In 1997, Robert’s book Rich Dad, Poor Dad stunned listeners, stating, "Your house is not an asset." As howls of protest went up around the world, the book went on to become an international best seller, one of the longest-running best sellers in New York Times history.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad is not a book on real estate. It is a book about the importance of financial education. Rich Dad, Poor Dad was written to prepare you and your loved ones for the financial turbulence Robert’s rich dad saw coming.
In 2007, as homes declined in value or were lost to foreclosure, millions of homeowners painfully discovered the wisdom in Robert’s rich dad’s words.
Today, we are all aware that a home can be a liability. Today, we all know a home can go up or down in value. Today, we all know a person can lose money investing in the stock market. Today, we all know our money can go down in value and even savers can be losers.
This is why your financial intelligence is more important today than ever before. In a world of financial turbulence, your best asset is your financial IQ.

This book is all about getting financially smart, money comes to those who know how, the more you know the richer you will become.
I found it leaving me hungry to learn more.
Very informative and kept me interested start to finish.
Narrator is easy to listen to, as in the other rich dad books.
Gives you a good understanding of the history of money, the difference between good debt & bad debt & why the financial industry is set up to keep you in debt.
i will listen to it again to get the take aways. i write down the main theme and summarise in point form and use it for the level of investor im at currently and what i need to do to get where i want to get to. cheers
This well-narrated piece is a must-listen after Rich Dad Poor Dad and Cash Flow Quadrant! Do not ignore the afterword; it contains some of the most valuable economic and financial information I have ever received and highly recommend listening.
Need to have a bit of finance background to be able to catch up with part of the context...speaking for myself of course.
"Not as Good as Rich Dad Poor Dad"
Although an informative book this is mostly for people who are interested in starting their own businesses. Make sure you listen to his books in order as this one does make references to previous books.
"Everyone should read this"
I can't stress enough how crucial this book will be in my future. This, and all of the other Rich Dad books I have read, have altered my life path permanently and for the better. Listen to this audiobook, it can only help.
"Should be required listening"
This is the type off book that is probably better in written form but only because of the need to stop regularly to write notes and examine diagrams. There is so much useful information in this book that I found myself having to stop the program to give myself reminders and write down ideas - a little bit annoying with the audio, but at least one can pick up right where one left off.
It is filled with "aha!" moments - times when something that Kiyosaki says just makes sense of something in the world. I lost count of the number of these as I listened to this book on a long drive.
Tim was clear and easy to understand and didn't become boring - even after nine hours of listening.
Become smarter about money.
This book should be required listening.
The book has good basic information. The concepts are easy to understand, but they lack direct practical implementation. Would have been nice for him to provide more examples of how get got started making his millions.
"First half is good"
First half sparks that fire in you and gets your mind thinking. Second half feels redundant to the other books.
Excellent overall book, great advice, great stories and easy to follow. Sad when it ended. Recommend to everyone to read
Great Book!!! I learned a lot and plan on reading more of Roberts books! Thanks
"Info all people should be aware of"
Very important information about the way money currently works in our society is contained in this book. You may not be an investor or entrepreneur but after listening to this book you will be inspired to become one. A solid educational tool.
I feel like I've been sleep for 44 years and now I understand that for 44 years I've been in complete financial bondage this book has open my mind to so many possibilities not just making money but exercising your ability to get wealth the Bible says, for God has given man the power to get wealth Deuteronomy 8:18. I thank Robert Kiyosaki for helping me to understand that learning and increasing your financial IQ and your self development is the way to true freedom and success.
"Mind Opening ! He's very detailed analysis."
Robert explains what it takes to prepare your mind to become wealthy and why that is important for your future.
"Buy it now"
This is essential for anyone who wants a better life. Listen and start becoming an investor and stop buying liabilities. Really good and buy it now!
"I will keep referring to this book"
I will use this book again and again. Changed my way of financial thought. Definitely worth getting.
"wow wow wow!!"
I am in love!!! Now I am going to enjoy MY adventures...see you on the outside of this race!
Read with and open mind.
The rules of money have changed - to make it in this game you have to learn the new rules.
"knowledge is powerful"
I got an aha moment. my mind was blown.
I will be rich, it now seems inevitable. there are no tips but an effort to help you understand the world as it is an hopefully create a paradigm shift
"Summary - Repeated material from his first book"
After reading his first book and many others. I have decided to ignore all other books Robert Kiyosaki releases. He is clearly taking his own advise and milking the brand to produce rents from his ownership of copyright.
Mastery by Robert Greene
I own most of his books. I already have the mind set and behaviour he teaches prior to reading all his books. If your financially illiterate, it’s enough to read his first book Rich Dad Poor Dad (Unabridged)
"Great for rich investors; not so good for others"
After listening to rich dad, poor dad I had high expectations of this book.It did not really work out for he is primarily singing the praises of full time investing into real estate (buying apartments and renting them out; not shares in a portfolio). Great if you have time and money to do that but I am more looking for ways to invest modest monthly sums in addition to my day job and this does not help me much
No, but still recommend rich dad, ppoor dad
Finished it in one day. Will start all over again! and again. Then in the future.
