Summary

"When I was just nine years old, I began learning how to become rich by playing the game of Monopoly®. If I'd just been lectured to about money management, financial responsibility, and investing, I doubt I would have listened and I doubt I would have achieved financial freedom early in life. Instead, I might be stuck in the Rat Race working hard, deeply in debt, and worried about keeping my job or having enough money for my retirement. But because I enjoyed learning when I was young, I wanted to learn more. I was on the road to financial intelligence."
—Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad

Great Story, Okay performance, but not for me.

This feels like an episode from an 80s sitcom/drama. Which, if you're into nostalgic acting then you might enjoy this short story.

The voice acting would be dated even for today's kids. I was trying to see if I could gain some insight for my kids in the near future (age 9 and 6) but I would say they would probably not listen to this story.

For where I am in life (34, family, small business owner) I do not recommend it. It's basically a "Rich Dad Poor Dad" excerpt.

Error

This choice was made in error. I was expecting Rich Dad Poor Dad. I hope to purchase the original on my next attempt.

Easy to Understand

Role play is good. They speak slow and clear making it easy to understand and replay the lesson taught to Rob K. while growing up with a poor dad and also a rich dad.

Excellent information for the 20th Century

It is awesome book. Not worth the price in the 21st Century due to so much information that are on the world wide web. overall it is a good book for kids and even for adults to learn the basics of financial literacy.
