About the Author

Robert Kiyosaki founded an international financial education company and invented the board game Cashflow. Sharon Lechter is an accountant who now focuses her efforts on creating educational tools for anyone wishing to better their financial education.

From AudioFile

This installment of an enormously popular series delivers a hefty compendium of ideas, anecdotes, and money management policies that the author claims will change the fortunes of all who are disciplined enough to implement them. The affable Jim Ward guides listeners though the corridors of thrift, wise investment, and reinvestment, occasionally providing case histories and testimonials to validate and motivate. His delivery is sincere but never overbearing, perhaps reflective of the comfortable state of mind one reaches when rich. While some of the content boils down to common sense, the remainder offers listeners credible methods for gaining financial freedom.

Format: Paperback
Kiyosaki wrote this book as the eighth installment of his Rich Dad Series. The book serves to constantly remind us that the key to increasing our chances of becoming wealthy requires the willingness to the pay the price. Discussing all the get rich schemes, such as game shows or playing the lottery, Kiyosaki writes, "There are better ways to become rich, with much better odds, but most people are not willing to pay the price" (x). The price to pay is the time and money you spend investing in your financial intelligence.

Kiyosaki recalls a truism once observed by Rich Dad, "The only people who think life should be easy are lazy people" (3). Kiyosaki rejects frugality as the best way toward becoming rich. Instead he recommends paying the price for higher financial intelligence, "...another way to become a millionaire is to improve your financial literacy, your financial intelligence, and be willing to be accountable to yourself, your results, your continuing education, and your personal development in becoming a better human being...that was a price I was willing to pay to become a millionaire" (81). Adopting such a mindset becomes tantamount to swimming against the current. Possessing faith and the fortitude to dedicate your life to accumulating wealth in this manner is crucial to overcome such naysayers as friends and family.

Rich Dad also observed, "One difference between a successful person and an average person is how much criticism they can take...Most people feel safer in the herd of the average" (150). Criticism tests one's resolve. You must be willing to make mistakes and to learn from them. Kiyosaki writes, "...the price of becoming rich is the willingness to make mistakes, to admit you made a mistake without blaming or justifying, and to learn" (18).

...unless you've never read any of his other books. Don't get me wrong, I can't say enough good things about Robert Kiyosaki's books. If you haven't read them (Rich Dad Poor Dad, Cashflow Quadrant, etc.), I highly recomemd that you do. But there's nothing new in this book. It just a retread of ideas already presented in his other books, and not as well. If fact, reading it felt like a advertisment for his other books and products.

This is the second book I've read by Robert Kiyosaki. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad was the other book I've read). The ideas in the book are so valuable that it amazes me when people saw me read the book they would make comments on how the author is scamming people, making money on false hopes. I asked these people, and there were quite a few, if they read any of the author's books. Of course the answer was always a 'no'. I got the book out of the library, in hopes to build ideas. How are you going to learn becoming rich if you blame the rich for several of the world problems? This kind of generalization seems quite popular and creates a stop of the potential growth people have in ever attaining financial education. Am I rich, from reading this book? Not as much as I would like to be; however, the insight I've obtained is invaluable and is worth the price of the book. I also recommend: 'Think and Grow Rich' by Napolean Hill, 'The Secret of the Rich' by Ken Roberts and 'The 7 most Important Areas of Your Life' by Dr. Erwin Jay.

Powerful! Powerful! Powerful.
That is the best way I can describe this book by Robert Kiyosaki. If you are tired of hearing how you have to cut up your credit cards to prevent debt then you must read this new book by RTK. It is his best ever!

First I'd like to say that in large Kiyosaki has some great ideas, and two of his books (the 1st rich dad poor dad and cash flow quadrant) were interesting reads. Unfortunately, this one isn't one of them. If this book was a set of new ideas or even just compilation of other works it would have been pretty good.

Sadly, this book just serves as one big advertisement of all of his other products, such as his board game, which he dedicates almost a full chapter for advertising it. There are glimmers of good information, but most of it is very vague.

To summarize, I wasn't very happy buying and reading a paperback commercial. I would recommend his other books, but I'm not sure I even have respect for the author anymore.

I am in the process of listening to books on CD as my job involoves a good deal of driving. I listenend to Rich Dad / Poor Dad and was invigorated. I decided to add this book on CD to my list. I just got done with it and actually skipped many parts as i felt that it was strictly a vehicle to promote other Kiyosaki products. There were really no new ideas in this book. Don't waste your time or money.

This handbook has some key advice wrapped up in the Kiyosakian story telling his readers have become familiar with. It is a great book to start out with if you have no interest in the others, and a good book to share its debt reducing tips with friends. Simple things like, don't use ATMs that charge money. You're paying to use your own money. You're better off getting cashback, or using a check if you can.

In his book, Robert Kiyosaki is supposedly going to tell you how to get rich. I know that because the book is titled "Guide to becoming rich" though it is a lot less a guide than it is a casual/disorganized conversation. The author brings up a few good points in his book, such as, replace bad debt with good debt. Good debt is something someone else pays off for you (like a mortgage loan) bad debt is like credit card debt. Pay off your credit cards one card at a time (as appose to splitting your payments), budget and find a way to save $150-$200 per month, save up the money to place it towards the down payment on your first investment property. If you have read what I have just listed, then there is nothing else left for you to learn from this book. That's it! you're done! The rest is fluff and some aimless conversation about his time in Vietnam and conversations with his friends or about his friends, and how genuinely sorry he feels for them. It is a case where the author wants to talk about these things so he creates the rationale for them to be in the book. For example he talks about some television and radio interviews in which he didn't get the last word. So to get the last word and explain how the show host got it wrong, he makes a reference to it in his book and makes the leap that they are somehow crucial for this "Guide". Furthermore, the story behind how he learned these principles from his rich dad sounds over the top sensationalized and made up. He seems to remember conversations down to the gestures and body reactions of the participants. This fascinates me since some of these conversations happened 50 years ago (if you factor in his age) I am disappointed in this book. I feel the author did no homework at all to write this.Read more ›
