Reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad is an amazing investment of time. You get more returns than your investment the moment you start devouring page after page of this book. For the beginners who desire to achieve economic prosperity, Kiyosaki offers workable insights based on real life experiences. It teaches us ideas about applied economics that should have been taught to us in schools or at home. The principles of financial literacy- Accounting, Investing, Understanding markets and relevant laws are explained in a way that even a layman can fully relate to them. The author emphasizes the importance of sound finances for a better meaningful life. He argues that while one may be academic genius, a topper, a gold medalist, there is every possibility of ending up as a failure without financial know-how. The book teaches the difference between assets and liabilities in a way we never imagined. The author says that while the rich invest in assets and let money work for them, the middle class invests in liabilities naively considering them as assets and work for money. For example, expensive house/car is a liability for rich and an asset for the poor. The rich take risk, but the poor always play safe when it comes to investment and returns. The rich create assets to pay their expenses, the poor balance income and expenses without ever pondering about it. The difference, the author says lies in thinking. "If you have to invest in something, invest in financial literacy", the author asserts. This is a must read for people who want to challenge their minds.
