Rich Dad Poor Dad

Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki Book Summary

In Rich Dad Poor Dad, the #1 Personal Finance book of all time, Robert Kiyosaki shares the story of his two dad: his real father, whom he calls his ‘poor dad,’ and the father of his best friend, the man who became his mentor and his ‘rich dad.’ One man was well educated and an employee all his life, the other’s education was “street smarts” over traditional classroom education and he took the path of entrepreneurship…a road that led him to become one of the wealthiest men in Hawaii. Robert’s poor dad struggled financially all his life, and these two dads—these very different points of view of money, investing, and employment—shaped Robert’s thinking about money.

Robert has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people, around the world, think about money and investing and he has become a global advocate for financial education and the path to financial freedom. Rich Dad Poor Dad (and the Rich Dad series it spawned) has sold over 36 million copies in English and translated editions around the world.

Rich Dad Poor Dad will…
• explode the myth that you need to earn a high income to become rich
• challenge the belief that your house is an asset
• show parents why they can’t rely on the school system to teach their kids
about money
• define, once and for all, an asset and a liability
• explain the difference between good debt and bad debt
• teach you to see the world of money from different perspectives
• discuss the shift in mindset that can put you on the road to financial freedom

This book taught me a lot about finance. I wanted for myself to be more successful I’m 13 and I wanted to start early. This was the perfect book

Great ideas for someone trying to expand their financial knowledge. It’s not a road map by any means but will give you the ideas and motive to start in the right direction.

This book is great if you’ve never even thought about your personal finances before, but otherwise the book is more motivational than it is a how-to guide.

Great read

Title says it all. There’s plenty about this book that’s worth the read. It makes you think critically about your relationship with money, and it’s a must read for any amateur entrepreneur. However, the book reaches a point where the author repeats himself without offering any further insight or conclusions. Toward the end it felt like he was looking to meet a word count.

One time read !!!!


Worth it every word from this book. Make you start thinking in another level about money .

An easy read which teaches the nascent investor to understand the value of financial intelligence and how it can unlock your financial freedom.

A rich man’s perspective vs a poor man’s perspective. Where does your perspective lie? Great book that contributes to financial literacy and learning self awareness in regards to finance.

Easy read

This book changed the lives of both me and my father. The language is kept simple, for those worried about the confusing nature of financial literacy. I could not be more grateful for the lessons that I’ve learned in this book and, as a 24-year old black male, I cannot wait to apply all of these steps in my life. Looking forward to reading more of Kiyosaki’s work.

A great book I completely recommend

This book should be a must read in any financial institution! The information and perspectives are clearly given and easily understood. If you want to start looking in the right direction for guidance start here

Rich dad knows his stuff!

This book educated me on how the elite get money and keep money, make the money work for you !

After quite some time with this book, I must say that Robert is an amazing author! I have been told many of times to read this book. I am pleased to say that this book is worth the hype.

Fantastic insight how to view money,time and education

I think everyone should read this book

It’s worthwhile to spend some money learning about your mindset and this book will make you aware of the mindset that was imprinted on you by poor dads in your life. Take advantage of the the authors knowledge and invest in yourself!!

Awesome book, main lesson i learned this book is to “pay myself first”

This guy deserves more credit when it comes to causing the 2008 housing bubble.

If you’re not comfortable in the way you’re living right now,this book is right for you!

Good book thankful for this kind of information for this price

Very grateful to have come across this book, it was very educational and will be a big part of my life going forward.

I recently committed to reading and investing and this has been my first book. I’m proud of myself as this book has given me a new perspective on a lot of things.

Buy the book

Great read !

I read this book to learn how to create passive income and create wealth. The author spent most of the time stressing the importance of “money making money” or “making money work for you”, but teaching you very little on how to do so, besides stating a few examples on how he was able to find real estate properties, but again, teaching you nothing about how to invest in real estate. I learned only a few key important lessons, but not much. The book doesn’t teach any strategies or formulas or anything that’s actionable. It’s mostly focused on mindset, which if I didn’t have, I wasn’t going to find this book in the first place. Towards the end it tells you to develop your financial intelligence by ways such as reading books, I find that to be a little ironic.

