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.
Rich Dad Poor Dad has a very practical approach to getting rich. it demystified the concept of wealth. it made it obvious that if you play by the rules, you are surely on your way to getting rich.
the rich dad
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.
The 4 Areas that would help you become more financially literate:
3. The Market
4. The Law
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.
Handle Smart Money
Think and Grow Rich
The start of the book was funny on the kids "Making Money"
yes one sitting
I am a project manager with a Telecoms company in Jamaica. CompTIA certified, 10 years project management experience.
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.
