“Rich Dad Poor Dad” is the first book I have read about money. I have enjoyed reading it as the content is delivered in a clear, simple and coherent manner. The author, Robert Kiyosaki, wrote about the various financial tools that are available. It gives me a general idea of the different financial tools that are available. However, I feel that the book is not detailed enough. It is not recommended to those who want a more comprehensive read about the various money making tools that are available. Nonetheless, this book is a good summary of the various financial tools. I also like the way the author differentiate between assets and liabilities.
Although this book claims to teach readers about money, I feel that this book inspires me more than it teaches me about money. Robert Kiyosaki emphasizes on the importance of getting out of the rat race. I am totally convinced by him that workers are being exploited by employers and governments. This makes me determined to find ways to gain financial freedom and let money work for me. It really inspires me to avoid the convention way of working for employers.
This book also highlights the importance of gaining financial knowledge in order to make money work for you. It emphasizes on the importance of financial education. The author does not claim that Rich Dad, Poor Dad teach readers to get rich instantly. After reading this book, I am inspired to find out more information about the various financial tools that are available.
I do not like the way the author tries to promote his other books and products like “CASHFLOW” in between pages. Such promotions make reading the book less enjoyable.
I am glad that I read “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert T. Kiyosaki. It changes my perspectives on how money should be made and inspires me to learn more about money, business, accounting, investing, business laws and financial tools.
