There are a few select books that come along in a lifetime that completely floor you. They alter your perspective. The affect your thinking on a daily basis. They change your attitude and your mindset. They set you on a different course in your life. One of these 5 books in my life has been Rich Dad Poor Dad. I couldn't recommend highly enough the value and importance of this book. Robert Kiyosaki is a modern day guru with so much knowledge about business, life, and personal freedom. If you are looking to better your life financially, and you don't read this, you're an idiot. Sorry - but it's true.
