For the past few days, we have been hearing about price hikes, inflation, and how the Mauritian consumer is now having less purchasing power… Amidst this environment, we are now becoming more careful about our income, expenses and investments. Influenced by all of the latter, Afm’s book pick for this week is Rich Dad Poor Dad, by Robert Kiyosaki.
Many of you have surely read Rich Dad Poor Dad before, but for those who haven’t, the book is known to be “the best personal finance book of all time”. Robert Kiyosaki shares his experience and lessons about money and investing in a very candid way.
Written in 1997, Rich Dad Poor Dad has been a bestseller, with sales reaching over 40 million copies. It celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017 by publishing a 20th anniversary edition.
It is to be noted that Robert Kiyosaki had a literary collaboration with Donald Trump in 2006 called “Why we want you to be rich, two men one message” with a second book called “Midas Touch: Why some entrepreneurs get rich, and why most don’t” in 2011.
If you want to read Robert Kiyosaki’s take on how to make your money work for you, grab your copy of Rich Dad Poor Dad at any Bookcourt shops.
