Review of Rich Dad Poor Dad Book by Robert Kiyosaki

This is the first book in the Rich Dad series which stayed the longest at number one on the New York Times.

Robert had two dads; one was his biological dad (poor dad) and the other his best friend’s dad (rich dad). Though he loved them both but their teachings of money often contradict each other. Eventually he followed rich dad’s advice that led him to financial freedom.

Robert explains what parents tell or teach their children are very important. The parents of poor and middle class always tell their children to “Work hard and get good grades so that you can get a secure job with great benefits”. The rich parents on the other hand will teach their children to increase their financial intelligence as they know that the education system does not teach them about money but instead teach them to be employees.

Robert also defined Asset as simply money put into your pocket and Liability as money taken out of your pocket. He challenged the fact that our house which many people thought of is an asset is actually a liability. Another fact that Robert discussed was that you can never get rich even if you have a very high salary if you are going to accumulate more liabilities that generates more expenses. With higher salary people go out and get a bigger house or car and live extravagantly beyond their means sinking into greater debt.

As this book is written with an American context, I found that many of the ideas and examples narrated by Robert can be adapted and applied in other countries. Robert also said it in his free audio downloadable that the fundamental operations of the rich in different countries are the same. I have applied some of his techniques, as I am not American, and have experienced some success thus far. This book is a must read for people who wants to have some basic concepts of finance. Robert’s very casual style of writing makes this an easy and enjoyable read which prepares you to absorb more complicated concepts in his next book Rich Dad’s Cash Flow Quadrant. Get it now!
