Kiyosaki listened to both dads, thought about the advice, and made his decision. I thought going into the book that it would be a presentation of the two different perspectives. Instead it was the bashing of one and exalting of the other. Not that I disagree with rich dad or agree with poor dad, but I would have appreciated the book more if it would have presented the ideas in a more non-biased format, and shown the results of the two types of advice.
Good points are made, I just wish they'd have been presented differently.
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.

Recognizing the fear and ignorance of job vs independence

Computer Scientist, Reader, also likes well read audiobooks. Prefer mostly non-fiction, but also the occasional fictional series.
I would listen again to better focus on the primary themes and message.
I liked the personal stories of Robert Kiyosaki's youth and how they applied to how he dealt with his adult life.
This book can't really be handled in one sitting. I listened while travelling in my truck and found it entertaining enough to keep my interest, but not too intense for the road.
Highly recommended! I don't think a lot of debt is good due to the amount of risk, but I do like the attitude of not saying no, just saying how can I make this happen!
I enjoy passionate narrators. Great content is also a good thing.
There are only a few book that I have read that move you to think in ways that you haven't before. This is one of those books. I started thinking of ways to be able to use this book with in the first hour of the book and continued all through out. I was only going to listen to this book for a couple of minutes to see what it was about. Instead I finished this book in a day. Given that this book is only 6 hours isn't saying too much but I kept me interested and always wanting more.
The narrator did a great job. He wasn't an animated narrator which this book doesn't require. I look forward to listening to more book from the narrator.
One of the more important things I think this book did for me was gave me the immediate desire to learn more and read more for my personal financial wellbeing.
