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

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    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.

    It is a story, not an instruction. And it is jam-packed with wisdom and life lessons that you can easily apply in every day life.

    It is pretty short. Just 2 hours. But you will want to listen to it 4-5 times. It is that good.

    Every day for the last 20 years, a carpenter has visited the Well of Wealth and spent a dollar, because it is generally accepted by the townsfolk that if they give generously to the Well, it will in turn give generously to them. One day, the carpenter entrusts his nine-year-old son, Richard, with a crumpled but treasured dollar and sends him in his place. Richard's subsequent encounters with a number of characters are intended to make the listener think more deeply about the dynamics of wealth creation.

    Story

    although I would not rank it as high as I did Novella's lectures on The Deceptive Mind, mainly because the latter comes from a point of view of science and psychology, and this lecturer defines strategic thinking in terms of politics, business, the military and sports, and so it is not as scientifically in depth as many of the Great Courses, although this is still a fine learning experience,
