Summary

In 1997, Robert’s book Rich Dad, Poor Dad stunned listeners, stating, "Your house is not an asset." As howls of protest went up around the world, the book went on to become an international best seller, one of the longest-running best sellers in New York Times history.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad is not a book on real estate. It is a book about the importance of financial education. Rich Dad, Poor Dad was written to prepare you and your loved ones for the financial turbulence Robert’s rich dad saw coming.

In 2007, as homes declined in value or were lost to foreclosure, millions of homeowners painfully discovered the wisdom in Robert’s rich dad’s words.

Today, we are all aware that a home can be a liability. Today, we all know a home can go up or down in value. Today, we all know a person can lose money investing in the stock market. Today, we all know our money can go down in value and even savers can be losers.

This is why your financial intelligence is more important today than ever before. In a world of financial turbulence, your best asset is your financial IQ.

"This book is about choosing new options, new directions, and a new financial future." (Robert Kiyosaki, author)

Summary - Repeated material from his first book

Would you try another book written by Robert T. Kiyosaki or narrated by Tim Wheeler?

After reading his first book and many others. I have decided to ignore all other books Robert Kiyosaki releases. He is clearly taking his own advise and milking the brand to produce rents from his ownership of copyright.

What will your next listen be?

Mastery by Robert Greene

Would you listen to another book narrated by Tim Wheeler?

yes

What character would you cut from Rich Dad's Increase Your Financial IQ?

none

Any additional comments?

I own most of his books. I already have the mind set and behaviour he teaches prior to reading all his books. If your financially illiterate, it’s enough to read his first book Rich Dad Poor Dad (Unabridged)

Great for rich investors; not so good for others

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

After listening to rich dad, poor dad I had high expectations of this book.It did not really work out for he is primarily singing the praises of full time investing into real estate (buying apartments and renting them out; not shares in a portfolio). Great if you have time and money to do that but I am more looking for ways to invest modest monthly sums in addition to my day job and this does not help me much

Would you recommend Rich Dad's Increase Your Financial IQ to your friends? Why or why not?

No, but still recommend rich dad, ppoor dad

Did Rich Dad's Increase Your Financial IQ inspire you to do anything?

no

Great listen

Listened up until the afterwords which bang on about the US economy a bit too much so gave up with 35 minutes to go. Other than that it is another great RDPD listen!

Fluffy bags of air and stories

If there were a way to give this book zero Stars I would have. If you've read any of the previous books there is no need to purchase this one. This book is filled with fluffy stories and no content. I was all in good rich dad poor dad, I even purchased the game. When I say this book is a total waste of time, it really is. It just repeats old stories and information from previous books. Over and over again drawn out stories apparently in the attempt to make the book longer. Some may have caught the fact that I said the same thing in three different ways; now you know what it's like to read this repertory book.

Not as Good as Rich Dad Poor Dad

Although an informative book this is mostly for people who are interested in starting their own businesses. Make sure you listen to his books in order as this one does make references to previous books.

Should be required listening

Would you consider the audio edition of Rich Dad's Increase Your Financial IQ to be better than the print version?

This is the type off book that is probably better in written form but only because of the need to stop regularly to write notes and examine diagrams. There is so much useful information in this book that I found myself having to stop the program to give myself reminders and write down ideas - a little bit annoying with the audio, but at least one can pick up right where one left off.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Rich Dad's Increase Your Financial IQ?

It is filled with "aha!" moments - times when something that Kiyosaki says just makes sense of something in the world. I lost count of the number of these as I listened to this book on a long drive.

What about Tim Wheeler’s performance did you like?

Tim was clear and easy to understand and didn't become boring - even after nine hours of listening.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Become smarter about money.

Any additional comments?

This book should be required listening.

First half is good

First half sparks that fire in you and gets your mind thinking. Second half feels redundant to the other books.

Want to take your life to the next level?

This was my third book that I have listened to by Robert Kiyosaki and with each one my understanding of not only money and business but also the understanding of myself grows. One of my goals is to meet Mr. Kiyosaki one day so I can thank him in person for all the work he has done in helping me achieve my goals. 5 STARS!!!!

Good concepts.

The book has good basic information. The concepts are easy to understand, but they lack direct practical implementation. Would have been nice for him to provide more examples of how get got started making his millions.

Simple, clear, succinct and logical..

I love this book. Robert's no BS approach to money paved the way for me to leave my job, start a business, and increase my income. No college degree, rich family, or privilege—quite the opposite. Empowered by the information in this book, and others like it, I made a decision to break the line of poverty that ran through my family and to develop the character and humility to learn from my mistakes. Above all, this book taught me: My poverty is my fault and my choice. And because I know that I can now choose otherwise. Thank you for your sacrifices and hard work, Mr. Kiyosaki. Men like you are the reason our society will continue to prosper. I look forward to one day thanking you in person. ~Greg W.

Everyone should read this

I can't stress enough how crucial this book will be in my future. This, and all of the other Rich Dad books I have read, have altered my life path permanently and for the better. Listen to this audiobook, it can only help.
