There was one particular scene in which I knew that this book had the power to change my life: the scene in which the "Rich Dad" is sitting in the park with his two young proteges and explaining the financial trap that most people fall into. It's not a scene I can do justice to in a brief review, so I'll settle on saying that this passage made me realize that the way I've been thinking about money for my entire life has been severely misguided. I learned something deep and true about myself, and something that I see reflected in nearly everybody I know. I learned how to avoid the single biggest mistake that most people will ever make in their financial lives before I damned myself to making it, and that will make all the difference in the world.
There are dozens of incredible out there on how to invest in the stock market or in real estate. "Rich Dad" is not one of them. It is a philosophy, not a guide. It answers "why," not "how." The overarching theme of the book is simple to summarize: financial freedom starts with a state of mind, a willingness to learn, and the bravery to follow through.
This is arguably one of the single most important books you will ever read. At a time in my life when my financial future felt more uncertain than ever, I have found purpose and direction.
And yes, it is worth a listen. Lots of good eye opening things that really help you think and increase your financial IQ.

If any book should be required reading for high school students, it is this one. Filled with practical examples and tested strategies, this is truly a life-changing read. Highly recommended.
As a 4th year university student who is currently struggling to find an internship, I've often admired friends and family who worked so hard at thieir jobs and through school in order get achieve the life they wanted; only to work even harder and return for more degrees and diplomas to gain an additional pay raise to pay for life's "upgrades": new home, new car, new gadgets and hobbies. I'm glad that I was able to learn from Kyosaki, this alternative method, as it was insightful and will definitely be pondering my mind for weeks to come.
I have never been so pleased to know how completely ignorant I was to the existence of, and the need for financial intelligence. this is a top recommendation to anyone tired of working a 9-5. it is a definite must read.
