I ordered this book with a skeptical outlook. The other financial instruction books I purchased for my teen lasted all of ten minutes. This book arrived, she opened it, started reading, and didn't put it down until finished. She was so excited, she called me at work to tell me she had learned about assets, liabilities, expenses, and income. She said the concepts were so simple, she didn't understand why they aren't teaching this in school. Now, she's pointing out investments to me! Rich Dad actually got the attention and respect of a teenager. I'm very impressed.

Format: Paperback
This is a children's comic book that presents kids with the information that goes way beyond "Save your pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves." There are also subtle lessons on values and ethics, too. It shows--pictorially, using two different styles--how a youngster can put the concepts they represent immediately to work. The book goes well beyond the "save your pennies" philosophy I was raised on. The book introduces terms that some kids never hear until they take their first economics class. I liked the presentation style that looks vaguely like a Tim Allen movie--artistic washes, subtle tones. Kids will love the brightly colored segments. More importantly--for the parents at least--they are sure to absorb some sound ideas about ensuring their own futures. The purpose of the book is clear: the sooner you learn to manage your money, the more you'll have to enjoy.

Format: Paperback
Don't let the comic book format fool you! Money is serious business. But let's face it -- that's bor-ring! Yet Tim Turtle makes a strong case for achieving financial intelligence when he runs out of money at the amusement park. He thinks the answer to his money problems is to get a job. When Red Rat laughs at him and says he'll never get rich by working at a job, poor Tim is totally confused. But isn't that how to make money? Instead Red Rat shows him the difference between working for money and making money work for him. Based on Kiyosaki's bestselling book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad", this comic book adventure into the world of finance brings money issues to life. How to find moneymaking opportunities and create assets are explored in ways that are fun and easy to understand.

Format: Paperback
Robert Kiyosaki's story presents difficult financial concepts in simple English for kids ages 8 and up. The narrative is easy to follow and the illustrations are appropriate to the subject matter. At one point, I felt myself checking my own finances to see if I was on the right track to financial freedom through asset-building versus liability-building!

The book makes readers think about their financial future without resorting to scare tactics. The reader's choice is simple: either continue to run from paycheck to paycheck or create financial building blocks to pave your way to financial independence. The authors warn not to place all your eggs in one basket or spend your pennies on useless junk that will end up costing you more in the end.

The examples are generic with age-appropriate examples such as comic books, bicycles and newspaper routes. The ending is a little overdone, in my opinion, as a child without financial knowledge might not have the wherewithal to open an ice cream stand after one month. Nonetheless, the tone is upbeat and motivating. I highly recommend this comic book for any parent who is willing to help his or her child gain a healthy understanding and long-term relationship with wealth and the benefits it brings.

I bought this book for my 8 yr old brother who wanted to learn about investing (Being that all of his older brothers do it). But he already knows the foundations of investing (surprisingly). So for a kid who doesnt know ANYTHING about investing this would be a great start. Its a very cute comic book designed for kids.

(I rated it 3 stars because theres very little information in this book, but like i said if a kid knows nothing about investing this is a good book)

My 11 year old son really enjoyed this book. It's easy to understand and it's opening him up to a new way of thinking. He is now about to start reading Rich Kid, Smart Kid.

A little slow to start with. The only part I would disagree with, is that education is very important to be able to a) secure enough understanding to be able to recognise opportunities when they present themselves, and also to then make the most of them.
b ) to get a reasonable employment to have some funds or credit behind you to embark on some of the entrepreneurial activities that Robert quite rightly advocates.
