About the Author

Donald J. Trump, Chairman and President of The Trump Organisation, continually sets the standards of excellence while expanding his interests in real estate, sports and entertainment. From his role as star and co-producer of the NBC hit series The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice to his award winning golf courses and skyscrapers, his business acumen is unparalleled. An accomplished author, Trump has authored over ten bestsellers and his first book, The Art of the Deal, is considered a business classic. Trump is the archetypal businessman - a deal maker without peer and an ardent philanthropist. Robert T. Kiyosaki, best known as the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad. Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. He is an entrepreneur, educator and investor who believes the world needs more entrepreneurs. With perspectives on money and investing that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage.

It may look like a fresh book filled with new ideas to anyone who's just discovered Trump or Kiyosaki; Those who read their previous titles, there's hardly anything new. The book still has value, good ideas and refreshers, but I'm starting to think that all they are doing is luring you in with a new shiny cover and a promise that you will discover something new. Some will be gullible enough to fall for this trap. Not a bad read, but it sure does look like they are not even trying any more. They both made good brands out of their names. They will milk that cow until it's dead.

After reading just two chapters of this book, I knew it was going to be a winner. I therefore decided to put a highly recommend post for the book on two entrepreneur listservs I belong to. The remainder of the book did not disappoint me either.

I highly recommend this book for several reasons:

First and foremost, this book is about entrepreneurial mindset or frame of mind. This book is not about how to run a business. I found this perspective particularly valuable as I am currently personally shifting my mindset from that of being an employee to that of an entrepreneur.

Secondly, this book looks at the changing nature of the U.S. economy and how entrepreneurs must position themselves for success today and in the future. In this regard, I was reminded of the book title, What Got You Here, Won't Get You There

Thirdly is the discussion surrounding the Business- Investor Triangle which illustrates the 8 Integrities of Business. While this concept might not be new to some readers, what makes this information valuable is the discussion regarding how the entrepreneur should approach the triangle.

Finally, there is the discussion about what it takes for the entrepreneur to move from self employment to a business status as defined by Robert Kiyosaki's CASHFLOW Quadrants.

I found the book to be a quick, engaging read. Based on their experiences, Trump and Kiyosaki have identified five key factors of entrepreneur success. Each of the key success factors is a chapter in the book. Trump and Kiyosaki believe that to achieve success, today's entrepreneurs must master all five factors or attributes.

Format: Hardcover
Donald Trump's and Robert Kiyosaki's book, Midas Touch: Why Some Entrepreneurs Get Rich--And Why Most Don't (Plata Publishing, 2011), is targeted at "people who are entrepreneurs or those who would like to be." It is not their first collaboration; in 2006, they co-authored "Why We Want You to be Rich" ("one message--two authors").

The book is organized around the metaphor of a hand, with each finger representing an important trait or principle for the entrepreneur. The thumb stands for character, the index finger for focus, the middle finger for branding, the ring finger for relationships and the little finger for "little things that count."

One merit of the book is the interleaving of the perspectives of Trump and Kiyosaki. You might think this kind of book would be ghost-written, at least by Trump, but the authorial voices sound authentic. In each chapter, both have their say--with Kiyosaki opening, and Trump responding--and there is some reference by each to the other's experience.

And yes, the two men do have things in common, including having had rich fathers whom they have since greatly surpassed in wealth [recall that Kiyosaki is author of the bestseller, Rich Dad, Poor Dad (2001)]. Neither Trump nor Kiyosaki could rightly be called "self-made" men, but both are self-invented. It seems to be mandatory in the self-help genre to have overcome extreme setbacks, and both Trump and Kiyosaki have plenty of that kind of trial to tell about

When we discuss the capabilities of the successful entrepreneur, the outer triangle of this diagram lights up. The entrepreneur must be a gifted generalist, who understands how to build a team, lead and execute on the corporate mission.

If you've read the "Rich Dad" book, don't waste your time reading this book unless you want to read a few interesting stories and get good advice from The Donald.

Robert's writing is really poor: choppy, boring and predictable. Donald's writing is very good and interesting. The problem is that about 65% of the writing in this book is Robert's, therefore the two stars.

I have been reading Kiyosaki's books all along since Rich Dad Poor Dad and following his development as he has come along. His teaming up with Donald Trump in his Midas Touch brought together a fantastic set of "wiggy information" which to my way of thinking is one of the greatest books to date on learning to get out of the rat race. Please congratulate them both for me and send them a "Feliz Navidad" from down Mexico way. And please congratulate yourselves (Amazon) on fast efficient courteous service. God Bless you all !

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was a solid business refresher by Donald Trump. The reason I call it a refresher is because it really was very similar to many of the Donalds other business books. However, as usual, the advice given was very good and practical. As always this book along with his others, serve as a good motivational tool.

What lifted this book to me was the fact that I was introduced to Robert Kiyosaki for the very first time. Having never read his other famouse books, this was the first time I ever heard his experiences or advice. I was very impressed with his writing and thought that he made a great reading partner with Trump. It mixed up the flavor of the book which made it highly enjoyable.
The focus of the book was broken up into five easy tools to succeed while each tool was discussed by both authors. This kept the reader entertained and into it.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and think that it is a good book for people that are interested in business motivation. Its also an easy read where someone can be able to read it in a few easy and enjoyable sittings.
I highly recommend this book to all businessmen.
