Personal-finance author and lecturer Robert Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective through exposure to a
pair of disparate influences: his own highly educated but fiscally unstable father, and the multimillionaire
eighth-grade dropout father of his closest friend. The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his "poor dad" (whose
weekly paychecks, while respectable, were never quite sufficient to meet family needs) pounded home the counterpoint
communicated by his "rich dad" (that "the poor and the middle class work for money," but "the rich have money work for
them"). Taking that message to heart, Kiyosaki was able to retire at 47. Rich Dad, Poor Dad, written with consultant and
CPA Sharon L. Lechter, lays out his the philosophy behind his relationship with money. Although Kiyosaki can take a
frustratingly long time to make his points, his book nonetheless compellingly advocates for the type of "financial
literacy" that's never taught in schools. Based on the principle that income-generating assets always provide healthier
bottom-line results than even the best of traditional jobs, it explains how those assets might be acquired so that the
jobs can eventually be shed. --Howard Rothman
