Written by Robert T. Kiyosaki, the famous writer of the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad and an entrepreneur who wants to spread his unconventional teachings of financial education. His main investment vehicle is Real Estate and he even made another book about it.A well-composed biography which revolves around the life of Mr. Kiyosaki a renowned entrepreneur as he shares his experiences and details of his life. From his childhood to his service in the Naval Industry and his decision to not to pursue his MBA instead took a 1-month real estate seminar. His family background, the pain, and suffering he went through and recollected himself is commendable. The day I finished reading this book, such an influential personality impacted me very deeply and it gave me a glimpse of how our current educational system is lacking. Robert Kiyosaki defined the type of students our School ranking system has made. “C” students or capitalist who grew up to be phenomenal successes – and HIRED those “A Students” “A” students or academics (attorneys, accountants, and other school-smart specialists) who ends up becoming an employee of C students “B” students or bureaucrats who are the more average students who often find themselves in government type of job. To me this book is relatable. I was an “A” student myself and I was proud of that. After reading this book, it made me realize that I was not that special and school grades don’t really measure your intelligence. The school doesn’t really prepare you for the difficulty of the life of a modern living adult. That’s why some really smart people who excelled in school didn’t really end up great in their career or outside school world. There is even a term for that its “empty-headed academics”. I’m not saying School is not important. It is just lacking in the area of financial education. SThe school doesn’t really teach much about Money-making because Teachers themselves are living paycheck to paycheck. Overall, this book is a good read. Don’t let the title deceive you it’s not made only for parents and children. It can be for any young adults. There are some spelling errors like fight school instead of flight school must be an error of the publishing company. This book gives a very good financial education, in order to avoid having grown-ups always living paycheck to paycheck. It will explain the right investment tool to use, business education, the quadrant, the use of debt as a leverage for your investment, passive income and taxation. I recommend buying this book. It’s available in most bookstore (National Bookstore) It will give you another opinion on your financial decision. But this one is rather extreme and unconventional. If you like going into good debt strategy this book will surely help you, but if you’re planning to get out of debt. This book might be a bad idea.
