Before you quit your job

Robert T. Kiyosaki is the author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad. I listened to the abridged audio version of the book.

There is maybe one chapter's worth of information in the book that is really helpful to individual's who wish to quit their day job. The book is primarily targeted to people who want to make the leap into entrepreneurship. Kiyosaki intersperses personal experiences of his ups and downs in business. It may be worth reading to learn about his experiences so that you can avoid them yourself. BUT, if you are looking for guidance, you will have to weed through the stories to get to the meatier info. The audio book summarizes the essential steps of what to do before quitting in just a few minutes at the end of the book.

There is one confusing thing and perhaps it's because it was audio and not print. Kiyosaki takes you through a personality profile to see if you are a likely candidate for entrepreneurship. The problem is he assigns letters to the various profiles and then uses those letters throughout the text. I didn't really get it and couldn't really refer back to them as I listened. So in that sense, the audio book is not very good.

The books I select for review are books which I personally select from my local library. I do not receive any reimbursement from authors or publishers or free books. I do provide links to Amazon as a convenience to the readers of this blog. I do earn a small referral pittance which is not even enough to buy a soda.
