Publisher's Summary

Rich Dad Poor Dad will….

  • Explode the myth that you need to earn a high income to become rich
  • Challenge the belief that your house is an asset
  • Show parents why they can’t rely on the school system to teach their kids about money
  • Define once and for all an asset and a liability
  • Teach you what to teach your kids about money for their future financial success

Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence, and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education.

"The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money. The result is that people learn to work for money… but never learn to have money work for them."
—Robert Kiyosaki Rich Dad Poor Dad – The #1 Personal Finance Book of All Time!

Rich Dad Poor Dad is a starting point for anyone looking to gain control of their financial future.” (USA Today)

    "Very Motivating"

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for motivation to ignore any excuses and doubts and take control of their own financial situation.
    The use of the dichotomy of the"rich Dad" and the "poor Dad" to explain the differences in thinking and financial attitudes works perfectly.

    This is much better than any other book about finance I have come across in the past simply because it is much less boring and actually quite entertaining. It was very refreshing to not be forced to wade through chapters upon chapters of mind numbing drudgery, as is the case with most books about financial matters.

    After finishing Rich Dad Poor Dad I experienced a renewed enthusiasm to work towards financial freedom. It presents the information in a manner which is easy for the layman to understand and digest, and is very effective in leaving the reader feeling energized and enthusiastic.

    "Great Book - Bad Narrator"
    Would you try another book from Robert T. Kiyosaki and/or Tim Wheeler?

    Robert - Yes
    Tim - No


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was constantly swallowing and making disgusting noises when he wasn't talking. The noises are loud and extremely unpleasant, especially when listening on earphones.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The content was good.

    "READER NEEDS MORE TRAINING!!!"
    Would you listen to Rich Dad Poor Dad again? Why?

    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.!!!

    "Focus on your Assets....the end"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rich Dad Poor Dad to be better than the print version?

    I've not read the print edition.


    What other book might you compare Rich Dad Poor Dad to and why?

    Other investing/business type books, nothing specifically as it has it's own twist on things.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tim Wheeler?

    Anybody else.


    What did you learn from Rich Dad Poor Dad that you would use in your daily life?

    Focus on my balance sheet and less on my income statement.


    Any additional comments?

    This book can be summed up by saying, focus on your balance sheet and overcome obstacles when they're presented.

    "Life changing perspective"

    Not a huge fan of the narrative or the commentary, but the actual financial advice is rock solid for someone looking to build wealth. This book is an absolute must-read for those who are mature enough to separate the financial principles within from the opinions on how important money is.

    "Those who can't do....teach"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People interested in getting rich quick scams


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert T. Kiyosaki again?

    Absolutely not


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    What character would you cut from Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    Rich dad, since he seems to be an entirely fictional charater


    Any additional comments?

    It is reasonable advice that you should try to build assets (which is a fancy way of investing/saving in something with a reasonable return) and avoid assets that cost more than they pay (like being house-poor or car-poor). But you can save your money from buying this and stop there.

    That's all this book has to offer. It's chalked full of economic inaccuracies. Capitalism doesn't allow businesses to arbitrarily raise their prices nor would it allow us to all "keep" our taxes if they suddenly don't exist (there's this thing called competition).

    But after I was 3 quarters done with the book, I started wondering if the guy was ever going to give some concrete advice so I started googling his name. It turns out his ONLY early business success is teaching about business success. After separate bankrupt ventures in Velcro wallets and t-shrits, he started peddling how-to-get-rich books in the Amway pyramid, despite being unsuccessful himself. That eventually took hold and he started his education company. For me, it's a scam to sell knowledge you don't really seem to possess. Sure, the guy is rich now and dabbles in all sorts of things, but only after selling an idea that he was already successful which doesn't seems to be about as true as the existence of "Rich Dad".
