Written by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter in 1997, Rich Dad Poor Dad is based mostly on Kiyosaki’s young days spent in Hawaii. Enriched by Kiyosaki s personal experience and the teachings he received from his rich dad and poor dad, the book highlights different attitudes towards money, work and life. Framed around six main teachings and lessons, the book is mostly a self-reflection. Apart from the financial benefits, the book also describes and highlights the teachings he got from his poor dad, i.e., empathy and responsibility towards society. Described as a personal finance book, it has not only challenged, but has also changed the way people think about money. The book talks about Kiyosaki s background, his business ventures and investments and variation between possessions and liabilities and what importance they both have in terms of starting and owning a business. It also sheds light on the teachings given by rich to their kids, which is usually missed by poor as well as the middle class parents and why it is important to have financial literacy over and above all.
