    If Robert Kiyosaki described this book as "the most important book I've ever written", I would like to say that this is definitely the most important book I've ever read. It showcases success stories of "C Student" who grew up to be phenomenal successes and hired those "A Students" to work in their business.. while the more average students, "B Students", often find themselves in government-type jobs.

Other than that, it made me think about what I've already seen with my own eyes and have experienced as well. It's important being smart in school or having a good grades, but the most important thing is being able to translate what we learned in school to the real life. The book gave me a very good financial education, in order to avoid having grown ups always living pay check to pay check. I loved the book. Every people around the world really have to read this book.

    I lied, I didn't actually finish the book. That's how bad it was. I'm mad I wasted so much time in finishing as much as I did. Did anyone edit this book? The author repeated the same material and words in every chapter. It felt like rambles with very poor research.

Robert Kiyosaki says that teachers should have their kids learn about how money works. There are countless of people who have not taken business, or entrepreneurship. This book explains if teacher's keep teaching children to be in a rat race then people will always lose money. He explains that a rat race starts in college,then get's you more in depth by getting a job, and be the life of a self employee. I think that these guidelines are extremely helpful in to knowing how money work's. I even told my mom when I read how the bank works. This book was the third most interesting book I ever hear or read about and I'm glad I read it.

A lot of the information in the book is repeated, and the edition I read could do with a good edit for typos - that's the only reason I'm not giving it 5/5.

    Let me start by saying that although I did like the book, I do wish that more attention was paid to grammar and spelling, but aside from that, I think this book is pretty good because it made me think about what I've already seen with my own eyes and have experienced as well. I've met people that are what I'd call above smart, but they don't seem to do very well once they are in the real world.

I've met people that are what I'd call above smart, but they don't seem to do very well once they are in the real world. They get amazing grades in school, but they are not able to translate the success they enjoyed in school to the workplace and yes, they do end up working for people/students that are usually C students. The author, Kiyosaki, also made a really good point when he spoke about how little we, students, know about finance by the time we finish school. I graduated with an MBA a couple of years ago, and from experience I can attest that there was no course taught in school that dealt with things such as: learning to manage your money, investing, real estate, etc. All those things, I've learned from books I got from the library, in other words, self-taught. Yes, we do and should teach children early on about money, finance, investing, etc., in order to avoid having grown ups always living pay check to pay check. I liked the book, but a little repetitive and in need of proofreading.

    I was really excited about this book but it turned out to be a big disappointment. There are virtually no new ideas if you've read the original "Rich Dad, Poor Dad", and I was annoyed by the constant repetition (yes, I know Romney paid less taxes than Obama...). Kiyosaki makes a good point that neither schools nor parents are training kids to be "C" students -- capitalists -- but other than advocating playing Monopoly or his Cash Flow 101 board game with kids, he offers few solutions.

His "seven words of money" -- concepts everyone should master relating to money -- would have been a good starting point however if he had included advice on how to teach them to kids: income, expense, assets [business, real estate, paper assets, commodities], liabilities, debt, cash flow. Then again maybe Monopoly does teach you everything!

    Well, there's nothing to learn here. While I really enjoyed some of Kiyosaki's other books, this one really lacks substance. He regurgitates and repeats and repeats and repeats (yep, it's annoying just like this run-on sentence) the same sentences over and over until you think you're reading in circles. The action steps for parents at the end of each chapter are not actually action steps, they are more like vague ideas all good parents already know they should do.

You would be much better off playing Kiyosaki's game Cashflow for Kids with your kids to teach them about money than to read this book. Move along, there's nothing to learn here.

    Kiyosaki should be glad I'm an "A" student; because that is the only reason I persevered with his somewhat repetitive book. What he says is for the most part true but not all of it is "doable."Leveraging money to buy Real Estate sounds great but if the purchased property does not get rented, far from being passive income it'll become a liabilty. An interecting read but with some caution.

    School is a great experience for some children. For others, school is the worst experience of their lives. Every child has a genius. Unfortunately, their genius may not be recognized by the educational system. Their genius may even be crushed. Thomas Edison, one of the great geniuses of modern times, was labeled "addled" by his first teacher. Addled means "mixed up or confused." He never finished school, and instead became an inventor and an entrepreneur. The company he founded, known today as Gen School is a great experience for some children.

