Rich Dad Poor Dad audio book review
I read this book while in an entrepreneurial phase. For one thing, it's quite inspiring, in the style of John Madden. You see, John Madden always makes things look easy, and maybe that's how he trained the Raiders for the superbowl. He'll say something like, "What they have to do here now is score a touchdown. I think if they can do that, they'll change this game." I remember a memorable game in which a quarterback lost contact, and as he and the umpires searched for him, Madden said, "Here's a man who can see better when he wears glasses."
When explained in such a simple way, it really does seem like the easiest thing in the world. Unfortunately, one must remember that the 6'5 defense line does not turn around and say "man". The real estate sector is not simpler. There is always a conflict around the corner that trips you up and sends you back to where you started (or, often, down). So while this book gives you great tips like "learning from failure," "doing profitable business," and "working hard for yourself," it doesn't really give you a system or method for making money. This strikes me as a strange irony, as this book is clearly aimed at people who are not smart enough to realize that they must "work hard and not give up" if they want to be successful, but who are smart enough to be successful. to be able to do it. find out all the rest of the logistics yourself.
There are now additional books that provide much more detailed information, but still tend to fall into similar traps. It seems to me that you are either the self-motivated entrepreneur type or you are not, and that difference will manifest itself often and early in life.
The self-made can use this book, but to continue the projects they are already working on, not to start their 'dream business' from scratch. There is another option for the marketability of this book, but I don't like to think about it: depressed people who feel like their lives are going nowhere and try to avoid depression by clinging to untenable dreams. For these guys, self-help and New Age books act like a surrogate (or complementary) religion: They bolster their self-esteem and make them feel like their dreams are truly within reach. Then the years pass and the dream does not come close.r himself.
They get depressed. So they pull out this book (or another similar book) and suddenly feel like their millionaire retirement is only 6 months away! This makes them feel cocky and complacent, so they end up doing nothing until they suddenly realize, months later, that they are no closer to their goal. I'm not saying that people shouldn't have dreams, and I'm certainly not saying don't follow them, and I know that people get attached to their denial, but that won't improve your life. Above all, this book is a symptom of the housing bubble cult, for whom housing was never a bad investment: it would never go down and rates would always be more favorable.
It would be good to say that his opinion was naively optimistic. One day, the story goes, Joseph P. Kennedy was shining shoes when the cleaning boy started talking about what stocks were good to invest in. This is what we call 'market saturation' - when an industry becomes popular and all of a sudden it seems like everyone is on board. Kennedy came out before the crash of 29, and a smart investor, seeing how many books and reality shows there were on how to change houses, should have seen the real estate crash coming. Unfortunately, the fiscal prophets of the self-help department could not predict the coming apocalypse; luckily for them, their money was invested in book sales and talks rather than real estate deals that forced others.
I'd like to think these sales would decline after the 'real estate miracle' turned out to be another empty investment bubble, but in these tough times people are even more desperate for the road to economic stability.
Now I know that most of the people who market these self-help (or new age) products (don't say "pedd", don't say "pedd") are not usually scammers. Most believe in what they do; they think they help people; and I hope they sometimes do. However, there is a difference between being a doctor and telling someone they have cancer to help them move on and lying that there is no cancer because it seems "kinder" or "uplifting." The latter is, of course, morally reprehensible (said the atheist). Kiyosaki has built an empire based on this book and made a penny for himself.