So far the book isn’t bad, actually a good read. Although I don’t have the full book, even though I spent the money on it? I’m very confused and would either like my money back or the full book. Thank you!

This book was entirely too short. I am not sure if this was the preview or what but I’m very disappointed. I thought I purchased the original. However what I did read was interesting and gives a new outlook on life. Looking forward to finding the real book! And full book!

Overall great read. For people who want to get out of the everyday rat race. Highly recommend

We’ve been taught to wake up and go to work at a 9-5. Read this book and get out of traffic!

Idk if its just me or what but I paid for the book and It gave me 26 pages what am I doing wrong?

Hands down the best book ever!!!

“The key to becoming wealthy is the ability to convert earned income into passive income or portfolio income as quickly as possible.” So many gems in this book. You should definitely add this to your library if you haven’t already. Thanks Rob.

Fantastic read! Really changes the way you look at time and money!

This books is a thought process changer. There is so much about money making that people do not know and fuel our greed/desire in the right way would drive us to become a millionaire.

Rich Dad Poor Dad is a book that can be read over and over again and still find useful relevant information. 100% Love this book. Maybe someday I’ll get a signed copy.

I was told by one of my squad members to read this book while I was deployed and didn’t pay much attention to it. I realize I was wrong to not have read it because it has opened my eyes. Great read especially coming back from a deployment.

Great book

It’s a really great book I love it!

I read this book 16 years ago and I reread it recently. It is still applicable to today. This financial information was not taught to me by my family or in school. I will pass this knowledge on to others. I’m extremely thankful Mr. Kiyosaki. Best of luck to all of you.

El mejor libro. Lo recomiendo! Bastante información de finanzas inteligentes.

I love it definitely will read think and grow rich now

Such a great read and I have been listening to Mr. Kiyosaki for years and was completely blown away by this great read.

Well written and easy to understand

Engaging and very honest. A lot of what Robert says is that you can’t achieve a lot if you don’t take action. Feed your mind with financial literature, take steps into working on it, and you will eventually get better, improve and learn how to take risks with confidence, wealth will follow.

Great book! I have learn a lot just from reading it. Now I’m going to apply the knowledge.

Very relatable and easy to follow for 1st time investors. Will look into the rest of the authors series

Very good book I learned a lot.

Absolutely loved this book great opening to financial literacy and explains what it takes to stay with it. Awesome for anyone new to the game

As a 20 year old just starting my first job this book was an eye opener for me, I’m excited to begin investing money and developing my financial intelligence.

First time reading this book and I’m amazed at all the “oohs and ah” moments I had while reading this book. It made me realized a lot about money and financial freedom. I can’t wait to read Robert’s guide to investing book!

I wish I had this as an assignment. Loved lord of the flies, but would have made more of life from this..

I love this book. It’s a book I can recommend to anyone trying to be financially free.

This is an amazing book if you wanna get a different perspective of how money works and put it into life actions. .

I learned a lot from this book things that I don’t know before and wasn’t taught in schools. I’ll definitely read his other books. Everyone who wants to get rich or achieve financial and time freedom should read this.

I readthis book for the first time when i was 15 and thought i understood but i didnt, when i read it again when i was 30, then i had the capacity to understand what was said there, looks like this book is for about 20 years old ppl when they have mental capacity to understand things

This book has shifted my future! My path is my goal will stay with me to the end of time and I can already see sharing this again and again! I’m not sure there will ever be enough gratitude for this and the beautiful people who recommended it! It comes at a time where I’m starting a large company and now know I will turn it into an asset and the funds I get will be assets paying for assets and life! So excited!

Very encouraging and motivating start..half way through the book, I find it to be less interesting. Guy talks about getting out of debt, then goes right into buying and investing in properties by dropping 30-40grands?

This book change all my financial vision from now on will all go right !!

Will definitely read again as i wasn’t very consistent due to single dad stuff. Great read though.

