To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It's a great little pocket book for anyone. I know it says for Teens, but it will be a starting point for anyone who hasn't got a clue. Personally, I loved it. Being a Money Literacy Educator for Kids, I gave the book to my 14-year old daughter to read and asked for a quick review from her. In her words, "mummy, it's really good, but it would be better if there were more money stories of adults and children". I asked her why so? In her words, "it will show how easy it is to do these things". My daughter does not represent every teenager, but her suggestion is worth noting.
I've become a fan of Mr Kiyosaki. Having put off reading his RDPD book for many years because I was put off by the title, I finally gave in a couple of weeks ago and read it in two sittings. I found the information so important I decided to get this for my daughter who so far has been uninspired by my other hero Dave Ramsey.
When I buy a book, I tend to read the summary, the reviews, how many pages (is it likely to be in depth?) I don't recall ever looking at the dimensions! This book is 127 pages long. Nothing unusual there. It seems an ideal length for teens to grasp the basic principles. When it arrived my daughter shrieked "what's this?" It's about the size in terms of total volume as a bar of soap. That came as a bit of a surprise. Fast forward to the evening, and my daughter has read it and memorised it and is quoting parts to me and is showing an interest in our fledgling property "empire". Mission accomplished! She then requested to read the full version of RDPD.
Very much a case of when the student is ready, the right master appears apparently.
So yes a tiny book but it sparked her imagination and has hopefully set her on the first steps to wealth. I so wish I had had access to this information at that age (14). Thank you Mr Kiyosaki.
I think the seller should have stated it clearly that it was a very small book. Unfortunately I didn't read the reviews otherwise I would have known. But otherwise it includes Robert kiyosakis wisdom in a miniature.
When I looked at this book... it had 127 pages so I thought... full of content and such a good price. Then when it came, it was so small, should have been for Tom Thumb or the borrowers! I suppose it could have fitted on half a dozen A4 pages rather them making into a small book... why? What a crazy thing to do, I'm lost for words... and so is the book! So this is feedback for you, it's the size of two or three large postage stamps... yes really!
Lesson learned. Always! I repeat always! read reviews before buying anything. If I had done that, I would have known that this book is tiny and a bit of a joke, and I wouldn't have purchased it at all! I already have "Rich dad, Poor dad" book but thought this would be a great version for teens, as I wanted for my son to read it. Instead I received a pocket book (see images of other reviewers...) Not even sure if it is worth £3.50 I paid for it. Save your money and buy the original version of the book. You'll learn much more from it.
This book is TINY! Which is fine but was a surprise. It gets you thinking which is great but there are two places where the text hasn’t been proof read and the sentences just stop. The page numbers are correct so I’m not sure how that could have happened. Hence the three stars.
A teen is not toddler sized and so doesn't require a toddler sized version of a book. The image is misleading and the size makes it less accessible. Text is split across several 'pages' which interupts flow. Returning the product.
Perfect Pocket size book for a teenager to put in her school bag or back pack. Valuable information to teach kids from a young age. Schools do not teach any child about money. Best book I have ever invested in to buy for my teenage daughter and she drank in every word of it. Small little book to re-edit the subconciouse mind and plant the seed of success and abundance.
