    I suggest buying, stealing, renting, or borrowing it. It's a great read. It's basically a book that tells you to think outside the box. It's a motivational book. That will really open your eyes to new ways of thinking from the beginning. The secret to making money is to think differently from everyone else and this book will teach you that. "Don't work for money, let money work for you."

    Of course I'm into books about investing and things like that, but this is an easy read.

    I always heard about that book but never took the time to read it. I heard it was a good book maybe I can learn something from it. There's nothing wrong with getting to much knowledge.

    Robert Kiyosaki's book Rich Dad, Poor Dad is a great book. If you liked it, you should check out some of his other publications - The Cashflow Quadrant and Own Your Own Corporation.

    Very very good book, this gave me a lot of motivation. Great help with learning about money and how it works. The things they just dont teach you in a school.

    All that it teaches you is to buy property or start a business, that's about it.

    If that's all you got out of it you didn't really read the book. It's not telling you how you should make money it was written to open your mind and teach you to think outside the box to be rich.

    This great book is right up there with "Think and Grow Rich" by the late great Mr Hill. It is way more than just buying and selling property, but there is a lot of opportunity to be had doing that.

    The book teaches you about money and how to make money work for you not to work for the money.

    Staying out of the "rat race"

    And a lot more.

    I got all of Kiyosaki materials. He is a very good teacher
    and he helped me to change my perception about money
    and business.

    When I read his first book... it was like a paradigm shift
    I had "THE BIG AHA". In my opinion he is not just an author
    but a philosopher and he has a good heart to help people
    get out of the treadmill.

    Some people cannot leave the 'rat race'. They are too afraid of starving. They don't realize that unless they are a government worker they either produce more in value than what they are paid or they are fired. They need the security and will never venture off into 100% business. They don't think they can make it, as a basis it's good that it get's you thinking that it is possible.

    Am I nuts or wasn't I just reading a discussion on this forum about how the guy who wrote that book actually made all of his money from book sales and his seminars and in fact his method had a 90% failure rate (in his own words)? I don't know one way or the other but I am quite sure I saw a bunch of info on that. I assumed it was here because this is about the only website I read anymore. I saw him being interviewed and he certainly came across as being sincere.

    And Kiyosaki is STILL a slimmy slug. If you can find it ---d/l it -read it but dont give this nimrod andy more money than you have to. He's about as fake as my cousin Cindy bad boob job...well you get the idea...

    This is the book that completely changed my life and my way of thinking.

    I read his next 3 books too.

    Before i read this book, i was in the middle class way of thinking. The whole learning new things to get a good job with a good company and then trying to climb the ladder.

    This book completely changes your way of thinking about money and life. It got me into this whole internet marketing thing. Soon, i'll start buying investment properties.

    I highly recommend this book and his next 3 books. "cashflow quadrant" "guide to investing" "retire young, retire rich"

    I am quite into these kind of books as well, so I have read a lot of books on finances and money making etc. This one is really inspiring.. Actually after reading it, I also got the board game that he mentioned in the book. Its pretty cool.

    Another great book I read recently in "4 hour workweek " Awesome read !!
