Short on time? Or maybe you’ve already read the book, but need a refresh on the most important takeaways. In a quick, easy listen, you can take the main principles from Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!
Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki is a best-selling book that has become the number one personal finance book of all time. In the book, Kiyosaki seeks to describe the lessons about money that rich fathers teach their children versus the teachings of poor and middle-class families. Moreover, Kiyosaki uses personal anecdotes from his poor dad – his real father, a hardworking man who couldn’t seem to make ends meet – and his rich dad – his mentor, a middle school dropout turned millionaire – to show how people must challenge their view of money to find richness even if they don’t earn a high income. Telling the compelling stories of two fathers, Kiyosaki frames the path to financial success.
Having been translated into multiple languages and having sold over 36 million copies across the world, Rich Dad Poor Dad is a powerful book that has changed the way many people view financial freedom and financial education. This book shows a new point of view to finances that many people have not been taught. Using this information, Kiyosaki was able to retire before he turned 50. Ultimately, this book debunks several myths and suggests that everyone can have financial security if they use the knowledge outlined in this book.
