Reviews On The Richest Man in Persia:
Amazon Top Contributor and Smashwords Five-star reviews:
Review by: Marc Kneepkens on Oct. 28, 2012 :I wish I had read this book many years ago when I started out on my own journey, fresh from school and ready to take on the world. This book is a testimony to sound business principles where bringing value is of crucial importance. Brian Morgan has presented timeless ideas in a beautiful story full of great images and examples. He has made it very clear what is important in business and in life by giving codes that can be applied anywhere and in anyone’s life. His ‘codes of riches’ can be applied to become wealthy, not only in business, but also in life. And far from being just general ideas, he describes them with many examples and in very practical ways.
If you are not too sure what your next step is in life, if you are at a crossroads, if you want to become wealthy, or if you want as much wisdom up front as possible, and avoid the path of mistakes, this book can be your compass. Read and reread it.
This book is highly recommended for young people, business people, and everyone looking for a ‘rich’ and full life. The wisdom in these words is indeed priceless.
I will recommend it to my children, my friends, my clients, and my business relations.

Review by: Fiorella on Oct. 25, 2012 :
I came across this book because the author, Brian Morgan, and I both have our websites built on the same platform and I liked the concept of his book. It tells a story from the past and then sets out in detail all the principles needed for creating wealth and personal success today.
The whole idea of the book appealed to me. First it tells a story about how a man called Tragoas became the richest man in Persia by following the wise advice of “masters” or mentors. It’s a real rags-to-riches story and a great read. It tells how he rose from shame and poverty to become a rich and respected man, before plunging into depression when trusted workers betrayed him and stole his possessions. But he rose again out of defeat to become even richer and more valuable to Persia.
The drama in the book comes when Alexander the Great invades Persia and Tragoas desperately tries to dictate his success principles for future generations. He calls them the 11 Codes of Riches and they are absolutely full of wisdom and practical advice that anyone can use.
As the owner of a web business, I was especially interested in the Seven Business Secrets of the Masters. This is really a collection of the very best small business advice I’ve seen. It’s hard to see, if business is your thing, how you would not succeed brilliantly if you followed this plan.
I recommend The Richest Man in Persia for anyone who is dissatisfied with life, or has lost a job, or just wants something better out of life. It’s a book you’ll read and then keep for reference whenever you need a boost.

Review by: Don Darkes on Oct. 08, 2012 :
What does a man who has the Tee shirt; a man who has been there and done that and can prove it; do for inspiration? He looks to the wisdom of the ancients and applies their hard earned and learned lessons to the present. Before you buy and read and learn and gain inspiration from this book, read the resume of the author, an accomplished business and thought leader, a professional writer and an accomplished teacher, who clearly has applied the principles he has used to drive his own successful careers and his own life. Then open the pages and be transported back to ancient Mesopotamia as he eloquently illustrates how and why some things and some values, like those in the greatest Book of them all, never vary. Perhaps you, like me, will read it for the first time in one sitting before you return to it again and again. This book shall remain, with its many bookmarks and dog eared pages upon my eBook shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Priceless wisdom
By Rommel J. Guzman on May 27, 2014
I like this book because the author provides an ethic based system of becoming prosperous. In our day this is the type of prosperity we should all seek out, the prosperity which is not based on capitalizing on others. Prosperity is something which should be shared from the individual to the family, the community, the country and the world.
5.0 out of 5 stars What everyone should know.
By Irene Baumgartner on January 20, 2013
I received this book as a complimentary copy. The 11 Codes of Riches is mostly common sense and full of wisdom and practical advice that anyone can use.
Anyone can learn from this book about how important it is to pay yourself first. Would highly recommend reading for all ages.
5.0 out of 5 stars. An absolute Must Read. October 24, 2012
By Vivienne Edwards
I began reading this book last night and could not put it down. I finished it today and I have to say it is one of the very best books I have read for a long time. Brian gets to the heart of business ethics in an original and compelling way. As an author and business owner myself, I found this to be not only helpful but entertaining, while making very clear, in plain and simple terms, some vital business truths. I would like to see this book in every high school and college. Even if you are not a business owner, the way of life suggested herein would benefit everyone. I should add that the style of the writing reminds me that our forefathers learned much by way of `storytelling’, and Brian has done an exemplary job as a storyteller.
