Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."

Throughout the book, which revolves around a boy of a poor dad who is learning financial education from a friend’s dad who he says his rich dad, the idea of personal finance and experience on successful investment-ventures flows continually. In addition to that the author also talks about the philosophy and mindset one needs to be in to become rich, also sharing with us some of the financial loopholes of the system to make money.

However, what the book lacks behind is telling us about where should we not make mistakes. There are number of ideas and experiences that the author shares about money making, but doesn’t share any idea of how to identify the opportunity, but he indicates to his other books that could help, (clever marketing robert), that was the part where it got a bit hung over to me. Everyone knows money can be made in stock markets and real estates, but to crack up those deals and get those cheap out of the court settlements may only be peculiar to America, might not be workable in India, China or Philippines for instance.

The philosophies shared about saving and investing are of great help, however the instruments to invest in was never introduced, i think I’ll be doing good with my steady growth mutual funds. If someone knows of that 16% income instrument with low risk, please tell me.
But, as of now the first steps are always the hardest and slowest, working to build on the idea of wealth generation, just as a child takes its first steps.

Book is good to read once and get something home from it, i think everyone will have something of importance in this book. Try it, you won’t regret it. 7.5/10 decent

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Inglorious Empire written and read by Shashi Tharoor. In the 18th century, India's share of the world economy was as large as Europe's. By 1947, after two centuries of British rule, it had decreased six-fold. The Empire blew rebels from cannon, massacred unarmed protesters, entrenched institutionalised racism and caused millions to die from starvation.

An argument that is undeniably unconquerable.

An unconquerable argument against the doings and wrong doings of the colonial rule in india, by a company that backstabbed the economy, in which they came to do business themselves, to accomodate their own vested interests. The author captivates the audience with his arguments and the reasoning behind it backed by the examples.

All in all, everyone, who wants to know what and how it was to be living in the era of darkness for any indian, should read/listen to this marvellously articulated book. Also, of course, to know why the English can't run away from admitting their complicity.

A MUST READ!!!

To know how this world came to be as we see it , the communities, cities, countries, nations, capitalism, religion, extinction of species, and much much more than you would’ve expected or imagined for our world in the past.

A must read book, for everyone. Highly recommended by me.
