Best-selling author Robert T. Kiyosaki has built an empire of financial advice books. The titles of many of his popular books feature the words “Rich Dad.” Kiyosaki – writing here with consultant and CPA Sharon L. Lechter – presents the lessons in those books in the form of a literary seesaw: He had two fathers. His real dad was educated but poor, and his second dad (his best friend’s father) was self-made and rich. Both taught him life lessons that reflected their individual character and experience. One was a fearful loser and died owing money. The other was a self-made, bold winner, who left money to charities and to his family when he died. The two men’s diametrically opposite attitudes – loser/winner, small timer/major leaguer, scaredy-cat/big bad wolf – provide the narrative journey that Kiyosaki travels to instruct readers about financial planning as he was instructed.
