylon. A treasure for the 21st century, The Richest Man in Persia, by Brian Morgan, has been called "a fascinating roadmap to personal success with peace of mind."
Millions of people around the world have read and profited by The Richest Man in Babylon, by George S. Clason. In 1926, George Clason, from Missouri in America, issued the first of what was to become a famous series of pamphlets on financial success. He used parables set in ancient Babylon to make his points. The pamphlets were distributed by banks and insurance companies and were loved by millions of readers around the world.
The most famous of these pamphlets was The Richest Man in Babylon, so this became the obvious title when a number of the parables were gathered together into a book. It has gone through many reprints and is still on best-seller lists some eight decades after George Clason first set pen to paper.
Now read the story of The Richest Man in Persia. It contains "the untold wealth secrets of Persia", as excavated from the ruins of "the wealthiest city under the sun", Persepolis, not far from Babylon in the ancient Persian Empire, but its message is for the 21st century.
Author Brian Morgan has won numerous state and national awards in journalism and a prestigious national award as an author. He has appeared on best-seller lists in the United Sates and the United Kingdom and has been translated for Chinese, Vietnamese and Japanese readers. His writing has been internationally acclaimed.
In the wake of the financial catastrophe that unfolded in the first years of the 21st century, the strategies in this book are timely indeed and could change the lives of millions, as The Richest Man in Babylon has done.
The Richest Man in Persia (more than 38,000 words and 200 pages) was inspired by Clason's work, but embraces fresh ideas and the latest concepts in personal wealth creation through investment and business, written in a similar "parable" style and set in ancient Persia. This "sequel" covers concepts like:
The personal testimony of the richest man in Persia.
The 11 Codes of Riches.
The nine rules of time mastery.
The four basic ways of making money.
The magic power of compounding and leverage.
The factors that multiply the value of investments.
The Seven Business Secrets of the Masters.
The book opens with Alexander's conquest of Persia (thus far true history) and tells of the richest man in Persia hastily inscribing the Codes of Riches on clay tablets as Alexander marched on his city (the legend). It tells how fires set by Alexander baked the tablets and preserved them (thousands of tablets were actually preserved this way).
The Richest Man in Persia has a plus factor. It does contain wealth secrets many of us crave, but it cautions that there are things money can't buy and that the highest values cannot be counted in coin.
The book is a strong advocate against greed, but an equally strong advocate for seeking abundance for the good it can do - as a means to an end, not an end in itself. Money, it says, must not come at the cost of happiness.
The book is full of meat and contains treasure on every page. It's a road map for the journey from rags to riches we can all help each other make, and should be on the bookshelf of every person who seeks a better life.
