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. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."

If you think you’d like some fictional financial advice given to a 9 year old in the 1950’s, that revolves around flipping foreclosed real-estate prior to the 2008 GFC, you’re an idiot, and you will probably love this book. The first half is a fictional retelling of the author’s childhood. It is boring, heavy with repetitive pseudo psychology regarding finance in the 50’s and the “9 year old” it centres around is a poorly developed character, whose personality and maturity change sentence to sentence. The second half offers almost no specific financial advice, just vague idioms like “make your money make money”, etc. The only hint of advice you get is a sense that the author, having written this book prior to 2008, is a big fan of investing in foreclosed properties (GFC anyone?). The book ends with a chapter that is essentially an advert for the author’s other books - classy.
