    "Badly read"

    I haven't finished listening to this book yet and one of the reasons it's taking me a long time to get through is that it's read in a very monotonous tone, which makes the material feel more boring than it needs to.

    But I also have problems with the content of the book, since the author spends so much time telling us to accumulate assets instead of liabilities, but doesn't really get down to the nuts and bolts of how to do that, which is frustrating.

    "Almost....."

    This book encapsulates capitalism and for the most part whatever your philosophy, the advice is sound...at least from a 'Western' stance. Kiyosaki is clearly very passionate about the subject matter which adds an air of confidence and authority to his book. Some have criticised that the whole,'rich dad' thing is a fabrication...I would suggest that this is an irrelevance. Any successful entrepreneur will tell you that acting 'as if' is often a given. Kiyosaki can get carried away at times and make what I would say are ridiculous suggestions such as education being for mere fools......and this lets an otherwise excellent book down. At times, Kiyosaki apologises for being unfair...and then continues to be just that and there can be a two-faced element to his arguments as a consequence. Narration is always important with audiobooks and Wheeler's approach is impeccable. I'd encourage Kiyosaki to take some time out to embrace some more Eastern practices as money alone whilst important is ultimately a mere fabrication of mankind. Nevertheless a very enjoyable listen...if at times a tad trite.

    "An enjoyable,outstanding eye opener !!"
    Would you listen to Rich Dad Poor Dad again? Why?

    I will 110% be listening to this audio book again as I feel that there was too much valuable information to take in all at once, next time I will be taking notes and using them to begin educating my own children. I listened to the whole book within 24hrs as I just wanted to know more and since finishing the book I have bought 3 more of Rich Dads audio books.


    What does Tim Wheeler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Tim Wheeler was a great candidate for Rich Dads audio books as he made the listening experience more pleasurable with his tone of voice and delivery of speech. He also has the ability to make you feel as though he is actually sitting beside you and talking to you personally.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me feel a little bit angry at times as I felt like the working class are actually kept in the dark about a lot of the topics spoke about in this audio book. It also aggravated me to think that my children are now also being "Trained" at school to become only suitable for employment. I have since been proactive about changing my children's course of education and also about they're financial way of thinking. A definite must have for any loving, caring parent.


    Any additional comments?

    For any one serious about opening there mind and changing the way they see things I would highly recommend. A small price to pay for potentially life changing information!!

    Informative
    Inspiring
    Educational


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    Understanding the difference between 'classes' and assets/liabilities for me personally. I thought the whole book was good as an audio book.

    "Practical Principles with a Personable Delivery"

    This book is for you if you are starting your journey in financial education.



    The audio is of a high standard but most importantly the narrative offers a personable friendly approach.



    Although the subject matter maybe a bit dry the author and narrator have created a piece of work that will keep you engaged, entertained and enthused during your listen and weeks after.



    A great listen.



    At the very least add it to your wish list.

    "Fantastic book!! Very useful"

    The narration of the book is really fantastic, Tim Wheeler has great voice.I also like different topics that are covered around this book. It gives an idea of how we can train our children about finance and also there is a lot adults can learn and think about the financial information provided in this book. Author has not only gave us thought process but also gave an idea of how to start with it. It changed my perspective of thinking towards money, rich people and managing our finances.

    "Great Book - Bad Narrator"
    Would you try another book from Robert T. Kiyosaki and/or Tim Wheeler?

    Robert - Yes
    Tim - No


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was constantly swallowing and making disgusting noises when he wasn't talking. The noises are loud and extremely unpleasant, especially when listening on earphones.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The content was good.

    "Focus on your Assets....the end"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rich Dad Poor Dad to be better than the print version?

    I've not read the print edition.


    What other book might you compare Rich Dad Poor Dad to and why?

    Other investing/business type books, nothing specifically as it has it's own twist on things.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tim Wheeler?

    Anybody else.


    What did you learn from Rich Dad Poor Dad that you would use in your daily life?

    Focus on my balance sheet and less on my income statement.


    Any additional comments?

    This book can be summed up by saying, focus on your balance sheet and overcome obstacles when they're presented.

    "Surprisingly Close-Minded"
    What disappointed you about Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    Kiyosaki listened to both dads, thought about the advice, and made his decision. I thought going into the book that it would be a presentation of the two different perspectives. Instead it was the bashing of one and exalting of the other. Not that I disagree with rich dad or agree with poor dad, but I would have appreciated the book more if it would have presented the ideas in a more non-biased format, and shown the results of the two types of advice.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Good points are made, I just wish they'd have been presented differently.

    "Very Motivating"

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for motivation to ignore any excuses and doubts and take control of their own financial situation.
    The use of the dichotomy of the"rich Dad" and the "poor Dad" to explain the differences in thinking and financial attitudes works perfectly.

    This is much better than any other book about finance I have come across in the past simply because it is much less boring and actually quite entertaining. It was very refreshing to not be forced to wade through chapters upon chapters of mind numbing drudgery, as is the case with most books about financial matters.

    After finishing Rich Dad Poor Dad I experienced a renewed enthusiasm to work towards financial freedom. It presents the information in a manner which is easy for the layman to understand and digest, and is very effective in leaving the reader feeling energized and enthusiastic.

    "READER NEEDS MORE TRAINING!!!"
    Would you listen to Rich Dad Poor Dad again? Why?

    The book is very good!. The reader, Tim Wheeler, has not received proper breathing instruction to narrate a book. Some people don't breath while they speak. This is not a healthy habit. It is distracting to listen to a book where the reader holds his breath and gasps between pauses. It actully interrupts my breathing while listening to him.!!!
