4.0 out of 5 stars It is not meant to be a magic pill to get you rich overnight, 15 July 2007
This review is from: Rich Dad's Guide to Investing: What the Rich Invest in That the Poor Do Not! (Paperback)
I have some sympathy with some of the poor reviews for this book, but i still award this 4 stars.

Yes, this is not a book that will make you a million overnight: There are no instant action points that will automatically put you on the fast track...and the comment that the first million dollars are the hardest to make is rather gauling to read if you're currently skint.

However, what this book does do is give you a long-term philosphy to investment and running your business. From this 30,000 feet view, it is very handy framework to have in your mind. i personally found this useful as it plans out the mid-game of a person's business/investment career (with a million already in the bag). This, i strongly believe, is useful to know even if you are at the beginning of your career as it's important to have a map of where you are going. As rich dad says, u gotta have a plan....

Now, I suggest my fellow reviewers below did not pick up that nuance and were frustrated that there was no magic pill that could make them rich overnight. I share their frustration - it's hard to overcome that urge to find the secret that will get you rich overnight and its always disappointing when u don't find it......but that is the heart ruling the head....the level-headed person should constantly remind themselves that this business game is a marathon and not a sprint and this book will help with some (but by no means all) of the bigger waypoints on the journey

In short, this is a book for understanding the big picture of investment and business strategies. If u want a get rich quick book, then I'm afraid you will be disappointed....
