Why We Want You to Be Rich: Two Men, One Message | [Donald J. Trump, Robert T. Kiyosaki]

Why We Want You to Be Rich: Two Men, One Message

Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki are both concerned. Their concern is that the rich are getting richer, but America is getting poorer. The entitlement mentality is epidemic, creating people who expect their country, employer, or family to take care of them. And like the polar ice caps, the middle class is disappearing. America is becoming a two-class society, and soon you will be either rich or poor. Trump and Kiyosaki want you to be rich.

    "Dubious content lacks substance"

    This audiobook begins with Donald and Robert praising each other's wealth, then moved into a series of questions that each answers independently of each other. There are small morsels of business insight, but very few. Most commentary is of a "think big, and be big" nature, with many platitudes and little substance.
    The most dangerous aspect of their message is to denounce the "Richest Man in Babylon" and "Wealthy Barber" theory of saving, investing, diversifying, and living within your means. Instead we are told to live beyond our means, and leverage ourselves into wealth.
    Without providing any specific insights or details. There is a caveat provided that if you cannot do this successfully, then you shouldn't do it at all.
    Overall their messages are contradictory, trite, and self serving.
    For non-sophisticated investors and the average salaried worker, more practical and useable books are the two mentioned above (Babylon, and Barber). For business insight, any of Jack Welsh's books (GE CEO) are inspirational and provide tons of useable business knowledge.

    "Great for Improving Mindset"

    I've previously read some of Trump's work as well as a couple of Kiyosaki's books, so I was familiar with some of the content already.
    I enjoyed getting a deeper look into the way these two men think and why they make the decisions they do. I read a lot about business and investing, and this book had some fresh thinking which was a nice change of pace.
    As an entrepreneur myself, I was able to get some good insight into how to think about business.

    If you are looking for specific examples of how to get rich quick, this is not the book (and beware of any that make this claim). However, it is a great book for getting you to start to think in a way that will lead you to wealth and business ownership. A good starting point for future books that cover the specifics of what they talk about.

    My favorite quote was "the people with the most security have the least freedom - those in maximum security prison." A great visual for getting out of the employment "security" mentality.

    I would recommend this to someone who is on the fence about leaving their "job" to start a business.

    "Great Book - Worth Listening"

    I was leary at first, because I think Donald Trump is quite arrogant, but I was impressed. No doubt he brags about himself here and there through out the book, but it is also filled with tid-bits of wisdom and new ways to think about things.

    This book is very much a big picture, high level thinking, the way you view the world, paradigm evaluating type book. It help me personally refine and shape a few of my own ideas and inspired me to set some new goals.

    I would highly recommend it to anyone who is a Trump or Kiyosaki fan, or who is looking for some motivation and self evaluation on their own road to success.

    "Wrong Title"

    The title to this should be how we became friends. This book is all over the place and really is a rehashing of earlier books by these two.Nothing really new here. Save your money this book isn't worth it.

    "Great for changing you mindset."

    This book mostly reinforces the rich dad principles. It is a book on just what the title says. Robert and Trump telling you why they want you to be rich. Do not look for strategies or specifics in this book.

    "Eye Opening"

    This is a great book with lots of eye opening information. There will soon be two classes the Rich and the Poor. This book explains what is happening and warns you to take action. This book is recommended for those who are willing to take control of their own destiny.

    "What A Great Motivational Book"

    This was a great book that will motivate you & change the way you perform your job or business. I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Poor Dad. Although it is the first book I have read from Donald Trump, his points of view on business & personal drive are very inspirational. Since I read this book it has helped me utilize my time in every day more wisely & profitable. I recommend this book to anyone who has the need to learn more about business and the direction of they're investments.

    "Wake up call to present day economy"

    I am not going to write much about the audio book.
    I think both authors reputation, of past successfully published books history alone, is enough to ensure a good book.

    This audio book has proven yet again, to met my expectations concerning the "new" information and perspective provided in it.
    It is defiantly a good purchase to add to my audio books collection.

    "Mostly Hight Level Information"

    Not a bad book if you are interested in high level information on how these two men have accomplished some great things in real estate, but I found this other audio book "Trump Strategies for Real Estate: Billionaire Lessons for the Small Investor by George Ross" gave more low level information on how some of trumps deals got done and some more strategies in real estate investing.

    "Scarey"

    Trump and Kiyosaki expose the desperate state of the US economy and the reality of how most people think about money. You can sense the urgency of their message - wake up!
    When i heard this work, "credit crunch" would've sounded like a breakfast cereal chargecard. These guys saw it coming.
    Post the crunch, there is plenty to enjoy and take away from this book. Riveting.

    "Good book in personal financial growth"
    Would you listen to Why We Want You to Be Rich again? Why?

    Yes , very good narration with good advice from two accomplished men on the subject they seem to so passionately feel and sharing their varied experiences from diverse backgrounds.


    What other book might you compare Why We Want You to Be Rich to, and why?

    Similar lines of other books from Donald and Robert
