Author : Robert T. Kiyosaki
Rich Dad Poor Dad is a book by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter. It advocates financial independence through investing, real estate, owning businesses, and the use of finance protection tactics.
It is written in an anecdotal manner and is aimed at creating public interest in finance. Kiyosaki and Lechter stress the advocacy of owning the system or means of production, rather than being an employee as a recurring theme in the book`s chapters.
The book is largely based on Kiyosaki`s upbringing and education in Hawaii. The book highlights the different attitudes to money, work and life of these two men, and how they in turn influenced key decisions in Kiyosaki`s life.
