In diesem Buch wiederholt sich alles bis zum Erbrechen. Wenn man den Inhalt knackig verpackt hätte, wäre das Buch etwa 40 Seiten dick. Dazu kommt, dass das Buch nicht zu wenig Eigenwerbung enthält. Du willst mehr bzw. überhaupt Mal was konkretes dazu wissen? Dann kaufe mein anderes Buch und melde dich auf meiner Website an und spiele dieses und jenes Spiel! Selbst jemand, der absolut keine Ahnung von Geld hat, wird aus diesem Buch nicht schlau werden. Es gibt vielleicht knapp 10 bullet points, die durchaus hilfreich sind, aber auch durchweg schwammig beschrieben werden. Das Buch liest sich wie eine aufgepimpte Biografie mit jeder Menge zu Finanztipps aufgeblasenen Binsenweisheiten.
Fazit: Ich verstehe den Hype um dieses Buch nicht. Es ist verdammt schmal im Inhalt, liest sich dafür aber flott und leicht. Trotzdem gibt es von mir keine Empfehlung.
I’m not sure what I was looking for from this book - but I didn’t find anything new or inspirational. There were a few pointers to thinking outside the box in terms of assets and liabilities; that is to make sure your assets make you money rather than just cost you money, but nothing I hadn’t come across before. My opinion is that specific examples werenot really that relatable to today’s economic environment in the UK. (I.e. making money from areal Estate Foreclosures)
Starting each new chapter by going over the main points of the old chapter I found just padded the book out and was not necessary to learning. There was the odd nod to spirituality - but I’m quite familiar with these concepts being a great fan of Wayne Dyer, Frederick Dodson and Eckart Tolle etc
In summery, Robert Kiyosaki is in the business of ‘Selling’ and SELL this book he does. My advise to anyone thinking of purchasing this book would be that the relevant information can be condensed down to one chapter of bullet points - the rest is just Fluff which Robert sells quite well.
A well-known book, but having read it, I believe this says more for Robert Kiyosaki's publicist than his writing prowess. As he admits himself in the book: he is a best *selling* writer, not the best writer. This book infamously turns some conventional wisdom on its head: savers are losers, the middle class is not comfortable, your house is not an asset. Bear in mind here that Kiyosaki is a jack of all trades who attempted (and an unkind person would say, failed) several careers before finding his niche, and even then has several failed businesses and a bankruptcy to his name. Should you really take financial advice from a person whose biggest financial success is writing "How to get rich" books? Go in with an open but skeptical mind and there are a few interesting points to be found here. Although I finished the book with no desire to replicate Kiyosaki's methods, it did impress on me the importance of tracking the direction of cash flow. You can't fill a bathtub if it's unplugged and the tap is only open a quarter turn.
enjoying it but find I have to skip half pages at a time as it is a lot of padding. I got it as a holiday read, not because I thought it had some magic answers.
You would also need a time machine for UK property, and then the advice would be great, if you bought 20 years plus ago, now the price rises have mainly happened.
I believe, as with all of these types of books, the author makes his money from publishing and marketing promises, if he knew how to make a lot of money in this economy, would he be doing the series of books?
The book is an easy read and the pages do quickly flyby. I was sceptical at first; I am an academic at heart much like Robert’s ‘poor dad’. However, I will not deny that Robert talks a lot of sense in no nonsense straight forward manner. All too often you hear of get rich quick profiteering preachers charging for books, seminars etc. This is not one of those cases; none of the advice in the book is geared toward getting rich quick. It is long-term advice/financial lifestyle changes that will take time patience, dedication and independent research to even begin paying dividends.
Whilst the advice and realisations shared in the book are good, it is limited and repetitive in what I can only say is a quality over quantity method of delivery. The one downside is that whilst the advice is good, directive on how to positively applying it to your own life is limited if not non-existent. There will be moments where you are screaming inside ‘tell me how to make this work for me’.
More so, the book could have been approximately 20 shorter if it was not for the copy and pasted end of chapter questions (questions you are meant to ask yourself upon reflection of the chapter you have just read). Personally, I felt this was unnecessary but may work for other readers.
Furthermore, I didn’t like how the book repeatedly attempts to upsell you Robert’s other writings and educational board games within the main body of the books text. It comes across as blatant pushy upselling, capitalising on a point that Robert knows has grabbed your attention i.e.
If you want to know more about this appealing lucrative point that I know unquestionably has grabbed your attention but that I deliberately choose to discuss vaguely in this book, buy my other book…
…If you want to learn how to specifically manage the assets that I have just stated can generate you a regular income, buy my board game…
If you want to learn how to manage more complex assets that generate you a more substantial regular income buy my advanced 2.0 board game.
This sales tactic is a constant throughout the book. Personally, I find it distasteful to the extent it actually begins to discredit the author who actually makes some sound points. Additional writings and resources available from Robert could be a simple bullet point list with a blurb for each one at the end of the book. Or at the very least mention them loosely and infrequently in the main text. At the very least this is not pushy or blatantly trying to upsell you something by deliberately withholding information on points being discussed currently that have grabbed your attention. It begins to depreciate the value of this book as an educational resource in its own right.
The book touches upon the 'what' the rich teach their kids but skips on the 'how' the rich tell their kids to make it happen, for me the latter is the more important. All in all, a good books that can remain a positive resource as long as you consciously choose to solely focus and retain the limited but valuable advice on offer.
I liked the overall message of this book and finished it quickly. The message about spending money sensibly on assets that can pay for themselves and fund your lifestyle, whilst saving diligently for the treats you want is timeless.
I felt a little patronised at the reflection sections at the end of each chapter.
the book has some interesting points, but those could be covered in half the size. there is a lot of repetition, some contradicting statements, some advice that could be considered questionable and most importantly for me a lot of ethically questionable suggestions and comments. I wouldn't be proud of some of the things the author seems to think are achievements.
