In Rich Dad Poor Dad, the #1 Personal Finance book of all time, Robert Kiyosaki shares the story of his two dad: his real father, whom he calls his ‘poor dad,’ and the father of his best friend, the man who became his mentor and his ‘rich dad.’ One man was well educated and an employee all his life, the other’s education was “street smarts” over traditional classroom education and he took the path of entrepreneurship…a road that led him to become one of the wealthiest men in Hawaii. Robert’s poor dad struggled financially all his life, and these two dads—these very different points of view of money, investing, and employment—shaped Robert’s thinking about money.

Robert has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people, around the world, think about money and investing and he has become a global advocate for financial education and the path to financial freedom. Rich Dad Poor Dad (and the Rich Dad series it spawned) has sold over 36 million copies in English and translated editions around the world.

  • One Good Idea

    By Apple 895
    The book is mostly a bunch of made-up scenarios, but has a good underlying message of making money work for you instead of you working for money, by having your assets generate most of your income and reducing your liabilities/expenses on the way to building equity. Instead of reading the whole book, it might be better to just read an Investopedia article.

    Great book with awesome money lessons
  • Good Advice but a bit too promotional

    By Sompati
    There were some sound bits of advice but the message lacked nuance, as the author relied a bit too heavily on hos personal experience, particularly his successes, to generate generalized advice and takeaways. Author also does not contextualize the risk profiles of his investments.

  • Test of time

    By Long_blacklesnr
    The book stands the test of time. The lessons are invaluable: I wish I learned as a teen and early adult. Overall the information is broad and will take time and going through life with purpose in order to fully reel in everything the book teaches which is why I believe this book stands the test of time! I wish everyone success in their endeavors!
