I was trying to decide whether or not to copy and paste this review across all of Kiyosaki's Rich Dad related books, and I came to the conclusion that I would. Here's why:
The information his books is repurposed many times over, and while there is some new information in each book, there is really an embarrassing amount of repetition. I hate to say it, but it does seem like Robert is trying to squeeze blood out of a stone at this point.
There is a level of deception in repeating his information - readers like myself who value his work will buy all of his books, to find that they have spent $200 on an overall total of two books worth of unique content.
With all of that said, I don't complain, because that $200 has been a very, very lucrative investment in my life. Without reading Kiyosaki's books, my current mindset would not be the way that it is, and I would not be in the position that I currently find myself in.
Overall, if you haven't read Rich Dad books before, and you wish to be successful and wealthy in business and investing, you are doing yourself a disservice if you do not read them. Just please be aware, once you have read one or two, you will have to sift through some regurgitated content to find the hidden gems.
This was by far the most informative and motivating of all the Rich Dad books. This book should be more popular than Rich Dad Poor Dad. This is the book every aspiring entrepreneur needs to read.
Every chapter is packed with powerful insights. I read rich dad 20 years ago and because of that book I got into investing in real estate. Best thing I ever did. Wish it hadn't taken me this long to read this book. It's rich dad on steroids
Loved this book. Robert teaches a range of concepts from novice to advanced. Physical concepts that you should be doing daily. Most people look past the novice daily habbits but they are critical to changing your future. Then he teaches Mental concepts on how to change your thinking.. which are really advanced. If you are a person who knows to look within to solve your problems.. you will love Roberts approach. His challenge to think past the way you've been raised is not an easy task for most drones. If you're looking for a written recipe or formula.. then you will probably miss the deeper journey he's asking you to take.. which is.. only you can create a formula for you.
Loved the real world examples. As an owner of apartment communities and real estate investor for over 6 years I can attest that the books content is accurate. This is a great read for both those looking to get stated changing their financial reality and those like myself that want to take it to another level. One word: POWERFUL!!
The book really got to me to my core. I read Rich Dad Poor Dad about 8 years ago and have invested in a few rental properties since. It was good to have that background before listening to this since my context was already expanded beyond an employee mindset. Some of this was like drinking from a fire hose but was excellent
"Zero interesting content"
Managed to get through this audio book though was tempted many times to turn it off. There is absolutely no content to this book, all the author keeps saying is 'content' and 'context'! I also heard the same stories, ideas and sayings at least 3 times. Definitely get the feeling this was an after thought of a book. Less a business book more a psychology paper.
"Summary - Repeated material from his first book"
Put new material in or new examples in that weren't in his first book.
Come up with new asset classes or new idea's he did'nt already share in his first book.
I own most of his books. I already have the mind set and behaviour he teaches prior to reading all his books. If your financially illiterate, it’s enough to read his first book Rich Dad Poor Dad (Unabridged)
