Is Rich Dad Poor Dad worth reading?

One of the best-selling personal finance books in recent memory is Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki. The cover even proclaims it to be “the #1 personal finance book of all time!” It was first published in 1997 and is estimated to have sold over 40 million copies. It is currently the 6th best seller in this category on Amazon.

The poor dad in the title is Kiyosaki’s biological father. He went to college, valued safe investments, and encouraged Robert to work for others for pay and benefits. Rich dad was the father of his friend, and he brought Robert under his command. He doesn’t want to work for money. He wants his money to work for him.

Because of these exact attitudes and philosophies about money, Kiyosaki explained, his poor dad was poor and his rich dad was rich. He lists examples of financial changes for each father throughout the book.
