1. Rich Dad Poor Dad
April 2017 marks 20 years since Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad first made waves in the Personal Finance arena.
It has since become the #1 Personal Finance book of all time… translated into dozens of languages and sold around the world.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert’s story of growing up with two dads — his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad — and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.
20 Years… 20/20 Hindsight
In the 20th Anniversary Edition of this classic, Robert offers an update on what we’ve seen over the past 20 years related to money, investing, and the global economy. Sidebars throughout the book will take readers “fast forward” — from 1997 to today — as Robert assesses how the principles taught by his rich dad have stood the test of time.
In many ways, the messages of Rich Dad Poor Dad, messages that were criticized and challenged two decades ago, are more meaningful, relevant and important today than they were 20 years ago.
As always, readers can expect that Robert will be candid, insightful… and continue to rock more than a few boats in his retrospective.
Will there be a few surprises? Count on it.
Rich Dad Poor Dad...
• Explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to become rich
• Challenges the belief that your house is an asset
• Shows parents why they can’t rely on the school system to teach their kids about money
• Defines once and for all an asset and a liability
• Teaches you what to teach your kids about money for their future financial success
2. Rich Dad's Cashflow Quadrant
Rich Dad’s CASHFLOW Quadrant is a guide to financial freedom. It’s the second book in the Rich Dad Series and reveals how some people work less, earn more, pay less in taxes, and learn to become financially free.
CASHFLOW Quadrant was written for those who are ready to move beyond job security and enter the world of financial freedom. It’s for those who want to make significant changes in their lives and take control of their financial future.
Robert believes that the reason most people struggle financially is that they’ve been spent years in school but were never been taught about money. Robert’s rich dad taught him that this lack of financial education is why so many people work so hard all their lives for money… instead of learning how to make money work for them.
This book will change the way you think about jobs, careers, and owning your own business and inspire you to learn the rules of money that the rich use to build and grow their wealth.
3. Rich Dad's Guide to Investing
Investing means different things to different people… and there is a huge difference between passive investing and becoming an active, engaged investor. Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing, one of the three core titles in the Rich Dad Series, covers the basic rules of investing, how to reduce your investment risk, how to convert your earned income into passive income… plus Rich Dad’s 10 Investor Controls.
The Rich Dad philosophy makes a key distinction between managing your money and growing it… and understanding key principles of investing is the first step toward creating and growing wealth. This book delivers guidance, not guarantees, to help anyone begin the process of becoming an active investor on the road to financial freedom.
4. Rich Dad’s Guide to Becoming Rich Without Cutting Up Your Credit Cards
There are “financial experts” who advise people to take out their credits cards and cut them up. And that may be a good plan for someone who is financially irresponsible, it’s not great advice for someone who wants to build wealth and become financially free. Cutting up your credit cards won’t make you rich; learning to leverage and manage debt will.
If a person has a solid financial education they will know that there are two kinds of debt: good debt and bad debt. A person who understands debt will know how to use good debt to make them richer faster. And when we take control and learn to manage bad debt, seeing it for what it is, and understanding the toll it can take if abused, we are on the road to financial freedom.
Learn how to make your money work hard for you… instead of you working hard for money all your life. Understanding debt and how to use and leverage it is an important first step.
Knowing how to transform conflict into collaboration affects the outcome of every interaction, challenge, and opportunity.
5. Rich Kid Smart Kid
RICH KID SMART KID is written for parents who value education, want to give their child a financial and academic head start in life, and are willing to take an active role to make it happen. In the Information Age, a good education is more important than ever. But the current educational system may not be providing all the information your child needs. This book was designed to fill in the gaps: to help you give your child the same inspiring and practical financial knowledge that Robert Kiyosaki’s rich dad gave him.
6. Rich Dad’s Prophecy
The rich know that times of greatest crisis are often the greatest opportunities to acquire wealth. In this book, Robert Kiyosaki teaches how to build your financial ark to navigate turbulent economic waters. In hindsight, the title itself seems “prophetic,” as the insights and predictions in this book have played out on the world stage over the past years. Rich Dad’s Prophecy will open your eyes to the issues that are affecting the retirement plans of baby boomers as well as the financial futures of their children and grandchildren.
7. Retire Young Retire Rich
If you don’t plan on working hard all your life… this book is for you. If you’re ready to retire (or want to retire early enough to enjoy your retirement years) you can learn from Robert’s story of how he and his wife Kim started with nothing and ‘retired’—financially free—in less than 10 years. This book makes the case for how a context shift in the way we think about money and investing allows us to see opportunities others miss and create the life you deserve.
8.Rich Dad’s Who Took My Money?
Learn what financial advisors don’t want you to know!
Robert’s rich dad often told him: “The faster your money moves, the higher the returns and the lower your risk.” Conventional financial wisdom recommends that you save money and invest for the long term. In other words: park your money.
That was not rich dad’s advice. He taught Robert to increase the velocity of my money. And, even if you start small, it’s advice that anyone can follow and benefit from.
9. Rich Dad Poor Dad for Teens
You’re never too young to learn the language of money… and the lessons that rich dad taught Robert. Like it or not, money is a part of our everyday lives and the more we understand it, the better the chance that we can learn to have our money work hard for us—instead of working hard for money all our lives. That starts with learning the language of money.
