Rich Dad Poor Dad is a great book that kicks off a series about thinking differently about money. I think Robert nails the mindset that one has to have to be successful with money.
Robert's stories about the view of his 'rich dad' vs. that of his 'poor dad' really create a dynamic that allows us to compare thinking of the rich to those who want to be more 'secure' but ultimately may not be able to obtain or sustain wealth.
While I wish that the reading of the book was a little faster, Tim does a good job of clear pronunciation, so all can understand, even if English is your second language.
At the end of the day, it's great for everyone to really understand the concept of passive income and how this helps you over your long term view of investing and maintaining wealth.
The conversational tone of the book makes the approach very accessible and easy to absorb for the reader.
I think more actionable advice would he helpful, but perhaps that is addressed in another book by the author. The overall mindset of how to learn and approach wealth creation from any age is well represented.
Robert - Yes
Tim - No
The narrator was constantly swallowing and making disgusting noises when he wasn't talking. The noises are loud and extremely unpleasant, especially when listening on earphones.
The content was good.
more research and less boasting; more solid information not just anecdotes
basic points are good but never elaborated upon

The start of the book was funny on the kids "Making Money"

That book smart is not necessarily the best way to become rich.
I was surprised that the poor dad was the educated (book smart) dad; and the rich dad was the street smart dad.
The real deal in becoming rich
I'm 26 and i'm weird. since i was 15 i fell in love with reading but only financial books and things that can teach me something.
Only one thing could make this book a better buy. If Robert Kiyosaki, narrated the book himself. I find, that you get more out of a book like this when the author is also the one reading the book to you. You get more conviction, more enthusiasm about the topic.
all in all great lessons to be learned.
any of the Rich Dad Series.

Tim Wheeler does a great job in the rich dad series. definitely the next best thing to the author, narrating themselves
Perhaps. As a reference.
I already recommended this book because it is knowledge.
I have nothing to request from narrator.

Like so many books of this ilk the concepts covered are generic with very few examples.
Bottom line? Talks the talk, but hasn't got the legs to walk.
