Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki

The book emphasises the value of financial intelligence and the significance of money in our life. It explains how to make your money work hard for you instead of you working hard for money.
Some really interesting concepts are explored in the book. The most interesting ones were the distinction in working to learn and working to earn and the one between assets and liabilities. How the fear of money makes us react to situations rather than confront and think. Money makes us fall in a trap. More money, and the emotion of joy and desire and greed takes over, and people tend to react, instead of think.

The book beautifully expalins the small little ways in which you can come out of this trap and make yourself financially secure and sound. Exploring opportunities which are just around but you never thought of taking..
For me the book, opened up a thought on a value system "Money". A lot of people don't want to admit that money can be a value, but it is. In the age in which we live, we must instill this value of value for money in ourselves and generations following. Running away rather than being aware makes us fall more into the rat race and the trap around.

Catch the story and lets share the takeaways...
