In 1997, Robert’s book Rich Dad, Poor Dad stunned listeners, stating, "Your house is not an asset." As howls of protest went up around the world, the book went on to become an international best seller, one of the longest-running best sellers in New York Times history.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad is not a book on real estate. It is a book about the importance of financial education. Rich Dad, Poor Dad was written to prepare you and your loved ones for the financial turbulence Robert’s rich dad saw coming.
In 2007, as homes declined in value or were lost to foreclosure, millions of homeowners painfully discovered the wisdom in Robert’s rich dad’s words.
Today, we are all aware that a home can be a liability. Today, we all know a home can go up or down in value. Today, we all know a person can lose money investing in the stock market. Today, we all know our money can go down in value and even savers can be losers.
This is why your financial intelligence is more important today than ever before. In a world of financial turbulence, your best asset is your financial IQ.

Although an informative book this is mostly for people who are interested in starting their own businesses. Make sure you listen to his books in order as this one does make references to previous books.
I listen to a lot of Audio Books while working :)
I can't stress enough how crucial this book will be in my future. This, and all of the other Rich Dad books I have read, have altered my life path permanently and for the better. Listen to this audiobook, it can only help.
This is the type off book that is probably better in written form but only because of the need to stop regularly to write notes and examine diagrams. There is so much useful information in this book that I found myself having to stop the program to give myself reminders and write down ideas - a little bit annoying with the audio, but at least one can pick up right where one left off.
It is filled with "aha!" moments - times when something that Kiyosaki says just makes sense of something in the world. I lost count of the number of these as I listened to this book on a long drive.
Tim was clear and easy to understand and didn't become boring - even after nine hours of listening.
Become smarter about money.
This book should be required listening.
The book has good basic information. The concepts are easy to understand, but they lack direct practical implementation. Would have been nice for him to provide more examples of how get got started making his millions.
I'm listening to this again and bought the kindle copy so I can have the diagrams. There are negative reviews from ppl who already know it all. I wonder what their balance sheets look like. I haven't read all his books but I don't mind repetition. most of us need to hear things more than once. Robert covers different material in this book and makes it easy to understand and use. I gave this book to my adult children and they are listening to it, too. I highly recommend it. It will change your life IF you act on the information.
Best information ever. Anyone alive In this day and age should read this and force their children to read this. At the very least apply some of Kiyosaki ' s teachings or should I say rich dad's teachings into their up bringing. I would start with the title Rich Dad Poor Dad for a complete understanding of where Kiyosaki is coming from. Hats off to Mr. Kiyosaki thank you for this undiniable logic and generous distribution of invaluable knowlege.
The Book & the story is typical Robert Kyosaki style. Full of little tid bits of history, combined with inside knowledge from Roberts many years as an Entrepreneur & investor. And? the Narrator made understanding what was sometimes rather complex financial scenarios easy with his clear & concise speaking voice. I have to say? It made listening a pleasure.
Audible's program however? Seemed to have difficulty keeping track of where I was in the story when I would switch from one device to another though. Which made things a little confusing in a couple of spots. Well done Overall though. I highly recommend it!
"Buy it now"
This is essential for anyone who wants a better life. Listen and start becoming an investor and stop buying liabilities. Really good and buy it now!
"wow wow wow!!"
I am in love!!! Now I am going to enjoy MY adventures...see you on the outside of this race!
Read with and open mind.
The rules of money have changed - to make it in this game you have to learn the new rules.
"knowledge is powerful"
I got an aha moment. my mind was blown.
I will be rich, it now seems inevitable. there are no tips but an effort to help you understand the world as it is an hopefully create a paradigm shift
"Summary - Repeated material from his first book"
After reading his first book and many others. I have decided to ignore all other books Robert Kiyosaki releases. He is clearly taking his own advise and milking the brand to produce rents from his ownership of copyright.
Mastery by Robert Greene
I own most of his books. I already have the mind set and behaviour he teaches prior to reading all his books. If your financially illiterate, it’s enough to read his first book Rich Dad Poor Dad (Unabridged)
"Great for rich investors; not so good for others"
After listening to rich dad, poor dad I had high expectations of this book.It did not really work out for he is primarily singing the praises of full time investing into real estate (buying apartments and renting them out; not shares in a portfolio). Great if you have time and money to do that but I am more looking for ways to invest modest monthly sums in addition to my day job and this does not help me much
No, but still recommend rich dad, ppoor dad
Finished it in one day. Will start all over again! and again. Then in the future.
