Loved this book, I usually listen to audio books too go to sleep. Not this one! If I listen to this I end up staying up way too late. The concepts are simple and easy to under attend and he's always got a real world example to go with it. I'll bet listening to this again and I'll be getting more of his books next month!
I enjoy passionate narrators. Great content is also a good thing.
There are only a few book that I have read that move you to think in ways that you haven't before. This is one of those books. I started thinking of ways to be able to use this book with in the first hour of the book and continued all through out. I was only going to listen to this book for a couple of minutes to see what it was about. Instead I finished this book in a day. Given that this book is only 6 hours isn't saying too much but I kept me interested and always wanting more.
The narrator did a great job. He wasn't an animated narrator which this book doesn't require. I look forward to listening to more book from the narrator.
One of the more important things I think this book did for me was gave me the immediate desire to learn more and read more for my personal financial wellbeing.
What an amazing book! It has certainly changed the way I look at money and financial well-being. A special thank-you to Robert Kiyosaki for the material presented, if he ever sees this review. The first thing I'm going to do, as he suggests, is invest in my financial education. I'm already looking into other books and looking up seminars in my area. I'm also considering buying the Cashflow game. Thank you.
As for the read, I could not stand Tim Wheeler's constant breath and mouth noises. Since most of my listen was through headphones (driving and walking the dogs), they were unbearable! It got to the point where I had to stop the recording a couple of times and go back because I'd gotten distracted. It was gross, and really took away from the experience. The read itself was also sub-par, in my opinion. I felt the book was being read to me, as opposed to it being NARRATED to me, like it's supposed to feel.
In spite of all that, this book is still an amazing piece of literature to have under your belt. I recommend it to anyone looking to get out of the rat race and becoming financially independent.
The way it changes your perspective on money and how it really works.
I don't have a personal favourite, but I would definitely change the narrator. I think I'd change the EDITOR too, since the breaths and mouth noises (apart from reflecting poor mic technique) are really his/her job to remove.
Before going out and investing in something, INVEST in your FINANCIAL EDUCATION.

This book changed the way I thought about money. It's as simple as that. If you don't know this story, know it.

it made me think a lot. it began to shift my paradigm
Reading this book, has been like learning a foreign language that I "always wanted to know, but never took the time to learn." For a New Entrepreneur such as myself, the information in this book, I feel, has saved me "A LOT" of money from future business decisions that "I KNOW" I will have to make, but am now "better equipped" to do so.
What I like most about the book, is how the information is delivered in story fashion, and not like some textbook, telling you what you should, or should not do - VERY EASY TO FOLLOW.... A MUST HAVE "FOR ALL" ENTREPRENEURS.
I would definitely recommend this book to all of my friends and family as this has really opened my eyes and helped me understand more not only about how to manage money but the way I see life.

I thought he was very easy to listen to, and very clear and had a great pace :).
Many parts of the book had moved me, especially the parts which he gave real life examples on what he did and how he did. Making it much easier to relate to.

The start of the book was funny on the kids "Making Money"
