    "Great Book - Bad Narrator"
    Would you try another book from Robert T. Kiyosaki and/or Tim Wheeler?

    Robert - Yes
    Tim - No


    How could the performance have been better?

    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.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The content was good.

    "Focus on your Assets....the end"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rich Dad Poor Dad to be better than the print version?

    I've not read the print edition.


    What other book might you compare Rich Dad Poor Dad to and why?

    Other investing/business type books, nothing specifically as it has it's own twist on things.


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

    Anybody else.


    What did you learn from Rich Dad Poor Dad that you would use in your daily life?

    Focus on my balance sheet and less on my income statement.


    Any additional comments?

    This book can be summed up by saying, focus on your balance sheet and overcome obstacles when they're presented.

    "Surprisingly Close-Minded"
    What disappointed you about Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    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.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Good points are made, I just wish they'd have been presented differently.

    "READER NEEDS MORE TRAINING!!!"
    Would you listen to Rich Dad Poor Dad again? Why?

    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.!!!

    "Sounds like a fiction to me"

    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.

    "Very Motivating"

    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.

    "I really enjoy listening over and over again."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What about Tim Wheeler’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really, since all the book moves you, motivates you if you will.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "The narrator doesn't doesn't do it justice!"
    Where does Rich Dad Poor Dad rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator is not very enthusiastic and ruins this book for me.
