    "Same thought repeated over and over"

    The motivation is there, the actionable ideas are not. Same thoughts repeated over and over as fill is annoying.

    "Buyer Beware: Not what it seems"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    One claim in the beginning of this book is that any investor of any level can get some thing form this book. After grinding through the entire book, I can say that this is almost entirely false. Robert does go through some points about becoming an investor can be important, but that's really it. You keep getting the feeling that he will walk the listener into a new ideas, but instead he always finds a way to circle back to old ideas (many from his first book) and repeat the to a mind numbing level.

    This book titled guide to investing, but there's next to nothing about investing as it pertains to how the economy works, stocks, bonds, futures, ect. There's some, but its an afterthought.

    I also covered Rich Dad Poor Dad, and I found some of the philosophy easily palatable to readers. but that was it. I think that all the author had to say was in that book, and I personally cant imagine that I will buy another book in this series. If you are interested in investing, then you will find plenty other great ones on Audible.

    "Learnt allot even though there may be some fluff"

    Whether you like him or not, Robert has great advice and really changed my way of thinking as well as reinforced my way of thinking in some areas. Ever since I started following his guides, my life has changed for the better and I finally feel like I'm in control of my life.

    Their are some issues with the book in that there is a bit of fluff where he says the same thing over and over but in different ways, and then if you're already familiar with his other books he goes over stuff you already know, over and over, so its a little annoying. BUT there's a lot of new info in here that's definitely worth buying the book for.

    If you're trying to get out of the rat race of that 9 to 5 then get this book. Its worth it, get it on audible and listen to it while in traffic. You'll get a fire like never before to get your life on track to stop working for money and get your money working for you.

    "Repetitive Sales Pitch & Fake Stories"
    What was most disappointing about Robert T. Kiyosaki’s story?

    This book completely fiction and made up. He never had 2 dads and "Rich Dad" never existed. It's been proven and he's admitted it. Yet, with his horrible writing and disturbingly repetitive stories and statements, it's amazing how he can repeat the same garbage for this long, book after book after book.

    If you read the first book, you will NOT get anything new out of here. So disappointed, it's a complete rip off and sales pitch to attend his seminars and buy his ridiculously expensive mentoring packages (that are just more sales pitches).


    Any additional comments?

    DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS BOOK! Fair warning, it's the same stuff in his first book, just overly embellished, exaggerated, and useless. He literally continues to repeat, "your house is not an asset" "Rich Dad's philosophy is your house is not an asset" "Why call your house an asset if it costs you money" "your house is not an asset" "Rich Dad's philosophy is your house is not an asset"..... see where I'm going?

    DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!

    "Good, but Rich Dad Poor Dad was much better"

    Pretty good overall. There's a lot of redundancy, but I learned some important things. I certainly wouldn't consider this a must...

    "Repititive"

    This is a very long book with LOT AND LOTS of fluff. He says a lot without saying anything important, restating the same useless banter about himself over and over again. It's frustrating. Over and over he says the same things, it's as though he needed to repeat himself just to have enough content to fill a book. It could have been less than half its length. It's pathetic and I feel cheated.

    Story
    "Insightful and philosophical"
    What made the experience of listening to Rich Dad's Guide to Investing the most enjoyable?

    Very interesting not only in the direct message, but the indirect zen like messages of how we look at wealth and what real wealth actually is. As Robert Kiyosaki points out, people who only count money and look for money will never have the money they so desire. Happiness is not a product of cash, it is a product of attaining true understanding of how things work.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Robert, because he writes directly of his experience of striving to understand the different view of life through both fathers.


    What about Tim Wheeler’s performance did you like?

    Seemed to fully grasp the concepts of the material. Even when it was repetitive, he keeps it flowing.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Robert describes his fathers rise in the academic world only to find himself at the mercy of a defeated system. This strikes home with so many people I have known who worked for companies for many years only to find themselves abandoned in midlife. They drank the kool-aid that led them to the end of the road with no exit.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though it seems repetitive, the message needs repeating. The point of the story needs to be emphasized.

    "Great content when actually getting into investing"
    Would you listen to Rich Dad's Guide to Investing again? Why?

    Yes - the mindset behind the guidance is enlightening and refreshing all at the same time. Definitely different than the traditional mindset around money management but certainly also the most 'real' view on how more aggressive investors get rich.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the way that Robert discusses how he had to think differently about investing from Mike due to the difference in income and the implications that this had on investment strategy.


    What three words best describe Tim Wheeler’s voice?

    slow


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't expect the book to spend so much time on starting a business. In many ways I was a bit surprised that the title didn't allude to this more given it was such a major part of the book. Even still it was a good message.

    "I gave this book 3 and half hours. Waste of time."

    I tried to give this book a fair go and listened for 3 and a half hours but it is the worst book I have had off audible. It is incredibly repetitive and boring and in the time I spent listening to it, it taught me absolutely nothing of any use.

    The author spent most of the time referring to his other books to try and get you to buy them as well and then telling you what he was going to tell you later in the audiobook and not actually giving any useful information.

    If you want to learn about investing I'd say you're much better off with books like The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham and The Education of a Value Investor by Guy Spier.

    "great book"

    I love the rich dad series. I bought the book months ago, however as it was over 400 pages I felt too overwhelmed to start it. Listening to the audio was great, and I completed it in a week in my spare time. Very thought provoking and challenging. I can't wait to build a business and invest from the inside 😊

    Robert has a talent to break complicated matters down and make them easy to understand for all. There was so much repeating of the same old stories tho which was kinda annoying! Like the beach front property story!

    This is an ideal book for audiobook. It tends to be very repetitive but that is less of a problem when listening than reading. Very motivational and insightful. The ideas are very simple and although I was familiar with the concepts previously I did learn more about their application.

    "Great property investing advice"

    A great book that I have re-listened a few times giving some sound advice on the ways of investing in property as well as starting a new business. This book links well with other books written by Robert Kiyosaki. It is very clear and has a great story that Robert shares and suitable for anyone looking to improve their financial situation. When talking about the benefits of starting a company Robert does refer to American tax system, however it is very similar to the one in UK.
