I've read about half of the book "Rich Dad Poor Dad" and I'm totally addicted. Not because its an interesting story about romance, mystery or anything, but because what I've read so far has made me change my way of thinking and changed my map of my future life. I'm going to go into details about what the book touches about, but basically the author teaches people to "understand the difference of accumulating assets and liabilities", and to "understand the importance of financial literacy". Its something like taking accounting lessons, but in a different way. Its more of an insight into the reality of the financial world. Haha. I really suck at explaining this, but all I can say is that I really really recommend this book. Its a pretty worthy investment at only $18 or so. If you want to get the book at a cheaper price, now would probably be a great time. Great Singapore Sale in full swing. Discounts everywhere! Haha. Plus, CD-Rama, Popular and Harris are having a 20% discount storewide thing at Orchard MRT because its their moving out sale. I bought my copy from Harris at only $14. Haha. Here's a warning though. If you're not someone who has accounting background, or if you're taking accounting and having a hard time understand the subject, then you will have to take some time to understand what the author is trying to tell you. I'll do a full and complete review of the book as well as put in some of my personal reflections when I finally finish the book. Hopefully that would be by some time next week.
