More About the Author

Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad - the international runaway bestseller that has held a top spot on the New York Times bestsellers list for over six years - is an investor, entrepreneur and educator whose perspectives on money and investing fly in the face of conventional wisdom. He has, virtually single-handedly, challenged and changed the way tens of millions, around the world, think about money.In communicating his point of view on why 'old' advice - get a good job, save money, get out of debt, invest for the long term, and diversify - is 'bad' (both obsolete and flawed) advice, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage.Rich Dad Poor Dad ranks as the longest-running bestseller on all four of the lists that report to Publisher's Weekly - The New York Times, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today - and was named "USA Today's #1 Money Book" two years in a row. It is the third longest-running 'how-to' best seller of all time.Translated into 51 languages and available in 109 countries, the Rich Dad series has sold over 27 million copies worldwide and has dominated best sellers lists across Asia, Australia, South America, Mexico and Europe. In 2005, Robert was inducted into Amazon.com Hall of Fame as one of that bookseller's Top 25 Authors. There are currently 26 books in the Rich Dad series.In 2006 Robert teamed up with Donald Trump to co-author Why We Want You To Be Rich - Two Men - One Message. It debuted at #1 on The New York Times bestsellers list.Robert writes a bi-weekly column - 'Why the Rich Are Getting Richer' - for Yahoo! Finance and a monthly column titled 'Rich Returns' for Entrepreneur magazine.Prior to writing Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert created the educational board game CASHFLOW 101 to teach individuals the financial and investment strategies that his rich dad spent years teaching him. It was those same strategies that allowed Robert to retire at age 47.Today there are more that 2,100 CASHFLOW Clubs - game groups independent of the Rich Dad Company - in cities throughout the world.Born and raised in Hawaii, Robert Kiyosaki is a fourth-generation Japanese-American. After graduating from college in New York, Robert joined the Marine Corps and served in Vietnam as an officer and helicopter gunship pilot. Following the war, Robert went to work in sales for Xerox Corporation and, in 1977, started a company that brought the first nylon and Velcro 'surfer wallets' to market. He founded an international education company in 1985 that taught business and investing to tens of thousands of students throughout the world.  In 1994 Robert sold his business and, through his investments, was able to retire at the age of 47. During his short-lived retirement he wrote Rich Dad Poor Dad.

Robert Kiyosaki has built several multimillion dollar businesses. As such, he is a good person to objectively critique the business of network marketing. In this book, he lays down the reasons why network marketing is the best way for the average person today to build a significant asset that will permit them to live and retire in freedom.

He spends the first half of the book explaining why the old path to Industrial Age financial success -- "get a good education, find a good job, work hard for forty years, invest in stocks and real estate, etc." -- no longer works in the Information Age. The second half of the book explains what network marketing is, what it is not, and why it is the best option to create personal income security today.

Kiyosaki lends his substantial credibility to this much-misunderstood business to clear away the misconceptions that keep many prospects from joining. He demolishes objections one by one so that those who are determined to succeed in "The New Economy" will see that only network marketing offers all the benefits of a huge business, with none of the risk, expense, and complexity.

Network marketing is a revolutionary business format that relies more on communication, leadership, and team-building skills than it does sales skills. It doesn't require a college education or large investment to build a six-figure (or higher) income. There is no glass ceiling. There is no need to abandon a J.O.B. to start a network marketing enterprise.

This is the book to give your best prospects and team members The Business of the 21st Century.

With so many people looking for something better in their life but skeptical of "better offers" this is well worth a listen. I am new to Network Marketing after 23 years of owning a brick & mortar retail store. What I've noticed when I show network marketing to others is that they like it, but do not trust their gut that this really is a amazing vehicle for building wealth. This CD helps gives credibility to people with antiquated ideas of what network marketing is and it helps them make the leap to begin their path to financial freedom. I buy these in quantity and hand them to anyone considering network marketing. I am so grateful to Robert Kiyousaki for creating it and writing the book. "The Business of the 21st Century"

The Business of the 21st Century by Robert Kiyosaki because;

This is a quick read, well written, well balanced view of Network Marketing and how it fits into the economic environment of 2010 and beyond.

There is a strong thread of personal responsibility - or as I like to call it - personal "Response-Ability" throughout the book which will go a long way to dispel the get rich quick myth often associated with network marketing. The quote; "The economy is not the issue - the issue is you!" has been our Team's mantra for nearly 12 years now.

I especially enjoyed the last chapter where the author sees our industry as an instrument for increased world peace and prosperity, and for the revitalization of America - because participation is truly a level playing field and who you become in the process of building your own business is the ultimate reward.

Live with Intention,

Kiyosaki has written the best book on NWM I've ever read. It's written in plain language, and although there is little here I've never heard, I understood the whole concept for the first time in 15 years. I recommend it to everyone who is interested in the concept of network marketing.

I absolutely LOVE this audio CD by Robert Kiyosaki, who talks about why network marketing works for those who put in the effort. He shares very insightful perspectives making this an audio cd that you do not tire of listening to repeatedly.

Outstanding! I'm not quite finished with the book however it portrays the network marketing industry in a GREAT LIGHT! I'm very excited to be 'currently' reading this book (well into Part Two) and it will be used as a tool for my teams 'book of the month'. Believe it or not the book for the month of March was 'Rich Dads Conspiracy of the Rich'... :-)

This book is a no-brainer if the question pops up in your mind IF you should get it... GET IT!

Robert and John really provide a view of the industry from the 'top-down', from the mind of one in the B quadrant...and that is the best possible standpoint to view network marketing. I thank Robert and John for their insight and HONESTY about this business and their encouragement to the reader that if they want to 'change addresses' and move from the left side to the right side of the quadrant- into the B quadrant, than network marketing is a great start in BUILDING a B quadrant business that will turn into a real asset in just a few years...

Thanks Robert, thanks John...
