    Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."

    C. Acevedo says: "I really enjoy listening over and over again."

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    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.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something intelligent.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tim Wheeler?

    It is unfortunate that Tim Wheeler is associated with this inane book.


    What character would you cut from Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    The author Robert Kiyosaki.


    Any additional comments?

    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!"