Wise man

Real and thought provoking. The self-reflective Rich Dad Poor Dad made me think about income, investments, taxes, career pathways, and more. A good read for anyone looking to improve their financial literacy.

This has opened my eyes to financial habbits! Amazing book!

Personally I found this to be a very inspiring book. It’s very eye opening in just how easy he makes it sound to become rich. Worth the read, even if you think you’re “too old” to start.

These guy gives bad advice. I guess that’s why he bankrupted now. Buy the Barefoot investor instead.

Hi I’m 14 and I read this book in lockdown and it totally changed my perspective on the world and how it’s heading today. Up until then I didn’t know how money worked and I thought slaving away at a job for most of my life would make me rich. Thankfully I read this book before people like Andrew Tate got to me first. I’m now trying to educate myself and expand my financial intelligence. Glad I read this book and totally recommend!

That book is a must read for a beginner or a young person to at least understand the Philosophy of financial freedom, investing, acquiring assets instead of liabilities. Totally recommend!

Great very easy to read and provides real life examples throughout the book.

Every story, every lesson and every example in this book was compelling and has kickstarted my desire to make money work for me. I have no children currently but I will be taking the rich dad approach when the time comes after being raised by a poor dad myself who constantly pushed me to get educated and work hard for a living. Thankfully I have found this book at the age of 28 and not 58 and have plenty of time to change my approach to money!

I was told about this book nearly 15 years ago by a very successful friend. I only took the time now to read and understand how it changed his life. Hopefully it can change yours too. Highly recommend it if you want to avoid the trap of the rat race.

Robert Kiyosaki has completely changed my concept on my finance strategies!

This book is so great for advice for the future wether your young or old and gives you great advice. I would recommend reading it to your kids. 10/10! Great book, thanks 🙂

I love the books I read , but I wish we could read books like this at school. Someone, please,tell the teachers at my school to get like 3 of this book , ‘cause I love it.Lot better than the books I read at school!😀

Did change my perspective entirely, great book!

Great book, helped me focus on my long term goals

A remarkable book to read with lots of great advice to apply to your financial future. This has woken up my financial genius!

Really great book. Wish I had read it years ago. Brilliant financial education. They should make you read this in school instead of all the usual rubbish which added very little value to people’s lives. If your thinking of buying it just do it. It’s a very worthwhile investment.

Very relatable and easy to follow for 1st time investors. Will look into the rest of the authors series

This book is truly life changing. I'm motivated to change how I've been taught to think about money. And the main goal for me is financial literacy/freedom, by any means necessary. Thanks Robert for your encouraging words and education. I will purchase other books in this series to continue elevating my mind and time.

This book has changed my views on how we live and function as human beings. Everything is about perspective and how you choose to perceive the information you’re given. “I can’t afford it” think “how can I afford it?”. If you’re someone looking for motivation and information to push you forward in becoming financially free, read this book. I will be reading all the books this author has made and will continue my journey of becoming financially free..aka RICH. I will now work hard to have money work hard for ME, not the other way around. I will get out of the rat race.

Very insightful book.

This book was so amazing because it shows us how we can look at money in a different way. It also helped me become more successful with day trading forex because it changed my perspective on the way I look at money. If you are doing anything related to money, you need to read this book.

Enjoyed my first time reading , will read again . Lots of information, yet reads fairly easy

Great book! Gives different prespectives. Easy read

Thank you.

Great book!

Very knowledgeable

Great book! The knowledge I gained from this book will hopefully be passed down to my kids through teaching them about generational wealth.

This book is amazing! It really has opened my mind and changed my entire thought process when it comes to money! Change your perspective!

Great book glad I read it

It is by far one of my best reads. Robert could not of been more honest and open about his life, life itself and financial literacy.

Worth it

I loved the free game, he really talks about mentality and it’s very motivating. I feel he didn’t explain as much as I thought he would, but he explains that he won’t unless you buy this book and that book, true salesman. I appreciate the book for it did motivate me and teach me financial literacy is the key to wealth and success, no matter how much money your family has held before you.

But nothing will work unless you put it into action.

Very beginner friendly and for all ages. Perfect book for readers trying to dip their feet into becoming financially literate.

