    "Investing means different things to different people. In fact, there are different investments for the rich, poor, and middle class. Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing is a long-term guide for anyone who wants to become a rich investor and invest in what the rich invest in. As the title states, it is a "guide" and offers no guarantees... only guidance.” (Robert Kiyosaki)

    Story

    This is a very long book with LOT AND LOTS of fluff. He says a lot without saying anything important, restating the same useless banter about himself over and over again. It's frustrating. Over and over he says the same things, it's as though he needed to repeat himself just to have enough content to fill a book. It could have been less than half its length. It's pathetic and I feel cheated.

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    Story

    This was a really good read. Gladwell is a great speaker and the material in this book is eye opening. It lets you in on what was really involved in the making of the "greats". The take away for me was that it matters a lot more how you apply yourself then you might think and that you shouldn't just assume that people who are at the top of their field (be it sports or business) are "naturally gifted" or anything.

    My only issue with this book is that part of it relies on the "10,000 hours rule" which states that you need 10,000 hours or 10 years of experience in something to be great at it. This has been debunked by a productivity guru/author named Tim Ferriss. He's got world records in Tango after only practice for a number of months, FAR less than 10,000 hours. He goes into it in his books. Aside from that though, Outliers is a great book.
