Imagine being able to make so much money at an early age that you could decide when to retire, knowing full well that you have enough money stashed away to ensure a life not burdened by financial restraints. In this book, financial guru Robert Kiyosaki provides practical insight on how to put together a financial plan which promises not only to make you prosperous but to a ...more

I thought Kiyosaki had some good ideas in Rich Dad Poor Dad, so when this book's title caught my eye, I thought it'd be worth a read. It definitely was! Kiyosaki admits that he's not the best writer, and I agree, but he has a compelling way of teaching important business and financial lessons through stories about his past.

He shamelessly plugs his books, board games, and website, but it works; he sells tons of them, and I put several more of his books on my to-read list.

The book's main point is
I think this is the fourth book in the Rich Dad's series. This book is about leverage and the second book, Cash flow Quadrant, is about cash flow aspect, while his third book is about investing. This book is about the ultimate investor tool which is leverage. I learned about the importance of the leverage of one's words. What one says might become true. "Your words are flesh."

A must read book for anyone who wants to find the ultimate reason to retire young and retire rich and to rediscover your

The book contains a lot of useful information related to way of thinking that you need to follow if you want to retire young and rich. It also has some info for books, audio cds that you should read/listen on a way to becoming rich. I was very excited and I read the book just for few days.

First let me start off by saying what I like about the Rich Dad series of books:
I like that this book has been as popular as it has been. I think it has inspired a lot of people to learn about personal finance and how to build wealth. This is a very good thing.

I would caution people, because a lot of the advice given in these books can be dangerous. The problem is these books don't actually give any solid advice on anything covered in these books. These authors sound repetitive and vague in each

What an inspiring book! I listened to this book on audio, like I did the original Rich Dad, Poor Dad, and I am on my second listen through. There is so much good information in this book that if used carefully, could make a huge difference in people's lives. I sure intend to let it make a difference in mine! What I learned most from this book: it all starts with expanding your reality - opening your mind to the possibilities, taking steps to educate yourself (like reading this book), and surroun ...more

This book is all about using the power of leverage to becoming financial free. Too often we expect ourselves to take on everything, when really the mindset of becoming rich is to build a team and use the strengths of the team to tackle the problem.

I also like how Kiyosaki states that an exit strategy is very important to have. Too often we think we need to make millions and millions to be happy. Recognizing what are your expenses and what you could comfortably live on with passive income, is yo

Overly long (330 pages) and repetitious at times but definitely one of my favorite books in the RichDad series. This book gets down to the nitty gritty of what it really takes to retire early and retire financially free (or rich if you would like). Its 21 chapters are broken down into 4 major sections:

1. The Leverage of your Mind
This section covers the unique shifts in mindset you need to retire early

2. The Leverage of your Plan
This section covers the importance of having a sound plan and tips

I was skeptical from the start about reading a book entitled "Retire Young, Retire Rich" with a glossy picture of author Kiyosaki dressed in Steve Jobs black and then again pictured on the back of the book enjoying the rich life at last (Kiyosaki and Wife pictured riding horses on Fiji in the sun wind tustling their hair with the coast line in the background.)

Regardless, Kiyosaki has a few excellent overarching principles that I agree with.

1) Leverage your money. Make your money
Nov 17, 2011 StoryTellerShannon rated it liked it
Of all the RICH DAD books this is my most favorite.
Why? Simply because we've got someone who can walk the talk, telling us that most of the resistance we experience in making money is our own limitations.

It didn't make sense when I was working a day job. Sounded like a bunch of huey, really, but, once I started down the entrepreneurial path, that all changed.

I'm in total agreement. Most of the limitations Americans experience with wealth is all in their heads.

That said, for those willing to

I am embarrassed that I fell for this scam of a book.

As an avid reader, I forgot my own rule of buying a book before falling for this POS:

1. First check the NEGATIVE reviews on both Goodreads (preferred) and Amazon (only for reference)
2. Then read the positive reviews

After this if I am still inclined to reading it, I buy the book. Because at least I had been warned and I made the choice MYSELF.

Now onto the book. It is full of 368 pages of repeated empty words. Empty words repeated 1000 times are

I had to read this book twice. A lot of people may not like this book because it's not a "how-to." Through this book, I was able to write two blogs (Complacency & Talents as well as Complacency & Hebrew Slaves). This book encourages you to tap into your God-given ability.

The underlying message in this book is simply this: If we would focus on our God-given assignments and not compete, you will actually be rich (physical or spiritual).

