book: RICH DAD POOR DAD. Pages: 26. author: Robert T. Kiyosaki with Sharon L. Lechter, CPA.

this book is very different from the one that i read last time. this time the book starts out by a mothers view. a mothers view by saying how she told her kids to go to school, and to get good grades. that’s apparently the wrong thing to say to your kids. also in this book so far, it tells how school gets you like ready for the future, but that’s not enough. school needs to teach kids about how to use money wisely, how to learn about outside world things before they get into it. schooling is not enough. the other part of the book that i read was about the author guy. he had 2 dads. one was rich, and one was poor. one dad went to Stanford University, he University of Chicago, and Northwestern University to do his advanced studies, all on full financial scholarships. the other father never finished the eighth grade. when the author was 9, he had 2 dads giving him advice, but he decided to only listen to the rich one. for 30 years he listened and now he is pretty well off. the dad taught him 6 lessons that has helped him in every day life.

it made me think… which dad went to colleges, and which dad didn’t finish the 8th grade.. The poor dad was the one who went to all of those colleges. and the rich dad was the one who didn’t pass the 8th grade level…. both dads had a saying… “i am poor because i have you kids”.. “i am rich because i have you kids”.
