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.
"This book is about choosing new options, new directions, and a new financial future." (Robert Kiyosaki, author)

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.
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 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.
I love this book. Robert's no BS approach to money paved the way for me to leave my job, start a business, and increase my income. No college degree, rich family, or privilege—quite the opposite. Empowered by the information in this book, and others like it, I made a decision to break the line of poverty that ran through my family and to develop the character and humility to learn from my mistakes. Above all, this book taught me: My poverty is my fault and my choice. And because I know that I can now choose otherwise. Thank you for your sacrifices and hard work, Mr. Kiyosaki. Men like you are the reason our society will continue to prosper. I look forward to one day thanking you in person. ~Greg W.
I like how approach in teaching. I agree, everywhere I look it seems is just people trying to tell you a formula that they've used or heard of once upon a time: and that isn't going to always work. In the future we are moving into we are definitely going to need creative intelligence. I'm thankful for this book.
Everyone who wants to improve their life needs to know this information. So many missing pieces of the financial puzzle came together for me when I read this book. I will read it many times more as I apply these principles to my financial life. Thanks to Mr. Kiyosaki, for writing this powerful book and explaining it with such simple clarity!
"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!

"Such an Education in Finance!"
Wow, this has really changed the way I think about and deal with money! Super educational. Now that my kids are old enough, they've learned a great deal too. Priceless information!
"I will keep referring to this book"
I will use this book again and again. Changed my way of financial thought. Definitely worth getting.
"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.
