Personal-finance author and lecturer Robert Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective through exposure to a pair of disparate influences: his own highly educated but fiscally unstable father, and the multimillionaire eighth-grade dropout father of his closest friend. The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his "poor dad" (whose weekly paychecks, while respectable, were never quite sufficient to meet family needs) pounded home the counterpoint communicated by his "rich dad" (that "the poor and the middle class work for money," but "the rich have money work for them"). Taking that message to heart, Kiyosaki was able to retire at 47. Rich Dad, Poor Dad, written with consultant and CPA Sharon L. Lechter, lays out his the philosophy behind his relationship with money. Although Kiyosaki can take a frustratingly long time to make his points, his book nonetheless compellingly advocates for the type of "financial literacy" that's never taught in schools. Based on the principle that income-generating assets always provide healthier bottom-line results than even the best of traditional jobs, it explains how those assets might be acquired so that the jobs can eventually be shed. --Howard Rothman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"If you want all insider wisdom on how to personally get and STAY rich, read this book! Bribe your kids (financially, if you have to) to do the same." -- --Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of the #1 Chicken Soup for the Soul series
"To get over the top financially, you must read RICH DAD, POOR DAD. It's common sense and market savvy for your financial future." -- --Zig Ziglar, world-renowned author and lecturer

- A little repetitive, but then again worth it stick in your mind
For those who want to "Get rich OVERNIGHT" or "Want detailed investing solutions down to the penny" this is not your book.
This if the intro to begin investing and gaining wealth in your life.
If your a pessimist, go climb a tree
