    Real experiences, not made up stories

    "Painful to listen to!"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The only way that I believe that this narrator helped this book is by making the sound recording so painful to listen to that you must purchase the book instead.

    You can hear every single breath he takes, you can hear the sound of the spit in his mouth swish about while he moves his tongue, you can hear his gulps. Listening to this book is torturous.

    "Still haven't finished it yet, so I am still poor)"
    Would you try another book from Robert T. Kiyosaki and/or Tim Wheeler?

    No.


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

    No frame of reference.


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

    Yes. Good performance.


    Did Rich Dad Poor Dad inspire you to do anything?

    Not yet. It started too... Right from the beginning, I could see patterns in my own life that were causing my problems. But change requires more than listening to a book.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope. If I every go back to finish it, I may change my mind.

    "HOW TO GET RICH:Make people pay you for a bad book"
    What disappointed you about Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    The underlying message is that one who doesn't want to follow the "greed" methods to get rich is somehow less worthy than those who do.


    Has Rich Dad Poor Dad turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tim Wheeler’s performances?

    Not especially, the reading was rather wooden.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The very first story of the author making money at nine years old made me VERY angry. Although probably not illegal due to the "letter" of the agreement, it was certainly immoral in my opinion. That the author thought that this was OK without a second thought really gives an insight into the values of someone who values money above most decency. That really tainted the opinion on the rest of the data the author presented. He also unabashedly trumpets how the rich influence the tax laws and get wealthier because of such influence. That the author doesn't ponder for a minute whether or not this fair also says a lot about his moral turptitude..

    "Engaging from Start to Finish"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rich Dad Poor Dad to be better than the print version?

    At present have not read the print version, but would consider it. Awesome content!


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

    The story line of literally having two father, a rich dad and a poor dad, makes the lessons and content easy to digest and follow.


    What about Tim Wheeler’s performance did you like?

    Tim is a practical teacher


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

    Awesome, one that makes you want to restart it from the beginning the moment it is over.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Not what I was expecting but worth a read"
    What made the experience of listening to Rich Dad Poor Dad the most enjoyable?

    There are some moments where you think "of course". The author tells us nothing most of us haven't already thought but what makes this book worth a read is it actual inspires a change. As others have pointed out, very US based but the principals are sound.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Robert T. Kiyosaki? Why or why not?

    I am currently reading the Cash Quadrant.

    "Six month review."
    Would you listen to Rich Dad Poor Dad again? Why?

    Yes. The ideas he has are very good - try to get out of working for an employer, become an employer yourself, then get someone to manage that for you so you don't have to work too much yourself. Great idea!


    What about Tim Wheeler’s performance did you like?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    On Google there is much talk of the content of this book being invented, that Robert did not have a Rich Dad and Poor Dad which he refers to in this story, and some of his own life story is fabricated in this book. However, the story works as a good parable to learn from and it reinforces the central idea - that you should get out of employment as soon as you can. However, he suggests going into trading primarily which can be a very risky business.

    The book is worth a read.

    "Great content and superb lessons contained here.."
    Would you listen to Rich Dad Poor Dad again? Why?

    The lessons and stories are highly valuable to anyone in any situation, Young or old, worker drone or the unemployed. Some home truths here make you realise that back in the 50's is pretty much exactly the way life is today, especially since the financial crash.

    To make it a 5 star, fundamentally the narration needs to be significantly improved. Having recently listened to the Woodcutter they are worlds apart in terms of engaging the listener based on the narrator. That aside.. the content and way the lessons are told are very engaging and memorable. Which is unusual for for a self help kind of book.


    What three words best describe Tim Wheeler’s performance?

    Paced, recumbent, consistent


    Any additional comments?

    Get it, listen to it and make some notes. Both about yourself and the things you could change. Also make sure your kids listen to this !
