  • Explode the myth that you need to earn a high income to become rich
  • Challenge the belief that your house is an asset
  • Show parents why they can’t rely on the school system to teach their kids about money

Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. 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."
—Robert Kiyosaki Rich Dad Poor Dad – The #1 Personal Finance Book of All Time!

Rich Dad Poor Dad is a starting point for anyone looking to gain control of their financial future.” (USA Today)

    "Good read"

    The reader is a great reader, but at parts its a little too clear that he is reading, almost like a robot.

    Pro: The story is great. It will connect dots on a lot of things you might already know about financial intelligence. Gives great examples and actual advice, not just vague metaphors.

    Con: Very repetitive, you hear him say the same phrases a lot so that it drills in your head. Its not terribly annoying though, it seems to have purpose when he does.

    "What I needed"
    If you could sum up Rich Dad Poor Dad in three words, what would they be?

    Opened my eyes


    Any additional comments?

    I dont know what these people are complaining about. This book was exactly what I needed to get out of the poor mindset and give me direction and realign my goals. That in itself is invaluable.
    Its always worth a shot.

    It's not all about going to school. But you still must learn!

    Story
    "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.

    "Almost....."

    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.

    "Badly read"

    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.

    Story
    "An enjoyable,outstanding eye opener !!"
    Would you listen to Rich Dad Poor Dad again? Why?

    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.


    What does Tim Wheeler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    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.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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!!
