Publisher's Summary

The #1 personal finance book of all time... translated into dozens of languages and sold around the world.

Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert's story of growing up with two dads - his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad - and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you. 

20 Years... 20/20 Hindsight
In the 20th anniversary edition of this classic, Robert offers an update on what we’ve seen over the past 20 years related to money, investing, and the global economy. Sidebars throughout the book will take listeners “fast forward” - from 1997 to today - as Robert assesses how the principles taught by his rich dad have stood the test of time. 

In many ways, the messages of Rich Dad Poor Dad, messages that were criticized and challenged two decades ago, are more meaningful, relevant and important today than they were 20 years ago. 

As always, listeners can expect that Robert will be candid, insightful... and continue to rock more than a few boats in his retrospective. 

Will there be a few surprises? Count on it. 

Rich Dad Poor Dad...

  • Explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to become rich 
  • Challenges the belief that your house is an asset 
  • Shows parents why they can't rely on the school system to teach their kids about money 
  • Defines once and for all an asset and a liability 
  • Teaches you what to teach your kids about money for their future financial success

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Don't Work For Money

Robert says don't work for money (except for the first third of your life where you need to accumulate wealth to be able to do anything he suggests). Robert makes some good points, not all of them practical for people who are not yet millionaires. Sure I want to quit my job and invest in real estate but to do that you need a pile of cash...and starting your business is like a 50/50 gamble. Take from this what you want, but don't quit your job just yet!

Not useful and very repetitive

Just keep talking about house is not an asset, don’t work for money, make money work for you. Very repetitive and it’s all talk. Doesn’t actually tell you anything useful - all common sense. Wouldn’t recommend.

This is a game-changer to how I see money

It has lots of good points in this audio, there were some stuff that I questioned example Paying myself first.

After realising the meaning of it and actually implementing it into my life, it does motivate me to look for other sources of income.

it's a great audible and I recommend it.

Mind blown! I once was blind, but now I see.

If you are not a genius don’t worry. You’ll get more from this if you’re like me “The Poor and middle class”. I feel like a different person. I feel like I can do anything with the new knowledge I’ve learned. Thank you.

Dope book to begin your journey of financial literacy

I just downloaded the book and only in the first few chapters but I’m already learning things that I haven’t heard before! I love it so far and recommend to anyone looking to get out of the “rat race”. Also take a look at the pdf files included with the book. In order to do so go to the desktop version of your audible account and go to library, there is where you’ll be able to download the PDFs

if you've read the original, this is too similar

I wouldn't recommend getting this if you've read the original since it seems like the only changes are a bit in the beginning and breaks in between chapters to summarize and review. If you have trouble reflecting on what you've read, then the review sections may be of more use to you. It's still an amazing book and this is the definitive version if you're just getting it for the first time.

Great Book - No Access to PDF of tables & graphs

The book is great and so is the performance of the narrator. But without access to the PDF of the information they mention in some of the chapters, I feel as though I'm missing out on something.

Good book, but terribly cut for audible

This book is pretty good, and confirms a lot of things I’ve come to realize on my own over the years. I must say the first 2/3 or so of the book is really solid, but it gets less insightful and the advice more sketchy toward the end.

Unfortunately, the audible version is cut terribly. It makes no sense to have the study questions from chapter n at the start of chapter n + 1. These should be totally separate chapters in an audiobook. Really disappointed that audible screwed this up so bad.

Must read for investors!

If you are lookong to invest in stocks, real estate, or any other means of investment, read this book. If you consider yourself "middle class" but don't know how to make it out of the "rat race"....read/listen to this book. It will change you life!

Great advice, but my file kept repeating the same things...glitchy throughout. I could have been smoother, but seemed repetitive to me.

Good advice but...

Good advice but not much in the way of actionable help. "Think big" and "take risks" and "exercise your financial genius" aren't very helpful.

Never Gets Boring

I've read this book several times and I listen to it all the time in the car.

I struggle with some audio books but the narrator really emphasises the points that needed.

If you're interested in listening to self help finance books then this will not disappoint.

This book was a great investment!

This book is fantastic to kick start your money adventure. I picked up a used copy a couple years back and have since saved about a third of my disposable income, started investing and have started learning about stock trading and real estate... I've now also purchased the audio book and listen to it to refresh the fire this book started in me.
Get it!

A blog post...stretched in to a book

I have been putting off reading/listening to this book for a while. I enjoy nonfiction books to learn new perspectives, but I found Rich Dad painfully slow and vague. Each chapter feels like it is building to a big reveal and conclusion, only to end with a repetitive summary of the build up.

Awesome book

This is an awesome audible/book. I have learned a lot and was inspired how to better manage my finances or deal with investments such as real estates, stock markets or bonds. Tom did an awesome job with the narration as well. Tone of voice is so clear that I can even listen to it clearly (on speaker) while having a shower.

Too much of a capitalist

Liked the narrator more than the author. Author makes some I retesting points about financial mindset. Not sure that I agree with some of his ethics is freed is good and the lack of respect that business owners have for those who produce his wealth.

Agonisingly repetetive

This book is full of useful advice. That is, if you have only just left high school and are entering into the real world for the first time. Initially it is entertaining, however, as the book progresses it just repeats the same mantra over and over. I knew before I purchased it, that this would be a light hearted attempt as becomming rich, so was looking forward to some mental relaxation and motivation, however the level of repetetive content in this audiobook was too much to take.

I found myself on the "skip 30 seconds" button way too many times.
