Interesting philosophy on wealth. He makes the assumption that your money goals should be to have large enough income generating assests that can earn you enough money to live confortably. He choose real estate as a platform to meet that endstate.
Before reading the book, I just knew I was supposed to make my money work for me so I invested in stocks and mutual funds. After reading the book, it changed my think to start researching oppurtunities for me to diversify into.
the book provides a very interesting point of view to look at money and helps the listener assess how they think about money and how that may impact their financial future. that being said some of the stories in the book raised a red flag in terms of morals and ethics, made me wonder, should this really be the way we go about life?
I certainly will go about my finances differently as a result of listening to the book
Tim is a great reader, I think I accepted a lot more of the stories in the book because of the tone Tim presented it. I listened to Robert's voice on other occasions and saw his youtube vides and I wasn't impressed. I was actually thankful he wasn't the one reading the book (and now I know he wouldn't give the kind of person he is after reading the book)
mind my own business
not a waste of time, do listen to it.
I rated this book very good not excellent because at certain points I would feel bored and able to stop the audio and then re-listen again. If the audio is super I would not want to pause except if I have too.
The overall book is very good.
The audio is great as I can listen in the car, during walking or in my bed with the head phone on. I have learned a lot by listening to this audio. Really enjoy it!
His voice is clear and pleasant to listen.
I would highly recommend this audio to any one who wants to be financial freedom.
The book was infomative and inspiring. I liked the way that everything was presented and I will definitely download more of Mr. Kiyosaki's books.
as i creep closer to 'retirement' age, i see illustrated for me the flaws in 48 years of thinking, acting and expectations. i am going through the book again. and again.
yes. Rich Dad Poor Dad is a great read to help somone understand wealth. it doesn't tell the reader exactly what to do to create wealth, but rather puts them in the right mindset to create it. I would recommend it to a friend as their foundation on money.

Poor book; Good performance.
The attitude in this book was too much of the greed of acquiring money. Would have been much better if the attitude would have been less "Get Rich", and more what the book advertises, "What wealthy parents teach their kids about money".
I shared this audiobook with my college aged son on a trip home from the beach last week. He doesn't always listen to the "old man" but hearing Robert's stories and the importance of an investment mindset registered with my son...hallelujah! I wished this was required reading in the classrooms!
