Not too long ago, I wrote a post called “Are We Fools For Saving Our Money?” The inspiration for it came from several themes I read in the book “Unfair Advantage: The Power of Financial Education” by Robert Kiyosaki. Although we explored both sides of Kiyosaki’s opinions, I felt as though there was still quite a bit of the book to review and I wanted to do it justice. So here is my book review.
In case you’ve never read anything by Robert Kiyosaki, here’s a brief overview: Take on massive amounts of debt, don’t save your money, and the future of our economy is in deep trouble! Now why in the world would I recommend reading a book like that?
Because it reminds me that there is more than one way to become independently wealthy! Robert Kiyosaki, best known for writing “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”, proves that you can obtain great wealth by using unconventional strategies. Although I may not necessarily agree with all of his advice, it still intrigues my curiosity. Plus – he makes A LOT more money than you and I, so we should probably listen!
Love him or hate him, Robert Kiyosaki’s books are very popular because they are easy to follow and very “in your face”. They do a great job of convincing you that anyone can do what he does and that you’re a fool for not following his principles. And who wants to be a fool?
