by Robert T. Kiyosaki (Author)
4.7 out of 5 stars
Reviewed in the United States on March 17, 2018
I read this book about 11 years ago at 27 years old , had no money, I followed the advice in this book and now have 15 rental properties paid off free and clear, my assets more than cover all my expenses. I just bought this book again, I'm in the middle of reading it again now 11 years later and can't put it down. I hate reading btw. I plan on reading this book at least three more times over the next 20 years so I can keep all info fresh in my mind. People always ask me about success. I tell them to read this book...whats crazy is that they don't read it. You can lead a horse to water but can't make it drink. The book changed my life and it will change yours. Do you want change or do you just want to talk and think about change? There is a big difference , do it.

One of the best financial advice books I have ever read. I highly recommend anyone who is looking to work towards financial freedom to read this book. I enjoyed the story line and am taking several principles of the book seriously as I re-evaluate my finances. I'll list several of my key takeaways from the book below:
- Money is one form of power, but what is more powerful is financial education
- The poor and the middle class work for money. The rich have money work for them.
- Learn to use your emotions to think, not think by your emotions.
- Assets put money in your pocket. Liabilities take money out of your pocket.
- Don't bury your failures. Recognize them and learn from them.
- Be charitable and give. You can give of your time, knowledge, and money. Give and you shall receive.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book and know I will be referring many people in my life to read it.

A must - I would read this over and over again
Reviewed in the United States on November 15, 2019
Throwing in the fact that I am a millenial, my parents haven't shared any financial tips when I was growing up. I didn't understand the importance of being financially secure nor did I understand the importance of credit scores. I grew up knowing that working a 9 to 5 job and getting 401K was the "safe" thing to do. Fast forward - I am now 34 years old with three kids and still working pay check to pay check, trying to figure out how to make it big in the world and make my money work for me (as Robert Kiyosaki says). After reading this book, I've learned a lot. It's possible to push aside fear and hesitation and do things that not only takes me out of my comfort zone but also takes me out of my financial slump.
I actually borrowed a copy from my local library and couldn't put this book down. It's from a personal perspective and I admire that. It's not fake and he basically lays out in the book how he accomplished it. It inspires me to learn more about growing financially and becoming more financially educated. After reading the book, I had to purchase it to add to my collection.

THE first book you should ever read.
Reviewed in the United States on February 23, 2020
Favorite book of all time. This is actually my second copy. It’s a must read for anyone who wants to recalibrate their mind about money, life, and success. Actually this copy is for my wife who recently got into the mindset of financial success. I told her I have a must read book for her, this was it! I wish this book was a high school requirement, I truly feel that strongly about it’s message, learnings the importance of proper spending, debt, savings, and wealth. And it’s written in a very entertaining and easy to read story telling style, not dry financial talk that turns many people away from these type of books.

How I got a Jeep using only one technique!
Reviewed in the United States on June 19, 2020
I had originally purchased this book in 1997. I needed to replace my 10-year-old Jeep, with a brand new 2020 Jeep. I went to the bank and got an unsecured loan. Instead of purchasing the Jeep, I purchased a house instead that needed a lot of work. I renovated the house and got a mortgage for the same amount I purchased and renovated it for, and paid back the unsecured loan that was at a much higher interest rate. Then I turned around and rented the house. The rent payments cover my monthly jeep payments and the renter is purchasing the house next year which after expenses will pay off my loan on the jeep! I have used several techniques in this book which has very much worked for me! Before the book, the bank wanted to know what I had for collateral. Now when I go to a Bank they ask me how much can we loan you!

Buy this book. That’s all I can really say. It has changed my entire perception of money and work. It has taught me the true power of the mind. I wish I had read it sooner. It’s an easy read and the information inside is priceless. You have to have an open mind and be willing to listen and take Robert’s words and put them into action by educating yourself more. After reading this, I bought a few other books to educate myself more on accounting and other topics needed to become more financially literate. I love this book and I will be sharing it with all my friends and family. Definitely worth the time and money.
Fuel for the fire, kickstart to adventure.

