Editorial Reviews

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

Robert Kiyosaki is a fourth-generation Japanese American, born and raised in Hawaii. After graduating from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy 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 the 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 forty-seven. During his short-lived retirement, he wrote the international bestselling book Rich Dad Poor Dad, and in 2006 coauthored with Donald Trump Why We Want You To Be Rich. An entrepreneur, teacher, and investor, Robert also writes a monthly column, “Why the Rich Are Getting Richer,” for Yahoo! Finance, and a monthly column, “Rich Returns,” for Entrepreneur magazine.

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. She occasionally resides at Geden Choling Nunnery in northern India. Tenzin also works as a hospice chaplain in Los Angeles, California.
