Rich Dad’s Cashflow Quadrant reveals how some people work less, earn more, pay less in taxes, and learn to become financially free. Have you ever asked yourself:
Cashflow Quadrant was written for you if you are ready to…
"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." (Robert Kiyosaki)

The rich have a totally different set of rules and (fiscal/financial) laws that they live by. And it is not discriminating. Every person can choose to life on the E (employee) and S (self employed) side of live where they are taxed heavily and always struggle to stay on top or on the B (business owner) and I (investor) side of life, where true freedom is possible.
This book is read in such a way that it's almost as if you can hear Robert Kiyosaki read it himself. Which is great of course. Great combination of great writing (in speaking-style) and performance of narrating it for us.
Very easy and pleasant to listen to and it changes your persective on society and really makes you think and want to start changing stuff.
I recommend you play the online version of Cashflow 101, the online game, after listening to this book.
This had more detail, and I found it to be more motivating than RD/PD.
It's time to evaluate whether I intend to stay in the E (Employee) quadrant, or move to the B (Business Owner) or I (Investor) quadrants.
If you get nothing out of this, you should get that proper cash management is a significant key to financial independence. Stop spending, start paying off revolving and other debt, and start on the B side of the quadrant, while building towards the I side. I recommend this book to anyone who desires to finally take control of their finances.
I was trying to decide whether or not to copy and paste this review across all of Kiyosaki's Rich Dad related books, and I came to the conclusion that I would. Here's why:
The information his books is repurposed many times over, and while there is some new information in each book, there is really an embarrassing amount of repetition. I hate to say it, but it does seem like Robert is trying to squeeze blood out of a stone at this point.
There is a level of deception in repeating his information - readers like myself who value his work will buy all of his books, to find that they have spent $200 on an overall total of two books worth of unique content.
With all of that said, I don't complain, because that $200 has been a very, very lucrative investment in my life. Without reading Kiyosaki's books, my current mindset would not be the way that it is, and I would not be in the position that I currently find myself in.
Overall, if you haven't read Rich Dad books before, and you wish to be successful and wealthy in business and investing, you are doing yourself a disservice if you do not read them. Just please be aware, once you have read one or two, you will have to sift through some regurgitated content to find the hidden gems.
SciFi and Business Productivity
I don't know how many times I've listened to this and Rich Dad Poor Dad but I could put a dollar figure it has earned me. I'm actually applying the principles and it works. I'm still at a low level but it truly is simple (if not always easy.) It is the 50000 foot view, it doesn't get into nitty gritty detail. But if you want to get your head right to grow your wealth then this is a must read.
I would recommend this book to any entrepreneur who is new to the world of business and investing. Realized that I need to open a corporation or LLC to protect myself against higher taxes since I am in the S Quaudrine . I'm going to even put my car under my LLC and various other things to protect my Wealth. Good continuation of roch dad poor dad!
I have read a lot of Robert Kiyosaki books and I am highly impressed and learnt from them. This book, Cashflow Quadrant, is no exception. I first read the cashflow quadrant book, and then i bought the audiobook and listened to it.. I found it a lot easier to just listen to this audiobook on my laptop, Smartphone and other devices. I listen to this audiobook very frequently and it keeps me going in my desire to become my own success. This audiobook is very motivational. There is nothing better than been able to listen to this type of message in a relaxed mood from your Smartphone or laptop. Thank you Mr Kiyosaki.
The book is clearly written for an American audience, with lots of references to US tax law.
No but personally I would avoid other books by the same author. There is just far too much repetition, little in the way of content and annoyingly constant references to buying the author's 'cashflow' game!
The narrator is easy enough to listen to... it's just the content that might send you to sleep at times.
Rich Dad - far too pleased with himself!
I haven't read the original but thought I would give this one a try. There are occasional interesting passages but mostly it feels like the author is trying to spin out a limited amount of information over a whole book.
"need to listen more than once"
Amazing book that really explains the cash flow quadrant and how to get to the right side. I say you need to listen to it more than once as you start doing the tips you will most definitely need to review the rest.
This was well worth the money.If you don't like it you can always refund it.
"Great, changes perspective on thinking"
Changes your perspective
The way Robert describes points in his life that caused him to look at things differently.
I would definetly recommend this book, and already have to a number of my friends, aswell as playing the kashflow app, which is a fun but very aligned and educational.
"Great book, great guide"
Very informative! This book will help you find the right path. You will not regret the purchase of this book.
I don't normally listen or read this type of book but it pulled me in - listening to it really kicks starts my thinking
I have never read a book like this
An easy to listen to voice
Not a get rich quick a get rich smarter
"Interesting, but not much information added"
If you have read "Rich dad, poor dad", you will find a lot of repetitions here. There is not much information added, and it was a bit disappointing to re-listen (or re-read) the same concepts and examples. However, it you are just starting on this path it is useful to repeat and consolidate ideas that could be totally new for you. Download it just in the last case.
The narrator is very good. Clear pronunciation and good pace.
I hadn't read Rich Dad Poor Dad but listening to this one I wonder is was there anything I didn't get on this one. It's a great book and also very practical.
"Everyone should read this book!"
The Rich Dad Poor Dad series of books is a must for anyone seeking financial freedom. I wish I'd read it when I was just starting my working career, things could have been very different if I had! I've bough the RDPD for Teens book for both my sons in the hope that they will learn about money, particularly how to not spend your life working for money but to make your money work for you. Robert Kiyosaki makes it all seem so simple & obvious, he has changed the way I think about work and money.
