I’ve read Rich Dad Poor Dad and it’s a primer. The rest of the books by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter (The Cash Flow Quadrant and Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing) are very good books in my opinion. They also have a board game (believe it or not) for sale. Although it’s not the same price as your local Monopoly game at your local game store, it will teach you in a fun way about the subject material you are interested in. Another author from a few years ago is Vanita VanCaspel. She wrote a book called Money Dynamics for the '80’s and Money Dynamics for the '90’s. Those books was also very helpful.
Financial related things are seldom taught in our public education system. Yet it’s such a vital component of our lives as adults.
Have you tried your local community or junior college with regards to any classes on personal finance or beginning investing? There may be some resources there as well. Also I’m sure the Internet has something if you do a search on those specific topics your interested in on one of the better search engines.
Anyway, good luck in your further education and investing.
