The Art of Money Getting (version 2)


Read by Ruth Golding

(4.7 stars; 101 reviews)

Although Barnum considered himself primarily a showman and his main goal was to put money in his own pocket, this little book, subtitled Golden Rules for Making Money does have a good deal of common sense about how to make money, and perhaps more importantly, how to keep it once you've made it. Of course, having been written nearly a century and a half ago, some of the advice may be a little dated, but it remains a very readable self-help book. (Summary by Ruth Golding) (1 hr 54 min)

Reviews

Great principles


(5 stars)

This book concisely teaches principles of prosperity. It's entertaining as well, and has real substance. The principles are simple, but even people who think they understand money often overlook these simple things. I highly recommend. The reader does an excellent job, as well.

Sound Advice


(4 stars)

This book is very dated and some of the examples had me chuckling to myself. That being said, the basic principles of this book are excellent and I'm glad I stuck it out.

Compelling if impractical


(4 stars)

It's more of a book about the mindset of acquiring wealth than much in the way of practical advice, but I did listen to it entirely in one sitting.


(5 stars)

An excellent orator, read exceptionally by Ruth Golding. The simple lessons have the most profound impacts. Thoroughly enjoyed this book.


(4.5 stars)

even if the examples are dated the ideas covered are really useful and relevant. Excellent reading by Ruth Guolding.
