He's a great motivator and a money making genius. The fact that he loves to share his wealth of knowledge is more powerful than his love of sharing his financial wealth. His books do get a little repetitious but I find that through repetition I remember things better.

This is, frankly, such a well written book for the "average Joe" of average knowledge, who no longer wants to be "average" Th This is, frankly, such a well written book for the "average Joe" of average knowledge, who no longer wants to be "average" This is an outstanding book that I intend to make available to my financial advisory clients. And no, it doesn't 'nudge' the reader into any direction that would particularly benefit my advisory practice Apr 29, Vaishali rated it really liked it Shelves: self-improvement.
Kiyosaki is highly repetitive in this book, and he admits he is not a good writer. Still, very lucid and necessary financial advice in this era of fiat currency. Jun 28, Matt Austin rated it it was ok. Reading this book in was worth it in showing just how wrong RK can be in his advice.
Every once and a while I go back to reading Kiyosaki books to see if there is anything I'm missing on the investment side and also to somewhat confirm a benchmark to how I invest. Reading this one from , I realized just how far I had come and how easy it is to write personal finance books without regard for the success of your readers. While I believe it safe to assume that many readers of this book have r Reading this book in was worth it in showing just how wrong RK can be in his advice.
While I believe it safe to assume that many readers of this book have read his other books such as RDPD or Cashflow Quadrant, It's important to note that many of the messages, notably portrayed in this book, can and would have if you followed them in result in notable losses and missing out in many ways in the greatest bull run on the stock market in history.
Not only would gold prices crash in September of due to margin calls on many firms when the market was on a down-slide, it showed that significant drops in the market would correlate to gold sales and the reverse was not necessarily true. If you shared in RK's near conspiratorial claims of gold as currency and invested in this precious metal over a broad-based market ETF, you likely would have lost money and missed out on nearly tripling your capital.
Banks are not legally authorize to create money as RK states. No money is printed. It's worth noting that he firmly believes in multilevel marketing pyramid schemes and this appears in his Cashflow games. It has been argued that the majority of his book and game sales come from people in Amway selling them as "business tools" inside their MLM scheme. Just a bit of a pot calling the kettle on this one. Do your homework on this one. Very risky and prone to leading people to day-trade with statistically horrible results.
Learn some of the methods but be wary - if you want to know if it's for you, talk to previous day traders. Learn from each other and navigate dealflow together. Hiring a coach is a great way to spend a lot of cash and wonder what to do next. This was a big part of RK's paid seminars which have some really mixed reviews - do your research 8 RK blames Warran Buffett for the financial crisis.
No really, it's in there. Overly simplistic and lacking the depth of knowledge of the major players in the financial crisis. Other than that, if this book inspired you to learn more, perfect.
Next step should be to meet up with like-minded people and start talking. Don't use this book as a recipe for success but rather talk to those who are navigating deals in your area and start changing your group of friends for your future success. All the best in your journey! May 28, Nihar Suthar rated it liked it. Overall, this is a pretty good book. Kiyosaki definitely challenges the norms of thinking, especially when it comes to finances and financial freedom.
However, depending on what you are looking for, he doesn't necessarily provide actionable guidance on what to do next. This book is more motivational and inspires you to think differently when it comes to how you view money. It's worth the read if you don't have much financial knowledge and are looking to get motivated on creating passive streams Overall, this is a pretty good book.
It's worth the read if you don't have much financial knowledge and are looking to get motivated on creating passive streams of income. Dec 27, Mohammed H rated it it was amazing. By far one of the best Audiobooks I have listened to in My obsession with audiobooks came from an article I read from a dear Friend Ahmad Moshrif, Who I believe is a really talented writer.
He has inspired me to read listen to Audiobooks and write. Today I am thankful to him for opening a whole new world of knowledge to me. I suggest you get your k By far one of the best Audiobooks I have listened to in I suggest you get your kids, wife, husband, brother, sister, mother or father to read it. I learned some very important lessons from this Audiobook. For a successful investor or entrepreneur you need to have financial knowledge to take you to your desired goals in life.
Without knowledge we are just in the dark. I leaned that in the dollar was no longer pegged to gold! There are many important lessons to learn from this book.
I hope it can add to your knowledge. Nov 13, Melissa Bishop rated it it was amazing. I do not think Kiyosaki talks down to anyone as some have accused him. I do think most people lack financial education, he realizes this and is trying to breakthrough the rhetoric and fog that has clouded most people's thoughts on finances which contributes to them being in their present financial state which is not good.
In order to breakthrough the mental barriers put up by decades of bad financial teaching and advice, things need to be repeated and broken down into an understandable vocabular I do not think Kiyosaki talks down to anyone as some have accused him.
