5.0 out of 5 starsIf you want to transform your beliefs around money, read this book!
Reviewed in Australia on 9 July 2019
This book was transformative. My beliefs about money were very different before reading this book, but by the last page I felt like I had a revelation. Definitely recommend to people wanting to change their financial situation. Perhaps not relevant to Australian's as Robert is in America, but I took a lot from this book.
The book is good quality for its price. However my book’s barcode sticker was on the actual book instead of the plastic cover. The sticker as you can see is one of those “you can never entirely remove” stickers. It just looks bad. Therefore only 2 stars, sorry.
The writing style was easy to read and although there is lots of repeating it certainly reinforces the most important points. It gave me a real sense of wanting to get into some 'action' having read this book. Worth the investment of the few dollars.
This book really opened my eyes and changed my thinking about how the rich get rich and stay rich. It has definitely had an impact on how I think about my finances. The information is presented in a clear and concise format with diagrams and easy to read language. This is a huge plus for those who are not great at reading about money and finances. Like me.
Kiyosaki outlines how the education system in America (and I believe in Australia) fails to teach our future generations about finances. I completely agree with his point of view and have been of the opinion that the education systems set people up to fail and not succeed. We need to be teaching our children how to survive in the real world and we are definitely not doing this.
You need an open mind to read this book. You need to be open to the advice, to the alternative methods that you may not have been taught before. You need to really want to break away from the paycheck-to-paycheck mentality. You need to be open to a new mentality and way of thinking. You need to really want something more.
My recommendation: A great book for those with an open mind.
