Brief Summary: Smart Dad, Dumb Dad is a parody of Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad, Poor Dad. The subtitle, Why the Rich Are Smarter Than You--And What You Suckers Can Do about It! summarizes the satiric th... rust of the book. Full Summary: Rich Dad, Poor Dad and its many sequels have sold over twenty million copies and dominated the bestseller lists for years. Thousands of people around the world belong to Rich Dad clubs. They meet to discuss the books, play the related board games, and enroll one another in multilevel marketing. Robert Kiyosaki also offers seminars, mentoring, and other services and has won awards and praise throughout the world. Many readers report feeling uneasy about this book but are unable to say exactly why. Though I will confess to being swept along by its compelling story at first, I think I can now sum up what people find disturbing about it: [It is smug, cruel, and condescending. [It exaggerates the importance of attaining money and status while vastly understating the cost of achieving them. [To top it off, it's a pack of lies. Although Kiyosaki published it as nonfiction, he apparently made up a tremendous amount of it from whole cloth. He didn't actually have a rich dad mentor and more likely than not has made the bulk of his fortune by telling other people how to get rich. [All of the above might be forgivable if the advice given to the hopeful reader were sound. Reputable real estate investor and author John T. Reed says, This is one of the all-time worst financial books ever written! It contains much wrong advice, much bad advice, some dangerous advice, and virtually no good advice. It is, however, a damned good yarn. Rich Dad, Poor Dad is a financialcoming-of-age story. It describes the lessons that the author learned as a boy from his so-called poor dad, who was educated but did not understand money, and contrasts them with lessons from his rich dad, who had little schooling but great financial savvy and success. The reader is given the benefit of the great wisdom passed on by the rich dad, a marvelous and inspiring character whom Kiyosaki appears to have invented. The primary audience for my book is this existing fan base. They are literate enough to enjoy a parody, and many of them will already be annoyed by the original. This spoof will also appeal to the thousands of people who have had Rich Dad books thrust upon them by well-meaning friends and colleagues, and anyone who has ever been annoyed at self help or get-rich-quick books.