Firstly, I do not claim to be an expert in book review and really, I have not read too many books in my time but for those who seek insight from reviewers, I hope this helps in your decision to buy this book or any wonders you may have about it :)
To follow up the completed read-through of 'Rich Dad Poor Dad', I thought to write a summary of it.
Here we dive into the experience of Robert Kiyosaki and his rise to wealth and financial greatness. Through the course of the book Robert never fails to mention the importance of financial literacy and how it must be at the forefront of one's journey when searching for great rich's, wealth and success. When financial freedom can be acquired, you must first know what happens in the money system and how to operate through it. Where to look and open your mind to change. How to see opportunity and to not be afraid when it comes knocking.
Robert describes the differences between his real father 'poor dad' and his friend Mike's father 'rich dad'. Where poor dad push's for educational approach to life, to work hard and climb up in the company/organization. It's a safe bet and will secure your future, financially.
On the other hand, rich dad cannot stress enough the importance of money working for you and that getting out of The Rat Race is of utmost importance. He goes on to praise the philosophy of 'paying yourself first', a way of discipline in the financial realm to kick your own butt when you come up short when the debt collectors and bills pile up after you've paid yourself first, investing your money into assets as the first thing to do with the dollars that come into your hand. If you can discipline yourself to invest into your assets first and expenses later, you will sink if you do not step it up to find other ways of generating income and triumph over financial pressure. Master this and you will learn to swim.
In short, I will be coming back to this book from time to time as a reference to be my sidekick and reminder of the day I said enough is enough. I'm truly grateful to have this book in my possession as a tool for my journey into the great world of investment and success.

Easy to Read and Follow. Inspirational. Lots of great information.
Reviewed in the United States on July 2, 2021
I avoided this book ever since it came out due to all the negativity.
I shouldn't have jumped to conclusions. Now I wished I read this when it came out!
Sorry this isn't a "Get Rich Quick Scheme" yet it isn't a "Get Rich Slow Scheme Either".
If anyone can promise you riches in a short amount of time, run don't walk away, RUN!
I like the stories and examples he cites. He has an extremely good memory about his childhood.
People today don't get it, they think by getting a degree and making a lot of money will end your money woes.
It just makes it worse for most people. The more you make the more you tend to spend!
Find out what you should do in this book. I won't summarize it for you, only you can take the next step forward.
I like his explanation about taxes and Robin Hood. People blame the rich but they should blame themselves.
Taxing the rich doesn't solve anything it actually make the poor and middle class worse off. Again pls read!
This book included a bonus chapter to his sequel "CASHFLOW Quadrant".
I also recommend his other sequel "Why the Rich Are Getting Richer".

Refreshingly informative; I suggest you read it with a pen
Reviewed in the United States on July 30, 2020
I like Kiyosaki because he realizes what a scandalous rip-off fiat currency is, and understands how the Federal Reserve has scammed hard-working Americans for over a hundred years. (Please see G. Edward Griffin's 1994 masterpiece, "The Creature from Jekyll Island," which was praised by Robert.) Runaway inflation, here we go.
Anyway, since I knew that, I wanted to read this work, a book that was sitting around my parents' house in 2000, even though I never read it. I wish I had. He is a big believer in portfolio and more importantly, passive income, and shows precisely how it works. I treated this text like a workbook, taking notes and underlining. (Echoing Clason's parables, he urges us to pay ourselves first. Simple, but profound.)
This guy is not a swindler, he knows what he talking about. When he is hated so much by academia and the financial elite, you know it must be something worth reading. I highly recommend this inspiring and informative work. He has encouraged me to take action, and for that I am grateful. For a few dollars, I think this is worth it in order to change your worldview about money. In such a derivative, politically-correct society, I get a kick out of hearing from a contrarian.
Am I going to buy all of his other books and games and go to seminars? No. But I am glad I read this wonderful textbook. Thanks, Robert.

This book literally changed my life and my mindset regarding money, taxes, and entrepreneurship. I wish I had known about this book in high school! I would’ve saved myself from so much student loan debt. This book is highly recommended, so much so that I would literally pay my friends and family to read this book so they could avoid all the money pitfalls we all experience. Please read this and then follow up with his book the cash flow quadrant! What I love about rich dad poor dad is that it’s very clear what Robert is teaching the reader. He’s getting straight to the point without all that excess jargon some authors choose to use! Please read this book and encourage and teenagers/early twenties folks to read it so they start their life out without so much debt!

If you haven't read this book yet, DO IT NOW!

This is one of those books that most people pass up in the Goodwill book section that can actually change your life forever.
This book is the seed that will plant a new way of looking at money for the REST of your life.
Best part? With the amount of books under his company's belt, this education is truly cradle to grave on the subject. If you have the will, he provides the way.
But this book is the first step in the journey, and it's the most necessary step; the reeducation of the working class on the subject of money.
Avoid reading this at your own expense. Literally. You'll pay dearly not to read this book and start changing your financial behavior.
I read this book a few years back... and it gave me my new lease on life. Thank you RK! I'm a convert.

One of the best finance books ever
Reviewed in the United States on June 5, 2020
This book is legendary.
It's been out for years and is still the top book in finance.
I loved every page reading it. It is extremely valuable for anyone who wants to get out of the 9-5 life with advice and knowledge to change your life.
I was recommended this book when I was about 17 and didn't take the time to read it. A few years later I finally did and wish I read It sooner when I was first recommended it.
A for sure highly recommended book!

