Summary Of The Book
In the book Rich Dad Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! Robert Kiyosaki advocates financial independence through owning businesses, investing, and real estate. He also talks about increasing one's financial intelligence.
What makes somebody rich? Is it hard work that matters the most? Or does one need to make the right financial decisions at the right time to be rich? This book answers these questions with the help of six easy to apprehend learn lessons. Written in the style of a set of parables, it is based on the real life of the author. Robert Kiyosaki takes the reader to his own childhood that he spent in Hawaii.
He promotes the philosophy of wealth creation and emphasizes on purchasing income generating assets. To prove his point, he offers real life examples and relates his own story in which he had two people who influenced him the most. One was his real father – an educator who worked hard to make money, and the other was his father’s best friend – a real estate tycoon who is the Rich Dad of the book and is extremely successful.
His biological father, the Poor Dad of the story, bought consumer goods for his family’s satisfaction and had to remain financially dependent for his entire life. The Rich dad, on the other hand, used his money to create more money-making assets. And this is the attitude that the author highlights throughout the book and says is the basic difference between the poor and the rich.
He values the ownership of high value assets more than being just an ordinary employee. He provides a new look at an old financial mindset. This book claims to teach people how to become rich without requiring a high income and take control of one’s financial future.
The book remained on The New York Times paperback ‘advice’ chart for 100 weeks. It has sold more than 26 million copies. Robert Kiyosaki, a millionaire himself, teaches what kids need to be taught about money and how even poor parents train their kids to be rich someday!

Being a Billionaire isn't That Difficult!Having money doesn't make you a Millionaire, the financial literacy you have makes you a Millionaire. This book takes you to the depth of the attitude of the people towards money. If you want to get out the rat race, difference between asset and liability, financial literacy!! This book is the end to your search.

Good personal finance bookI am a big fan of Rob's mission of spreading financial literacy. He does provide great emphasis on savings & investments in this book. It should be a mandatory reading for everyone specially those in schools and colleges. You would be amazed to find how our understanding of assets and liabilities is so screwed up. His thoughts are eyeopeners for everyone. Buy assets NOT liabilities!!

Must read for everyone!The value of every book depends on how much you learn and apply from it. In this book Robert has tried the best to lay a concrete foundation of financial literacy in the minds of everyone using simple layman language. The earlier you read the better this book will be for You. It throws light on simple formulas for gathering wealth.

Book Review(Complete)Aspects I like Personally, I like this book because it explains the need for financial literacy and explained the concepts in a very fundamental level .This book are not just about the money but how we are trained to think. It helped in looking things differently. The most important part I found in this is not to work for money but to work for learning. The author is successful in explaining these concepts by giving us the scene of action, than lecturing in a formal manner .This book teaches that for an individual to be wealthy, he must work to possess the … (Expand)

Double thumbs DOWN....Even a illiterate indian villager can give you much more useful information on this subject matter(purchasing of land) than this author of Rich Dad series.Every individual knows that investment in property/land is yielding astonishing returns due to real estate boom...then what's new & different in this book??????

Not an investment!This book is not about investment at all. It gives no data or insight into anything related to investment. And the author goes on talking about things that make you feel like you could get rich, but not really talking about anything practical in order to achieve it. Its like a cult. You think it helps, but its just a waste of your time and money. If you are looking to get brainwashed, go ahead and read it.
