Few would argue with the fact that on many fronts, we are a world in crisis. And there are two sides to every crisis, be it a leadership crisis, an economic crisis, an education crisis, or a moral crisis. The two sides to crisis are danger and opportunity.
Robert Kiyosaki's new book, Second Chance: for Your Money and Your Life, uses the lessons from the past and a brutal assessment of the present to prepare readers to see - and seize - the future.
If readers can train their minds to see what their eyes cannot in a world that is becoming increasingly more invisible and moving at a high rate of speed, they can have a second chance at creating the lives they've always wanted.
The global problems we face cannot be solved by the same minds and people who created them, and today's world demands the ability to see the future and prepare for what lies ahead…prepare for the opportunities as well as the challenges.
Like it or not, we are all involved in the greatest evolutionary event in human history. The Industrial Age is over, and the Information Age continues to accelerate. The visible agents of change have become invisible...and harder to see. And the future belongs to those who can train their minds, use the past to see the future, and take the steps to create the positive changes they want to see in their lives.
Second Chance is a guide to understanding how the past will shape the future and how you can use Information Age tools and insights to create a fresh start. This book is a guide to facing head-on the dangers of the crises around us - and steps and tips for seizing the opportunities they present.

I am a "Life is Awesome! Strive to be Worthy of it." student of life kind of guy. Feeding on Chaos and Empowering the Good. Group Hug!
Robert Kiyosaki, is awesome, I've read several of his books and they were evolutionary in his advice and experiences. But this book had an agenda to push you towards his way of thinking. I am not dissing his dream about being a giver/educator, or his idea's. He says right off that this is not a religious book, but I couldn't help feeling like he was preaching to me. I am not a gazillion billionaire like him, so my opinion should be taken with a grain of salt,
I kind of hate how he plays his Rich Dad Poor Dad (RDPD) down as an marketing pamphlet for his game. Everyone knows that RDPD was an awesome book along with Cash-flow Quadrant. Yah, however I can't recommend this book, honestly I want to ask for my money back on this one. I won't do that because in general Robert Kiyosaki is awesome. The righteous kick he is on in this book made it a real struggle for me to get through it.
He should change the title of this book, it seems to be more of a Biography then anything else. When I bought this book I was looking for pivotal mind blowing evolutionary business changing philosophy like Cash-flow Quadrant. Not a biography or anything about his faith, what his definitions of good vs innuendos evil. If it had said "Second Chance, My Biography" I think the whole idea of what I was buying and my expectations would have been different which would have altered my opinion as well.
insightful, useful, brilliant
Kiyosaki has taken on a more sage-like voice in this book. He pays homage to the brilliant Bucky Fuller by including Bucky's teachings I have a *way* deeper appreciation for what it was that Bucky has contributed to each of us.
Read this book, or suffer the consequences of ignoring it.
Kiyosaki does an amazing job presenting not only great education, as usual, but deep and profound wisdom with the help of his long-time friend Bucky Fuller. As Kiyosaki has worked tirelessly to expand his own personal horizons, he's so generously enabled us to be along for the ride. I'm really excited about the impact this is already having on my thinking around business and money.
This was a great listen. Robert gives some new insights into the past, as well as the future. Many will complain and say thing s the book suggests are not possible. But those people will never take their second chance.
These books are some of the best value on audible
Very thought provoking.
Part history, part finance, part spiritual.
Kiyosaki has a way of bringing across very complex topics in easy to understand ways.
All and all great listen.
Most definitely a must read for those who want to learn how to survive the crash. I must say though it it slightly repetitive in certain themes. I wish he would have used different examples. Having most of the quotes come solely from fuller made me think I was reading the wrong book.
This book is now my second favorite outside of his first book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad. I've read 5 of his books, but this is the first that opened my eyes to take things to that next level.
It could be that I'm in a better place in my life and experienced business first hand; nonetheless, this gives the right details for me to take the leap for the next phase of success.
Read, you won't regret it!
Understanding the quadrant and apply the financial education ! What a great, simple explanations from Robert.... time to take actions, to begin acting my second chance!
"Captivating - a must read for all"
Like many rich dad poor dad has had a greater influence on my life and thinking than any other book but some of his spin off books have perhaps gone over the same ground a little to much. This book however is totally relevant, by far the best most succinct description of the why the financial system is in the state it is in and how best to profit in this mess.
Amazing book. Best investment to help me transform my life experience. Made me realise I have to change the way I think & see the world in order to move from the social economic concept of being an employee
"great book with interesting insights"
Very good book that has a wake up call for society today and key pointers to improve your financial life.
Provided some good info and interesting ideas to mull over but very repetitive. the only
"Time to wake up!"
A great help to your waking up process is this engaging book. Read it now and then get to preparing!
"Phenomenal information in this book"
I love the information this book has shared, it has literally opened up so many thoughts I never knew existed, the matter of seeing the invisible didn't make sense to me until I completed this book. Highly recommended to anybody who wants to take advantage of the current world and where it is heading. Thank you for my head start.
"Summary - New material, however a lot of the same"
More detail on what he thinks will cause the next recession/depression and an analysis on why it occurs.
Not of the Genre, just his line of books.
disappointment, I was hoping that he would do explanation of Peter Schiff.
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)
"The real life! Teach it to your loved ones! "
Second chance to everyone! Take it or lose it! After you read this book , you only can blame yourself for a poor quality of life!
I recommend to all who want a better life!
"Top quality as usual from RTK"
A stark reminder with many new insights of what we should doing to achieve escape velocity from the E and S Quadrants.
"The Q&A format needs editing for audiobook to work"
The content of this book overlaps with the Rich Dad Poor Dad book quite a lot, in fact, it's teaching the same principles on assets vs liabilities. The problem however is that this book is in the form ofa Q&A. The narrator would read. "Q. What is blah blah blah? A. The answer is so and so". Yes, the Q and the A is narrated.
Whilst this allows the book to explore questions a reader of the book may have, it's very annoying after a while for a LISTENER, as the constant Q. and A. disrupts the flow of the audio.
Perhaps the audio version should have been edited to make the Q&A format more like a conversation between two people rather than literally reading out "Q", and "A" every other paragraph.
