Not as good as the first one...,
This review is from: Rich Dad's Guide to Investing: What the Rich Invest in That the Poor Do Not! (Paperback)
In my opinion, the first book is brilliant and I cannot recommend it enough to anyone who wants to be rich or at least understand more about the differences between the rich, middle class and the poor.
So, having bypassed Rich Dad 2 for the moment, I was very much looking forward to seeing what Robert and his rich dad had to say about investing. The answer is, quite a lot actually, and much of it is very interesting and insightful and I have definitely learned a few things I didn't know, and a lot of things that would not have occured to me otherwise. So the book is definitely worth a read for these pearls of wisdom.
The problem is, however, that Robert's writing style is not quite up to the same standard as it was in the first book and it seems a bit rushed, with frequent spelling mistakes and terrible grammar throughout. Also, it does become a bit tedious in places and it is horribly repetitive (almost every sentence in the book begins "According to my rich dad", or "my rich dad always said"). The plugs for his board game and his other books are about as suble as a brick, and you can certainly see the irony of an author who gets rich by writing a load of books about getting rich.
Despite its failings, its still worth a look and it is a valuable read for anyone who is starting out on their own journey towards being rich.
