Only one book you will ever need to read

Robert Kiyosaki didn't hold back anything. if you listen and understand this book, you will never need to listen another one. But if you do not apply this theory, it will be waste like all other books.
few concept may be hard to understand for beginner in financial market.
I feel like, this is the book -I was waiting for.

Finally, It has arrived!

This is a book I have been waiting for to come out on CD for a long time, I pre-ordered is over a year ago. I have read every book that Robert T. Kiyosaki has published and this one is my favorite. You do need to read "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" and "the Cash-flow Quadrant" before getting this book. I say this because you need the fundamentals from these two books in order to fully grasp what this book has to offer. I would like to personally thank Mr. Kiyosaki for guiding me to financial success, and I hope you find the same success that I have found through his teachings.

Didn't really get anything new from this book.

Most of the information is captured in his previous book. Its's basically recap of his other book.

He has an issue with The Millionaire Next Door

Overall it's a decent read with the exception of the mention of Donald Trump and The Millionaire Next Door. For some reason, the author felt he needs to paint Donald Trump in a good light. But what stood out was he mentioned the book Millionaire Next Door many time throughout multiple chapters, comparing it negatively to his own financial philosophy. It would have sounded personal but he doesn't seem to understand the ideals behind The Millionaire Next Door. I mean, there is nothing wrong with living below your means and invest that extra money in real estate. He made it sound like you can only have one or the other.

Another Home Run from Kiyosaki!!!

This is the 3rd book that I've listened to from this author, I liked it so much that I ordered the physical book & can't wait to read it.
This author just gets it. He is "The Man"
The narrator is incredibly good.
Buy this audio book, you WILL enjoy it.

Rinse and repeat

This book can be condensed in to 3 chapters max. I got tired of how much of the content is repeated throughout and the question and answer format is annoying.

Incredible. I recommend this book to everyone.

The book is not only a money book but also tells that keeps the humanity in mind while making and spending the money.

Trump’s chum

I think anyone reading this book will be challenged by the author’s peon to Trump. It certain put me off, and I’m intrigued by the idea that any wealthy person supporting Trump (a man who has refused to release his tax returns and believes in enriching the super rich with further tax cuts) is genuinely troubled by the impoverishment of the middle and working class. It’s riddled with cliches and capitalist propaganda. My advice...don’t bother buying this ‘novel’ .
