In this book, the listener will find out why going to school, working hard, saving money, buying a house, getting out of debt, and investing for the long term in the stock market is the worst financial advice for most people.

In this book, the listener will learn the answers Robert found on his life-long search, after repeatedly asking the question, “When will we learn about money?”

In this book, the listener will find out why real financial education may never be taught in schools.

Trump’s chum

I think anyone reading this book will be challenged by the author’s peon to Trump. It certain put me off, and I’m intrigued by the idea that any wealthy person supporting Trump (a man who has refused to release his tax returns and believes in enriching the super rich with further tax cuts) is genuinely troubled by the impoverishment of the middle and working class. It’s riddled with cliches and capitalist propaganda. My advice...don’t bother buying this ‘novel’ .

Finally, It has arrived!

This is a book I have been waiting for to come out on CD for a long time, I pre-ordered is over a year ago. I have read every book that Robert T. Kiyosaki has published and this one is my favorite. You do need to read "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" and "the Cash-flow Quadrant" before getting this book. I say this because you need the fundamentals from these two books in order to fully grasp what this book has to offer. I would like to personally thank Mr. Kiyosaki for guiding me to financial success, and I hope you find the same success that I have found through his teachings.

Didn't really get anything new from this book.

Most of the information is captured in his previous book. Its's basically recap of his other book.

Another Home Run from Kiyosaki!!!

This is the 3rd book that I've listened to from this author, I liked it so much that I ordered the physical book & can't wait to read it.
This author just gets it. He is "The Man"
The narrator is incredibly good.
Buy this audio book, you WILL enjoy it.

Interesting as a book but repeatative in content

This is the third book I read from Rich dad series. it keeps talking about the importance of getting financial education but does not provide much financial education itself.

Robert Kiyosaki is a blessing to all.

Super loved the book.
Will try to learn more and put my knowledge to the test real soon.
Wish I can attend a seminar by Robert Kiyosaki in person!
Mr. Kiyosaki, you're my hero!
