    "A must listen!"

    Great book. Narrator not nearly as annoying as I feared from the sample. It seriously nearly kept me from buying this book. It's much less pronounced throughout than the sample and though his heavy breathing/swallowing is annoying, it's mostly unnoticeable aside from a few sections.

    "Great voice annoying breathing but great book"

    Tim Wheeler had a great voice but being able to hear him breath and swallow was annoying. Other then that it was an amazing book that I will listen to many times.

    "Inspirational"
    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Kiysoaki makes clear what the book is about from the beginning. This is sort of a motivational book designed to encourage you to get off your butt and start doing for yourself and stop expecting others to do it for you. There is no "secrete sauce" to getting rich. For me, the book was encouraging and inspiring. I hope I can muster the drive and self discipline to make this happen!
    The book is well written and easy to understand. Narration is excellent.

    Story
    "Not a refrence for Facts, but an Opinion on self"
    If you could sum up Rich Dad Poor Dad in three words, what would they be?

    Improve Your Mind


    What other book might you compare Rich Dad Poor Dad to and why?

    Any book that inspires people to become better than who they are. The reason being is that Rich Dad Poor Dad is a story that is allowing us to think for ourselves about the many perspectives on how we should view a particular thing in our lives. In this book its about our fear of money, in other books it could be about over coming other fears like being different, bullies, etc... This book is not to be used as a reference but along the lines of inspiration that we can do better, if we become better mentally. The biggest difference between this book and others is that there are other tangible things the author tries to sell you on like his board games and other books. Remember he is a best "SELLING" author as he claims, he's going to sell you on his other books, products and services within this book. I can't say this enough but this is a book that gives us a different perspective on how we can improve our minds, but uses Money as a selling point because we all can relate.


    Did Tim Wheeler do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    No, his voice was the same with different characters and you could hear him make sounds with his mouth that made me want to give him a glass of water.


    What did you learn from Rich Dad Poor Dad that you would use in your daily life?

    I'm improving my mind and how I look at things. I do like how he defines assets and liabilities. Also I understand that you have to be very careful of what choices you make. Like what the author is portraying and what he is selling.


    Any additional comments?

    I believe that the book is a stepping stone to improving one self. He captures you by talking about money troubles and using fictional dad (his real father/poor dad) and non-fictional dad (made up/rich dad) and how he was "brought up" and how it's changed him. I do agree that self improvement will make you better. I don't agree on spending money on his other books, products and services from a person who is not backed by supporting evidence.
    In his book he says that you should invest with a person who doesn't make his wealth in investments, thus you should take real estate advice from a person who only says he's made these so called real estate deals.
    So use your mind when you read this book, accept the inspiration of mental self-improvement and question the ulterior motive the author has when he talks about his real estate dealings, seminars, board games, books and events in his life. Seems like he's trying to project stories and opinions as truth and fact which in reality it just make a good story and selling point to convince other people to buy into his other products and services.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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!!

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

    Understanding the difference between 'classes' and assets/liabilities for me personally. I thought the whole book was good as an audio book.

    "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.

    "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.
