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.
