Rich Dad books- not sure what I think of them

March 24th, 2008 at 07:48 pm

I just finished the first Rich Dad Poor Dad book and am halfway through the investing one, which is the third in the series. I'm not sure what I think of them. At first, I was interested because they were a little different than the standard p. finance books out there. But now, I don't know.

In the investing book, there is a lot of talk about generating assets. I think the idea is right on, but I'm not so sure the advice is as nitty gritty how to as I'd like it to be.

I'm wondering if there is another book out there that could give more concrete advice on how to create assets and generate passive income...

One day, I would like to not have to depend on work and jobs for money. And not just in a living off of dividends in retirement kind of way, you know?

Anyway, if you have any thoughts on this. Or any book recommendations, I'd love to hear them.

    I'm not a Kiyosaki fan.

    I recommend the Bogleheads' Guide to Investing. That'll give you more investing advice than you'll probably ever want. Big Grin

    My book, "Financial Abundance Guide" approaches asset creation from a combination of tax saving advice, investment strategies, risk management and retirement preparation.

    If you're interested, go to You can download the free "Mini guide" and get details on the book's contents before making any decisions.

    LOL, finally coming out of the woodwork for some self-promos? Big Grin That's OK. I think finab knows what he's talking about, and I find it strange that he doesn't get more acknowledgment for it....

    I'm very fond of reading Warren Buffett's letters to shareholders. He's not a dry writer and can give you how a successful investor thinks.
