Kiyosaki grew up in Hawaii, where his father (his poor dad) was the head of the Department of Education. His best friend's dad (his rich dad), was a multi-million dollar business owner and investor. Kiyosaki's poor dad was well-educated on all topics, but not on financial literacy. On the other hand, Kiyosaki's rich dad was not educated beyond high school, but understood how to make money work for him. The main focus of Kiyosaki's books is on the mentoring he received from his rich dad.
