Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki

Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Personal finance author and lecturer Robert T. Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective from two very different influences - his two fathers. One father (Robert's real father) was a highly educated man but fiscally poor. The other father was the father of Robert's best friend - that Dad was an eighth-grade drop-out who became a self-made multi-millionaire. The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his poor dad pounded home the count...

    I bought this book on the recommendation of a client, and from page one I was feeling uncomfortable with it. I pushed aside the part of my mind that was shouting "This guy is trashing highly educated people and the working poor!" and I was able to actually become enthusiastic about the message of the book. Here is the message of the book, and as far as I can tell, the only thing of value in its pages: * When you own something, it is either puttin...

    This book may do a good job of getting you excited about your financial future but the false information it teaches negates any benefits.I believe this book does a disservice to the public. I suspect it was written to appeal to those who are failing in the world's conventional definition of success. Didn't go to college? Can't hold down a stable job? Good for you! You haven't fallen for that waste of time and stupid rat race like all those other ...

    This book is not just about money. It's about how we are taught to think; how we are programmed by schools, family, and friends to look at the rich as greedy no good bloodsuckers and opportunities as risks. It is an attempt to reprogram minds to look at why we do what we do.. why do we buy all these shoes, clothes, cars, jewelry.. have we earned it or are we just trying to maintain an image? To me the most important thing it teaches is that being...

    الكتاب غني وثري .. ويحكي قصة كيوساكي الأمريكي من أصل ياباني .. حين تربى على يد أبيه الفقير وكان يتلقى منه الأوامر دوماً بالتعلم والتعلم فقط حتى يحصل على وظيفة بالكاد تسد رمق مصروفاته وأساسيات حياته .. بينما أبوه الغني " وهو أب لصديقه !" كان يعلمه كيف يد...

    I read this book while in an Entrepreneur phase. On one hand, it is rather inspiring, in a John Madden sort of way. You see, John Madden (American football broadcaster) always makes everything sound easy, which may be how he coached the Raiders to the superbowl. He'll say something like "now what they need to do here is score a touchdown. I think that if they can do that, they will turn this game around". I still recall a memorable game where a q...

    While driving for the Thanksgiving vacation, my husband and I listened to Robert Kiyosaki’s book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad, on CD. This book helped us to expand and to think outside the box when it came to money. It gave us many things to think about and other ways to view our finances. I enjoyed it so much that I not only listened to it twice on CD, but also read the book itself. In his book, Kiyosaki reveals that he had two fatherly perspectives wh...

    دوستانِ گرانقدر، نکتۀ خاصی جهت نوشتن ریویو در این کتاب به چشمم نخورد... به نظرم کتاب دوم «کیوساکی» حداقل بهتر از این کتاب بود... اینگونه بنظر میرسید که در خیلی از قسمت هایِ این کتاب، نویسنده فقط خواسته بود بنویسد تا تعداد صفحاتِ کتاب زیاد شوددو قسمت ا...

    رابرت کیوساکی یک نویسنده ی موفق نیست فقط یک فروشنده ی موفق هست که توانسته کتابش را هم خوب بفروشد و خودش هم این را میگوید , در کنار این هنر خوب فروختن کتابش هم مفاهیم اولیه ای از تفکر یک فرد ثروتمند برای ما به نمایش میگذارد , کل حرف هایش که در این همه صفح...

    This book goes on my shelf of four books I read over and over, books I read devotionally. It totally revolutionized my outlook not only on making money, but also on education. I wish everyone would read this. I wish the close-minded, those who graduated from whatever school they attended and haven't allowed themselves a new thought since, could break through the stone walls they have erected around their souls and let this in. This message can sa...

    قرأت الكتاب بالعربية منذ حوالي عامين باسم الاب الغني و الاب الفقير يحكي مؤلف الكتاب ان من قام بتربيتة إضافة إلي والده هو والد أحد أصدقائة و الذي يتمتع بفكر مختلف تماما عن الفكر المحافظ لوالده الكتاب هو توضيح لانك إذا اردت ان تصبح غنيا فعليك ان تفكر ...

    This book has a picture of the author on the cover. I should’ve considered myself warned. But here’s the thing - I’m 28 years old, married with no kids, spent the better part of the last 10 years at uni and I work full time. I have spent my entire life studiously avoiding economics, finance, accounting and all associated disciplines, instead always choosing the history/politics/social sciences path, and then studying law. As a result, I hav...

    I've been wanting to read this for a couple of years. After some recent events in my life I wanted to understand the financial thinking of people who were raised wealthy and those who were not. The first chapter was great. The storytelling was simple and informative. It made so much sense to me and I related to it. Then I started Lesson Two: Why Teach Financial Literacy. It was this chapter that I realized that homeboy Kiyosaki is quite pompous. ...

