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.

Format: Paperback
I've read Robert Kiyosaki's famous Rich Dad Poor Dad, and I now count Kiyosaki's ideas as some of the foundation for my financial knowledge. In this book, the Rich Dad sequel, Kiyosaki writes, "Are you financially free? [This book] was written for you if your life has come to a financial fork in the road. If you want to take control of what you do today in order to change your financial destiny it will help you chart your course."

From there, Kiyosaki introduces the "cashflow quadrant," depicted on the book's cover. The general idea is that we are all in one of four quadrants: Employee, Self-Employed, Businessman, or Investor. From there, Kiyosaki explains that financial freedom comes from moving from the left side to the right side, becoming a businessman or an investor.

One criticism of Kiyosaki's books is that once you've read one, you've read them all, and that idiom largely holds true here in Cashflow Quadrant. The goal is to increase your "passive income" so that it exceeds your expenses. Once you've accomplished that, you're financially free to live however you choose.
This book starts with great potential -- where I was stimulated to think differently about my job and my financial goals -- but the book quickly becomes repetitive, and I found myself skimming many of the pages.

Ultimately, the book's core principal -- seek to increase your passive income, so that you're not always slaving away for money -- is a good one, but it is quickly grasped, leaving much of the book as excess. If you can find this book cheaply or at a library, I'd recommend reading the first few chapters, but don't buy this one new because you won't need to reread it.

This is the second book in the Rich Dad series and is just as good as the first (if you haven't read Rich Dad, Poor Dad then I recommend reading that first as you'll get more out of this one). What Robert gives you is a new way of looking at the world and how you fit into it and a new way of thinking about your life and what you want from it. If you enjoyed reading Never Work Again then you'll get a lot out of Cashflow Quadrant - the philosophies are very similar.

First let me start off by saying what I like about the Rich Dad series of books:
I like that this book has been as popular as it has been. I think it has inspired a lot of people to learn about personal finance and how to build wealth. This is a very good thing.

I would caution people, because a lot of the advice given in these books can be dangerous. The problem is these books don't actually give any solid advice on anything covered in these books. These authors sound repetitive and vague in each and every book. They repeat short one liners about how to build wealth, mention that anyone who wants to get serious talk to a finance adviser, and vaguely talk about how the authors got rich.

If you are just starting out on reading personal finance and investing book and need an easy read, this may be for you. If you have already gone through a few books and want real information, I would skip these books over.

Format: Paperback
Rich Dad's Cashflow Quadrant is the sequel to Rich Dad/Poor Dad. While not as groundbreaking as its predecessor, Cashflow Quadrant does introduce some very important concepts that can help you shift your mindset. The basic premise of the book is that there are four types of income earners: Employees, Self-employed, Business Owners and Investors. The concept that impacted me most was that there is a significant difference between being self-employed and being a business owner. Being self-employed means you have created a JOB for yourself...but you are not enjoying the same passive-income fruits that a business owner would. It's definitely a book that I wish I had read 20 years ago. Complaints: By the time you finish the book you will be really sick of the quadrant "logo" and there are too many generalities and not enough specifics. An insightful essay about how to achieve financial freedom, but painfully lacking in specifics. Worth the read, but don't expect too much.

Cashflow Quadrant is repetitive and lacking in any real information that people can use, but that is precisely how the book is designed to be. It is designed to get you to go to richdadeducation.com and sign up for a free webinar, after which you will be encouraged to sign up for a $90 course, after which you will be encouraged to spend thousands of dollars on non traditional education, which he talked a lot about in this book. Rich Dad Education is a scam and should be avoided. They work by giving you just enough information to think it's easy and to think that if only you had a little more information you could be successful, but it's all a scam. If you start googling what little detail they give you, you'll find out how deceptive their methods are. STAY AWAY

This book is a great read for anyone looking to change their life financially. Robert has a way of changing people's paradigms and belief systems about how wealth is made. Hint: it's not working a 9-5 job every day. His take to the educational system too is spot on; today's schools do not each people the life's most crucial skill - how to accumulate money, get wealthy, and achieve financial freedom for oneself. I highly recommend this book, and I have bought several copies for those close to me.

Buy this book and read it quick, and keep reverting back to it. Get to the B and I quadrants in your life. Good Luck!
