Perfect timing for a young professional. This book reads easily with many examples. I wish it would go more granular with how to do certain things but perhaps he will in the next books.

This guy is brilliant! I've never had anything enlighten me and make me think about/question my everyday business decisions like this....loved it and now I want more!
Absolutely. Changes your thinking from being a drone of society to being creative and ambitious.
A must read for everyone. I personally agree with many that say this book should be required reading for all our high-school or college youth. Does a masterful job of educating the reader on the difference between employment and entrepreneurial endeavors. It inspires, encourages and empowers the reader to think differently and have the courage to stretch yourself and your thinking. Love this book. Like many this book shows you how to change your thinking from "I can't..." to "How can I...".
this book tell you so much about how to get rich and how to get a new game to show your kids how to stay rich I am so getting that game and I am doing all the thing that he say in this book love this book could not put it down read it in one day wow
I really enjoyed the lessons and way of thinking about money in this audiobook. The stories were somewhat vague and the performance was definitely dull but overall I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn about money
powerful message with wonderful tips and advice for a greater life learnt in this book
"A must read"
If you want to progress in life - this book is a must. A simple but powerful insight into what you need to do right!
Definitely commendable. I wish I had read this years and years ago but that said I have learnt a few things that will change my way of thinking and investing.
Very well narrated book providing tremendous knowledge although some parts were repeated several times.
Would recommend to all my friends.
"Not what I was expecting but worth a read"
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.
I am currently reading the Cash Quadrant.
"Six month review."
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!
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.."
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.
Paced, recumbent, consistent
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 !
A wonderfully narrated book full of life changing ideas and suggestions. My horizons are widened and I am excited for the future of my business and my life. Highly reccommended - I'm currently working through the rest of Robert Kiyosaki' s books, I can't get enough!
"Really eye opening! Acquire assests."
I wouldn't say it was better than the print cope, just more accessible. You can't drivev and read, but you can listen to an audio book whilst driving. Great for busy people. I use the book lke notebook/school book.
Cut out some of the 'rich dad said this' & 'I said that'. It went on for far too long. I don't believe a 10 year old can remember conversations word for word from 10 or 20 years ago, it vecane annoying.
I'm alot like poor dad - lots of degrees certificates on the wall , high salary, large house and was about to treat myself to a Porsche for my 40th - not now! Time to buy assests not acquire more liabilities. My wife thinks I'm having mid-life crisis. No - my eyes are just open and the clock is ticking.
"Really gets your head into the right space"
The series of Rich Dad Poor Dad books are excellent. They really get your head into a different and more useful financial space. I wish I had read these books when I was at school rather than going through half a life-time of making do and limiting thinking.
They should be required study material at school and universities. I have given my daughter a copy so she can listen to it now before she makes the same mistakes I made.
Get it as soon as you can and listen or read it and then take action!
