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

If you liked our review, do give it a Helpful vote...it helps:)
First few chapters repeatedly emphasize the distinction between the perspectives held by rich and poor with respect to money. Moving ahead you'll find the rational about what makes an individual either rich or poor, which is very eloquently explained by the author. Nice narrative with real life references.
Whether we make money to get rich or not just by reading this book is not the point of concern, but the importance of the content of this book is that it reflects on the mindsets we all tend to develop over a period of time. This, at the least helps us in focusing on making a financial plan for the days ahead of us.
