Kiyosaki’s book was better. The Millionaire Next Door was boring and I only read half of it. It’s because I was already following virtually all his ideas. A good book for naive wanna-be rich folks though. i’m pretty sure most freepers followed the same path as me.
I think that is why it is so popular. It offers something for nothing. It gives very little practical advice. It made Kiosaki rich.
I think Kiyosaki’s a little goofy. I think Dave Ramsey gives way better advice, although I don’t agree with him 100% either.
The followup book “The Next Millionaire Next Door” is better than the original - still a lot of data but more accessible if you aren’t a nerd.
You might like Chris Hogan’s “Everyday Millionaires”.
I used to assign this to my students, mainly because it contained widespread surveys of wealthy people. I also liked “The Millionaire Mind.”
