Summary

Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money - That The Poor And The Middle Class Do Not!, by Robert T. Kiyosaki, compares the financial philosophies of the author's two fathers: his biological father - the poor dad - and the father of his childhood best friend, Mike - the rich dad.

Throughout the book the author compares both fathers, and how his real father, the poor and struggling but highly educated man, paled against his rich dad in terms of asset building and business acumen.

    Waste of money.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Just a rip off, piggy backing on the back of the original.

    What was most disappointing about Robert T. Kiyosaki’s story?

    This was a poor summary of a great book.

    needs more detail

    needs more detail, it's a good summary of the topics covered but would be better with more detail behind it

    Read the book!

    Read the book! This is a lame summary. Also the summary misuses quotes and projects tones I did not pick up in the book - I have read most chapters more than once.

    Don't waste your time. Buy the original book.

    Was not worth my time. I got the original book and that was worth my time.

    Not worth it. It simply lists the book chapters.

    Would you try another book from Robert T. Kiyosaki and/or Ronald Eastwood?

    Not worth it although cheap. It simply lists the book chapters, not that important info is added. Go for the full book and you will not be disappointed.

    What could Robert T. Kiyosaki have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Be more engaging on the description of chapters e.i. stimulate my imagination about the benefit I will receive at reading the book

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I felt he read the table of contents and that's it

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Summary of Rich Dad Poor Dad?

    cut?? I would add.

    Any additional comments?

    Will ask form my money back

    Bullseye Review!

    This is a great summary of Rich Dad Poor Dad! I recommend reading the book, but this is a great way to refresh on the key points the book makes.

    totally worth less than a dollar.

    Great Cliff/Spark Notes... Worth more than I paid

    I listened to the unabridged version on a road trip and knew I would need to listen again to take notes in order to apply the strategies and consider the material discussed for a mindset change for me. This Summary was perfect. As I was listening, I recalled many of the specific examples the author shared with each bullet point. This was a great summary and saved me lots of time. After listening to the original, I purchased several copies for friends who said they have it in print (as did I) but never made the time to get through it. I wish I had listed to the summary before gifting the original. They would love this. Well worth it.

    Straight to the point.

    Brief, succinct summary on the book's main takeaways. I recommend buying if on the fence.
