Review of RICH & HAPPY by Robert Kiyosaki

The complete title is:  If you want to be RICH & HAPPY don’t go to school.  A work of love, this book presents Robert Kiyosaki’s view of the education system in which we grow up and get educated by.  An eye opener for most, and a sad truth, the book explains how the system prepares you for failure in the future.  It shows you how the harmful programming you received during your school years prevents and sabotages your success.  Robert says it like it is, and doesn’t sugar coat it.  He is also deeply concerned about the wrong programming that has been going on for many generations, and still continues.  While reading these truths, I got chills, and couldn’t help but feel sad for our children; tears streamed down while recognizing some of the patterns, in myself.  A must read for every parent, and teacher, but mostly, for every one of us, who has been educated in the system.

Review of RICH DAD’S SUCCESS STORIES by Robert Kiyosaki

I loved this one. A fast read. For those who question Robert Kiyosaki’s system, this one is full of stories from people who utilized the teachings of Rich Dad to create a life of meaningful existence and the beginning of wealth. Each individual relates their story, and how they applied what they learned through Kiyosaki’s books in their lives. The story of a 13 year old, already on the road to financial success, was one of my favorites.  Another page turner.

 

My review of THE BUSINESS SCHOOL FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKE HELPING PEOPLE by Robert T. Kiyosaki

Although written for the network marketing readers, this book presents many useful tips and values that are important for any entrepreneur. Written in a clear and candid way, it presents a personal view on network marketing by the author, as well as the benefits to start a network marketing type of business. The points discussed here are valuable for any business. I personally got a lot from this book.

My review of INCREASE YOUR FINANCIAL IQ by Robert T. Kiyosaki

Another masterpiece by Robert Kiyosaki. In this book, Mr. Kiyosaki says it like it is, in a more blunt and direct style, maybe, as a result of rubbing elbows with The Donald. By briefly tapping into this country‘s financial history (and not being boring) he takes us into the past and back to the future, while explaining how important increasing your financial IQ is to your financial success and survival in the information age. A must read for anyone who does not want to get behind or being crush by the fast-changing times.

My review of RETIRE YOUNG RETIRE RICH by Robert Kiyosaki

If I was to select one book to summarize many of Robert Kiyosaki’s financial teachings, this one would be it.  A very “alive” book that for me, was a page turner. It is where Robert’s teachings come together. Written in his characteristic simple to understand style and made real with his personal story, this one is my favorite so far.

My review of WHY WE WANT YOU TO BE RICH By Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki

A taste of what the perfect combination of these two financial geniuses can be. Mostly, their point of views in different economic issues spiced with some anecdotes and again, a simple, straight forward approach that will not bore the reader. Although I loved each one as separate authors, I love the powerful combination of their teachings in one book. I found that the book needed more easy flow from Robert to Donald to Robert again, but since their styles are so different, as their personalities come alive through the pages, this might have been the best approach for the book. I am looking forward to more Trump-Kiyosaki masterpieces.

 

 

My review of THE ABC’s OF GETTING OUT OF DEBT By Robert Kiyosaki

In a straight forward, simple manner, Robert Kiyosaki takes you on a journey to review your financial situation, goals, dreams, and to prepare a plan for your future, based on your own assessment according to some pointers and guidelines. Flavored with anecdotes and clear observations, this book can help you develop real goals to start on the road of financial freedom. Not a how to guide, but instead, a base for the reader to start analyzing his/her own financial situation, set up goals, and a plan that is “self” created. An excellent book that will jumpstart the gears of your mind.

My take on the book: CASHFLOW QUADRANT – RICH DAD’S GUIDE TO FINANCIAL FREEDOM By Robert T. Kiyosaki with Sharon L. Lechter, C.P.A.

This is another ingenious creation of Robert Kiyosaki (like its predecessor Rich Dad Poor Dad).  In this, his second book, Robert Kiyosaki tells it like it is. There are no short cuts to getting wealthy. Not a how to book, but more a get to know yourself better – your style, your goals, so you know in which financial quadrant you want to be. The information is presented in an easy to understand style with anecdotes and examples that makes reading this book enjoyable. Some of his opinions, and events that he foresaw for the future are already happening. He encourages us to study economic history as a way to foresee future financial trends – because history repeats itself. He gives the reader the gift of the 7 steps to finding your financial fast track, a formula that him and his wife Kim followed, and still do today. A must read if you would like to change quadrants and become wealthy.
