Here, Buckminster Fuller takes on the gigantic corporate megaliths that exert increasing control over every aspect of daily life. In the form of a modern allegory, he traces the evolution of these multinational giants from the post-World War II military-industrial complex to the current army of abstract legal entities known as the corporate world. GRUNCH stands for Gross Universal Cash Heist.

The verbiage and concepts presented in this book are derived from research. The author used data, trends, history, and introspection to present their case of what is called GRUNCH. The author also gives solution and means of achieving those solutions. This is an All-around wonderful book of its time and the present, though very complex in its presentation.

Robert Kiyosaki - author of the #1 personal finance book of all time - has built a legacy around simplifying complex and often-confusing subjects like money and investing. He continues to challenge conventional wisdom and asks the questions that will help listeners sift through today's information overload to uncover ways to assess what's real... and what isn't. And use truth and facts as a foundation for taking control of their financial lives. In this new book, Robert fights what’s "fake" and helps listeners differentiate between what’s real...and what isn’t.

This book was very confirming to those whose eyes are watching the financial mishandling of the world economy of money. In three parts, a very detailed description is given on what the title means and is explained pretty thoroughly. At times redundant and seemingly repetitive, the repetition and allusion is used to emphasize the points made over and over again. Repetition is used as a teaching point to elaborate more on previous points. Overall, a great read, gives great advice, recommends many other great educational and anecdotal books, and is classically Kiyosaki. The book is not really for beginners, such as ‘rich dad, poor dad’ but is a lesson from the same teacher.

although there are several anecdotal takeaways from this book, the overall story was non linear nor chronological. fairly short read and somewhat informative on a few of the lesser known facts of the man on the US 100 dollar bill.

Great insight and overview, even for its time. highly recommended book for understanding the not-so-known habits of the wealthy and the self-crippling habits of the non-wealthy american. This book also delves into the habits of the wealthy that cripple their children through what is called "Economic Outpatient Care". A must read for youth, adults, and elderly alike. I recommend taking notes and multiple readings throughout your lifetime. Fantastic anecdotes all the while placed in a logical and realistic context any given century. A classic must-have book.
