Parts of this Book Made Me Weep

One of the best tools of financial navigation I've ever had the good fortune of reading. Kiyosaki and Wheelright go into deep but easy to understand detail of the ins and outs of financial literacy. Not only this, but it's very clear the financial trouble we are in as human beings in this economy is due to the wrong attitude and lack of education.

If you want to learn something about being a good human and arming yourself for a more secure financial future, or even if your just curious about entrepreneurship and investing. Then this Book is for you.

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.

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.

Interesting as a book but repeatative in content

This is the third book I read from Rich dad series. it keeps talking about the importance of getting financial education but does not provide much financial education itself.

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’ .
