"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)

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.
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.
In the book he says it doesn't take money to make money but when you call for an interview for coaching the first thing that he asks is how much money can you invest. if its not $3000 then the conversation is over.
The narrator was great.
This book has a gold mine of wealth building information, however you must understand that this book is like the foundation of wealth building, they go hand in hand with other wealth books I've read
I strongly recomend is money master the game by Tony robbins,
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!
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! 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.
I will listen to this a couple times a year I think. If you are driven to change your life, then this book will help remind you of ways to keep learning & improving your life strategy.
"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.
"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 .
it could have been condensed into have the size. explaining visual aids such as graphs, figures in more detail and pehaps more creatively would be useful. a Web reference to further reading leads can help as it is not possible to underline or take notes.
"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.
"Pulling me from the Industrial to the Information Age"
Very informative & thought- provoking
Stimulated my thinking & has widened my scope of creativity
Easy to understand
I plan to listen to more in this series
"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!
"Life Changing Lessons"
The practical aspect of the financial educations and the advice given by this book
