I've not read the print edition.
Other investing/business type books, nothing specifically as it has it's own twist on things.
Focus on my balance sheet and less on my income statement.
This book can be summed up by saying, focus on your balance sheet and overcome obstacles when they're presented.
Yes, short read, some interesting thoughts
Yes, a few tweeks
Probably one of those iconic books, that everyone should read, so that they can talk about it with all the other people who have read it
Id reccomend this audiobook to anyone. Understanding that our day can be long and sometimes what we have left of it feels difficult to actually read the book, listenining to it is as close as it gets. I really enjoy the ideas presented and value the contrast of thoughts brought by the author.
Poor dad. Regretfully i have heard all these advices from my own family. Whats worst is that all of them are stuck (same as poor dad) in the rat race.
Is not as much as i find it my favorite but probably the reflection of myself what makes the poor dad a favorite character.
The performance is quite unique. Some people dont like it others dont care. To me as long as the performer keeps it interesting and the voice doesnt put me to sleep im fine with it.
Id give the performer a 7 or 8.
Not really, since all the book moves you, motivates you if you will.
Ive read and heard other books from this author, and if you are not happy with your financial life this author is a most for your library of references.
Rich Dad is a coaching for life. Yes, I would absolutely listen again.
Recognizing the fear and ignorance of job vs independence
It made me think
You will enjoy listening and learning to this book over and over!! You will understand more about the rich and how they become and stay rich! It's a great book!!
The book is very good!. The reader, Tim Wheeler, has not received proper breathing instruction to narrate a book. Some people don't breath while they speak. This is not a healthy habit. It is distracting to listen to a book where the reader holds his breath and gasps between pauses. It actully interrupts my breathing while listening to him.!!!
Kiyosaki listened to both dads, thought about the advice, and made his decision. I thought going into the book that it would be a presentation of the two different perspectives. Instead it was the bashing of one and exalting of the other. Not that I disagree with rich dad or agree with poor dad, but I would have appreciated the book more if it would have presented the ideas in a more non-biased format, and shown the results of the two types of advice.
Good points are made, I just wish they'd have been presented differently.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is a great book that kicks off a series about thinking differently about money. I think Robert nails the mindset that one has to have to be successful with money.
Robert's stories about the view of his 'rich dad' vs. that of his 'poor dad' really create a dynamic that allows us to compare thinking of the rich to those who want to be more 'secure' but ultimately may not be able to obtain or sustain wealth.
While I wish that the reading of the book was a little faster, Tim does a good job of clear pronunciation, so all can understand, even if English is your second language.
At the end of the day, it's great for everyone to really understand the concept of passive income and how this helps you over your long term view of investing and maintaining wealth.
The conversational tone of the book makes the approach very accessible and easy to absorb for the reader.
I think more actionable advice would he helpful, but perhaps that is addressed in another book by the author. The overall mindset of how to learn and approach wealth creation from any age is well represented.
