    "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.

    "Good lessons to the young and those who can risk"
    Would you listen to Rich Dad Poor Dad again? Why?

    I would listen again to better focus on the primary themes and message.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the personal stories of Robert Kiyosaki's youth and how they applied to how he dealt with his adult life.


    Have you listened to any of Tim Wheeler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Great book - slow reader"
    What did you love best about Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    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.


    What about Tim Wheeler’s performance did you like?

    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.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    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.

    Story
    "A set of primitive ideas repeated too many times"

    If you considered the book as an educational nonscientific material (which you kinda do after all the hype in the media) then you'd expect it to be structured around a bunch of non-obvious theses and the arguments supporting those.

    The book is nothing like this.

    The number of theses boils down to just three: "invest into assets and not liabilities", "make money work for you" and "have a self-discipline not to waste your savings on liabilities". And all of the above are obvious to any sane individual.

    The author tries his best to support the theses mentioned above by sharing several life stories. Which is not really educational because saying why you should "make money work for you" in a book about getting wealthy is like explaining why you should go to gym in a book about bodybuilding. It is a way too high level topic that does not really need argumentation.

    The book is not well structured either. It seems like Robert had a list of stories he wanted to share and did so in a really chaotic way. He cross-jumps between the stories like a Hollywood TV series. Yes it makes the book fell like a rollercoaster but does not anyhow deepen the knowledge.

    Overall: a good book to read in your bathroom instead of toilet aerosol's content. Though the latest is much more educational.

    "Well, it's given ME food for thought ..."
    Where does Rich Dad Poor Dad rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Hard to say as I'm a newbie, but certainly an inspiring listen.
    I highly recommend this book if you're looking to change your attitudes to money, work and lifestyle (and hopefully improve your wealth one day).


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/A.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    N/A. Though the case studies by the author were fun and interesting.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Get rich via real estate, and make money work for YOU, not YOU work for money.


    Any additional comments?

    The only downside is that it refers to American tax and real estate matters, though I'm reasonably smart enough to Anglicise the terminology.
    I highly recommend this book if you're looking to change your attitudes to money, work and lifestyle (and hopefully improve your wealth one day).

    "Problems with his epistemological approach,"

    Great book, however author delves into fields which aren't obviously in his remit, and makes blanket statements saying humans are like this or so and so, and tries to explain problems such as greed with an arrogance. For me, what he espouses isn't the be all and end all.

    "Money Money Money!!"

    I have read and listened to this previously. Still it is a really good book. It teaches the principles of how to respect money more than being a get rich quick book.

    He does not have two dad's though. One dad is his friend's father, which is something that you might miss.

    This is an enjoyable audiobook and one that I have gone back to over the years, because I like the some of the principles that he teaches. I cannot say however, that I agree with them all.
