P.T. Barnum was an astute businessman and one of his principles for success was to treat each customer with respect and give him his money's worth. In this "mini-book", he gives practical rules that allowed him to stay out of debt and to acquire wealth.
The "rules" are illustrated by homespun stories. While some of these of this may seem like common sense, it is the kind of common sense that Wall Street, the government and many ordinary people seem to have forgetten about in recent years. This is a small book but one that could have large consequences for your financial future.
A beloved scam artist if ever there was one, P. T. Barnum regales listeners with his savvy secrets. More than mere hucksterism, however, The Art of Money Getting is perhaps the most enduring self-help guide in the genre’s history, offering sage business advice that remains applicable over a century after its publication. Barnum dispenses practical tips for staying out of debt, choosing one’s career path, and avoiding unnecessary expenditures. Without resorting to carnival barking, performer Jim Roberts captures Barnum’s showmanly quirks, as he entertains listeners with old-world anecdotes and humorous cautionary tales. For all the theatrics and spectacle associated with Barnum, The Art of Money Getting remains a sound, sensible dictum for modern-day working people.
