Best book for beginners for understanding and importance of financial literacy. Knowledge of investing like different types of investments like real estate, stock etc.
Great book. Narrator not nearly as annoying as I feared from the sample. It seriously nearly kept me from buying this book. It's much less pronounced throughout than the sample and though his heavy breathing/swallowing is annoying, it's mostly unnoticeable aside from a few sections.
Tim Wheeler had a great voice but being able to hear him breath and swallow was annoying. Other then that it was an amazing book that I will listen to many times.
Mr. Kiysoaki makes clear what the book is about from the beginning. This is sort of a motivational book designed to encourage you to get off your butt and start doing for yourself and stop expecting others to do it for you. There is no "secrete sauce" to getting rich. For me, the book was encouraging and inspiring. I hope I can muster the drive and self discipline to make this happen!
The book is well written and easy to understand. Narration is excellent.
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.