This book is greatly need to understand or have a beginner mindset of financial literacy. Great exposure to how money work

This book gave me so much incite on how to work with my income and work towards building my wealth.especially coming from a immigrant family this hit home but now feel confident that I can attack my goals with maximum effort.

Very disappointed in this book. I’ve heard about it for years and finally checked it out. I don’t understand the hype.

I always thought I had a pretty great assesment on what it would take for me to become financially infependent, but after reading this book I had to get over my arrogance, just as the book suggests, and be willing to look at other steps and options.

Great book and was suggested by a longtime friend. Thank you Brice. I think that anyone looking for a start to financial intelligence would benefit from this book. As I am a writer myself a few things stick out to me about his style. One is it is unique however the grammar needs some work 😂. But aren’t we all trying to learn? God Bless Robert and I will be reading your next book.

There was a few things I already knew from the research I had done, but there was a large wealth of knowledge that bridged the gap that I didn’t know. I am still ignorant to what I now know is an endless sea of information that I will only ever get to swim in a very small portion of. I’m glad I got to read this book and look forward to the next.

Worth the money and time!

In the past, I did not like to think about money or investment, and I believed that I was not interested in money. It’s a form of laziness as pointed out by the author. Financial intelligence might be as important as EQ and IQ, is something we need to develop through learning.

This book doesn’t so much teach you the actual ways to gain wealth but teaches you the mindset needed to find ways to make wealth. It is a very easy read and well worth it.

Starts out kinda slow. But it gets really interesting and helpful after chapter 4 or 5.

Acquired Great knowledge on money making. The book mainly focused on passive income through Real-estate .

Thanks to this book i lorned what the rat race is all about and it showed me what i been doing wrong i have a middle class income and i can’t affored vacaciones for me and my family now i know the reasons why thank you so much “rich dad poor dad” i will always be greatfull and I’m looking forward to reading this book again when I’ve atquire some assets.

i would recommend this book to everyone. i can’t wait to put it to acton and change my financial future

One of the best investments I have ever made for myself. A must read!

Great book, really gets you thinking about your financial mindset and how you can improve personally.

I came into this book with an open mind. I’m a college graduate looking for financial advice in a turbulent time. He starts with some good points - A lot of people let money and fears control their actions. It’s important to account for assets (things that passively earn money) and liabilities (things that lose money/depreciate). It’s all downhill from there. He warns that people get trapped in The Rat Race yet proposes readers get into real estate, business ownership, and the stock market. Really? Not only are those unstable but they are literally some of the greatest rat races on earth. I feel $8 poorer financially and 9 circles of h*** poorer spiritually having read this book. Avoid at all costs.

Never read a book so fast!

I just figured out my life and where I’m headed

Love this book! Had only $50 under my name and after reading this book, I am a millionaire.

I really enjoyed his book on how to create the idea of that passive income and other methods to not just get rich but really obtain wealth.

Pick up a book. Start somewhere. If you care about your financial future you’ll read this book. I played Cashflow with my Dad as a child! I had never read this until now (I’m 28). Happy I did.

This is what every kid should read, in every classroom in every town. This type of education is priceless. Well worth the read.

Great book open my mind in things I thought I knew already.

As a young adult learning the experiences of investing, saving and spending it’s a great book to get your feet wet into the financial aspects of the world!

If you’re debating in spending the lousy couple of dollars then this book will never make you debate that same circumstance again.

honestly this should be a required read in every school’s curriculum. worth

I love the stories and straight to the point steps listed in this book.

Through listening from the audiobook, Robert emphasized so much on financial literacy that my financial knowledge interest has truly peaked. My thought process on money has shined a light in an area of my thinking I left dark and hidden away for so long. My true training in investing really started the day I bought this audiobook. Took me 7 days to finish and I’ll continue to have this on repeat!

Great read!

Best book I’ve ever read. Started reading and felt like a whole different person after. This book will change the way you view life forever!

Awesome book!!!! Definitely made me look at things differently.

Good book to read. It shows the basics to understand how the money works
