That book is Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad. In it, Kiyosaki basically suggests that if you want to be rich and successful, you’ve got to ditch the middle-class mindset.

Kyla joins us to discuss some of the controversial opinions in this book, which ideas have aged the best, which have aged the worst, and much, much more.
