A different view of investing than most people have: it takes a plan to be a successful investor. And a plan is more than simply buying and selling, or collecting "assets" that bring in no cash and are thus more akin to liabilities. The way most people invest, "they might as well be pushing a wheelbarrow in a circle," he writes. A plan is "mechanical, automatic, and boring," a formula for success that has worked historically for most of those who've used it.

"I have often wondered why useful and relevant courses are not taught in our schools such as the importance of budgeting and balancing a checkbook, dangers of credit card debt, how compound interest works, and investment choices. I was pleased to discover in Rich Dad, Poor Dad that Robert Kiyosaki feels the same way. Education has not kept up with our rapidly changing world and Kiyosaki believes that the gap between the haves and have-nots in our society is widening. As his book and ideas get more media attention and widespread discussion, perhaps educators will take note and promote changes in school curricula to include courses leading to financial literacy."

Communication is the foundation of society, of our culture, of our humanity, of our own individual identity, and of all economic systems. This is why networks are such a big deal. Communication is so close to culture and society itself that the effects of technologizing it are beyond the scale of a mere industrial-sector cycle. Communication, and its ally computers, is a special case in economic history. Not because it happens to be the fashionable leading business sector of our day, but because its cultural, technological, and conceptual impacts reverberate at the root of our lives.

The stories in the book are entertaining; they are reminiscent of some of the parables in the Bible, such as the Prodigal Son or the story of the Workers in the Vineyard. I think this is intentional on the part of the author; certainly readers in the 1920s had an appreciation for "old fashioned stories with a moral" that people today seem to have lost. I enjoy the book greatly, though, and any thoughtful person who reads the book should find it interesting, especially if they are trying to get their finances in order.