No problem with the seller - I'm just REALLY TICKED OFF that the book is SOOOO DANG SMALL!!!!!!! When I buy a paperback book, I'm accustomed to them measuring around 9 inches high by 6 inches wide (or pretty close to that). You know, the usual size of a paperback book that your would find in "Barnes and Noble", or some other bookstore. Unfortunately, the book I received from this bookseller MEASURES ONLY 6.75 INCHES HIGH AND LESS THAN 4.25 INCHES WIDE1111 IT'S FREAKIN' TINY!!!!!! Really angry with myself for ASS-UMING that I was buying a regular-sized paperback book. I bought this as a gift, but it's SOOOO TINY that I don't even want to give it to the person. This REALLY SUCKS!!!!!!! Great book, with excellent content. Just wish it was the size of a NORMAL PAPERBACK!!!!

Spot on. I give this as a gift to all HS and college graduates.
Reviewed in the United States on July 16, 2018
I resisted buying this for years, and now I wish I'd read it 10 years ago. It's spot on. Well written, starting from his experiences as a 10 year old kid who wanted to know "how to get rich", and the unexpected things he learned. Engaging and practical. It could have saved me a lot of heartache and a terrible financial decision that has cost me greatly over the years. I've now given this as a gift to others. (Also check out the "cashflow" board game, sold separate, which has been discontinued but can still be found on amazon or ebay.)

#1 Financial Education Book Since Publication!!!
Reviewed in the United States on November 16, 2020
No matter what your education level, you can benefit from reading this clear explanation of how the American (and other country's economies) actually work. Were you told to "go to school, get good grades, go to college so you can get a good job"? Were you taught to "invest in a well-diversified portfolio of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds"? Maybe you believe you're "diversified" because you invest in ETF's, precious metal paper instruments? Yeah, you're actually not.
After reading this book, you'll have a greater understanding (and probably curiosity to learn more about) of the tax system, Wall Street, precious metals, and of course - real estate investing. It's not written to 'sell' you anything, only to educate you so that you can make better decisions.
NOTE: THE RICH DAD RADIO SHOW PODCAST/YOUTUBE VIDEOS are outstanding!
Here's to greater success!
THEY DON'T TEACH THIS IN SCHOOL
Reviewed in the United States on July 31, 2020
This book should be given as curriculum in every school in America; I guess that will never happen because then we would all be rich and not just 1-3 percent of us! I recommend that every parent give this book to their child/children as a gift; one of the best gifts they will ever receive in life. If you have worked your entire life and now are in retirement, maybe you should not read this because you will be SO MAD THAT NO ONE EVER TOLD YOU THESE THINGS! My son says that I should still read it, it's never too late, I'm not dead yet! I believe I will; I just can't let this VALUABLE INFORMATION go unread by myself.

I read this book years ago and decided to reread it and add it to my Kindle library because it is so good.
Robert tells the story of how he learned the secrets of building wealth from his best friend's dad, contrasted against his own father who struggled with money his whole life. The book is interesting because Robert uses stories and visual examples to make information easy to understand and remember. I have also played his game Cash Flow online and it's a great way to solidify the principles he teaches. They are simple principles, but it takes practice to internalize then because it's not how most people in the lower or middle classes think.
Keep an open mind while reading this book, because you're going to find out that everything you know about money, assets, and liabilities is wrong.

ABSOLUTELY... one of the BEST financial books on the Market.... No wonder its a BESTSELLER for years and years running.... This book is a gift in every aspect of the word's meaning when it comes to evaluating your finances, your mindset about money, how to earn it, how to respect it, how to make it work for you, and how to position your approach and mindset toward buying assets not liabilities.... LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this book... I cant recommend it enough... In fact I would go as far as to say it should be required reading in High School to give people an early look at what money is, how to handle it, how to earn it and how to make it work for you and not work for it.... Such and Eye-Opener... Sadly, I'm 52 and just read it for the first time...

HANDS DOWN THE BEST MONEY BOOK OUT THERE.
Reviewed in the United States on February 3, 2022
This book has alot of insights and good advice on how to get yourself out of the same ol same, " get check pay bills and repeat, that we all do. Read this book, study it and have the courage to follow the author advise with an open mind and you're on to success. If you read this with the thought of a pessimistic and criticism then you didn't learn anything and need to read it again with a different mindset. I bought this book and it has change the way I deal with money and mentality on real-estate. I recommend this book. You'll spend more at McDonald's then what you will send on this book and all the knowledge you will soak up. Use a highlighter, it will definitely help when you want to go back and brief through some talking points.
