Rich Dad Poor Dad 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

  • Financial Freedom

    By Se7enkarats
    I love this book. It has really given me insight on the rights and wrongs on what to do with my money. Feeding my financial genius I feel more confident going forward. Can't wait to read more from this author. A must read!
  • Repetitive garbage!

    By DaveG12345671223
    Don’t waste your time or your money on this repetitive drivel.
  • What next?

    By Luke's friend
    I'm a 16 year old junior in highschool. I saw Tai Lopez on YouTube and, disregarding all of the claims of scamming surrounding him, I followed his general message which I interpreted as self-improvement through self-education. I decided I would start reading books teaching finance skills because I will be financially free. I looked up good books involving this and Rich Dad Poor Dad caught my eye. I angered a lot of my teachers because I had my phone out when really I was just reading this book. Being full of highlighted and underlined passages, I feel I will consult this many times in the future. Right now, I'm trying to find the next book to read.

  • This man is just another seminar scam artist

    By Tekkub
    Nothing of substance in this book, it’s just a thinly veiled attempt to sell you into some seminar. They partnered with Amway, if that tells you anything. Don’t give this scammer your money.
  • Don’t become part of the Rat Race
