The Legend of the Monk and the Merchant

I was interested in reading The Legend of the Monk and the Merchant by Terry Felber because it has a foreword written by Dave Ramsey.  I’m not a huge Dave Ramsey fan, but am familiar with his approach to debt-free living.

Dave Ramsey is so passionate about The Legend of the Monk and the Merchant, that it is required reading for every single person who works for his company.  That’s a pretty big endorsement.

This book is written in two parts.  The first half is a mildly interesting story about a business owner from Venice.  The story is supposed to teach financial truths through fiction.

The second half of the book is a study guide  that mashes up scripture, Dave Ramsey, and the guy from Rich Dad/Poor Dad.  There was a lot of common sense advice, including one of my favorite John Wesley quotes of all times: “Earn all you can, save all you can, give all you can.”

The best thing about this book is its brevity.

P.S. I got a free copy of this book from Booksneeze in exchange for my honest opinions and review.
