Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Author: Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter

The main focus is to provide financial intelligence to people. It has some unconventional teachings. The byline of the book is that if you like something and you can’t afford it, always ask yourself how you can afford it. Similarly he says that from your monthly salary you should take out your pocket money first and they pay the bills. Not because he doesn’t think paying bills is important but so that if you’re short on money and still have to pay bills  you’ll exercise your mind to earn more money. The book is filled with examples of how he used every opportunity to his benefit.

I think it’s an excellent book to read! On the financial aspect it was too aggressive for me to absorb but I felt that those teachings could be applied to any dimension of your life. And of course if you were keen on getting some financial gyan then  this is the book for you. Apart from hard work, the only other thing that I’ve found common in the advice given by all successful people.