Thomas Edison, one of the great geniuses of modern times, was labeled "addled" by his first teacher. Addled means "mixed up or confused." He never finished school, and instead became an inventor and an entrepreneur. The company he founded, known today as General Electric, creates products that have changed the world. A few of Edison’s early projects were the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the electric light bulb. Albert Einstein also failed to impress his teachers. From elementary school through college, his teachers thought he was lazy, sloppy, and insubordinate. Most of his teachers said, "He will not amount to anything." Yet Einstein became one of the most influential scientists in history. Genius is an acronym for "Geni-in-us"—the genie or magician in each of us. All parents have met the genius in their child. Most parents know that a child’s true genius is found in their dreams. We see glimpses of it from an early age…the ideas and things that delight them, fascinate them, and challenge them. Protecting and nurturing the genius in your child is a parent’s most important job. This book is written as a guide to help you develop a child’s financial genius.

    Must read for individuals and parents. Our schools didn't equip us with life and financial skills. Don't fret, this book is your bootcamp if you will. Learn how to deal with the unpleasant and nasty surprises life will throw at you. As it's quite often, the key is to accept you don't know certain things, but you can learn them as and when you want.

    It's also a pretty good as every book Kiyosaki wrote is. I understand more when I read new books written by him. I always misunderstand what he want to tell me because I've never read these kind of information and I've been closer to poor dad than rich dad. But I read most of books he wrote, so I'm sure that I'm going to have rich's mindset. Every his book told me similiar topics but it's never had same direction he suggested. It's pretty easy book to read but good contents are on it.

    I've read two (this is my second) Robert Kiyosaki's books and I tend to like his writing. It's simple and straightforward and the information he provides is usually quite useful. However, I do not like his constant use of his "poor" dad as his prime example of financial failure and doom. I believe the departed (his dad) should not be spoken of so much if he is not around to defend his choices.

I believe the departed (his dad) should not be spoken of so much if he is not around to defend his choices. Anyway, this book does not give you specifics step by step to financial freedom but it does explain the system in which we exist and how schools are the primary manufacturers of "employees" for the system. As an A student, most of what he described in terms of fear of failure, etc. resonated with me as I was an A student working for the government in the E/S quadrant (with a bunch of other A and B students) trying to get on the professional path (doctor). However, I quickly saw the fallacy of societal expectations and got on the road to financial freedom and am now an entrepreneur myself. If I had gone the professional (engineer, lawyer or doctor) and/or academia route, I probably would not be much entertained by this book as it touches some sensitive truths. But, at the same time, I think the percentage of A and C students who truly succeed is probably about the same. Not all C students will be successful and not all A students will work for C students. And, not all B students will work for the government. It's possible that most C students tend to go into the business world because it's practical and requires outstanding social skills that most A students aka bookworms don't seem to hone. I'd recommend this book purely for the content and Kiyosaki's interesting perspective. It's definitely brain food that will have you questioning some of your financial decisions such as college. I've met so many people who attend college without an idea of what they want to do with the degree (investing money and time that doesn't give good ROI) . I met so many doctors who didn't really like their job, engineers who didn't like their job and leave their industry for the financial and financial for the entrepreneurial world. Once you enter the B/I quadrant, it's nearly impossible to go back to the E/S quadrant.

    This is an ode to capitalism and wealth acquisition masquerading as a self-help guide on financial literacy. The central thesis is that the best way to make money is to own a big business or, better still, invest and let your money work for you.

The central thesis is that the best way to make money is to own a big business or, better still, invest and let your money work for you. The titular "A" students, he argues, lack the courage to take the risks to do those things and settle for earning paychecks. Of course, this argument requires accepting the unstated premise: that personal monetary gain should be the motivating factor in how a person lives their life. The reality is that not everyone shares that goal. Many people choose to sacrifice monetary riches to work in fields that improve the lives of others. Some people lack the drive, means, or even the desire to be a job creator. And it's a good thing! If everyone refused to be a mere employee, there would be no one to make up the work force of the large businesses he loves. The scant good ideas in this book (e.g. leveraging debt to work for you) are interesting enough but they do not warrant a book of this length. And they could surely be conveyed without denigrating good students and perpetuating the long-shot dream of wealth-through-entrepreneurship-instead-of-education. His chief examples of poor students who took risks and went on to be fabulously wealthy are people like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerburg, once-in-a-generation successes who got rich on big ideas. Great stories, sure. But hardly a template for success.

