This is an anywhere and anytime read as it comprises of very short stories that create paradigm shifts. Houdini accepted the challenge when he was invited to unlock the door of an escape-proof jail on the British Isles as he was a better locksmith than a magician. The people left him to do his work. After preparing for several hours and getting totally exhausted he leaned against the door only to find it open. The door was never locked, it was only locked in Houdini's mind.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad By Robert Kiyosaki
Robert Kiyosaki teaches people to be millionaires that is why they call him the millionaire school teacher. The book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, does a fantastic job teaching people how to think about work and money. One theme that’s apparent in this book is that for an individual to be wealthy, he must aim to own the system or means of production, rather than work for another individual. The author stresses that there is obviously something confining about being an employee; it blocks the mind to other possibilities and it inhibits initiative.
Having been on the bestseller list for a long, long time, Rich Dad Poor Dad is an absolute juggernaut of a book. It has some really great points, like how rich people know how to make money work for them and how everyone else works for money. The first chapter is pure magic and class and also has one of my favorite quotes from Rich Dad Poor Dad is one which says:
“Most people never study the subject [money]. They go to work, get their paycheck, balance their checkbooks, and that’s it. On top of that, they wonder why they have money problems. Few realize that it’s their lack of financial education that is the problem.”
This book will
·         Explore the myth that you need to earn a high income to become rich
·         Challenge the belief that your house is an asset
·         Show parents why they can’t rely on the school system to teach their kids about money.
·         Define once and for all an asset and a liability
·         Teach you what to teach your kids about money for their future financial success.
All in all it’s a definitive must read for everyone. 
Ø  The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money. The result is that people learn to work for money but never learn to have money work for them         .
                              -Robert T. Kiyosaki (Author of Rich Dad, poor Dad)
Ø  I love my children and want to ensure they get the best education possible! Traditional schooling while very important, is no longer enough. We all need to understand money and how it works.     -Sharon L. Lechter, C.P.A (Coauthor of Rich Dad’s Cashflow Quandrant)
Ø  Rich Dad, Poor Dad is a starting point for anyone looking to gain control of their financial future.                                                                                                                                                                                    -USA Today
Ø  To get over the top financially, you must read rich dad poor dad. It’s common sence and market savvy for your financial
