This book comes from the ‘Rich Dad’ series of books and specifically targets women. Unsurprising with such a title! When I first read it, I confess to approaching it with skepticism, but it was much, much better than I had expected.
Kim Kyosaki’s writing style is completely different to husband Robert’s and the book is, I think, better for it. But then, I am one of the target audience, so it has obviously worked for me.
Rich Woman tells the stories of a few forty-something female friends, about why they have not taken much notice of their financial affairs (you won’t be surprised to hear that one of the top reasons is “not enough time“), about their fears, objections and challenges, and about which investing routes they ultimately decide upon.
For us girls, there is a lot of familiar stuff in here. I confess to resonating strongly in the past with fear and with leaving financial matters to the man in my life. Having picked the book up again recently, it was nice to realise that I had actually got a lot further in the years since I read it first.
Girls – if you haven’t read this book, get it now! There is stuff in here you need to know.
