3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting BUT be cautious�, 10 Dec 2003
This review is from: Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money (Paperback)
When I found this book and read some of the reviews I thought WOW!!! But after reading it and doing some research on the internet I found that this writer (Kiyosaki) has been a bit of a shady character...do your own research via google or any other good search site.
The book has some fundamental truths about finance and the idea of becoming financially literate should be on every ones list. But there is no easy or quick way to become rich. When reading the book take a big pinch of salt as to the historical/factual truths he presents. It has some common sense ideas mixed in with conflicting fanciful tails of money making methods. In fact, the book is a bit mixed up around!
The book contains an Interesting bunch of ideas and thoughts, it may get your brain thinking about money, investment and assets but beyond that you gain nothing solid.
Anyway, read it if you wish but do your research and remember nothing is easy about making money...

I was about to post a similar 3* review, this book is good with solid ideas, but mostly a motivational/positive thinking book. That said, I wouldn't buy anything else with Kyiosaki's name on it. Most of his other stuff is about trying to upsell you even more and more of his books, games, seminars etc.

Get this, read it, and then move on to something with more substantial advice regarding whichever field you're interested in be it stock trading or, for example in real estate - 'Investing in Real Estate' by Gary Eldred and for small businesses '101 Small Business Ideas for Under 5000$' by Corey Sandler.

I could not agree more with this review. For me, the book re-framed one or two important ideas about money in a helpful way but it is also repetitive and quite patronising, I thought. There are many other books about money and personal finance I would read before this one.
