    "Great Book - Bad Narrator"
    Would you try another book from Robert T. Kiyosaki and/or Tim Wheeler?

    Robert - Yes
    Tim - No


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was constantly swallowing and making disgusting noises when he wasn't talking. The noises are loud and extremely unpleasant, especially when listening on earphones.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The content was good.

    "Focus on your Assets....the end"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rich Dad Poor Dad to be better than the print version?

    I've not read the print edition.


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

    Other investing/business type books, nothing specifically as it has it's own twist on things.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tim Wheeler?

    Anybody else.


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

    Focus on my balance sheet and less on my income statement.


    Any additional comments?

    This book can be summed up by saying, focus on your balance sheet and overcome obstacles when they're presented.

    "Surprisingly Close-Minded"
    What disappointed you about Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    Kiyosaki listened to both dads, thought about the advice, and made his decision. I thought going into the book that it would be a presentation of the two different perspectives. Instead it was the bashing of one and exalting of the other. Not that I disagree with rich dad or agree with poor dad, but I would have appreciated the book more if it would have presented the ideas in a more non-biased format, and shown the results of the two types of advice.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Good points are made, I just wish they'd have been presented differently.

    "READER NEEDS MORE TRAINING!!!"
    Would you listen to Rich Dad Poor Dad again? Why?

    The book is very good!. The reader, Tim Wheeler, has not received proper breathing instruction to narrate a book. Some people don't breath while they speak. This is not a healthy habit. It is distracting to listen to a book where the reader holds his breath and gasps between pauses. It actully interrupts my breathing while listening to him.!!!

    "Very Motivating"

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for motivation to ignore any excuses and doubts and take control of their own financial situation.
    The use of the dichotomy of the"rich Dad" and the "poor Dad" to explain the differences in thinking and financial attitudes works perfectly.

    This is much better than any other book about finance I have come across in the past simply because it is much less boring and actually quite entertaining. It was very refreshing to not be forced to wade through chapters upon chapters of mind numbing drudgery, as is the case with most books about financial matters.

    After finishing Rich Dad Poor Dad I experienced a renewed enthusiasm to work towards financial freedom. It presents the information in a manner which is easy for the layman to understand and digest, and is very effective in leaving the reader feeling energized and enthusiastic.

    "I really enjoy listening over and over again."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Id reccomend this audiobook to anyone. Understanding that our day can be long and sometimes what we have left of it feels difficult to actually read the book, listenining to it is as close as it gets. I really enjoy the ideas presented and value the contrast of thoughts brought by the author.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Poor dad. Regretfully i have heard all these advices from my own family. Whats worst is that all of them are stuck (same as poor dad) in the rat race.

    Is not as much as i find it my favorite but probably the reflection of myself what makes the poor dad a favorite character.


    What about Tim Wheeler’s performance did you like?

    The performance is quite unique. Some people dont like it others dont care. To me as long as the performer keeps it interesting and the voice doesnt put me to sleep im fine with it.

    Id give the performer a 7 or 8.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really, since all the book moves you, motivates you if you will.


    Any additional comments?

    Ive read and heard other books from this author, and if you are not happy with your financial life this author is a most for your library of references.

    "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.

    Informative
    Inspiring
    Educational


    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.

    "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.

    "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 !
