Rich Dad Poor Dad will….
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.
"The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money. The result is that people learn to work for money… but never learn to have money work for them."

more research and less boasting; more solid information not just anecdotes
basic points are good but never elaborated upon
Robert - Yes
Tim - No
The narrator was constantly swallowing and making disgusting noises when he wasn't talking. The noises are loud and extremely unpleasant, especially when listening on earphones.
The content was good.
I've not read the print edition.
Other investing/business type books, nothing specifically as it has it's own twist on things.
Focus on my balance sheet and less on my income statement.
This book can be summed up by saying, focus on your balance sheet and overcome obstacles when they're presented.
Kiyosaki listened to both dads, thought about the advice, and made his decision. I thought going into the book that it would be a presentation of the two different perspectives. Instead it was the bashing of one and exalting of the other. Not that I disagree with rich dad or agree with poor dad, but I would have appreciated the book more if it would have presented the ideas in a more non-biased format, and shown the results of the two types of advice.
Good points are made, I just wish they'd have been presented differently.
The book is very good!. The reader, Tim Wheeler, has not received proper breathing instruction to narrate a book. Some people don't breath while they speak. This is not a healthy habit. It is distracting to listen to a book where the reader holds his breath and gasps between pauses. It actully interrupts my breathing while listening to him.!!!
Yes, short read, some interesting thoughts
Yes, a few tweeks
Probably one of those iconic books, that everyone should read, so that they can talk about it with all the other people who have read it
I am not saying Mr. Kiyosaki does not have a point, but stories he tells are hard to believe.
Numbers and prices look too round and too easily divisible by two when he compares his investments to his friends investments.
In general this audio book encouraged me to find more on the money topic.
20 something loving personal development and financial learning.
of course, it was easy to follow and very motivational.
the rich dad, he was funny
yes, it made me dedicate myself to learning about investing.
read it, should change your thinking.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for motivation to ignore any excuses and doubts and take control of their own financial situation.
The use of the dichotomy of the"rich Dad" and the "poor Dad" to explain the differences in thinking and financial attitudes works perfectly.
This is much better than any other book about finance I have come across in the past simply because it is much less boring and actually quite entertaining. It was very refreshing to not be forced to wade through chapters upon chapters of mind numbing drudgery, as is the case with most books about financial matters.
After finishing Rich Dad Poor Dad I experienced a renewed enthusiasm to work towards financial freedom. It presents the information in a manner which is easy for the layman to understand and digest, and is very effective in leaving the reader feeling energized and enthusiastic.
Id reccomend this audiobook to anyone. Understanding that our day can be long and sometimes what we have left of it feels difficult to actually read the book, listenining to it is as close as it gets. I really enjoy the ideas presented and value the contrast of thoughts brought by the author.
Poor dad. Regretfully i have heard all these advices from my own family. Whats worst is that all of them are stuck (same as poor dad) in the rat race.
Is not as much as i find it my favorite but probably the reflection of myself what makes the poor dad a favorite character.
The performance is quite unique. Some people dont like it others dont care. To me as long as the performer keeps it interesting and the voice doesnt put me to sleep im fine with it.
Id give the performer a 7 or 8.
Not really, since all the book moves you, motivates you if you will.
Ive read and heard other books from this author, and if you are not happy with your financial life this author is a most for your library of references.
"A audio book that changes your life!"
What a book this book gives you a whole new perspective and truly makes you feel smarter. It's certainty a must read or must listen in audible terms. If you need help finantially or desire to become rich this is a download for you. I would like to say thanks to audible for making it so easy and cost effective to get great books into busy life's. For the first time I look forward driving to work because I can listen to great books and if there's a traffic jam that's even better more chapters!
"Listen Again and Again to Refresh"
Even though I have read the paperback a long time ago, I felt the need to read this again, but now that my circumstances have changed [married and a one year old taking up the time]. this audioversion was more than welcome. I listen when driving to work[only time i have for myself]. It feels a bit different from the one I have read but it is not. The feeling that the reader puts into the lines is great and would listen again and again if I need the financial kick on my backside when I slack off with my investment goals.
This book is the bible on which all other get rich slow but sure books are based. A must for people with no background of finance or money[like me, I am a Dr in Dept of Emergency Medicine]. Just go for it and you will feel that you have not read this book in the past , even though you have indeed.
if you want to be cheated you've found a cheater. Thanks to Audible books I got a full refund.
"The narrator doesn't doesn't do it justice!"
This one of the best Audio books I have ever owned, this is what got me started in the self help and personal development journey.
The narrator is not very enthusiastic and ruins this book for me.
