Publisher's Summary

Robert Kiyosaki's new audiobook 8 Lessons in Military Leadership for Entrepreneurs draws from his years at the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point and his service in the United Sates Marine Corps. With compelling stories and examples and an engaging way of comparing and contrasting two very different cultures and value systems, Robert shares the challenges he faced in transitioning to civilian life: where chain of command and team-over-self - once so black and white - were muddy and distorted. "Permission to speak freely, sir?" Count on it. This is Robert Kiyosaki - and he does just that, in the forthright and no-nonsense style that listeners have come to expect and appreciate.

From Robert's perspective, military training shapes lives and supports entrepreneurship. The training, discipline, and leadership skills taught in the military can be leveraged for huge success in the civilian world of business.

Highlights of 8 Lessons in Military Leadership for Entrepreneurs include sections on Mission and Team, Discipline, Respect, Authority, Speed, the Power of Connectivity, Leaders as Teachers, and Sales and Leadership.

Great book for this civilian

I think Robert Kiyosaki has a gift for storytelling and inspiring. He discusses how important leadership is in the military and in a war zone, and draws parallels to the adversity entrepreneurs face in business. I myself having absolutely no experience in the military got a better idea of the benefits one might get from having the disciplene of a marine. But more than that he discusses the qualities that he had found inspiring in his leaders, and to some extent how to inspire others in life and in business. Unfortunately it sounds like it's read by a robot, but you get used to that after the first few chapters.

A Book To Share. Tears were flowing.

If you know a veteran or former military person, they have to get this asap. I would also recommend it to all the new JROTC, ROTC, and military school students as a must read. The only reason the lower scores were given to this book was the repetativeness in parts to the stories and would have been great to get RK to have recorded this one.

A great advert for what the military gives a person

Positives: military leadership is often thought to be totally different I civilian leadership due to the nature of the military (questioning seemingly not being allowed, having subordinates that must follow orders etc) but this book really draws it loads of interesting relevant parallels that cross the divide.

Negatives: Slightly hard to discern the 8 lessons as part of the audio version and there is a lot of cross over with his other books.
