THE RICHEST MAN IN BABYLON & THE MAGIC STORY

by | Read by Napoleon Hill Foundation Motivational Audio Theater

Personal Growth • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 1991

This brief and easily digestible cassette offers clumsy self-help and inspirational fare. Produced in the format of an earnest radio drama, the title story features ersatz Babylonian synthesizer music throughout a plot reminiscent of a Sunday school lesson on prudence, thrift, and hard work. Side Two, THE MAGIC STORY, suffers from a poor adaptation. How much work would it have been to rewrite the script so that characters paged in restaurants and clubs would be updated with cell phones? With its O. Henry type plot, THE MAGIC STORY does provide some vivid word pictures. But overall, this dated material is mediocre. D.J.B.
