Jason's greatest hits:
  • The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated)

    "My favorite book for encouragement!"

    Overall

    This updated version is worth the listen even if you have the first edition because it is filled with real life examples of people who went through with the steps in the first book and were successful.

    I wish there would've been some people who didn't make it and why. I feel like a lot of people wouldn't have been successful due to family responsibility. There isn't much advice for people who are married and have children. Tim is obviously single at the time of writing and able to focus on things without family responsibility.

    This book makes you want to get up and do something...but sometimes reality hits if your spouse isn't going along with your ideas.

    Excellent read and resources...

  • The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness

    "Very Motivational..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Even if you might not adhere to Dave's plan exactly, the idea of slavery to debt and freedom from it are very motivational. I feel like the examples he uses are real life people and he doesn't use terms or language that is reserved for finance professionals. It really is a good, practical plan for getting out of debt via hard work and perseverance. Even though his plan is not the best "mathematically", the point of getting some quick wins by paying off the lowest balance without regard to interest rate is a legitimate point. Honestly, you can hear most of the content of this book in his daily podcasts. I do recommend this book to people.

  • Debt Free For Life: The Finish Rich Plan for Financial Freedom

    "Not what I expected..."

    Overall

    It had some good reasoning about financial debt and good strategies to become debt free, but that was in the very front part of the book. I feel like it was 2 hours of good stuff and 5.5 hours of how to file for bankruptcy. I wish he would have elaborated more on the program and online software in this book and written a separate book about the intricacies of bankruptcy.

  • "Everyone should read/listen to this..."

    5 of 5 helpful votes

    The rich have a totally different set of rules and (fiscal/financial) laws that they live by. And it is not discriminating. Every person can choose to life on the E (employee) and S (self employed) side of live where they are taxed heavily and always struggle to stay on top or on the B (business owner) and I (investor) side of life, where true freedom is possible.

    This book is read in such a way that it's almost as if you can hear Robert Kiyosaki read it himself. Which is great of course. Great combination of great writing (in speaking-style) and performance of narrating it for us.

    Very easy and pleasant to listen to and it changes your persective on society and really makes you think and want to start changing stuff.

    I recommend you play the online version of Cashflow 101, the online game, after listening to this book.
