Kiyosaki expands on his belief that the school system was created to churn out Es / Employees...those "A Students" who read well, memorize well and test well... and not the creative thinkers, visionaries, and dreamers - entrepreneurs-in-the-making...those "C Students" who grow up to be the innovators and creators of new ideas, businesses, applications, and products.
The audiobook urges parents not to be obsessed with their kids' "letter grades" ("good grades" might only mean they or the student themselves were successful in jamming a square peg into a round hole...) and focus, instead, on concepts, ideas, and helping their child find their true genius, their special gift. The path they can pursue with a love and true passion.
Robert showcases success stories of "C Students" who grew up to be phenomenal successes - and HIRED those "A Students" (attorneys, accountants, and other school-smart specialists) to work in their businesses... while the more average students, "B Students", often find themselves in government-type jobs....
Not surprisingly, Kiyosaki will coin his own definitions of what "A," "B," and "C" stand for as he gives parents and their children bits of wisdom as well as insights and tools for navigating an ever-changing world...an Information Age world where the ability to change and adapt, understand relationships, and anticipate the future will shape their lives.

An avid reader (listener) since childhood. (It says I've been a member since 2017. I've actually been a member since 2014)...
An excellent book for someone like me. I'm a school teacher, with an entrepreneur fighting to get out. This book is an invaluable source of information on finance and traditional school education. My 2 teenage children got a great deal out of listening to this with me.
It's a nice narration but the same point seems to be made over and over and over.
Maybe it's indoctrination and I'll get rich for perseverence?!
"Good read, Horrible reader"
Yes because his teachings are very inspirational and motivating.
The narrator was horrible
I would buy the book instead of listening to it. Its really your preference really, like you if you are just in the car and want to here some inspirational teachings then yea, but if you just want to get more out of it and comprehend it more I would just buy the book.
"Must read for patents and Undergrads"
This book summarizes everything you need to know for coming up with a success plan in today's unstable economy,
He covers in nuggets the history of our govt, federal reserve , fiat currency and the different quadrants.
He lays it out in a simple form what you need to do.
A must read !
Great book I would recommend to anyone whether you are a parent or not
Every chapter was great highly recommended
"his best yet!"
I've listened to nearly all the books on the rich dad series and this is perhaps the best. both cautionary and inspiring at the same time, Robert tells the truth about how the economic system works, why it crashed, why it is doomed and what we can do for ourselves and our children in light of the system's fundamental flaws.
"Incredibly boring, political, condescending"
I liked his other books more. This one is light on information and heavy on drawn out anecdotes that don't really teach much as much as preach basic opinions.
"Good information - uncorrelated anecdotes"
The book has good information and certainly very useful for kids and adults. The advice is invaluable.
Only issue is that some of the anecdotes to correlate the stories and some references to the economy are about accurate. Example he mentioned the recession in the 1920s made the Dow drop and only bounced back after 20+ years and hence the current recession may take so much. Well the Dow bounced back already during gosh recession.
Sometimes buying a liability may be necessary - car for family - but he makes it sound useless and ignores the opportunity cost of not having a car when you have a large family.
Overall I will recommend this book but don't put your heart in all the advice. Customize it for our situation.
"Great book! Loving the Rich Dad teachings."
Very good book for parents wanting to learn differently about money and sharing such knowledge with their children.
"Great Education For Investors and Future Investors"
Yes, this was another great book by Robert Kiyosaki. I would listen to it again so I could better understand his concepts that he talks about. I also was motivated to purchase his board games for my kid so that I can teach my child using scenario based training and expand on my child's understanding and lessons that have been taught in the past.
All of his other books.
He gives the information but I would like to hear another person narrate his books that brings more of an engaging tone.
The information in this book is very valuable and should be heard by pretty much everyone.
just what I need to greet my son's financial education on track. no one teaches this I schools...i never learned this myself. totally true
