Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Robert Kiyosaki founded an international financial education company and invented the board game Cashflow. Sharon Lechter is an accountant who now focuses her efforts on creating educational tools for anyone wishing to better their financial education.

From AudioFile

This installment of an enormously popular series delivers a hefty compendium of ideas, anecdotes, and money management policies that the author claims will change the fortunes of all who are disciplined enough to implement them. The affable Jim Ward guides listeners though the corridors of thrift, wise investment, and reinvestment, occasionally providing case histories and testimonials to validate and motivate. His delivery is sincere but never overbearing, perhaps reflective of the comfortable state of mind one reaches when rich. While some of the content boils down to common sense, the remainder offers listeners credible methods for gaining financial freedom.

Questions from Readers for Robert T. Kiyosaki

Q
Hi Robert! Ive been involved with a few network marketing companies, and none of them has panned out to making me any money at all! I live very rurally and know few people. Extended family is non supportive. My hubby was unemployed for a year, and...

Hello Robin. Thank you for the question. When I get in a situation that feels like a "no win" I do two things: I look at all the failures and all the losses and all the mistakes. I look at them hard and long, then I turn each failure, loss and mistake into a lesson. I learn. Mistakes are the best teachers so I learn a lot. After I've learned my many painful lessons, I reorganize, rethink and revise my opportunity. Then I act. Many times I've had to repeat this cycle over and over. But once learned, you'll never forget these painful lessons that are the keys to your success.

Format: Paperback
Kiyosaki wrote this book as the eighth installment of his Rich Dad Series. The book serves to constantly remind us that the key to increasing our chances of becoming wealthy requires the willingness to the pay the price. Discussing all the get rich schemes, such as game shows or playing the lottery, Kiyosaki writes, "There are better ways to become rich, with much better odds, but most people are not willing to pay the price" (x). The price to pay is the time and money you spend investing in your financial intelligence.

Kiyosaki recalls a truism once observed by Rich Dad, "The only people who think life should be easy are lazy people" (3). Kiyosaki rejects frugality as the best way toward becoming rich. Instead he recommends paying the price for higher financial intelligence, "...another way to become a millionaire is to improve your financial literacy, your financial intelligence, and be willing to be accountable to yourself, your results, your continuing education, and your personal development in becoming a better human being...that was a price I was willing to pay to become a millionaire" (81). Adopting such a mindset becomes tantamount to swimming against the current. Possessing faith and the fortitude to dedicate your life to accumulating wealth in this manner is crucial to overcome such naysayers as friends and family.

Rich Dad also observed, "One difference between a successful person and an average person is how much criticism they can take...Most people feel safer in the herd of the average" (150). Criticism tests one's resolve. You must be willing to make mistakes and to learn from them. Kiyosaki writes, "...the price of becoming rich is the willingness to make mistakes, to admit you made a mistake without blaming or justifying, and to learn" (18).

...unless you've never read any of his other books. Don't get me wrong, I can't say enough good things about Robert Kiyosaki's books. If you haven't read them (Rich Dad Poor Dad, Cashflow Quadrant, etc.), I highly recomemd that you do. But there's nothing new in this book. It just a retread of ideas already presented in his other books, and not as well. If fact, reading it felt like a advertisment for his other books and products.

Format: Paperback
This is the second book I've read by Robert Kiyosaki. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad was the other book I've read). The ideas in the book are so valuable that it amazes me when people saw me read the book they would make comments on how the author is scamming people, making money on false hopes. I asked these people, and there were quite a few, if they read any of the author's books. Of course the answer was always a 'no'. I got the book out of the library, in hopes to build ideas. How are you going to learn becoming rich if you blame the rich for several of the world problems? This kind of generalization seems quite popular and creates a stop of the potential growth people have in ever attaining financial education. Am I rich, from reading this book? Not as much as I would like to be; however, the insight I've obtained is invaluable and is worth the price of the book. I also recommend: 'Think and Grow Rich' by Napolean Hill, 'The Secret of the Rich' by Ken Roberts and 'The 7 most Important Areas of Your Life' by Dr. Erwin Jay.

Powerful! Powerful! Powerful.
That is the best way I can describe this book by Robert Kiyosaki. If you are tired of hearing how you have to cut up your credit cards to prevent debt then you must read this new book by RTK. It is his best ever!

Format: Paperback
First I'd like to say that in large Kiyosaki has some great ideas, and two of his books (the 1st rich dad poor dad and cash flow quadrant) were interesting reads. Unfortunately, this one isn't one of them. If this book was a set of new ideas or even just compilation of other works it would have been pretty good.

Sadly, this book just serves as one big advertisement of all of his other products, such as his board game, which he dedicates almost a full chapter for advertising it. There are glimmers of good information, but most of it is very vague.

To summarize, I wasn't very happy buying and reading a paperback commercial. I would recommend his other books, but I'm not sure I even have respect for the author anymore.

This handbook has some key advice wrapped up in the Kiyosakian story telling his readers have become familiar with. It is a great book to start out with if you have no interest in the others, and a good book to share its debt reducing tips with friends. Simple things like, don't use ATMs that charge money. You're paying to use your own money. You're better off getting cashback, or using a check if you can.

I am in the process of listening to books on CD as my job involoves a good deal of driving. I listenend to Rich Dad / Poor Dad and was invigorated. I decided to add this book on CD to my list. I just got done with it and actually skipped many parts as i felt that it was strictly a vehicle to promote other Kiyosaki products. There were really no new ideas in this book. Don't waste your time or money.

and more facts and more facts. Well you get the picture. No matter what Kiyosaki writes, his basher will write some trash about it. Facts are in Kiyosaki wins again. That Kiyosaki basher loses again and again and again and again. Well you get the picture.
If you really think that cutting up your credit cards is the answer to wealth, then I suppose you believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny too.
