Rich Dad Poor Dad, the number one Personal Finance book of all time, tells the story of Robert Kiyosaki….
Personal finance creator 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, whilst respectable, were never moderately 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 once able to retire at 47. Rich Dad Poor Dad, written with consultant and CPA Sharon L. Lechter, lays out his the philosophy at the back of his relationship with money. Despite the fact that Kiyosaki can take a frustratingly long time to make his points, his book is nonetheless a compelling advocate for the kind of “financial literacy” that’s never taught in schools. Based on the principle that income-generating assets all the time provide healthier bottom-line results than even the best of traditional jobs, it explains how the former might be acquired so that the latter eventually can also be shed. —Howard Rothman, Amazon.com
