I am sure that seeing Rich Dad Poor Dad as a featured ‘book of the week’, is no surprise to most of you. The reason it is being posted this week, is because I just recently read it! Before the holiday season of 2014, I had yet to get my hands on the #1 personal finance book known to man.
Rich Dad Poor Dad, written by investor and educator Robert Kiyosaki was first published in 1994 and has now become a best-seller in many categories, and sold millions of copies over it’s two decades of existence. It has trained millions of amateur investors to look closer at what they are investing in and why they investing in that asset, if they are investing at all.
My personal favorite concept that gave me the most value was Robert’s simplified explanation of assets and liabilities. Simply put, assets put money in your pocket on a regular basis, and liabilities take money out of your pocket. Now as a student of business and money making opportunities, I found this explanation extremely clear and valuable. The reason lies in the truth that the statement holds.
Kiyosaki and his wife have now turned the book into a multi-million dollar business, teaching people across the world on the importance of investing and financial education through books, seminars, and even board games. Their movement is simple sweeping across the world.
Rich Dad Poor Dad, and Kiyosaki have both taken swarms of criticism through the years. It has blatantly stated the trouble that many Americans are currently in due to their lack of financial education and money skills. But the scary thing is that, I believe, he is right.
That is why Rich Dad Poor Dad, is this week’s recommended reading. Grab your copy of Rich Dad Poor Dad, and start prospering today…(Note: Attitudes 4 Innovation and it’s partners will receive a small commission if you purchase your copy through the link below)
