Brian’s Review

Rich Dad, Poor Dad is chock full of interesting stories and Robert Kiyosaki  has the talent to tell those stories in such a way that we can learn from them, just as he did growing up. Rich Dad, Poor Dad is designed to teach us the right way to think about money, business and even lifestyle but Robert Kiyosaki also shows us the “why” behind those lesions.

I enjoyed Rich Dad, Poor Dad and it did help my way of thinking as well as the thinking of others. I personally read this book by listening to it via audio book.

The name Robert T. Kiyosaki seems so formal that it makes me want to walk up to him with a "How ya doin' Bob" followed with a fist bump. LOL ~ Brian

Robert Kiyosaki is a master at storytelling but, call me impatient, there were many times throughout the book I found myself wishing the author (Robert Kiyosaki) would get on with it. That's probably an unpopular opinion for a book of this caliber but that's just the way I felt at times.

On the other hand,  I can understand how important the stories are to help us undo decades of wrong-thinking. There's no clear-cut measure on the perfect amount of "repetitive story" for maximum comprehension and training reinforcement. (I wrote that last sentence just to look smart, I have no idea what I'm talking about LOL)

Overall, I say "read the book". It's borderline "Must Read" in my opinion and one thing is certain; your peers and competition will have read.

Keep an open mind and understand Rich Dad, Poor Dad has helped thousands, if not tens of thousands, of people rise about the fluff, lies, and misconceptions and begin to enjoy a financially successful business and lifestyle.

About Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki

The title Rich Dad, Poor Dad (ISBN: 1612680003) is a little intriguing and almost sounds as if Robert T. Kiyosaki had two dads. That’s actually the case, almost… Robert Kiyosaki writes about his dad, a well educated dad that left the world a poor man, and his other dad, which was actually his best friend’s dad, an uneducated dad that died a very rich man.

Kiyosaki covers, in great detail, what he learned from his two dads and how those lessons crafted his way of thinking that allowed him to become very wealthy himself.

About Robert T. Kiyosaki

Wikipedia says Robert Kiyosaki is an investor, businessman, self-help author, motivational speaker, financial literacy activist, and financial commentator. After reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad, I think Mr. Kiyosaki s an artist; an artist of business, inspiration, communication and, most of all, an artist of determinate rationality and wisdom. Kiyosaki had the perception and good judgment to choose the correct lessons and apply them in a most productive manner. That, my friends, is how I see Robert T. Kiyosaki.
