In Rich Dad Poor Dad, the #1 Personal Finance book of all time, Robert Kiyosaki shares the story of his two dad: his real father, whom he calls his ‘poor dad,’ and the father of his best friend, the man who became his mentor and his ‘rich dad.’ One man was well educated and an employee all his life, the other’s education was “street smarts” over traditional classroom education and he took the path of entrepreneurship…a road that led him to become one of the wealthiest men in Hawaii. Robert’s poor dad struggled financially all his life, and these two dads—these very different points of view of money, investing, and employment—shaped Robert’s thinking about money.
Robert has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people, around the world, think about money and investing and he has become a global advocate for financial education and the path to financial freedom. Rich Dad Poor Dad (and the Rich Dad series it spawned) has sold over 36 million copies in English and translated editions around the world.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Rich Dad Poor Dad will have you questioning everything you think you know about money. Robert Kiyosaki’s fuss-free guide to financial independence draws from his relationships with both his highly educated but poor father and his high-school-dropout, self-made-millionaire mentor. Kiyosaki is smart about being money-smart, using jargon-free prose to relay his message of the importance of financial education. He challenges unhelpful assumptions, like the notion that you have to earn a lot of money to have a lot.
I love this book. It has really given me insight on the rights and wrongs on what to do with my money. Feeding my financial genius I feel more confident going forward. Can't wait to read more from this author. A must read!

Before this book I can honestly say I was a financial nomad! Mr. Kiyosaki’s book will not fix your financial problems, it will fix your thought process. Read “The Poor Man’s Achilles Heel” as well, if you really change your relationship with money.
I'm a 16 year old junior in highschool. I saw Tai Lopez on YouTube and, disregarding all of the claims of scamming surrounding him, I followed his general message which I interpreted as self-improvement through self-education. I decided I would start reading books teaching finance skills because I will be financially free. I looked up good books involving this and Rich Dad Poor Dad caught my eye. I angered a lot of my teachers because I had my phone out when really I was just reading this book. Being full of highlighted and underlined passages, I feel I will consult this many times in the future. Right now, I'm trying to find the next book to read.
