"Rich Dad, Poor Dad" is a book by Robert Kiyosaki. He tries to challenge some of the most sacred notions of investing, including some that espouses. He advocates non-traditional styles of investing such as tax lien certificates and buying property with zero downpayment and then renting it out. Tends to focus on becoming an entrepreneur the "easy way", rather than working for someone else & investing the surplus.

Some people worship Kiyosaki; others think he's a con man just saying things people want to hear so he can sell more of his books. Some fact-checking has not been able to verify some of the autobiographical details Kiyosaki included in his books -- take what you read with a grain of salt.
