It was not an immediate success

When Rich Dad Poor Dad book was launched in 1997, it was not an immediate success although it made The New York Times bestseller list by the year 2000 and stayed on that list for nearly seven years. 

Before self-publishing, Many publishers also criticized Robert’s rich dad’s lessons and turned him down for publishing his book. Some of them even called it illegal.

After 20 years, Rich Dad was right

In 1997, Rich Dad Poor Dad was a warning, a book of lessons about the future. 20 years down the lane, the lessons provided by rich dad proved to be right.

Some of the best lessons that I personally admire are :

  • The rich don’t work for money
  • Savers are losers
  • Your house is not an asset
  • Why rich pay less in taxes

 Is Rich Dad Poor Dad worth reading?

Rich Dad Poor Dad is an absolute juggernaut of a book. It teaches about money, investment, and entrepreneurship that almost all the schools, universities, and institutions neglect.

It mainly focuses on investment. 

The book revolves around Kiyosaki’s two fathers, one of them was his biological father – Poor Dad, and the other was his best friend’s father – Rich Dad.

It was not the earning that differentiates them but the way of thinking. They both were successful in their respective careers. His rich dad whom he considered as rich, because of the way he thought about money and investment, eventually became one of the richest men in Hawaii.
