"Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money - That the Poor And Middle Class Do Not!" is a personal finance book written by Robert Kiyosaki. The book challenges traditional beliefs about money and encourages readers to adopt a new mindset towards wealth creation.
The book is structured as a series of lessons, with Kiyosaki drawing on his own experiences growing up with two very different father figures - his "rich dad" who was a successful entrepreneur, and his "poor dad" who was a highly educated but financially struggling government employee.
Kiyosaki's rich dad teaches him key principles about money that he claims the poor and middle class do not understand. These include the importance of financial education, investing in assets that generate income, and taking calculated risks to create wealth. Kiyosaki also stresses the importance of building a team of experts and mentors to guide you along the way.
Throughout the book, Kiyosaki challenges readers to think differently about their financial goals and strategies. He argues that many people are trapped in a cycle of debt and consumerism, and encourages them to break free by adopting the mindset of an investor and entrepreneur.
"Rich Dad Poor Dad" has been widely popular since its publication in 1997, and has been translated into multiple languages. It has been credited with inspiring many people to take control of their finances and pursue financial freedom.
