5.0 out of 5 starsIf you want to transform your beliefs around money, read this book!
Reviewed in Australia on 9 July 2019
This book was transformative. My beliefs about money were very different before reading this book, but by the last page I felt like I had a revelation. Definitely recommend to people wanting to change their financial situation. Perhaps not relevant to Australian's as Robert is in America, but I took a lot from this book.
The book is good quality for its price. However my book’s barcode sticker was on the actual book instead of the plastic cover. The sticker as you can see is one of those “you can never entirely remove” stickers. It just looks bad. Therefore only 2 stars, sorry.
i am greatly dissatisfied with this product. There are 243 pages in the book I obtained from Amazon whose cost was Rs.299/-. But my colleague purchased the same book for same price containing 350 pages. Then what should I do this product. Why such thing is happening.
The book is really easy to understand and to read, the message Robert gives is good and can help you change your mindset to be more financially independent but please beware of richdad education. After purchasing this book I immediately received ads all over social Media Facebook and instagram about Rich dad education seminars. I sign up for and went to one of their “free” seminars just to find a random guy talking about how rich and and wealthy he become after rich dad education and how now he is giving back to the community teaching them how they can become wealthy by doing all the real estate strategies promising that they will teach all this great strategies if you purchase a 3 day seminar for $700.00 ... and so I did purchase the 3 day seminar excited to find out what I was promised “real estate strategies” unfortunately after a few hours of being in the seminar I realized that all they were doing is talking about how you need and must invest on a 50k package plan. So you can have access to a mentor. 3 whole days just listening to an old lady talking about her life and how rich and wealthy she is, brainwashing you to invest in their plans to the point of asking for extreme personal financial information. wasted 3 days of my life and $700.00 just to give them the opportunity to talk about how I need to purchase their $50,000 legacy plan. They never talk about what I was promised at first on any real estate strategy. Please beware of this scam. I posted the packages they almost force to purchase and the questionnaire are you need to submit so they know how much money you have and or how you can get a loan to purchase their package.
For years I've been hearing that this is a "must read" book, so I decided to buy a copy to read during a recent trip abroad and excitedly got stuck into reading it. However, I have to say that so far (I'm only 4 chapters in), it's been really disappointing and certainly not living up to the hype.
The main problems are: a) it's really badly written, and b) it just repeats the same things over and over and over again. I wouldn't mind if they were important things that were being repeated, but sadly they're not.
To make matters worse, at the end of each chapter there are several pages recapping what was said over the chapter you've just read!
4 chapters in and I'm really debating whether it's worth giving more time to it... which is a shame as I got it hoping to enjoy it.
Unless you're REALLY clueless about money & business, I'd (sadly) give it a miss.
While the book has 600+ pages, they key message can easily be reduced to 1 chapter. The key message (invest in investments instead of relying on your salary) is interesting, but the additional chapters felt like unhelpful "fluff" and a waste of my time to read. Another reason why I didn't find it an enjoyable read is that quite a few statements he makes are very black&white while reality is actually more grey. Now if he would have added helpful tips on how to get started with building your assets, that would have been helpful. But no, you'll have to buy another book of his in order to find out...
If this is your first book on personal finance or growing financially then I think it ii an ok place to start. It has some good points and tips that could help you in the long run. However this may be one of the most repetitive books I have ever read in my life. 300 pages of waste and I had to skip over the last few chapters. Each point that he makes is repeated at least 4 times throughout the book to the point were it is almost brain numbing. As I said the points were good but nothing that you wouldn’t find in any other books
I owned this book in the past and wanted to reorder it to read it again. Instead of getting the book I expected, I received a tiny, hand sized book, with print that is too small and that is, frankly, hard to open all the way in order to read the words near the binder. So the book is utterly useless. With all the complaints about this tiny book, I'm not sure why that is the book that automatically comes up when you search for the book. Instead, the normal sized book should be the default, and then people can select the pocket sized book if they want. So I would say that the content of the book is excellent. DO purchase the book; however, BE SURE TO SELECT THE LARGER, PAPERBACK VERSION if that's what you want (sorry for the all caps, just want to make sure people see that part).
