Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids about Money-That the Poor and the Middle Class Do Not!

Robert Kiyosaki

Kaz: I really do find Robert Kiyosaki’s books inspiring and extremely motivating.  I’ve read Rich Dad Poor Dad and Cashflow Quadrant (and possible another but it was so long ago that I don’t remember it!).  I think that he really does trigger something in a lot of people, a desire to get out of the ‘work for a living’ rat-race.  I think of all the people I’ve interviewed or heard talking about how they got started in investing or business or building wealth, this book comes up most frequently as one of the defining moments in people’s lives.

They are a bit funny in that they fill you with thoughts so that your mind is racing and you become really motivated to implement great change in your life but if you look closer they are a bit light on when it comes to practical implementation and actions.  Perhaps they are designed in that way, they are meant to be the catalyst for change but not necessarily the plan of action – so that’s ok – I mean any book that can inspire so many people to assess their lives and commit to change – well that has to be a good thing.

If you haven’t read this book and also Cashflow Quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki then I would say that they are a must.


  1. The rich dad books truly are amazing. Curious if anyone has read the new book “YOU HAVE A COLLEGE DEGREE, NOW WHAT?” Very good read.


    • Yeah, Rich Dad, Poor Dad seems to have been the catalyst for many an entrepreneur and property investor’s journey! I haven’t read the new one, will have to check it out. Thanks Joe!

  2. I couldn’t agree more, it really was the catalyst that got me started on my property investment journey. I have purchased the book 6 times, as I keep giving it away to my friends. Although his writing is very simple and repetitive that’s half the beauty of his message. He really makes you think about the rat race and developing a passive income stream. It should be required reading for teens. But I think you need to be in the rat race for a bit to get the greatest impact for his reading.
