Priceless words of wisdom about money and finance.
Great read. Must be read. the story is very nice. and the content is very rich.
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.
The rich ideas in the story
Real estates sales
I have learned some valuable ideas from this book.
Rich Dad is a coaching for life. Yes, I would absolutely listen again.
Recognizing the fear and ignorance of job vs independence
It made me think
You will enjoy listening and learning to this book over and over!! You will understand more about the rich and how they become and stay rich! It's a great book!!
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!
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.
Improve Your Mind
Any book that inspires people to become better than who they are. The reason being is that Rich Dad Poor Dad is a story that is allowing us to think for ourselves about the many perspectives on how we should view a particular thing in our lives. In this book its about our fear of money, in other books it could be about over coming other fears like being different, bullies, etc... This book is not to be used as a reference but along the lines of inspiration that we can do better, if we become better mentally. The biggest difference between this book and others is that there are other tangible things the author tries to sell you on like his board games and other books. Remember he is a best "SELLING" author as he claims, he's going to sell you on his other books, products and services within this book. I can't say this enough but this is a book that gives us a different perspective on how we can improve our minds, but uses Money as a selling point because we all can relate.
No, his voice was the same with different characters and you could hear him make sounds with his mouth that made me want to give him a glass of water.
I'm improving my mind and how I look at things. I do like how he defines assets and liabilities. Also I understand that you have to be very careful of what choices you make. Like what the author is portraying and what he is selling.
I believe that the book is a stepping stone to improving one self. He captures you by talking about money troubles and using fictional dad (his real father/poor dad) and non-fictional dad (made up/rich dad) and how he was "brought up" and how it's changed him. I do agree that self improvement will make you better. I don't agree on spending money on his other books, products and services from a person who is not backed by supporting evidence.
In his book he says that you should invest with a person who doesn't make his wealth in investments, thus you should take real estate advice from a person who only says he's made these so called real estate deals.
So use your mind when you read this book, accept the inspiration of mental self-improvement and question the ulterior motive the author has when he talks about his real estate dealings, seminars, board games, books and events in his life. Seems like he's trying to project stories and opinions as truth and fact which in reality it just make a good story and selling point to convince other people to buy into his other products and services.
I guess folks who are currently working a desk job and needing a push to go out and try to create their own thing.
Seriously. This book was a shame after hearing about this book for years. Let me get this straight, all you need to do to be wealthy is come up with your own million dollar idea? Invest in real estate? Quit your day job because that's for chumps? What in the hell?
