Just awesome

I wish I had read this book ten years ago. I feel like I have gained more from the last several hours than I did from most of my university courses.

Enlightenment on investment

Excellent book. Too bad, I listened to this book only now. most importantly it is a real story. It not an author narrating a x, y, z technique to become rich or for better investment, but a real self experience. A must read book.

So / So

I really wanted to like this book. Some (not much) original thought. The idea of measuring financial health through cashflow from portfolio income is interesting. The comments about financial education were interesting. The distinction between assets and liabilities (based on the author's criteria) is interesting ... Some generalities and lack of substance. For example (using my words), if you don't have your own money's to invest, use other people's money. High risk investments sometimes pay off. It's a great idea to buy low and sell high. Come on! All in all, not a total waste of time, but not a masterpiece either.

Get to the point...

Author makes a very valid but very simple point: spend you money on things that earn you money. Don't spend on material items that only depreciate. The problem is he talks in circles about this theory over and over again. You think you'll get more out of it but you never do. Spend your money on assets that grow and teach your kids about money. Simple. Saved you several wasted hours. Also, coloured with some anti-tax rhetoric. Just a warning.

Great Storyline

This book is written in a great perspective. It has a way of keeping you interested and wanting more. The language is normal everyday language that makes this a great read for a wide spread age group. This will be a book that I keep in my collection and read a few times over without a doubt. I highly recommend reading this if you're interested in gaining a good understanding on handling money. I have already put my order in for the Cashflow 101 board game!

Must listen!

I enjoyed listening to this classic. It’s full of helpful one liners. In terms of the narration, I agree with the rest of the reviews. It’d have been better to have the author to narrate. I’d definitely recommend this A. book to all friend and family.

Another scammer

I was curious about this book because I've heard a couple of people who dabbled in investing and Real Estate swear by this guy. So I checked out this Audible. Have to admit that rich dad story was spellbinding! Almost fell for it hook, line, and sinker! Then I started wondering why this author seemed so enamored with Trump as his story went on, so I researched his bio and now I understand why. They are practically cut from the same cloth, so to speak. They look down on intellectuals, peddle their seminars for profit, declare bankruptcies to avoid their financial obligations, etc. Good grief! Enough with these scams already! Don't understand how they could game the system so well and fool so many people as they laugh all the way to the bank. Rich dads, poor morals.

Wow. This book is one big bad advice

The only good advice here is that you should work on your financial education. Which is common sense

If you're into fear mongering and exploiting....

I was super disappointed by this book. I am so disappointed by this book that I actually felt compelled to leave a review so others don't wast their time or energy....I had heard Robert Kiyosaki speak in some interviews and I found what he had to say was interesting and he himself seemed very charming so I was happy to purchase the audio book to hear more from him. I wanted to like it so badly - I really did - I even forced myself to continue to listen even when I knew what he was saying was not true and just fear mongering. But in the end I was just wildly disappointed! It's a very pure capitalist view of the world -he literally outlines how his "Rich Dad" basically exploited people for cheap labour and then turns it around saying those people choose to exploit themselves (insert eye roll...) .... if you have a single shred of socialism coursing through your blood please avoid this at all costs.... It's not all completely horrible as he does make some very basic and decent take home messages but overall I just found the whole thing really distasteful and much more in line with "get rich quick" schemes. I also found the whole narrative around "rich dad" and "poor dad" to be a pretty big stretch and quite frankly, not super realistic. It's really unfortunate- I think this man has some interesting ideas but the idea that you can only be rich by exploiting "less fortunate" people around you is just not the strategy for me....

Fiction

This book is a great motivational fictional story. There is nothing useful for real life and I believe some advices are pretty much illegal.

great book but....

The book itself is worth the buy and then some, the only reason I found it hard to finish was one thing that the narrator did. Constantly having to hear him have to "wet his lips" is irritating to the listener, especially when using headphones while listening. It's not normally a big deal unless it's something you have to hear every other sentence.

Outdated and ironic

I had read the paper version of this book in 2011 while attending grad school. Having little to no financial literacy at the time, the concepts were foreign but digestible. I would like to think that I took away some of the author’s broad themes after I completed the book. Desiring an easy ‘filler’ book between two others, I recently returned to the audiobook version for a catch-up. One of the first things I noticed these six years later was that several of the anecdotes were outdated or misleading. Specifically, the continued referral to Donald Trump’s financial abilities. Now I’m not pretending to know everything there is to know about Trump’s financial status, but I thought he bankrupted his companies? Which brings me to my last thought of irony. After finishing the audiobook this time around, I read a few articles online informing me that Kiyosaki (his company) has recently declared bankruptcy as well. Additionally, several countries have him and his business under intense scrutiny for fraud and scams. Again, I don’t know all the facts (and you should do your own research to build your own case) but I do find it somewhat worrisome that an author who’s trying to aid in financial intelligence and give us tools to increase our cash flow is himself in hot water financially and morally. At the end of the day, it’s your time and money; do what you want with them. For me, I won’t be recommending this book again. I believe Kiyosaki’s time has past.

Those who can't do....teach

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

People interested in getting rich quick scams

Would you ever listen to anything by Robert T. Kiyosaki again?

Absolutely not

Which scene was your favorite?

None

What character would you cut from Rich Dad Poor Dad?

Rich dad, since he seems to be an entirely fictional charater

Any additional comments?

It is reasonable advice that you should try to build assets (which is a fancy way of investing/saving in something with a reasonable return) and avoid assets that cost more than they pay (like being house-poor or car-poor). But you can save your money from buying this and stop there.

That's all this book has to offer. It's chalked full of economic inaccuracies. Capitalism doesn't allow businesses to arbitrarily raise their prices nor would it allow us to all "keep" our taxes if they suddenly don't exist (there's this thing called competition).

But after I was 3 quarters done with the book, I started wondering if the guy was ever going to give some concrete advice so I started googling his name. It turns out his ONLY early business success is teaching about business success. After separate bankrupt ventures in Velcro wallets and t-shrits, he started peddling how-to-get-rich books in the Amway pyramid, despite being unsuccessful himself. That eventually took hold and he started his education company. For me, it's a scam to sell knowledge you don't really seem to possess. Sure, the guy is rich now and dabbles in all sorts of things, but only after selling an idea that he was already successful which doesn't seems to be about as true as the existence of "Rich Dad".

Multi level marketing

Don't waste your time and if you don't believe me, just do your own research on the author and this book before listening to it. I looked into it after I burned my audible credit and the content in the book raised some red flags.
