Questions from Readers for Robert T. Kiyosaki

Hi Robert! Ive been involved with a few network marketing companies, and none of them has panned out to making me any money at all! I live very rurally and know few people. Extended family is non supportive. My hubby was unemployed for a year, and...

Hello Robin. Thank you for the question. When I get in a situation that feels like a "no win" I do two things: I look at all the failures and all the losses and all the mistakes. I look at them hard and long, then I turn each failure, loss and mistake into a lesson. I learn. Mistakes are the best teachers so I learn a lot. After I've learned my many painful lessons, I reorganize, rethink and revise my opportunity. Then I act. Many times I've had to repeat this cycle over and over. But once learned, you'll never forget these painful lessons that are the keys to your success.

This book is very direct with no fluff, just straight talk for people that's ready to get their head out of the sand.

One of my most favorite sayings is "you are getting what you are getting, because you are doing what you are doing"

Just a quick thank you to Robert for his latest work. I find it inspiring. Of course, I would, because I have been a student of Roberts since 2008. I have attended 5 or 6 of his workshops in Scottsdale, and read most all of his books, over those years. Today I am a free man(at 57, not a spring chicken), with a free family. When I first became engaged in the Rich Dad philosophy, I was buried in debt, some good, but mostly bad, and had no idea how I would ever be able to retire, but today with Rich Dad and Roberts help, I am happy to report that I now have about 10 times more debt - but it is all good debt. What makes it good debt, is it all pays for itself(cash flow deals and businesses), and it pays me and my family too. 16 projects and counting. Who knows what 2011 will bring, but we have already surpassed what we accomplished in 2010 - and 2010 was a fantastic year, and it is only APRIL! Thanks Robert and the whole Rich Dad company. I can never repay you, but I can pass it on.

To those that cannot bring themselves to accept these teachings, or reject them as "won't work for me", or "B.S." or whatever, I am going to pass on to you the most important thing you will ever hear - and I learned it from a lifetime of learning. It goes something like this: "if you think it won't work for you, or if you think it will, you are right!(author unknown to me - but this theory is proven every day by me, and you, and everyone else)(by the way this also applies to everything in life - another incredibly liberating truth not taught in schools)

Embrace life, and learning, and growth.

I've read most of Robert Kiyosaki's books. One by one, they connect the dots to help me understand what financial literacy really means to me on an individual level. What this book includes that others do not is the Unfair Advantage of Compensation, in particular, leveraging the power of compounding learning. For those of us who beat ourselves up as "late bloomers", this is a revelation!

I agree with the low star reviewers that say there is not much new here. I am a huge Robert Kiyosaki fan but I can not rate this book above 3 stars.

I have read the entire Rich Dad series and while there is value in repetition some of his books are head and shoulders above the rest while others have a "time for another book" feel to them. This book is in the 2nd category.

Kiyosaki has a way of writing that really does suck you in and makes for an enjoyable read on what could easily be very dry and boring subjects. He opens this book with a metaphor about hunting monkeys who cant let go of fruits and nuts. The comparison is to people (employees) who can not let go of the old world and now out of date ideas that we have all grown up with.

Without a doubt this is important information to read, know, and understand.

My feeling is the value of this book is in the repetition.

If you are a Rich Dad fan and have read Rich Dad Poor Dad, Cashflow Quadrant, and Conspiracy of the Rich, you can safely skip this one.

If you are new to Rich Dad and have not read the earlier works you might get more value.

At the Rich Dad Forum a couple of years ago Kim Kiyosaki revealed that Rich Dad Poor Dad was originally meant to be a pamphlet to promote the Cashflow 101 board games. Many of the earlier books emphasize the importance of getting and playing the Cashflow 101 game.

In this book Robert seems more interested in promoting the Rich Dad Education classes and Coaching programs than in really offering any new information.

On the other hand, for $10 and the couple of hours it takes to read this book you will be reminded of the core Rich Dad philosophy.

So, I give Unfair Advantage a mixed review.

Again, this will have more value to you if you are a Rich Dad newbie. Veterans can safely skip it or borrow a copy.

Best of luck in Escaping the Rat Race!

"The plantation system is alive and well, even in the information age"
Robert T. Kirosaki Unfair Advantage: The Power of Financial Education.

I have been a fan of Robert Kiyosaki since I read his book Rich Dad / Poor Dad in 2008. I was late coming to the party; I'd not known how the monetary system worked until after the crash. I was looking for answers and read over a hundred books from the "Wealth of Nations" by Adam Smith to Jim Cramers "Real Money". A friend told me about Rich Dad and I got a copy. It was different, but like many new treatments you have to expend effort to get the full effect of the "medicine". It changed the way I look a wealth, business and the world. I have read several of his other books to boot.

I was fortunate not to have lost anything in the markets as I had cashed out to speculate in flipping houses. I was also fortunate to have sold my flip house two weeks before the housing market melted down. I saw it coming and didn't try to get what the house appraised, but made a nice profit anyway. I was lucky.

I was lucky because I didn't know what I was doing. I was being tossed on waves of media hype and misinformation, being led down the primrose path to financial Armageddon. Many of the books I had read on real estate and investing were cookie cutter manuals designed to provide training a particular field of investing. Buy duplexes or trailer parks or sell options out of the money, it was useful information, but didn't really have a vision. Most were expressly designed with "safety" in mind or "low risk". Just follow the examples above and all of you dream will come true. I will quote the famous investor Jessie Livermore ... "NOT".

Rich Dad's books do not offer such ideas or advice.
