Most of us learn about money from our parents. So what can poor parents tell their child about money? They simply say, “Stay in school and study hard.” The child may graduate with excellent grades, but with a poor person’s financial programming and mindset.

This book made me rethink my decisions and emotions about money and nearly every chapter, though some parts were repetitive, offered new insight and ways to consider finances, even down to how, as a business owner, I should be paying myself first and then the bills.

EVIP Customer, Amazon reviewer

Eric H., Amazon reviewer

"We are trained to think about only a few ways to keep a roof over our heads or feed our families when, if you have the determination and patience, there are many ways to do that AND spend time with your family doing the things you love. This book pointed me in the direction of freedom and I have shared it with as many people will listen. "

Rich Dad Poor Dad Author

Robert Kiyosaki standing by a private jet in an airplane hanger

Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad - the international runaway bestseller that has held a top spot on the New York Times bestsellers list for over six years - is an investor, entrepreneur and educator whose perspectives on money and investing fly in the face of conventional wisdom. He has, virtually single-handedly, challenged and changed the way tens of millions, around the world, think about money.

In communicating his point of view on why 'old' advice - get a good job, save money, get out of debt, invest for the long term, and diversify - is 'bad' (both obsolete and flawed) advice, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage.
