You do not know, what you are talking about!!!
First and foremost, this book is not to be taken as an exact map for you to become rich. You took the whole book on face value. If you were listening to the tape or read the book then you would have heard or read where he says so.
This is the problem, assuming that you are in middle class, which commonly search for an answer but when dignified with one, you chose not to accept it .
To answer,"His advice on making money via IPOs is completely wrong; you can't invest that little money so close to the IPO filing for such a large discount."
Are you educated in that field of study or anyone who has a negative out look on this amazingly written book, to prove him wrong using facts?
This comment stood out the most, "
Fourth, his emphasis on making money. I like money, don't get me wrong. Like most people reading this review, I'd like to be a millionaire. But, I think, there is an underlying current of meanness in Kiyosaki's book. The way his "rich dad" kept people waiting and intimidated them with his power, the way Kiyosaki himself resented being left out of the parties held by the "rich kids." It's disturbing."
The part in the book or tape, which i have, is the point that you missed. He made them wait to prove a point, remember, he said, " I am not going to teach you classroom style, but the way life teaches you.Life is not play mean or nice, life is just life.
