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.
I have not read the print version of Rich Dad Poor Dad, but did appreciate the basic premise of the book: the rich handle money differently from the poor and middle class.
I might try another Kiyosaki book, but am afraid it will not give much more information than was in this book.
The narrator was good, but a little forced. In trying to read clearly, a little bit of natural conversational tone seemed to be lacking.
Many good insights to be gained. Pay yourself first; have your money work for you; and build your asset column are three that stand out.
Mom of 3 and a book lover.
I already read the books, and now enjoy the audiobook while I'm driving. And my kids love it. The audiobook gave parents something worth to discuss with children.
I am a middle aged male who thinks radio is bubble gum for the brain, so I listen to books in the car. At least one a month.
The definition of wealth is "how long you can live without working". That fancy house will be working against you if you don't have a job - that is not the measure of success. The concept of assets vs. liabilities is clear and make you want to get income generation vehicles; not more things. It is a must read for everyone who thinks they are getting ahead. Maybe you are not. This book is well produced and you will enjoy listening to it. It has a nice story baseline.
Assets are all that matter.

The Millionaire Next Door
A foundation to building wealth.
It is very basic and this book will not solve everything, but it will lay a foundation to begin building wealth upon
Recommended by so many, I finally decided to give it a try. The life lessons in them were priceless! I must admit, I thought about joining in the Real Estate movement. But combining what I learned through here and through Think and Grow Rich, I finally found the courage to build my own empire Money Coach Alex [dot] com. Since then, I've been on the road to financial freedom and I have these two books to thank.
Always remember: take risks, and stop thinking like an employee!!
I enjoyed how he's started at such a young age, and how he explains clearly how to think like an entrepreneur.
This guy's children and grand children must be happy because he narrates the story amazingly! Fantastic!
- Take risks.
- Stop thinking like an employee.
- Invest in what you believe in.
- Seize the opportunity that's given to you.
- And an emphasis in the first two insights listed above.
I recommend Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich as a complement to this wonderful book. As stated previously, these two books helped shape my current empire with Money Coach Alex [dot] com, and I plan on building many more successful ones, once I finish with my Entrepreneurship certificate. Good luck!
The only way that I believe that this narrator helped this book is by making the sound recording so painful to listen to that you must purchase the book instead.
You can hear every single breath he takes, you can hear the sound of the spit in his mouth swish about while he moves his tongue, you can hear his gulps. Listening to this book is torturous.
Great good to understand how rich people use money to make money vs. the common poor or middle class work to pay their bills.
