  • Joel Ngwesa

    They are all good at money, but Robert Kiyosaki’s style is the best in persuading someone to leave the old thinking about money. Go to school, get good grades, get a high paying job with nice benefits is an obsolete advice that many parents teach their children.

  • I’m 71 and I’ve been studying investing for about 30 years, and Jeff Yeager’s “The Ultimate Cheapskate”, a book that isn’t even about getting rich, is the freshest, best look on the subject I’ve seen. He has one small chapter on investing, the last one in the book I think, that is the simplest, most sound investment advice I’ve ever read. But it’s Jeff’s whole other way of looking at money and financial freedom is takes the prize. Thanks, Jeff!

  • adedayo

    Jeff Yeager teaches us how not to spend money foolishly or unnecessarily by reusing & recycling which in turn puts more money in our savings account.

  • Dafiri Scott Irimagha
