About the Author

Kim's business career began in advertising, and her entrepreneurial spirit emerged shortly thereafter. She launched her first business venture in 1984. Since then she and her husband, Robert, have built several successful companies, the latest, along with partner Sharon Lechter, being The Rich Dad Company best known for the bestselling book RICH DAD, POOR DAD. Kim began her investing career in 1989. After her first investment she soon realized that investing would be her road to freedom, and she pursued it fervently. Today she controls millions of dollars of investment property as well as other investment assets. A businesswoman and investor, Kim is passionate about teaching women the importance of investing and taking control of their financial futures. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From AudioFile

The first book for women in the Rich Dad, Poor Dad series does not depart from the informal and direct style familiar to readers of the other titles. The work is targeted at helping women demystify the world of investing, understand personal finance, and accept responsibility for their own lifelong stability. Kim Kiyosaki's choice to narrate the book herself makes the anecdotes about the dark moments in her own journey to financial independence more believable and accessible. Kiyosaki's overall message--that the investing market doesn't care about the gender of the investor--is aided by her frank and relaxed delivery. Without depending on a father or husband to take care of her--a woman who invests wisely prepares for even the most unexpected life events.

I know I was harsh in this review but it was only because I really expected a lot more from this book and really really wanted to like it.

I'm like many of the statistical women described in the book who found themselves living well while married and then found themselves divorced and broke with little to show for years of sacrifice and hard work. It was then I discovered how dependent I had become on someone else to provide for my financial future. I call it "marital welfare" -- and I do agree that we are a culture of dependent creatures -- and this fact usually smacks a woman right in the face through circumstances she least expects. Part of rising above all of this has been a dawning awareness of how important it is to take the financial responsibility for my future into my own hands. Kim Kiyosaki has put into words what has already been placed in my heart -- it was the "you're on the right track" message that I needed to hear to further my resolve -- not just in finances but in every area where self-sufficiency needs to evolve. The good news is that I am remarried to someone who supports my financial plans, goals and dreams and shares in the excitement. This book does not give a step-by-step how-to, but what it does do is bring about a birthing process that can literally change your life because it provokes you to change how you VIEW your life. For many people, that's all it takes, and in that regard, this book has accomplished wonders.

When I first saw this book I was immediately excited. The rich dad philosophy directed specifically at women?? Where do I sign up? But then I started reading... and kept waiting for it to get better. Then I told myself I would give it one more chapter and then one more. It never did. This book was just plain bad. It was not only bad but the book undermined my intelligence. Are there really women out there who don't even know the bare minimum basics of investing and money? And if they don't, do they also need some long drawn-out narrative story with cliche "women stories" just to keep them interested?

This book was just plain terrible. There is very little actual investing information. It's basically a lot of cliche money advice sprinkled in with Kim's extensive story of her and her girlfriends' quest to become financially free (which honestly bored me to death and also made me question how someone like Kim Kiyosaki managed to find a fan club of women who know even less about money than she does that she can preach to).

I also couldn't believe that Robert co-signed on this book! (He had to have, right?) Why didn't he tell her how bad it was or at least how she could fix it! I mean it's easy to see what they wanted to do with this book. Let's empower women and teach them how to take the initiate with their money and not leave it all up to a man...We get it. But come on, it's 2008, give us women a little more credit. We're not idiots. We know what CASHFLOW means Kim!?! I know I was harsh in this review but it was only because I really expected a lot more from this book and really really wanted to like it. (I really did..)

This was not the book I expected it to be, but it has won me over. Kim isn't saying that the mechanics of investing are different for women, but the motivations, rewards and value of investing groups are. That's why there's so many references to "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" etc. - go there to learn more about pure investing.

This book is about defining yours goals, motivations and getting some tips - and if you DO SOMETHING you're probably going to succeed. The stories of the group of friends are sometimes distracting, but they serve an important purpose of letting you identify with situations - activating your empathy and getting the message across. Much more effective than a dry, objective HOW-TO book. I'm telling my friends about it!

"RICH WOMEN is a great book for men!" Men, buy this book for the women in your life. Women have the potential to be excellent business people and with training and practice can beat men at their own game. Most have a subtle advantage over men and don't have to deal with the big ego problems of having to, "know it all." They just want to be winners and successful. Many just don't know where to start or how to get help. RICH WOMEN is a great start and savvy guide to financial freedom written for women.

Format: Paperback
Kim Kiyosaki shows she's the real deal with this book. I read it with my wife and absolutely loved Kim's perspective and how she kept the theme around her long time girlfriends; the ups and downs, etc and interjected sound fiscal rationale into the life of each one. Of course, we also learned that some folks just won't listen and just won't learn - even if they agree with a great idea; they just can't make the commitment to change. I really enjoyed her comment early on (after explaining the changing reallization of womanhood from our 20's to our 50's) that "Its a waste of time to think that men will change. Its time for us women to change". If you get nothing else out of the book, at least try to understand the six reasons why women 'must' be involved in investing (such as avoiding dependency and increasing self-esteem). Kim defines the keys (and the best way to make immediate changes) as arming yourself with some fundamental finance education, starting out small, always put some cash down, and stay close to home (at least at the beginning). Of great importance is her succinct rule that "Its your choice!" If you seek financial "dependence" then you are accepting that someone else will be responsible for your financial well-being. However, if you seek financial "independence" then you are opting for "long-term freedom over short-term comfort." This book is about understanding the need to make the change, making a commitment to change, seeking financial independence, and making decisions between cash-flow or capital gains in your investments. Control your finances to build your self-confidence. When it comes to financial planning, there's nothing more important to believe in -than yourself!
