Although I read this book over 15 years ago, I still consider it to be one of the most influential books of my life.
Robert Kiyosaki is still very active in the money scene and nowadays he's involved in all sorts of subject matter. However, this is one of the most popular money books of all time. And for me, it was one of the books that pushed me into becoming self employed and eventually a full time investor.

One of my favorite money books by far. It will change the way you see "Rich People" forever. I think the best thing about this book is it will enable you to see through the facade of those people who spend money they don't have to impress people they don't know.

Crap news I know. But T. Harv is here to straighten you out once and for all!
This book is all about you hacking into your beliefs about money, being rich, rich people and all the rest that go on that list. Harv will open up your beliefs and help you to expose all the wrong and broken ideas that you've taken on from your parents, your school, your TV and all the other silly places we accidentally take our learning from.

T. Harv has been teaching money and mindset for decades. He was one of my gurus in my early days and I truly owe a lot of my success to his teachings.

As always, please let me know how you go.
