Why do the rich get richer even in a financial crisis? In his new book, the best-selling author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad confirms his message and challenges listeners to change their context and act in a new way. Robert Kiyosaki here takes a new and hard-hitting look at the factors that impact people from all walks of life as they struggle to cope with change and challenges that impact their financial world.
In An Unfair Advantage: The Power of Financial Education, Robert underscores his messages and challenges listeners to change their context and act in a new way. Listeners are advised to stop blindly accepting that they are "disadvantaged" people with limited options and challenge the preconception that they will struggle financially all of their lives.
Robert's fresh approach to his time-tested messages includes clear, actionable steps that any individual or family can take, starting with education. Education becomes applied knowledge, a powerful tactic with measurable results. In true "Rich Dad" style, listeners will be challenged to understand two points of view, and experience how financial knowledge is their unfair advantage.

If you have never read any of the RD/PD series, then the story of the rise and rise of Robert and his wife is nothing short of inspiring.However,much of this text revisits former material and is strongly flavoured with his views (or perhaps his Rich dad's views) on the political and economic demise of the United States.I was left with the impression that it was a precursor to a property "Bootcamp" or something similar (this is not offered,it was just the impression that something was missing). As an Australian Audible listener,his extensive reconfiguration of the USA retirement mechanism did not resonate and his "no recourse" bank refinancing had little Aussie equivalence. The narration style improves in the second half of the book but is somewhat dry in the earlier part and the pretend interview sequence "FAQ" might be compared to the highlighted boxes of the "Dummies " book series,which works for skimmers...but in an audio version it's just an annoyance. This is not one I will recommend to fellow Aussie investors, even though we all know the R D P D series.
I give this book a 5 star rating because it is a true eye opener to the novice wanting to become wealthy.
It is not a get rich quick scheme but an introduction to financial education, which in turn, becomes financial freedom.....
"Repeat of all of his books."
Given it substance. I often felt like I accidentally hit the rewind button because he repeated himself so much! It just didn't have anything viable to say.
Don't waste your money. There are plenty of books that actually provide usable information.
"Wish I had known this 20 years ago"
There is so much common sense in this audio. I wish I had listened to it 20 years ago. Still never to late...
I recommend this audio - it is easy to listen to and very practical. Definitely worth the cost.
I am not happy at a with this book.
It is almost an exact repetition of "cash flow" book and the other book "increase your financial Iq"
I barely heard new knowledge in this book which does not exist in the other two books.
Also it seems Robert went too far in advertising indirectly for his educational seminar which too much repetition and insistence on his educational seminar affect the credibility of the message because it is his own seminar and his own company. I would rather prefer to produce one NEW & excellent book rather than repeating his own previous books and make every new book a platform for advertisement for his seminar and game. Robert is a great thinker and educator but I do not understand why he follows these cheap sales strategies.
"Not Practical for Most People"
Most of the advice in this book is not geared towards the regular working employees with traditional savings/investment/retirement plans. It is not feasible for everyone to pull money out of traditional investments and start buying up hotels, gold mines, and oil drilling companies, like the author did. I was looking for some more practical advice areas where a majority of people have their investments: paper assets. The author did have a few good explanations around money flow and the sub-prime mortgage crisis. I would not recommend this book for the average investor who invests in mainly paper assets.
"Repetition, Repetition, Repetition, Rep..."
Message 1- READ ALL OF MY BOOKS.
Message 2- I am rich
Message 3- The world is broke.
Message 4- Read all of my books.
Message 5- I am rich...
"Better than anything on the radio"
No one else in my life would of taught me this! I always listen this audio and learn something new each time.
I love the perspective and practical language of this book. The narrator does a great job at speaking in the tone intended in the text
"changing times are here"
this was excellent for those ready to receive by changing their old unproductive ways. it's up to you!
"More of a political book"
Great rich building concepts discussed, but more of a political book. Slamming ex-Fed Reserve bank head Bernanke.
"best book I have read so far thanks Robert "
thanks Robert, your books have changed my life and my family's life as well, now we're on the right track for a btter life thanks again.
Great to be able to listen while driving. makes it time efficient. Reader was quite boring
