The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his "poor dad" pounded home the counterpoint communicated by his "rich dad". Taking that message to heart, Kiyosaki was able to retire at the age of 47. This book lays out his philosophy and aims to open readers eyes by: exploding the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich; challenging the belief that your house is an asset; showing parents why they can't rely on schools to teach their children about money; defining once and for all an asset versus a liability; and explaining what to teach your children about money for their future financial success.Hide synopsis

I remember posting a question about how people found Robert Kiyosaki's book, "Rich dad, Poor Dad" on Askville.com by Amazon and I had quite a variation of responses. Some found it useful yet there were some not so great ones.
Nevertheless, today I am writing this review to express a personal opinion on how emotionally touched it endured to me. As a person who has been in the glorious and downfalls of being a small business entrepreneur, I find some of the book's morals' sensible as in reality how we think "impacts" our own destiny.
In the topics where Rich Dad's idea on GROWTH and FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE were focused on investing, Robert's assessment that the industrial age is gone and "today" is the Information Age is very true in my own personal experience.
Similarly, I personally am raised in a culture that my parents thought that having a job and career by going to school was the key. Unfortunately, being born on the last year of the baby boomer generation, that reality is gone as the information age sat in. I had to learn how to use coimpuserve then in 80's as an email and today I still struggle with website design and analytics.
The main moral in this book is that we have different patterns of thinking that we can utilize in our own lives and destiny. Regardless of what situation we are. In my such being disabled, struggling and even discriminated sometimes because of being low income and living frugal should not be a deterent for my still being able to hope and still dream.
I believe in THE SECRET as like Wayne Dyer's Changing your Thoughts changes your life. In Rich Dad, Poor Dad we are given the realities yet we ourselves the only excedptional one that owns our mind and thinking. No mater how tempting the challenges are if we remain healthy in our minds that there is hope then there is encouragement to endure. Kudos to Robert Kiyosaki.