    This is a GREAT book! I can definitely say it changed my life and they way I look at money and finances. For example, my husband and I bought investment properties after I had him read it as well. It is very easy and interesting to read. READ IT! READ IT! READ IT!Here is one of my favorite lines from it, approximately quoted: "I have never met a rich man who hasn't lost a lot of money, but I have met a lot of poor men who have never lost a dime."...

    The life changing book that has been a personal finance best seller for over a decade written by author Robert T. Kiyosaki. This little book has changed the lives of many people and their perspective on money, who are in misery, not knowing how to make ends meet due to lack of financial education. The contents of this book, tells the story of a young man, who is the author himself, being brought up by his natural father the conventional way of ge...

    "مايعلمه الأثرياء و لا يعلّمه الفقراء و أفراد الطبقة الوسطى لأبنائهم عن المال! "هذهِ العبارة في غلاف الكتاب زادت فضولي لقراءة الكتاب و بالصدفة اكتشفته في مكتبتي ، الكتاب يتحدث عن الثراء و عالم المال بأسلوب قصصي محبب ويتحدث فيه المؤلف عن تجربته وعن ...

    Sorry, but this book is a bunch of mumbo-jumbo BS.The concepts in this book, to me, are common sense and there are no concrete applications to his ideas. Yes, the poor get poorer while the rich get richer, there's a ground-breaking idea! Yes, most people don't know how to manage their money, we know, so how about telling us how?The majority of the book is Kiyosaki wanking it, telling us stories about his life (which I don't even think are true).I...

    "And I will say to my soul, 'Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry.'" But God said to him, "You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?"That parable popped into my mind when I read this book. This book is about "what the rich teach their kids about money that the poor and middle class do not." It's not so much a manual on how to ge...

    عاش الكاتب تحت كنف أبوين، وكلا الأبوين ناجح في حياته ومتفوق، الا أن طريقة التفكير تختلف، فرغم أن الأب الأول أكثر تعليماً الا أنه -وحسب رأي الكاتب- يفكر بطريقة مختلفة عن الطريقة التي يجب أن يفكر بها الأغنياء والأثرياء، وهو الأمر الذي قام به الأب الث...

    O dar paskaitę šitą knygą sužinosit, kad jei jūsų tėtis nesimaudo piniguose, tai jis lochas ir šiaip iš esmės niekam tikęs žmogus. Ties šia vieta skaitymas ir baigėsi. Šūdas, ne knyga. Jei labai neturit ką veikt, geriau jau tada paskaitykit Coelho. Arba pažiūrėkit, kaip auga žolė. Arba kaip džiūna dažai - vis naudingiau bus.

    There were things that I liked and things that I disliked about this book.Dislikes:*Author makes exaggerations, blanket statements, and assumptions and then presents them as facts. (i.e. He states that Americans pay 50% in income taxes. Not many Americans are in this tax bracket, certainly not the person that would be reading this book!) *Author doesn't understand economics, politics and law well. For instance he states that "Our staggering natio...

    I thought this book was great! Along with being a very pleasant read it had many valuable financial lessons to teach us. I’ll quickly go through some of the very important points.We really don’t get taught anything about financial management in school. I’m shocked at how many of my friends know nothing about how their credit card works, let alone how to use simple accounting to correctly assess their financial position. We need to have fina...

    My father handed me this book two nights ago, and said something to the effect of "interesting read--not very informative, but not bad".After reading 36 out of 195 pages, I've already gotten a grasp of the overall message (make your money work for you). I've also become bored with it. As a future purveyor of doctorate-level counseling/psychological services (fingers crossed, here), reading the dribble that pop-psychologists, self-made millionaire...

    What struck me most among the different advices in this book is “spend only on things that will generate income for you” and it was in that part where the author describes the house of his Poor Dad – the tattered door mat, the creaking floor panels, etc. After reading the book, I thought it would be nice to do that but it is easier said than done. For example, when my daughter hinted that she would like to have PS2 when she was still young ...

    Interpretation: 2-stars is more like "meh". This book has been repeatedly referenced by authors I respect, and the curiosity got the better of me. Clearly. Because I read the whole book, thinking there must be something salvageable somewhere. However, I finished it disappointed. The author's greatest weakness is not that he doesn't understand money. He does well. Rather, he gets on the cusp of cracking a code for his readers...and then breaks int...

    This book shares the same fundamental problem that plagues most business how-to's (like The E-Myth): terrible, corny writing. You would think smart, successful people like Kiyosaki and E-Myth's Michael Gerber would be able to retain a decent ghost writer, but you'd be wrong. As for the content, there are a few nuggets of wisdom here but the major revalations and practical guidance that the word of mouth for Rich Dad promised just never materializ...
