We have many titles by Robert Kiyosaki in our collection. (formats includes ebooks and audio) You've probably heard about them. So what's the big deal? Rich Dad, Poor Dad chronicles the story of the author's two dads, his own father, who was the superintendent of education in Hawaii and who ended up dying penniless and the father of his best friend who dropped out of school at age 13 then went on to become one of the wealthiest men in Hawaii. Recently the author has included the flollowing disclaimer in his books “Although based on a true story, certain events in this book have been fictionalized for educational content and impact”  His books have sold almost 30 million copies.

With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. These are some of his major principles he talks about

  1. The rich don’t work for money
  2. The importance of financial literacy
  3. Minding your own business
  4. Taxes and corporations
  5. The rich invent money
  6. The need to work to learn and not to work for money
