Robert Kiyosaki, the author of the famous "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" Book, wrote some of the best financial freedom books in the world. He shared his economic situation with influential entrepreneurs like us and changed our perspective on life.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Toru Kiyosaki is an important investment guide book for starters. In an ever changing economy it is important for people to have not just academic intelligence but financial intelligence in order to be successful.
This book gives so much information that many people never learned from their parents, in school or college. This book teaches smart ways to invest and ways to make your money work for you instead of having to work for your money.
This book appeals to all types of people. Whether you be a middle aged adult in a poor financial status, a rich person who doesn’t know what to do with their money or a young teenager hoping to succeed in the brutal economy of our world, this book will help.
Robert Toru Kiyosaki gives many examples of why people fail to succeed with their financing and how people can better themselves in the long run. One of the down sides to this book are that Kiyosaki focuses only on real estate...
Since the author is big into real estate most of his examples are based on things that he has done about real estate. However, real estate is not easy to get into and many people would not enjoy doing this kind of investing because of the risk factor.
Overall it is important that everyone read some kind of book -if not this one- that relates to financing in order to have a better future.
