This book has really open my eyes to a whole new world. Not saying that this book has made me millions of dollars but it have shown me a whole new way to make money. My mind was locked to the only way to make money was school and work. i wish i would of stumbled along this book at a younger age. Im currently 21 but its not to late its never to late. I encourage if you come along this book to read it and understand what is being implied here. This is not a quick get rich book but this is a highly knowledgeable book. This book is also not saying quit your job but really to look into a different way. As for my self I am going to expand my horizon and search for a new way. knowledge is power and power is the key for new door ways. You may come across a small doorway but its not the end. No its a challenge. in hindsight I highly recommend this book to start the beginning of your new journey and for that I thank you for this wonderful opportunity and will be in search for more opportunities that at first was just flying by me because of being blind. If i could contact this author I will personally thank him for this book.
Financial literacy was not something I was taught. This is a GREAT start on the journey to financial freedom and creating the future one dreams for in life.
This is great information put in a way that I understand. I only wish I listened to this 16 years ago when it fist came out. I'm going to make sure my teenage boys listen to this so they can make an educated decision on how they want to be financially educated.
we all have ears to hear but if you truly take the time to listen and let it all sink in the message will unlock something inside that can allow you to break free from the bad habits of traditional thinking and push you to your true destiny! Thank you Mr. Kiyosaki
The book was excellent, I heard lots of good reviews about this book and by far another book that has open a new way of thinking. Much thanks to the author who has established a well rounded book about financial literacy.
"I'll be buying assets from here on!"
I really enjoyed this book. It teaches you the mentality that drives wealthy people and the core principles that made them rich. I am putting these principles into action.
"Motivational but thin on details."
This is a bit of a mix, really, and there are some issues.
It seems America-centric. A lot of the advice offered is not directly relevant to other countries because the laws are different. For example, in the UK it is not necessary to set up a corporation to claim business expenses offset against tax; you can instead set up as a sole trader or partnership.
It also does seem that Kiyosaki is cherry-picking when it comes to anecdotes offered. This may or may not be the case, but it is the feeling I get. He seems to go off on a rant when talking about an investment that increases in value by 16% year-on-year because he's been told by other people that the investment is "far too risky," but he does not explain the investment.
Nevertheless, some of the advice I do feel is sound. To own businesses (rather than taking time to run them yourself) and to learn to make good investment decisions and make them both seem good ideas from the point of view of the end goal of generating money without working for money. That's obviously the ticket to financial security which is what the book is really about. If you have a regular income and you don't have to "work" 40 hours a week to get it, that's the goal.
The problem for me with this book and many similar books is that it describes what has worked for Kiyosaki. Kiyosaki has a unique set of skills as has every other person. In his case it led to riches; in other people's cases that may not really apply.
This book encapsulates capitalism and for the most part whatever your philosophy, the advice is sound...at least from a 'Western' stance. Kiyosaki is clearly very passionate about the subject matter which adds an air of confidence and authority to his book. Some have criticised that the whole,'rich dad' thing is a fabrication...I would suggest that this is an irrelevance. Any successful entrepreneur will tell you that acting 'as if' is often a given. Kiyosaki can get carried away at times and make what I would say are ridiculous suggestions such as education being for mere fools......and this lets an otherwise excellent book down. At times, Kiyosaki apologises for being unfair...and then continues to be just that and there can be a two-faced element to his arguments as a consequence. Narration is always important with audiobooks and Wheeler's approach is impeccable. I'd encourage Kiyosaki to take some time out to embrace some more Eastern practices as money alone whilst important is ultimately a mere fabrication of mankind. Nevertheless a very enjoyable listen...if at times a tad trite.
"Inspiring, entertaining and insightful"
This book totally lived up to the hype. Inspiring stories and advice on all aspects of wealth creation as well as some nice spiritual observations.
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.
"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 enjoyable,outstanding eye opener !!"
I will 110% be listening to this audio book again as I feel that there was too much valuable information to take in all at once, next time I will be taking notes and using them to begin educating my own children. I listened to the whole book within 24hrs as I just wanted to know more and since finishing the book I have bought 3 more of Rich Dads audio books.
Tim Wheeler was a great candidate for Rich Dads audio books as he made the listening experience more pleasurable with his tone of voice and delivery of speech. He also has the ability to make you feel as though he is actually sitting beside you and talking to you personally.
It made me feel a little bit angry at times as I felt like the working class are actually kept in the dark about a lot of the topics spoke about in this audio book. It also aggravated me to think that my children are now also being "Trained" at school to become only suitable for employment. I have since been proactive about changing my children's course of education and also about they're financial way of thinking. A definite must have for any loving, caring parent.
For any one serious about opening there mind and changing the way they see things I would highly recommend. A small price to pay for potentially life changing information!!
Understanding the difference between 'classes' and assets/liabilities for me personally. I thought the whole book was good as an audio book.
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!!!
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.
