"Investing means different things to different people. In fact, there are different investments for the rich, poor, and middle class. Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing is a long-term guide for anyone who wants to become a rich investor and invest in what the rich invest in. As the title states, it is a "guide" and offers no guarantees... only guidance.” (Robert Kiyosaki)

Audiobook is very good. It's very long & progresses slowly slowly.Notice that it comes in 2 Parts.If you find the 1st Part too basic, go straight to Part 2.
Yes - the mindset behind the guidance is enlightening and refreshing all at the same time. Definitely different than the traditional mindset around money management but certainly also the most 'real' view on how more aggressive investors get rich.
I love the way that Robert discusses how he had to think differently about investing from Mike due to the difference in income and the implications that this had on investment strategy.
I didn't expect the book to spend so much time on starting a business. In many ways I was a bit surprised that the title didn't allude to this more given it was such a major part of the book. Even still it was a good message.
Very interesting not only in the direct message, but the indirect zen like messages of how we look at wealth and what real wealth actually is. As Robert Kiyosaki points out, people who only count money and look for money will never have the money they so desire. Happiness is not a product of cash, it is a product of attaining true understanding of how things work.
Robert, because he writes directly of his experience of striving to understand the different view of life through both fathers.
Seemed to fully grasp the concepts of the material. Even when it was repetitive, he keeps it flowing.
When Robert describes his fathers rise in the academic world only to find himself at the mercy of a defeated system. This strikes home with so many people I have known who worked for companies for many years only to find themselves abandoned in midlife. They drank the kool-aid that led them to the end of the road with no exit.
Even though it seems repetitive, the message needs repeating. The point of the story needs to be emphasized.
This book completely fiction and made up. He never had 2 dads and "Rich Dad" never existed. It's been proven and he's admitted it. Yet, with his horrible writing and disturbingly repetitive stories and statements, it's amazing how he can repeat the same garbage for this long, book after book after book.
If you read the first book, you will NOT get anything new out of here. So disappointed, it's a complete rip off and sales pitch to attend his seminars and buy his ridiculously expensive mentoring packages (that are just more sales pitches).
DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS BOOK! Fair warning, it's the same stuff in his first book, just overly embellished, exaggerated, and useless. He literally continues to repeat, "your house is not an asset" "Rich Dad's philosophy is your house is not an asset" "Why call your house an asset if it costs you money" "your house is not an asset" "Rich Dad's philosophy is your house is not an asset"..... see where I'm going?
DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!
Whether you like him or not, Robert has great advice and really changed my way of thinking as well as reinforced my way of thinking in some areas. Ever since I started following his guides, my life has changed for the better and I finally feel like I'm in control of my life.
Their are some issues with the book in that there is a bit of fluff where he says the same thing over and over but in different ways, and then if you're already familiar with his other books he goes over stuff you already know, over and over, so its a little annoying. BUT there's a lot of new info in here that's definitely worth buying the book for.
If you're trying to get out of the rat race of that 9 to 5 then get this book. Its worth it, get it on audible and listen to it while in traffic. You'll get a fire like never before to get your life on track to stop working for money and get your money working for you.
Yes! This is a guide and an invaluable part of my personal library.
Yes - Tim Wheeler is excellent as always.
Yes. I had a lot of WOW moments and came to realize that I really need to make several changes in my life. Thank you Robert!
This is a very long book with LOT AND LOTS of fluff. He says a lot without saying anything important, restating the same useless banter about himself over and over again. It's frustrating. Over and over he says the same things, it's as though he needed to repeat himself just to have enough content to fill a book. It could have been less than half its length. It's pathetic and I feel cheated.
Pretty good overall. There's a lot of redundancy, but I learned some important things. I certainly wouldn't consider this a must...
"Great financial education as always!"
Robert has a talent to break complicated matters down and make them easy to understand for all. There was so much repeating of the same old stories tho which was kinda annoying! Like the beach front property story!
A very interesting and informative read, which I will undoubtedly read again. I recommend this to anyone wanting to know in depth about the mindset of the rich, but they must first have an open mind to understand fully.
There can't be Anything better out there. Makes me wanna get through all of the books. Such an exciting read/listen
"So good you'll have to listen at least twice"
There's so much knowledge that this guy dispenses it's hard to take it all in , one go isn't enough .
"Excellent for audiobook"
This is an ideal book for audiobook. It tends to be very repetitive but that is less of a problem when listening than reading. Very motivational and insightful. The ideas are very simple and although I was familiar with the concepts previously I did learn more about their application.
"Great property investing advice"
A great book that I have re-listened a few times giving some sound advice on the ways of investing in property as well as starting a new business. This book links well with other books written by Robert Kiyosaki. It is very clear and has a great story that Robert shares and suitable for anyone looking to improve their financial situation. When talking about the benefits of starting a company Robert does refer to American tax system, however it is very similar to the one in UK.
"awful and repatative "
this book is more of a scam than a pyramid scheme! such a rip off and it's so repatative. I highly advise that you stay away.
"Outstanding educational insight!!"
Well this is a long book, which I listened to whilst at work :) this has given me a new sense of purpose and determination to get out of this rat race!!
Schools need to teach this sort of education and not all of the subjects that are of no value to the modern day pupil!
Great work Robert and I will now go purchase another of your books :)
I love the rich dad series. I bought the book months ago, however as it was over 400 pages I felt too overwhelmed to start it. Listening to the audio was great, and I completed it in a week in my spare time. Very thought provoking and challenging. I can't wait to build a business and invest from the inside 😊
"amazing 5 star"
loved it so helpful and informative to acheive riches. and anyone wanting education into investing this is a must listen to.
