    Rich Dad’s Cashflow Quadrant reveals how some people work less, earn more, pay less in taxes, and learn to become financially free.

    What disappointed you about Rich Dad's Cashflow Quadrant?

    The entire book can be summed up with: study investing and businesses because that's what the Rich do.

    He literally repeats that with 100 stories throughout the book. Over, and over, and over again. He gives NO advice, just says that you should learn about investing and business financial statements.

    Such a rip off.

  • Rich Dad's Guide to Investing: What the Rich Invest In That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!

    "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)

    What was most disappointing about Robert T. Kiyosaki’s story?

    This book completely fiction and made up. He never had 2 dads and "Rich Dad" never existed. It's been proven and he's admitted it. Yet, with his horrible writing and disturbingly repetitive stories and statements, it's amazing how he can repeat the same garbage for this long, book after book after book.

    If you read the first book, you will NOT get anything new out of here. So disappointed, it's a complete rip off and sales pitch to attend his seminars and buy his ridiculously expensive mentoring packages (that are just more sales pitches).


    Any additional comments?

    DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS BOOK! Fair warning, it's the same stuff in his first book, just overly embellished, exaggerated, and useless. He literally continues to repeat, "your house is not an asset" "Rich Dad's philosophy is your house is not an asset" "Why call your house an asset if it costs you money" "your house is not an asset" "Rich Dad's philosophy is your house is not an asset"..... see where I'm going?

    DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!

  • The Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cure: Why Pure Capitalism Is the World Economy’s Only Hope

    Did Wall Street cause the mess we are in? Should Washington place stronger regulations on the financial industry? Can we lower unemployment rates by controlling the free market? Answer: no. Not only is free-market capitalism good for the economy, it is our only hope for recovery. As the nation’s longest-serving CEO of one of the top 25 financial institutions, John Allison has had a unique inside view of the events leading up to the financial crisis.

    For years I had known the government and irresponsible people were the cause of the financial meltdown; I just never knew the details. Such a great explanation and history of events by someone who has been there and come out the other side. Cynics and conspiracists will most likely say this book is propaganda, but they are just socialist like Obama. If you want businesses to compete and grow, leave them alone and let them fend for themselves. The market (the people of the United States) will determine who succeeds and who fails.

    Where does How to Win Friends & Influence People rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    So glad I listened to this. I will most likely listen to it multiple times.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Not everyone thinks like you, so get them to think you think like them.


    Any additional comments?

    I know there are endless scenarios to how to talk and deal with people, but they are justified. Anyone who complains about this book's view on how to deal with people, obviously has a problem dealing with people and did not actually understand the concept. They can repeat the definitions, but fail to intellectually comprehend the lessons. Ironically I told a previous boss she was crazy for many of these ideas, but the examples helped send some of them home for me. Bottom-line, this will be a requirement for my employees to read in the future. Anyone who manages or leads needs to read, and more importantly, understand the teachings of Dale Carnegie.

  • Investing 101, 2nd, Updated and Expanded Edition

    Investing 101: Updated and Expanded removes both roadblocks, putting people on a path that they can understand and stick with. Kristof is renowned for taking the mystery and anxiety out of investing by keeping choices manageable. Kristof walks readers through the entire investment cycle and the way they think of their financial lives, rather than presenting stand-alone concepts like stocks and real estate. This expanded edition has new information about 529 college savings plans, annuities, Roth IRAs, reverse mortgages, and why declining markets can be good for you.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Good information but obvious bias towards women. Who, according to the author are much more sound investors. Yeah... what does that have to do with anything? The narrator is also pretty painful to listen to, I often toned out or fell asleep and didn't try to rewind. Not worth the credit.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Vanessa Hart?

    Nope!
