Rich Dad Poor Dad
by Kiyosaki, Robert T./ Lechter, Robert T. Kiyosaki, Sharon L.
"Personal-finance author and lecturer Robert T. Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective from two very different influences--his two fathers. One father (Robert's real father) was a highly educated man, but fiscally poor. The other father was the father of Robert's best friend--the Dad who was an eighth grade dropout who became a self-made multi-millionaire. The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his "poor dad" pounded home the counterpoint communicated by his "rich dad." Taking that message to heart, Kiyosaki was able to retore at 47. RICH DAD, POOR DAD, written with consultant and CPA Sharon L. Lechter lays out Kiyosaki's philosophy behind his relationship with money. RICH DAD, POOR DAD opens readers eyes by:

- exploding the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich
- challenging the belief that your house is an asset
- defining once and for all an asset versus a liability
- explaining what kids need to know about money for their future financial success"

Chenghonfai 's Review

If there is a book which affects me a lot recently, Rich Dad Poor Dad is the one.
The idea of the book comes from the comparison of two Dads the author met. His own dad is a well-educated person working as a civil servant while his friend's dad is a rich man.

Few ideas were cited.
1) For the rich, they do not work for money. Money works for them.
2) Having a job can only solve the problem of lacking money at a short term. We are all like a rat in a wheel keep on running and running. We are only working for Government (tax) and bank (your loans)

3) Essence of giving up. You lack something so it pushes you. If you do not give , you will have no return.
4) When you want to do something which is hard, do not say you cannot do it. But "How can I get it done?"
5) The importance of Finanical IQ and financial freedom.

It does change a bit my mind. Perhaps it's time for me to do some financial things?

All the best to Mr. Alson Miu and Mr. Ken Lee.
I am proud to work with you.
