I thought this was a very good book and resource. I am having my teenage son read this little by little. The book is easy enough to read and understand. To the point and tips can easily be implemented if desired. Would definitely recommend for those that need to learn how to learn

I thought the narration was excellent. The content is very informative. I did feel the information was a bit repetitive but I understand the author is trying to make a point. I think if you eat meat, this book can work for you. Overall interesting book, but I read a lot of these kinds of books so did not feel like it is a life changing book for me.

  • Why 'A' Students Work for 'C' Students and 'B' Students Work for the Government

  • Rich Dad's Guide to Financial Education for Parents

Kiyosaki expands on his belief that the school system was created to churn out Es / Employees...those "A Students" who read well, memorize well and test well... and not the creative thinkers, visionaries, and dreamers - entrepreneurs-in-the-making...those "C Students" who grow up to be the innovators and creators of new ideas, businesses, applications, and products. The audiobook urges parents not to be obsessed with their kids' "letter grades" ("good grades" might only mean they or the student themselves were successful in jamming a square peg into a round hole...) and focus, instead, on concepts, ideas, and helping their child find their true genius.

I thought this was a great book. The narrator is clear and reads the book well. I can't say I agree with every single idea in the book, but it did open my mind to a lot of new ideas. Most importantly it has gotten me on the tract of teaching my kids about financial education. Highly recommend.