This book, created from the international bestseller Rich Dad Poor Dad, shares Robert’s inspiring person story but teaches how to make smart choices. Packed with straight talk, sidebars, and quizzes, this book will jumpstart a child’s personal and financial success by teaching: How to speak the language of money, ways to make money work for you, tips for success (including: “Work to learn, not to earn.”), and why games can help you understand money, investing, and ways to choose your best path to financial freedom.
10. Rich Dad’s Before You Quit Your Job
When Before You Quit Your Job was written and published, it was a guidebook for aspiring entrepreneurs. Today—with the job market in shambles, overseas outsourcing, and high unemployment—it can be a path to the salvation so many are looking for: A way to take control of their life and use their skills and talents to create their future.
Before You Quit Your Job asks: Do you have a million-dollar idea? Are you afraid of failing? Are you tired of making other people rich? Are you sick of taking orders from your boss? Are you tired of working hard and not getting ahead? Are you ready to take a leap of faith and change your life?
Learn about the B-I Triangle and the 8 Integrities of a Business—before you quit your job!
11. Rich Dad’s Escape from the Rat Race
This full-color graphic novel poses the question: “Go to school, get good grades, get a good job and invest in a 401(k)?” Not today!
That’s an outdated formula for success that hasn’t adapted to the Information Age. Escape the Rat Race is the story of Tim, Tina, and Red and their entrepreneurial pursuits as they learn about money. Key messages include: How to create assets and how to make your money work for you—so you won’t need to work hard for money all your life.
12. Rich Dad’s Increase Your Financial IQ
Many of our global economic problems started in 1971…when President Richard Nixon took the U.S. off the gold standard. Throughout history, when a government went off the gold standard, an age of turbulence began.
In 1997, Robert’s book Rich Dad Poor Dad stunned readers stating, “Your house is not an asset.” As howls of protest went up around the world, the book went on to become an international bestseller and the #1 personal finance book of all time.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is not a book on real estate. It is a book about the importance of financial education. Rich Dad Poor Dad was written to prepare you and your loved ones for the financial turbulence Robert’s rich dad saw coming.
In 2007, as homes declined in value or were lost to foreclosure, millions of homeowners painfully discovered the wisdom of words of Robert’s rich dad. Today we are all aware that a home can be a liability. Today we know a home can go up or down in value. Today, we all know a person can lose money investing in the stock market. Today we all know our money can go down in value and that even savers can be losers.
This is why financial intelligence is more important today than ever before. In a world of financial turbulence, your best asset is financial IQ.
13. Rich Dad’s Conspiracy of the Rich
In late January 2009, Robert Kiyosaki launched CONSPIRACY OF THE RICH – a free online book that was written on a serial basis to help people understand how the current recession came about, and what they need to learn on how to survive through the coming rough years.
An unprecedented publishing event for Kiyosaki and The Rich Dad Company, CONSPIRACY OF THE RICH is an interactive, “Wiki-style” project in which Kiyosaki has invited feedback, commentary, and questions from readers across the globe.
The response so far has been totally fantastic. Millions and millions of readers have flocked to the website (www.conspiracyoftherich.com) to read what Robert has to say about the recession, and the readers have posted thousands of comments. Some of those reader comments will even be included in the final trade paper version.
14.Why “A” Students Work for “C” Students and Why “B” Students Work for the Government
Kiyosaki expands on his belief that the school system was created to churn out ‘Es’ / Employees… those “A Students” who read well, memorize well and test well… and not the creative thinkers, visionaries and dreamers –entrepreneurs-in-the-making… those “C Students who grow up to be the innovators and creators of new ideas, businesses, applications and products.
The book urges parents not to be obsessed with their kids’ “letter grades” (“good grades” might only mean they or the student themselves were successful in jamming a square peg into a round hole…) and focus, instead, on concepts, ideas, and helping their child find their true genius, their special gift. The path they can pursue with love and true passion.
Robert showcases success stories of “C Students” who grew up to be phenomenal successes – and HIRED those “A Students”(attorneys, accountants, and other school-smart specialists) to work in their businesses… while the more average students, “B Students,” often find themselves in government-type jobs…
Not surprisingly, Kiyosaki will coin his own definitions of what “A,” “B,” and “C” stand for as he gives parents and their children bits of wisdom as well as insights and tools for navigating an ever-changing world… an Information Age world where the ability to change and adapt, understand relationships and anticipate the future will shape their lives.
15. Going to Extremes | By Cass R. Sunstein
In Going to Extremes, renowned legal scholar and best-selling author Cass R. Sunstein offers startling insights into why and when people gravitate toward extremism. Sunstein marshals a wealth of evidence that shows that when like-minded people gather in groups, they tend to become more extreme in their views than they were before. Thus when liberals groups get together to debate climate change, they end up more alarmed about climate change, while conservatives brought together to discuss same-sex unions become more set against same-sex unions. In courtrooms, radio stations, and chatrooms, enclaves of like-minded people are breeding grounds for extreme movements. Indeed, Sunstein shows that a good way to create an extremist group or a cult of any kind is to separate members from the rest of society, either physically or psychologically. Sunstein’s findings help to explain such diverse phenomena as political outrage on the Internet, unanticipated “blockbusters” in the film and music industry, the success of the disability rights movement, ethnic conflict in Iraq and former Yugoslavia, and Islamic terrorism.
Providing a wealth of real-world examples–sometimes entertaining, sometimes alarming–Sunstein offers a fresh explanation of why partisanship has become so bitter and debate so rancorous in America and abroad.