“Mulailah dari yang kecil dan bermimpilah yang besar”

Saran dari Ayah Kaya Om Robert diatas benar adanya. Setidaknya itulah yang saya pelajari dari buku Retire Young Retire Rich ini. Sesuai judulnya, buku ini memang menjelaskan tentang kiat-kiat bagaimana agar bisa pensiun muda dan pensiun kaya. Om Robert sendiri, bersama istrinya Kim, akhirnya bisa pensiun dan bebas secara finansial di umur 47, sementara istrinya pada umur 37. Dan, berbeda dengan pikiran orang banyak (termasuk saya pada awal

Very good book on pointing out the right direction in getting the financial education you need.
This book is filled with lot's of useful tips and it's organized in a very good way.
Don't confuse this for a check-list or an instruction guide to your desires. Here you'll find the right references and the right direction, but it's up to you to learn a lot more before becoming succesful.

Common people always think how to get rick quick, but rich people think how to increase their financial intelligence. We do want to rich at young age and retire quickly. The question that we need to ask to ourselves is not how to be rich, but why we want to be rich? Is it to buy something expensive? make your parents happy? or for buying luxury things for your loved ones. For me i want to have financial freedom. Retire young, retire rich teach me how to think differently from others. Is it insid ...more

I think reading his previous Rich Dad, Poor Dad books would help before getting into this book. I've always been daunted by the idea of letting someone else hold your money, but I always believed educating yourself really helps in making big decisions, such as investment, in stocks, or mutual funds. This one wasn't as satisfying I hoped it to be but there were so many new points and strategies I've learned, what to look for in a stock, very key information so that I don't go in blind into decisi ...more

To my surprise and pleasure, I found this book to be much more than a financial read. It ventures into the realm of spirituality, making the point that we live in the reality we create for ourselves. There is much more to retiring young and retiring rich than simply saving or accumulating a heap of money, and the person who really wants to be set free financially must grasp this. Robert Kiyosaki unapologetically concentrates much of the narrative on the leverage of our mind, our words, our frien ...more

This book is geared towards people who are not satisfied with their life and want to make a change. A complete change of mind is necessary hitherto starting your pursuit of knowledge. You don’t become rich by content, or information, per say. You become rich by believing in yourself and being financially smart.

The primordial step towards anything in life is a belief. A belief that you control what you do; the next step is amassing the proper context. It is pivotal for success that you loose the

Shelves: finance-etc
Like Rich Dad, Poor Dad; this book also gives a good overview towards financial education; however, doesn't actually say how to get it. The author promotes real estate investments etc. What worked for him will not blindly work for others (else everyone would have been rich); however, the author makes it sound simple, which could be a motivator / confidence booster for the readers.
For those who have no clue about finance and are procrastinating, should surely read at least one of Robert Kiyosaki

I found this book on a give-a-way shelf at the school. Since we're changing jobs soon and getting a bit of a severance payout I thought I'd take a look. It's been a while since I've read any financial books, so it was good to read this. There were a couple of points to consider, like getting into real estate, trying option investing, and going for many sources of passive income. I'd heard it before, and the book was low on practical ideas. It's good to be reminded with everyone else shouting buy ...more

Buku ini berfokus mengajak pembaca untuk mengubah/mengupdate mindset terkait kehidupan finansial pribadi. Untuk sukses dalam sektor finansial, yang dibutuhkan bukan pendidikan akademik atau IQ yang tinggi. Pun bukan uang. Hal-hal tersebut tadi memang berpengaruh tetapi sebagai pendukung.

Decent follow up to the Rich Dad, Poor Dad, with a more in depth explanation of some concepts and ideas. But maybe a bit too much on the 'easy, smart quick way to get rich'-rhetoric, and not as much substance.

Another one Pops picked up for me at the East Lansing Public Library 'for sale' rack.

As I'm running low on otherwise interesting literature I figured I'd start getting through some of these side projects in order to up the ante when I finally get around to selling my stack of undesireables.

Personally, the book looks like it was once a college textbook for a low level finance class and when the professor was fired after a year the school refused to buy back the book so some lowly student held on

The limit is what we decide based on our reality. Decide your exit strategy first, then fill in the rest of the plan. Dare to dream with an open positive mind and then make it happen. If you want to be average, do what the average person does. The statistics are in the book.

Favorite line: "The word becommeth flesh." Say it and it will happen, good or bad. Perhaps it is out of context a bit, but the point is that if you always say you will not have enough and that you will be poor, you will be ri

This was the best so far of The Rich Dad, Poor Dad series. Robert covers most everything from investing to real estate to growing a business, but what he does best is pump you up so you actually believe it's possible to become rich. Comfortable is not enough, nothing short of wealth is good enough, and he gives you plenty of ideas.

Robert teaches the fundamentals of cash flow, strategies of investing for up, down or sideways stock market; the ins and outs of property management, and of course, hi
