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
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.
Rich Dad is a coaching for life. Yes, I would absolutely listen again.
Recognizing the fear and ignorance of job vs independence
It made me think
You will enjoy listening and learning to this book over and over!! You will understand more about the rich and how they become and stay rich! It's a great book!!
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.
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.!!!
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.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is a great book that kicks off a series about thinking differently about money. I think Robert nails the mindset that one has to have to be successful with money.
Robert's stories about the view of his 'rich dad' vs. that of his 'poor dad' really create a dynamic that allows us to compare thinking of the rich to those who want to be more 'secure' but ultimately may not be able to obtain or sustain wealth.
While I wish that the reading of the book was a little faster, Tim does a good job of clear pronunciation, so all can understand, even if English is your second language.
At the end of the day, it's great for everyone to really understand the concept of passive income and how this helps you over your long term view of investing and maintaining wealth.
The conversational tone of the book makes the approach very accessible and easy to absorb for the reader.
I think more actionable advice would he helpful, but perhaps that is addressed in another book by the author. The overall mindset of how to learn and approach wealth creation from any age is well represented.
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.
"Fantastic book!! Very useful"
The narration of the book is really fantastic, Tim Wheeler has great voice.I also like different topics that are covered around this book. It gives an idea of how we can train our children about finance and also there is a lot adults can learn and think about the financial information provided in this book. Author has not only gave us thought process but also gave an idea of how to start with it. It changed my perspective of thinking towards money, rich people and managing our finances.
An inspirational book. Recommend this book highly if you want to learn how to take control of your finances and make money work for you!!!
I haven't finished listening to this book yet and one of the reasons it's taking me a long time to get through is that it's read in a very monotonous tone, which makes the material feel more boring than it needs to.
But I also have problems with the content of the book, since the author spends so much time telling us to accumulate assets instead of liabilities, but doesn't really get down to the nuts and bolts of how to do that, which is frustrating.
"Practical Principles with a Personable Delivery"
This book is for you if you are starting your journey in financial education.
The audio is of a high standard but most importantly the narrative offers a personable friendly approach.
Although the subject matter maybe a bit dry the author and narrator have created a piece of work that will keep you engaged, entertained and enthused during your listen and weeks after.
A great listen.
At the very least add it to your wish list.
"Really eye opening! Acquire assests."
I wouldn't say it was better than the print cope, just more accessible. You can't drivev and read, but you can listen to an audio book whilst driving. Great for busy people. I use the book lke notebook/school book.
Cut out some of the 'rich dad said this' & 'I said that'. It went on for far too long. I don't believe a 10 year old can remember conversations word for word from 10 or 20 years ago, it vecane annoying.
I'm alot like poor dad - lots of degrees certificates on the wall , high salary, large house and was about to treat myself to a Porsche for my 40th - not now! Time to buy assests not acquire more liabilities. My wife thinks I'm having mid-life crisis. No - my eyes are just open and the clock is ticking.
"Really gets your head into the right space"
The series of Rich Dad Poor Dad books are excellent. They really get your head into a different and more useful financial space. I wish I had read these books when I was at school rather than going through half a life-time of making do and limiting thinking.
They should be required study material at school and universities. I have given my daughter a copy so she can listen to it now before she makes the same mistakes I made.
Get it as soon as you can and listen or read it and then take action!
Great points of view on how to see life and work. As the book says, this should be taught in schools. I have met so many we'll educated hard working people who only manage to get by because of their outlook, which is that of the poor dad. This book is well worth a read.. or should that be.. listen. It is well narrated and pleasant to listen to.
Absolutely love the book, very helpful and full of great advices. i recommend this book to all those enthusiasts who want to start their business.
"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.
