Thoughts on Rich Dad, Poor Dad


It’s been a hot minute since I read this classic I’m gonna be honest. This book was great for its time but in 2023 I think there are better books out there. This book touches on a lot of conceptual topics especially around the idea of cash flow. While this is important to understand, and I find the way Kiyosaki conveys this to be wonderful, books like “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” by Ramit Sethi exist which just offer more actionable, practical advice for people to get started. That said, this book gives you the freedom to explore on your own and find what would benefit YOUR cash flow the most.

I may come back to this book again later and revisit this review, at which point I’ll write an updated review.
