Publisher's Summary

Investing means different things to different people… and there is a huge difference between passive investing and becoming an active, engaged investor. Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing, one of the three core titles in the Rich Dad Series, covers the basic rules of investing, how to reduce your investment risk, how to convert your earned income into passive income… plus Rich Dad’s 10 Investor Controls.

The Rich Dad philosophy makes a key distinction between managing your money and growing it… and understanding key principles of investing is the first step toward creating and growing wealth. This book delivers guidance, not guarantees, to help anyone begin the process of becoming an active investor on the road to financial freedom.

Read this review

The book was quite long. I have read this book, cashflow quadrant, and rich dad poor dad. You can just read rich dad poor dad and potentially cash flow quadrant and get a new mindset as to how to start thinking. Those two books I would say are the most important. This entire book felt like repetition of previous statements Robert has made in both rich dad poor dad and cashflow quadrant.

Learnt allot even though there may be some fluff

Whether you like him or not, Robert has great advice and really changed my way of thinking as well as reinforced my way of thinking in some areas. Ever since I started following his guides, my life has changed for the better and I finally feel like I'm in control of my life.

Their are some issues with the book in that there is a bit of fluff where he says the same thing over and over but in different ways, and then if you're already familiar with his other books he goes over stuff you already know, over and over, so its a little annoying. BUT there's a lot of new info in here that's definitely worth buying the book for.

If you're trying to get out of the rat race of that 9 to 5 then get this book. Its worth it, get it on audible and listen to it while in traffic. You'll get a fire like never before to get your life on track to stop working for money and get your money working for you.

Buyer Beware: Not what it seems

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

One claim in the beginning of this book is that any investor of any level can get some thing form this book. After grinding through the entire book, I can say that this is almost entirely false. Robert does go through some points about becoming an investor can be important, but that's really it. You keep getting the feeling that he will walk the listener into a new ideas, but instead he always finds a way to circle back to old ideas (many from his first book) and repeat the to a mind numbing level.

This book titled guide to investing, but there's next to nothing about investing as it pertains to how the economy works, stocks, bonds, futures, ect. There's some, but its an afterthought.

I also covered Rich Dad Poor Dad, and I found some of the philosophy easily palatable to readers. but that was it. I think that all the author had to say was in that book, and I personally cant imagine that I will buy another book in this series. If you are interested in investing, then you will find plenty other great ones on Audible.

Changed way of thinking but not actual strategies

Robert Kiyosaki's storytelling is very personal and therefore easy to understand. He provides you with further books to read as well which is also valuable. Warning: This book can make you feel stuck at your work but at the same time can change your lifestyle. I think Robert's specialty is making you aware of something. I got the from rich dad poor dad enough. I wish he covered little more on investment strategy. I understand why he is respected by all the great successors without risk. He simply doesn't give any technical strategy that is risky. The narrator is wonderful.

Repetitive Sales Pitch & Fake Stories

What was most disappointing about Robert T. Kiyosaki’s story?

This book completely fiction and made up. He never had 2 dads and "Rich Dad" never existed. It's been proven and he's admitted it. Yet, with his horrible writing and disturbingly repetitive stories and statements, it's amazing how he can repeat the same garbage for this long, book after book after book.

If you read the first book, you will NOT get anything new out of here. So disappointed, it's a complete rip off and sales pitch to attend his seminars and buy his ridiculously expensive mentoring packages (that are just more sales pitches).

Any additional comments?

DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS BOOK! Fair warning, it's the same stuff in his first book, just overly embellished, exaggerated, and useless. He literally continues to repeat, "your house is not an asset" "Rich Dad's philosophy is your house is not an asset" "Why call your house an asset if it costs you money" "your house is not an asset" "Rich Dad's philosophy is your house is not an asset"..... see where I'm going?

DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!

Repititive

This is a very long book with LOT AND LOTS of fluff. He says a lot without saying anything important, restating the same useless banter about himself over and over again. It's frustrating. Over and over he says the same things, it's as though he needed to repeat himself just to have enough content to fill a book. It could have been less than half its length. It's pathetic and I feel cheated.

Could’ve been summarised in one chapter

While there might be some good advice when reading between the lines, the amount of repetition is mind-numbingly boring. I struggled to stop myself from zoning out and trying to listen attentively. If you skip to chapter 28 you won’t have missed anything. In a nutshell, the author says if you want to be a millionaire, you need to set up a company, take it public and sell shares rather than buy shares in someone else’s company. So rather than investing as an individual, you’ll be investing as a business. This is repeated over and over again for 16 hours as well as the difference in thinking between his poor dad and rich dad. At times, with all the repetition and drilling, I almost felt like I’m being treated as an idiot.

I gave this book 3 and half hours. Waste of time.

I tried to give this book a fair go and listened for 3 and a half hours but it is the worst book I have had off audible. It is incredibly repetitive and boring and in the time I spent listening to it, it taught me absolutely nothing of any use.

The author spent most of the time referring to his other books to try and get you to buy them as well and then telling you what he was going to tell you later in the audiobook and not actually giving any useful information.

If you want to learn about investing I'd say you're much better off with books like The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham and The Education of a Value Investor by Guy Spier.

Summary - Repeated material from his first book

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who hasn't read his first book

What will your next listen be?

Mastery by Robert Greene

Have you listened to any of Tim Wheeler’s other performances? How does this one compare?

He's pretty good oritor

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Rich Dad's Guide to Investing?

This book is pointless and wish I had not burned money buying it. The first book was more than enough.

great book

I love the rich dad series. I bought the book months ago, however as it was over 400 pages I felt too overwhelmed to start it. Listening to the audio was great, and I completed it in a week in my spare time. Very thought provoking and challenging. I can't wait to build a business and invest from the inside 😊

Repetitive

It has some great tips and advice.. but if you have read his other books it’s very repetitive and long winded wish he would have got to the point quicker. Rich dad poor dad, cashflow quadrant, rich dad poor dad for teens are great books

What a frustrating waste of time. I've only a single one of his books - Rich Dad Poor Dad - but would have rather taken his advice and 'do more with less' by reading an online summary and save myself the misery.

Really hard to listen to

I can't believe how high the ratings are for this book.
I'm not sure I'll be able to finish it.
All messages come from a conversation approach, "I asked rich dad *insert obvious dumb question*" "Rich dad said *insert message you want from the book*" The whole thing is Rich dad said blah blah blah..
If this book was written in a story format without everything having to be said from rich dad it would be a lot better.
In saying that, I am over half way through and feel like I haven't really gained any knowledge.

Awesome! Just like his other great books!

If you like Rich Dad Poor Dad books, you will also like this one. Some people argue that he repeats a few things a lot and he does but I think it's a good think because they are important concepts that need to be iterated over and over again.

If you want to learn about money management, investing, assets, liabilities and much more, this book is for you.
Will definitely listen to it again!

Overall Good book

Too much mention for his other books, but this one focuses on investment. And just like the other books, it's repeating the same concepts again and again without telling you how to actually do it.

Lacks depth

i found there to be an absence of structure and order in the of topic delivery. content lacks depth and isn't grounded in real examples. great conceptual ideas but little to take away and actualise.

Great book, it opens one's eyes to new options.

I will have to read this book again and take notes. As a quick once over it allowed me to think outside of the box (the very little box I had made for myself). I like the way it was presented too, rather than a text book of info the same information is given in the way of a novel/ story.

Fantastic Read

I absolutely loved the reader of this book. It was very clear and very clear to understand this book. In fact, it is my second time listening to this book.

This book makes it easy and straight forward to understand the levels of investing, especially for someone starting out to learn about investing. Highly recommend !!
