Shonnabella's review of: Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids about Money -- That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!
I don't often read books that have to do with any sort of financial message, but this one was given to me from someone I respect very much and who's life I greatly admire. Amazingly enough I read it voraciously and have decided to keep it in my library, which I do not often do, as I like to pass books on.
One of my favorite quotes from this book is:
"Physical exercise improves health, mental exercise improves wealth, laziness destroys both." To this day, I still have it written on my mirror and it has inspired me to work hard everyday. I appreciated the way this book was educational AND inspirational. The book touches upon corporations and how they amass their wealth; it also teaches you to look at what you have differently and how it made me reflect on my own financial behaviors. I know this book is highly revered by most talk show hosts and a lot of financial gurus too--for good reason! I'm glad I read it before I had any children. It has really made me take a much more proactive stance in how I will raise them, once they're here ;)
