This book is an investment in itself.
on 6 June 2001
Kiyosaki is no writer. His style is repetitive, simple and to the point. Which is why i recommend this book. For the creation of wealth often requires exactly this kind of approach. If spiritually enlightening messages are what you're seeking, try Dostoyevskiy's Karamazov Brothers. If you're interested in becoming wealthy - not secure, or financially independent, but RICH (he has a chapter on becoming a billionaire) - then Rich Dad's Guide To Investing makes for a thoroughly refreshing read.
The author uses a wide selection of diagrams and stories to highlght his points, which I found useful in most cases. He also offers some simple yet invaluable guidelines on building a business and becoming an investor in the true sense of the word.
However, the one thing missing is a 'reality check', since Kiyosaki, in my view, should have devoted more time on encouraging people to develop specific core competencies, strengths that individuals can "bring to the table", rather than solely emphasising the importance of finanical literacy (hence 4 stars).
