I don't get how this book is so famous with such a following. Full of low level self-help "fluff" without any real substance.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

The Freebies forum has been moved to "Hot Deals" now apparently. Free dollar store gloves, neti pots, free pdf's, free apps and 1930's how to get rich books all qualify for Hot Deal status in 22'.

TLDR the book:

Get a job, get some money. Buy stocks when cheap, sell when high. Buy property, rent out, use income to buy more property. After a bunch of years, be rich. Amirite?

You get it. They don't.

Some people also summarize these books as:
Be smart, lucky, and work hard.

Foolish misrepresentation.

Their flippant response to life changing financial success is one of their worst self-sabotaging habits.

This is one of the worst self help books I've read. I couldn't make it through the whole thing. There are a lot of repetition of ideas throughout, and many are outdated and made more sense in the 1900s than now. This book is also controversial. Apparently, Hills never actually met any of the people he proclaimed to have learned from in this book. But I think I understand why so many successful people highly rate it; back then, there just wasn't that much in the genre of self help.

If you want good books, go for something like "the slight edge" from Jeff Olson or the power of habit by Charles Duhigg. They are much more refined and modernized.

If you have zero knowledge about money, how to make it, and/or how to manage it, and you don’t know where to start…..you could start here. It costs you nothing. *BAM, first lesson in growing and thinking rich. Class is in session.

Read it in 2006 back in uni, useless book. Basically says to obsess about money to get rich...well, no shit. For those who make it, they can say it was due to this book =/. I just see this as an early/primitive self-help book, all fluff, no substance, but in 1937 style without the obfuscation.
I would put Rich Dad Poor Dad over this one.

But free is free.

I think this current equity and bond market decline is unprecedented. Only USD is winning, maybe along some low P/E and select energy stocks.

Oh we've had this happen before, the 1970s. What is unprecedented is the amount of debt. Gold dominated in the 1970s and 2000s, when stocks went no where. But bonds didn't collapse in the 2000s. Past doesn't predict future so who knows.

I don't think too highly of Robert in the integrity department, but Rich Dad Poor Dad isn't a bad book. Not too actionable like Think and Grow Rich, but at least he provides a realistic paradigms with which to think about wealth (Asset vs. Liabilities in a pragmatic sense, and cashflow quadrant). Napoleon Hill just lists desire, if I remember correctly.

But RDPD isn't free like this book, well, technically all books can be free through various kinds of libraries...

I quoted him incorrectly. Replaced it with the link with the following summary. So I buy BTC at $20, gold at $250, silver at $10? I will be waiting haha.

Robert Kiyosaki expects stocks, bitcoin, gold, silver, and real estate to plummet in price.

The "Rich Dad Poor Dad" author urged investors to be bold and buy discounted assets during a crash.

Kiyosaki has previously advised stockpiling cans of tuna and baked beans to get ahead of inflation.

Ok, that's a good article lol. I like the comment, exactly what I was thinking. He's right this time, that's because he's not trying to sell you something lol.
I'm stockpiling sardine cans lol...And they're going up in price which is pissing me off. Trash bags is interesting, especially after Trudeau is banning single-use plastics.

There's something called a permanent portfolio which uses 25% gold, 25% stocks, 25% long-term bonds, 25% cash. It doesn't make a lot, but it hardly takes any damage. The Sharpe ratio is pretty good, so you can leverage it in low-rate environments. I always wondered why it had 25% cash. They said it was for situations where governments deliberately create a recession to control inflation, which I thought was unfathomable because of the amount of public debt out there. Now the cash allocation makes sense. I tried to get rid of cash at the earliest opportunity into stocks, I'm bag holding =/...
