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.

Leave it to Kiyosaki to simplify the complex and make it understandable. I'm one of the "A" students who never could succeed in any of the several businesses I've started or run, while kids I thought were none too bright in high school and college have been far more successful financially. I've helped a number of them become millionaires in their businesses while I managed their finance and accounting matters and they handled the marketing and sales far better than I ever could. Another winner for Rober Kiyosaki.

Love Roberts books and how he relates them to easy understandable language. With having the 1st of 4 kids heading to college I have been immersing myself into the knowledge I need as a parent to help guide them to be successful in whatever that might be. As a parent it is EXTREMLY hard to get your child to think differently about not being an employee. The whole school system is working hard to make sure that they do become employees. My son wants to become a history teacher, and with the current situation and uncertainty about teachers, it really worries me. I then remember in Roberts teachings that your job is your income and investing is your wealth. I have had great success in sharing that thought process with my son. He likes nice things and has a great work ethic so thanks to ALL of Roberts great teachings I see a great future for him.

I am so glad that you wrote this book so my wife can be on board with me as shes reading this now. My wife feels there's security in a job. Shes always been an employee, and thinks thats the right thing to do. It's taken alot of time and effort even through our many successes of owning businesses and rental real estate. She does finally see the rewards from the effort. Also she has had alot of friends whom can't find work even after getting college degrees. Alot of her co-workers have $10's of thousands of college debt making only $12-14 an hour, because thats all they can get. I am so glad that you help guide and educate us that there is another way. Financial education is so important for the world right now with everything thats going on. Please keep the books coming as I am one of your biggest fans...

The short version:

Worst Robert Kiyosaki book to date; from 400 pages, there are probably 10 pages with new material. He quotes a lot of books, and you will be better off reading the original books. Really badly edited and badly written (his books got worst in this aspect after his legal battle with Sharon Lechter and now that they are self-published); for a guy who brags that he is a millionaire, it would cost him only a few thousand dollars to hire a copy editor and get a better written book (Sharon, we miss you!). What is new on this book is that Kiyosaki spends a great deal of time expressing his personal views on politics, which is completely unnecessary and makes no sense to international readers and will probably alienate all readers that are not over-50-years-old Republicans and/or don't watch Fox News. The author continues to write stories that are not true and publishes a lot of factual errors. The title is excellent, but the delivery doesn't work. If you like the title, you should read Kiyosaki's first book, "If You Want to Be Rich & Happy Don't Go to School," which is far better written and deeper (co-written by Hal Zina Bennett, PhD, which makes a huge difference). Curiously enough, Kiyosaki doesn't like to promote his first book, and very few people are aware of this excellent work.

The long version:

First off, I'd like to say that I am a big Robert Kiyosaki fan since 2001, a time that I was struggling financially. I've read all his books and played his Cashflow game a lot, and was able to achieve my financial freedom in 2007. Therefore, I have a huge debt of gratitude to Mr. Kiyosaki, and I have nothing personal against him.

Also, many may think that I am writing a negative review because I can't write books myself.

In this book Kiyosaki discuss the making of a capitalist. He discusses why "A" students those students good in academia are only mere front man for the rich and power. He discuss "B" students as the bureaucrat that make rules that destroy capital. He discuss that "C" students are students how study capitalism. The "C" students Kiyoaski discuss are the real innovators of society Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg are all "C" students. Although some of the people mentioned never completed college they contribute to the betterment of us all. Kiyosaki also challenges parents to enforce financial education to their children. "A" students may be good at academics but the U.S. and the world need more "C" students who study HOW to make money not how to become an employee. This book is an eye opener and it challenged me to do more.

This book had to be one of the most informative yet more fun than any book that I have ever read! NO JOKE! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is questioning whether or not they want to go to college. The book answered that one for me! I know that it's considered a "parents book" but it is basically for anyone who has ever been in school before. (that includes almost everyone) TWO THUMBS UP! :)
