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.

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.

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 !

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.

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.

Once the reader sifts though the ego there is good stuff here - and I'd add a grateful thanks to the authors for emphasis on sharing their expertise and for emphasis on job creation. Other than the referenced sifting my problem with the book (as with ALL who those try to make an connection between combat and sports/business, etc) is a degree of arrogance when people talking about "going to war" in such a semi-casual manner. Donald - you may lose all your money in business, but it is NOT the same as combat. You're not sitting in the Director's meeting watching in horror (while you must not panic) as the person next to you has their face blown open. A sports/business opponent can be defeated, but the enemy does not fall on you bleeding and gasping for air while their eyes beg for the last living moment they will see. I'm surprised the combat experienced Robert allows that to pass. Overall a good easy read for those who want two voices of entrepreneurial advice.
