Rich Dad Poor Dad will….
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."

I enjoy passionate narrators. Great content is also a good thing.
There are only a few book that I have read that move you to think in ways that you haven't before. This is one of those books. I started thinking of ways to be able to use this book with in the first hour of the book and continued all through out. I was only going to listen to this book for a couple of minutes to see what it was about. Instead I finished this book in a day. Given that this book is only 6 hours isn't saying too much but I kept me interested and always wanting more.
The narrator did a great job. He wasn't an animated narrator which this book doesn't require. I look forward to listening to more book from the narrator.
One of the more important things I think this book did for me was gave me the immediate desire to learn more and read more for my personal financial wellbeing.
What an amazing book! It has certainly changed the way I look at money and financial well-being. A special thank-you to Robert Kiyosaki for the material presented, if he ever sees this review. The first thing I'm going to do, as he suggests, is invest in my financial education. I'm already looking into other books and looking up seminars in my area. I'm also considering buying the Cashflow game. Thank you.
As for the read, I could not stand Tim Wheeler's constant breath and mouth noises. Since most of my listen was through headphones (driving and walking the dogs), they were unbearable! It got to the point where I had to stop the recording a couple of times and go back because I'd gotten distracted. It was gross, and really took away from the experience. The read itself was also sub-par, in my opinion. I felt the book was being read to me, as opposed to it being NARRATED to me, like it's supposed to feel.
In spite of all that, this book is still an amazing piece of literature to have under your belt. I recommend it to anyone looking to get out of the rat race and becoming financially independent.
The way it changes your perspective on money and how it really works.
I don't have a personal favourite, but I would definitely change the narrator. I think I'd change the EDITOR too, since the breaths and mouth noises (apart from reflecting poor mic technique) are really his/her job to remove.
Before going out and investing in something, INVEST in your FINANCIAL EDUCATION.

This book changed the way I thought about money. It's as simple as that. If you don't know this story, know it.
Rich Dad Poor Dad has a very practical approach to getting rich. it demystified the concept of wealth. it made it obvious that if you play by the rules, you are surely on your way to getting rich.
the rich dad
it made me think a lot. it began to shift my paradigm
Reading this book, has been like learning a foreign language that I "always wanted to know, but never took the time to learn." For a New Entrepreneur such as myself, the information in this book, I feel, has saved me "A LOT" of money from future business decisions that "I KNOW" I will have to make, but am now "better equipped" to do so.
What I like most about the book, is how the information is delivered in story fashion, and not like some textbook, telling you what you should, or should not do - VERY EASY TO FOLLOW.... A MUST HAVE "FOR ALL" ENTREPRENEURS.
I would definitely recommend this book to all of my friends and family as this has really opened my eyes and helped me understand more not only about how to manage money but the way I see life.
The 4 Areas that would help you become more financially literate:
3. The Market
4. The Law
I thought he was very easy to listen to, and very clear and had a great pace :).
Many parts of the book had moved me, especially the parts which he gave real life examples on what he did and how he did. Making it much easier to relate to.
Handle Smart Money
Think and Grow Rich
The start of the book was funny on the kids "Making Money"
yes one sitting
I am a project manager with a Telecoms company in Jamaica. CompTIA certified, 10 years project management experience.
That book smart is not necessarily the best way to become rich.
I was surprised that the poor dad was the educated (book smart) dad; and the rich dad was the street smart dad.
The real deal in becoming rich
I'm 26 and i'm weird. since i was 15 i fell in love with reading but only financial books and things that can teach me something.
Only one thing could make this book a better buy. If Robert Kiyosaki, narrated the book himself. I find, that you get more out of a book like this when the author is also the one reading the book to you. You get more conviction, more enthusiasm about the topic.
all in all great lessons to be learned.
any of the Rich Dad Series.
The Richest Man in Babylon
Tim Wheeler does a great job in the rich dad series. definitely the next best thing to the author, narrating themselves
Perhaps. As a reference.
I already recommended this book because it is knowledge.
I have nothing to request from narrator.
It's all a game, so suffer (or sacrifice) now to have your life wants.
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
"Exceptional, clear, concise and deep"
I listened to this mainly for the story and was a bit concerned it will not be well read as some of the reviews say. I found it extremely interesting and well done. This cab change your life!
"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!!
"Very good book"
Excellent excellent book. I highly recommend listening to this great book. The simple strategy of learning how to increase your financial intelligent is something well worth knowing.
I have been listen the book over and over I am still waiting my daughter to been 6 years to start listen the book by time she will be 15 I hope she own her own house, I wish to listen this book when I was little but it is not to let for me.
