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.
