Finally, It has arrived!

This is a book I have been waiting for to come out on CD for a long time, I pre-ordered is over a year ago. I have read every book that Robert T. Kiyosaki has published and this one is my favorite. You do need to read "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" and "the Cash-flow Quadrant" before getting this book. I say this because you need the fundamentals from these two books in order to fully grasp what this book has to offer. I would like to personally thank Mr. Kiyosaki for guiding me to financial success, and I hope you find the same success that I have found through his teachings.

Didn't really get anything new from this book.

Most of the information is captured in his previous book. Its's basically recap of his other book.

Insufferable

Well shoot, this got buried in my library over year ago. What a waste of a credit. I felt like I was subjected to mean boss shaking his self righteous finger in my face, yelling how stupid that I am but never teaching me anything.

Another Home Run from Kiyosaki!!!

This is the 3rd book that I've listened to from this author, I liked it so much that I ordered the physical book & can't wait to read it.
This author just gets it. He is "The Man"
The narrator is incredibly good.
Buy this audio book, you WILL enjoy it.

Take the Red Pill

This book is like following the white rabbit down the hole into a magical world that only the elites know.
Public Screw messed up society all backed by tax dollars that you and I pay, just to create more drones in the system. I listened to the sample and the analogy of the monkey vs the pros compelled me to buy this audiobook.
You wanna know how the rich get richer? It's because of DEBT and TAXES.
That's what keeps us poor and the rich use that to their advantage.
Are you mad Trump pays almost nothing in income taxes? Buffet, Soros, Elon Musk, the list goes on!
This book will explain it in layman's terms.
Ok I'll tell you, he is an Active Investor and he get tax breaks and incentives to produce.
Developing land, drilling for resources, building projects, creating jobs that will provide taxes.
Producers make food, fuel, and products for society. It's called Capitalism.
If Government doesn't let these amazing people create or build by giving them tax breaks,
but instead builds it, that's called socialism.
This book will teach you to increase your Financial Intelligence. It's a journey.
Some will get there faster than others but if you are willing you will make it.
lastly. Public Screw punishes mistakes. We all learn through mistakes, it's why many super rich people
dropped out of college because of this perpetuating fallacy of punishing mistakes.
You can't learn if you don't take risks or make mistakes, but the most important thing is,
you MUST learn from your mistakes! And don't be hard on yourself if you fail your test.
"To fail is to succeed. And to succeed is to not fail" by learning from mistakes and always learning...
This is the tip of the iceburg, there are lots of topics and discussions all very very valuable and eye opening.
The narrator I wanna give props to for being so clear and concise.
Unlike other audiobooks who sound too emotional or drunk with slurred speech, "Old Man and the Sea" anyone?

Trump’s chum

I think anyone reading this book will be challenged by the author’s peon to Trump. It certain put me off, and I’m intrigued by the idea that any wealthy person supporting Trump (a man who has refused to release his tax returns and believes in enriching the super rich with further tax cuts) is genuinely troubled by the impoverishment of the middle and working class. It’s riddled with cliches and capitalist propaganda. My advice...don’t bother buying this ‘novel’ .

Parts of this Book Made Me Weep

One of the best tools of financial navigation I've ever had the good fortune of reading. Kiyosaki and Wheelright go into deep but easy to understand detail of the ins and outs of financial literacy. Not only this, but it's very clear the financial trouble we are in as human beings in this economy is due to the wrong attitude and lack of education.

If you want to learn something about being a good human and arming yourself for a more secure financial future, or even if your just curious about entrepreneurship and investing. Then this Book is for you.

Only one book you will ever need to read

Robert Kiyosaki didn't hold back anything. if you listen and understand this book, you will never need to listen another one. But if you do not apply this theory, it will be waste like all other books.
few concept may be hard to understand for beginner in financial market.
I feel like, this is the book -I was waiting for.
