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

While there are lot of valid points that are contained in this book, there are lot of points that are not sound advice. Kiyosaki's advice that as a businessman one should always pay himself first before anyone else (even the government) is advice which was followed by another businessman Mallya - he paid himself before his employees, creditors and government. This kind of advice can be a moral hazard.
Also his insistence that only if you are a businessman can you be successful is also not very sound. I have been a businessman for more than 2 decades and to be a businessman requires a certain mindset - risk taking, ability to live without a regular pay check, thick skin etc - it is not everybody's cup of tea. Also 80 - 90% small businesses in India and US close withing 5 years of inception. I have lot of friends who are employees and who are very successful - some who are much more prosperous than me. What is important for security during later years is not whether one is an employee or a businessman but how much one saves and how wisely one invests.
Overall use your discretion - use what sounds logical when one applies common sense and reject the illogical!
If you want a quality print or you want to gift it to someone do not go for this.
As the book says itself best book to teach money control one should at least read this book 1 time in life
the paper quality is OK not good but decent
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.
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.
