Full title - Rich Dad's Guide to Investing: What the Rich Invest in, that the poor and Middle Class do not! - Plata, Scotsdale, AZ., 2012, 470 pgs., paperback


Reviewer comments -
This book is a follow on to the author's original Rich Dad Poor Dad. It is mostly a motivational book, the author slowly develops the concepts for learning how to become wealthy by leading the reader through the steps one has to master while repeatedly asking - are ou interested and willing to make the effort? - Then he presents a basic primer course that descrbies some of the actual tasks. The style is mostly a conversation between the author, as he is becoming an adult, with his 'rich dad' and then, as a successful adult, with others. These include students in his seminars and other experienced investors. The content is a bit repititons on purpose to drill the fundamentals into the reader. The author reveals that he has become a successful and wealthy business man who can retire from daily work since his 'money is making money' for him. Rather than do nothing useful, he is devoting his time now to education of as many people as possible in how to become wealthy. He writes these books, gives lectures, creates seminars, and designs 'games' as teaching vehicles.
The chapter titles serve as an outline of the contents.
