I had started to read this book a few months ago, It has been an eye opener to a lot of things I have not known before. This book has showed me that a lot of people are afraid to lose their jobs, so they work a 9-5 for security. The book shows that most people would rather come to their boss and wait in line to beg for a raise, as opposed to making their own path. Mind your business, as a bank teller who’s business are you minding? are you minding your own or are you simply working someone elses business in the hopeless hopes of one day being the boss? Robert has said in this book that he has had two fathers, one, the rich one and the other is the poor dad. The rich dad and poor dad both believe in education, but rich dad believes in endless education and the poor dad believes in education in order to get a good paying stable job, not knowing that leads into the trap that most fall into.
I am rating this 5 out of 5 stars, it is an amazing book, easy to read and introduces the reader to new concepts that are easy to grasp. I highly advise anyone to read this book.
April 2017 marks 20 years since Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad first made waves in the Personal Finance arena.
It has since become 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 readers “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, readers 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.
