      Rich Dad Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! is a book in which Robert Kiyosaki shares the secrets of increasing one’s financial independence and financial intelligence.

      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!

      Good personal finance book

      I 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!!
      BTW I am not sure whether people can become rich following his tips, but they can definitely become more fin...

      Moderate

      2 rates because the condition of the book wasn't good. Though it was the most awaited book and definitely worth the pay as the book makes total sense, its good for people who want to learn financing they money. Flipkart makes good delivery. Always trusted. Just a request to the seller make sure that the pages are good as books means a lot to the reader.
