Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Like many other business books on the market, Kiyosaki's latest explains the origins of the economic crisis and how best to weather the storm and restore financial standing. But its clarity, hands-on approach, and practical tips make it far superior and user-friendly than its competitors. By offering bonus PDF charts and graphs, Kiyosaki allows listeners to go one step beyond the average audio book. Mallow gives a solid reading that conveys the material in an accessible, user-friendly manner stripped of theatrics to highlight the sound advice. Mallow's tone—serious but accessible, informative and never preachy—yields a sober and sincere performance that does the material justice. A Grand Central hardcover (Reviews, Sept. 21). (Oct.)

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 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.

First of all, I'm not a Kiyosaki fan...his style of writing just tends to annoy me however, he is one of those authors that is able to effectively communicate with the average person and often has one or two gems that make it worthwhile to read his books. Having said that, this book is a bit different than his others both in terms of content and style. It is primarily compiled from his website which by this point, is both a work in progress as well as a day by day breakdown of the current economic crisis unfolding as history. The book contains comments by readers of the website/blog as well as more traditional insight and commentary by Kiyosaki et al.

As a college instructor as well as business writer, I'm quite familar with authors that "try out" or compose a book from class notes, lectures, journal submissions and articles etc...but few have used an online format as a pure marketing ploy to generate both interest and actual content. I suspect it takes a highly recognized name and a major economic melt-down to pull it off. Sales of this book will certainly determine if it is pure genius or merely a gimmick.

Aside from the collaborative nature of the book, the actual writing retains the same consumer friendly, conversational tone found in former "Rich Dad" books with the very pleasant lack of constant reference to the "dads" which was a personal pet peeve. Personally I found this to be more readable than most and equally interesting.

The author departs from the prior "real estate" emphasis into a much broader investment perspective which includes precious metals and other assets, proper use of debt, information and much more. I was fairly impressed by both the rationale and future trends as well as the very "do-able" information presented.

This remarkable book is filled with factual information, both current and historical, and although that information may discourage or frighten some readers the book is written in such a casual style that it is almost as if its story is being told by your best friend. Only, in this case your friend actually knows what he is talking about. It is a great read, and the information it conveys is simply too valuable to miss. I only wish such books had been available forty or fifty years ago.

In any event, if you are a product of America's public school system, you may very well have asked yourself, as I once did: "What have I learned in my twelve years of school that will help me get a job?" That's certainly an interesting question, but, strangely enough, the answer is far less important than the question itself. For that question reveals a mindset that has been instilled in America's children by our public education system, by conventional wisdom, and, in all probability, by almost every student's parents for generations. Namely: Get an education, get a job, work hard, buy a house, save for the future, and someday you will be able to retire and live happily ever after.

That mindset, according to this book's author, has doomed generations of Americans to a lifetime of hard work with little chance success, leading many to someday ask themselves: "Why is it that I have a good education and work hard at my job, but I never seem to be able to get ahead?

Considering R. Kiyosaki is a wealthy man from his other books he is really providing a patriotic service to our country. As a student of the banking system and money in general, he does expose the fundamentals of who "prints" our money and to the private organization a large part of our federal taxes feed.

Because of his platform and fame, he really is exposing himself to risk on this one. He's really connecting the dots. I'm sure those in control will not appreciate this being in the mainstream. He clearly states that change isn't coming with Obama (or any President, rep. or dem) and we'll have to be the change. This book operates on this fundamental... in order to break the rules, you have to know them well. You need to know the fallacies of the "old" rules of money before you can apply the "new" rules.

This book will open your eyes to what money really is... shouldn't you know what most of the world goes to work for every day?

Pick this book up while you still can.

Thanks Robert for all of your books. My life has never been the same since reading Rich Dad Poor Dad. He has steered me clear of the "Rat Race" pitfalls most people fall into.

You want to know the secret to salesmanship? Agree with your customer philosophically so that he thinks you're a kindred spirit. Then when his emotional defenses are down, sell him garbage.

I thought that this would be an interesting book because I'm libertarian and anti-Fed, but it all came apart when it dealt with personal investment advice. And that was the reason to read it, wasn't it?

Let's get something straight. The banksters want you to go into debt. They manipulate the credit cycle to charge interest in boom times and foreclose in bust times. There's no such thing as 'good debt.'

The author emphasizes cash flow, and then he gives as example how much of his income is derived from royalties and licenses on his books and games. Now how is that supposed to apply to the rest of us?

About the only applicable advice he gives is to rent out properties for more than you pay in mortgage payments. Wow, never heard of that one before. I wonder what would happen if the renters couldn't pay. Hmm.

In the Author's vision of America, nobody actually produces anything. Instead, they simply make investments. The author pretty much comes out and says that anyone who works for a living is a chump. How food, clothing, housing, appliances, health care, electricity, etc., are to be provided when everyone is busy playing cash flow games is not explained. America may not want an explanation, but China is wondering.

It's a good introduction. Not too terribly in depth though, but it provides great insights for anyone new to the topics written about.
