Personal-finance author and lecturer Robert Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective through exposure to a pair of disparate influences: his own highly educated but fiscally unstable father, and the multimillionaire eighth-grade dropout father of his closest friend. The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his "poor dad" (whose weekly paychecks, while respectable, were never quite sufficient to meet family needs) pounded home the counterpoint communicated by his "rich dad" (that "the poor and the middle class work for money," but "the rich have money work for them"). Taking that message to heart, Kiyosaki was able to retire at 47. Rich Dad, Poor Dad, written with consultant and CPA Sharon L. Lechter, lays out his the philosophy behind his relationship with money. Although Kiyosaki can take a frustratingly long time to make his points, his book nonetheless compellingly advocates for the type of "financial literacy" that's never taught in schools. Based on the principle that income-generating assets always provide healthier bottom-line results than even the best of traditional jobs, it explains how those assets might be acquired so that the jobs can eventually be shed. --Howard Rothman

All youngsters should read this.
Don't waste your money on liabilities like a new car , a house or a new PC.
Be content with what you have.
In fact I recommend this book should be thought in schools. It's a fantastic guide how to deal with your finances and to develop mentality of rich.
1. It gives you some really bad ideas. By bad I mean borderline illegal. Like befriending rich people for inside information on businesses. It doesn't sound bad on the way he says it but when you realize it, what he's talking about amounts to insider trading (which is illegal). A lot of the book concerns how taxes are bad and suggests how you can take personal corporation route to avoid taxes. That amounts to tax evasion by my understanding. Something that rich people can obviously do, but they can be caught and jailed for it.
2. It doesn't say much actually. When you have gone through the book you'll realize that you didn't gain much from it. Most of what it says is common sense. The best that this book can do is prime your attitude for saving and building up assets so that you can live on their returns. The book doesn't say anything on how to build those assets, how to manage the assets or indeed even give you advice on how to differentiate between assets and liabilities. He does attempt to do it through allegories but I don't think much can be learned from it.
3. He gives you stories and parables that have no backing. The biggest betrayal maybe in the fact that even though this book reads as an autobiography it's not and the person he calls "Rich Dad" didn't actually exist. He makes up a character and the story and tries to feed his advice through it's mouth.Read more ›
