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."

Computer Scientist, Reader, also likes well read audiobooks. Prefer mostly non-fiction, but also the occasional fictional series.
I would listen again to better focus on the primary themes and message.
I liked the personal stories of Robert Kiyosaki's youth and how they applied to how he dealt with his adult life.
This book can't really be handled in one sitting. I listened while travelling in my truck and found it entertaining enough to keep my interest, but not too intense for the road.
Highly recommended! I don't think a lot of debt is good due to the amount of risk, but I do like the attitude of not saying no, just saying how can I make this happen!
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.
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.
The rich ideas in the story
Real estates sales
I have learned some valuable ideas from this book.
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!!
Easy to understand and very applicable to life. you really learn the basics to becoming wealthy. I'm excited to keep moving forward and use this information. very helpful! thank you Robert for sharing this with the rest of the world who don't have this type of education!
A very different way to look at your working career and possible changes to your current views to guide you to the future you want.
"just buy it"
the amount of insight and inspiration you can get from this book for the price it costs is immense. it will get you thinking instantly.
Well presented but not quite Inspiring or thought provoking.
Quite common sense. It's more of a personal development book than a financial investment guide .
It's a good listen. Expected an instructive guide.
Will listen again.
"Good book - low on values"
Some hard hitting basics which put things in perspective. I found that tax evasion legally was discussed at length - which may not be right thinking.
"Finally found it!"
Until listening to this book I hadn't come across any that have motivated me in the way that this one did.
"Financial education is a must for everyone."
Excellent book. Financial education starts here. I loved the stories in this book which highlighted why financial education is so important especially in this cash strapped environment. We need to question why the government do not make FE mandatory in the school syllabus.
The purchase of this audiobook was money well spent. It opens your mind to new thinking.
"Nice book, but limited to realestate and stocks.."
I like this book as it gives great sense of motivation to earn money and feel that is all possible and relatively easy. On the other side, it is hardly applicable to anything other than properties and stocks and that is why I gave it only 3 stars..
"Enriching - very good read"
Yes - the story being told is very easy to listen to and you can visualise all contents as the journey unfolds.
Think and Grow Rich. The concepts of structuring your energies into achieving your goals are similar.
His tone variation is clever and at times 'matter of fact' to enhance the message being given at specific times during the book.
Some chuckles as you pictured the young boys getting angry at not being paid but also heart warming as the journey evolves and it's clear where his passions lie and what makes him want to continue to achieve success.
I recommend this book. It gives an insight as to how to stay positive but also that you will always come across hurdles to get over. It's how you do this which can determine how successful you are.
"One of the Greatest Business reads of all time"
This is one of the best Audiobooks I've listened to. I have previously read the hardcopy version and wanted to remind myself of some of the excellent content.
Easy to relate to story with massive learning.
I like to listen to chunks of this while out running. I will listen to it again soon.
If you have kids get the Rich Dad Poor Dad for Teens story and give them a head start in life
