      Just finished the Rich Dad series by Robert Kiyosaki.

      To summarize, these books advocate the importance of being involved in investment and business-making rather than being an employee in one’s life. The books are based on the real story of the author, hovering about the influence he had had from both his real father who was described by him as poor dad in the story, and his best friend’s father


      who was described as rich dad. The author’s real (poor) dad was not actually poor, but was just relatively financially dependent on a job to survive. Poor dad was a highly educated person, having master degree in education and have great post in the education system of Hawaii. Although being clarified in the story that Robert respects his poor dad so much, poor dad is described as a pathetic character in the story. In contrast to all these, rich dad who is business/investment-based was described as a much better and respectable character.

      Probably I am personally more educational-based, I feel that putting poor dad in such a position would be unfair/unrealistic. Rich dad who is a great businessman or investor could have possibly earn a lot more than a education worker does, but is job all about money? There ...

      is some controversy here, earning money is not incorrect, but there is more vital thing to be one’s mission rather than just aiming for money. Alright, maybe most people would want to make big money, but there are more important goals other than this. Every job has respective mission in completing the society, doctors to save lives, teachers to nurture lives, engineers to make lives easier and so on,
      so forth.

      Well, apart from the author’s bias on his dads’ position, I do totally agree that these books are some really nice source for financial education. From these books, I gained good insight into some intelligent financial thoughts and various ways to increase income without having much tax to be paid. I would strongly recommend these books to everyone, especially to students nowadays who lack good exposure to financial management.
