Publisher's Summary

In Rich Dad Poor Dad, the author - Robert Kiyosaki - describes being raised by two dads. One was his real dad - the other was his best friend's dad (who acted as a dad for him).  

This guide will help lead you through the six lessons he learned from his rich dad on how to be wealthy. 

These lessons include: 

  • The rich don't work for money 
  • The rich invent money 
  • The history of taxes 
  • The power of corporations 
  • And so much more! 

Mr. Kiyosaki stresses he is not recommending you follow every step he took to the letter. He simply makes some suggestions that got him to where he is - and could possibly help you.

MUST LISTEN!

Excellent transaction, condition of the book as described. Arrived sooner than expected. The book is ok, not the type of book I would usually read. In talking about finances one do not expect a story.

Improve your current self.

It was eye opening. The author has a way of presenting in a nice and simple way. Even if you don't have the guts to take his advice you can walk away with some wisdom and tips to improve your current self.

This is an ENLIGHTENING listen.

This is probably my favorite book of all time. It taught me to think differently. It really breaks down the difference between assets and liabilities and how true wealth is defined.

Well summarized.

This book is timeless in that its principles and ideas can be applied universally. However, there is something that I find troubling about some of his teachings. On one hand he states that he does not advocate debt, but on the other hand, he seems to advocate borrowing money to take advantage of financial opportunities.

This is a fantastic book with terrific insights.

This is a fantastic book with terrific insights. The title and the beginning may make you feel uneasy, especially if you did not grow up with a rich dad, but once you get over it and understand the straightforward nature of the lessons, this book is priceless.

Best Informative.

This book was straight forward and easy to understand. This has taught me some of the techniques I have been longing for in making my money work for me. I have heard the rich have done this all my life, but have never understood how until listening this book. Can't wait to get out there and let my assets work for me.

Clear summaries and analysis,excellent discussion.

The book is easy to listen, and the message is clear. What I like the most is that it doesn't give you a secret formula, a snake oil recipe or silver bullet, but instead go down to basics. I loved the book .

Fantastic. Enjoy this book.

This book is amazing. Some people say that it gives young people the wrong message but I think that's because they're scared. The book teaches you how to think for yourself and think differently. I enjoyed it and will be listening more of the rich dad books.
