Nope. The basic content of the book could be and should have been summarized in about 25 pages. The autobiographic parts of the book are unbelievable. No nine-year-old kid from the 50's would stand up to an adult as portrayed. No 50-something-year-old man could recall with absolute certainty and clarity the detailed conversations four decades old reported in the book. Oh, and spoiler alert: the author has daddy issues.
And sooooooo repetitive. Geez, he makes the same points (good points mind you) over and again to the point of nausea.
The reader did the best he could with the material
I liked the book, and it gave me some really interesting things to think about. I do not agree with the author on everything. It was very cool to hear things from a different point of view. The book helped me to see a different point of view on some issues and that is ALWAYS valuable.
Anti-intellectuals. Tea Party supporters. Anyone who hates government employees. High school drop-outs who hope to exceed the lifestyle of their (former) childhood friends who pursued college degrees.
It is unfortunate that Tim Wheeler is associated with this inane book.
The author Robert Kiyosaki.
Wow! It is so hard to write a review for a book this bad. Anti-intellectual, joke, pretentious, self-absorbed, farce, ... what else is there to say? If you are a Tea Party lover who lives in a trailer park; this is your book. If you have high school degree, you will recognize this piece of trash for the lame manifesto that it is.
Here is the essence of the book: "Real Estate rental income = good.... Taxes = bad. Public employees = very bad. Anyone who earns a salary and has a benefit package is a socialist (i.e. police department, fire department, public school and college teachers) are the bane of all good hearted capitalists.
I don't normally write reviews. I don't have the time. I read books, listen to lectures, absorb ideas and move on. But this idiot makes Sarah Palin look like an intellectual. How many times can you repeat the same drivel about the middle class "not knowing the difference between an asset and a liability"? There are at least 50 pages of the same repetitive message.
I have met a ton of self-made millionaires, and very few of them have the pompous and ridiculous attitude that this moron does. The moral of the story is: "The good man/woman avoids taxes and shelters (hides) his/her income at all costs. Anyone who works for the government is the root of all evil. Free the capitalists let them loose and they will heal the world. Amen!"
Yes, great to hear a well known book
I'm not so sure.
The narration is very poor. An almost condescending tone throughout.
The book is very interresting. I disagree with some arguments but we got to say the author knows what he's talking about.
Something I would point out for the first time reader is to pay attention to the author's biography and not just take everything he says.
For sure it is worth reading!
More facts and less general stories.
Idea that you manage your money or money manages you. Stories sounded like get rich quick stick.
Never read print edition
There's many. They usually come in a form of a story or a historical anecdote.
The book is awesome, but the narrator breathes and swallows near the microphone wich is really annoying.
interesting, engaging, keeps you thinking. one of the better ones but probably a bit dated at this point but still an interesting read.
I read this book when it came out. I thought he was a quack. As I listen too it with life experience under my belt, I realize that there is a lot of truth in this book. A lot of the information is applicable even today.
