From Publishers Weekly
In this absorbing memoir, a departure in everything but title for Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad Poor Dad), the investment guru and his Buddhist sister Emi narrate their life stories in terms of spiritual wealth. Switching off within chapters, the fourth-generation Japanese-American siblings describe their 1960s Hawaii upbringing, noting their independent rebellious streaks and attempts to challenge their parent's Christianity and the small-town lifestyle. Robert shipped off to Vietnam, a marine helicopter pilot with a reputation for hell-raising, before returning to the states to become a successful entrepreneur and student of visionary thinker Buckminster Fuller. Emi, meanwhile, became a single mother and an anti-war activist before discovering Buddhism, becoming ordained by the Dali Lama and working as a chaplain for the US Air Force Academy. Sister and brother reunited in 2007, when Robert offered financial support for Emi's heart surgery; the spiritual bond they discovered, and its lessons, led to this book. Emi now sees the need for "better bridges for our spiritual life and livelihood," while Robert finds that life is a quest for one's "spiritual family," a process that necessitates "finding the things in life worth dying for."

About the Author
Barbara Emi Kiyosaki grew up in Hawaii with Robert and the Kiyosaki family. While Robert took the path of war during the Vietnam era, Emi took the path of peace, exploring alternative and spiritual journeys. Emi began her studies at the University of Hawaii and then traveled to Colorado, Alaska, and India to deepen her studies and practice of Buddhism. Emi was ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 1985 and today is known by her ordination name, Bhikshuni Tenzin Kacho. For six years, Tenzin was the Buddhist chaplain at the United States Air Force Academy. She has a master of arts degree in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan Language from Naropa University. She is the assistant spiritual director and teacher at Thubten Dhargye Ling Buddhist Center in Long Beach, California, and is a visiting teacher at Thubten Shedrup Ling in Colorado Springs.

Robert shares a refreshing and candid look at his life, beginning with his childhood and the experiences that shaped his early concepts about life, religion and wealth. He reveals his mistakes, lessons and successes garnered along the way. And weaves into it his unique story and search for God, truth, meaning and wealth in his life. And of course, he is teaching the readers core concepts as he goes.
Emi's life is so dramatically different than Robert's, but her story is equally compelling, candid and revealing. Her gentle, often austere, yet spirited and persistent path led her to the steps of Dharamsala and the teachings of Buddhism and His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. Her writing exudes the same calm and wise demeanor that His Holiness is recognized for. It is evident that she has taken her Buddhist vows to heart, mind, spirit and finally (with Robert's help) to body.
The paths of the *very different* lives of this brother and sister have now crossed and even converged a bit and the result is a triumphant and interesting story interwoven with the wisdom of such distinct, yet complimentary schools of thought. This book drips with accessible and enlightening wisdom, but is also a very enjoyable autobiography. It is a candid, lovely and revealing portrait of the diversity of life (choice) that we as American's have the opportunity to pursue and enjoy. Robert and Emi dig deep to share the mistakes (and successes) they have made and the lessons learned along the way. Every page is a pearl. Thank you Robert and Emi. You have created an extraordinary piece of work.

Overall...If your looking for another Rich Dad Poor Dad type of book, you can forget it. If your looking for a biography of the author Robert T. Kiyosaki with a cameo appearance from his sister, then this would be the book for you.
