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.
The Richest Man in Babylon
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.
It's all a game, so suffer (or sacrifice) now to have your life wants.

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.
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.

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.

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.
Fear is the mind Killer, so Face Your Fear
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!