    Very inspirational. While I do not agree with everything in this book, it makes some good points and has great ideas. The book makes a point which many people, myself included, can relate to - that you do not have to be an A student at school to succeed later in life. Many of the greatest entrepeneurs were college dropouts or C students.

Schools tend to punish wrong answers, and don't consider mistakes a good thing, however the author argues that mistakes are important learning opportunities. Seeing things on both sides of the coin, and from both sides of the argument increases your intelligence. So in spite of disagreeing with some of the other things the author says in this book - such as criticisms of the welfare state - all in all I found it a very inspiring read.

    I could not give it more than two stars, for two reasons: First, it seems that Kiyosaki is paraphrsing his own original tenet, which I have already read in his "Rich Dad Poor Dad", but with sighltly different manner and style.

    This book gave me a good financial education. I think this is a must-read especially for parents to educate their children about money. I think not everyone agrees that children should be taught about money from an early age, but Robert Kiyosaki says giving children a good grasp of finance is actually a very useful lesson to carry them through life.

    In short, the Author again n again tediously repeats that the traditional education is not preparing us for the real world n we need to look for financial education- but this book won't provide you that.

This book is a compilation of core Rich Dad principles plus Robert Kiyosaki's observations on global and American society. His primary theme is that government and schools are not out to make better or more productive citizens, but to get all they can for themselves. He cites ample evidence to back this up. In the meantime, young people are taught to get the right answers, get good grades, and get jobs which have zero security in the modern ages. Anything that can be automated or sent offshore will be, including formerly prestigious and safe jobs like attorney, teacher, radiologist and business consultant. And if you make it through a working career, chances are you will not have enough money to live on in retirement, since the government and corporations conspired to eliminate pensions and made old age savings YOUR responsibility. Rich Dad and Robert Kiyosaki are unabashed capitalists, in the sense that if you gave them $10 they would figure out how to multiply it into $1000. They want people to wake up and see what is going on, not just accept what their teachers and bosses tell them. They want Americans to reclaim the self-sufficient nature they once had. They want to spawn a wave of entrepreneurs who tap their inner greatness to create economic value, like Steve Jobs. This is a good Rich Dad book to give you a quick overview of the key principles, including: - The CASHFLOW Quadrants (ESBI or Employee, Specialist, Business Owner, Investor) - The three types of income (ordinary, portfolio, passive), how/why they are taxed differently and why you want to be in the B and I quadrants - The three types of students (A, B and C) - How to break out of the Rat Race of working to spend and then trying to get out of debt, and self-actualize your life - Understanding mega trends, such as why so many US citizens are dependent on government entitlements and how the US is crippling itself by printing money Yes, the book is somewhat repetitive. Kiyosaki might say that is intentional, because "repetition is how we learn" and reading is the most ineffective method of learning. He wants people to do something with the information they get from his books. And they must be: Rich Dad books are among the most popular texts cited by people in the FIRE movement (Financial Independence, Retire Early.) He is inspiring people to take charge of their lives - that's a good thing. Read this book to get you and your kids to think differently about money and start a lifetime journey of financial education. Because like it or not, surviving in US society requires more financial knowledge than ever before - and the consequences of not being financially savvy are worse than ever. Just ask someone with $100K in student loans and $20K in consumer loans if they have regrets about their financial choices. Rich Dad taught Kiyosaki starting from the age of 9. You, too can start your kids early on the right path.

    In the nonfiction book Why “A” Students Work for “C” Students and “B” Students Work for the Government by Robert Kiyosaki, the author teaches the reader how the educational system in schools today is just not cutting in terms of preparing our future generations to become financially independent or at the very least keeping our economy from another great depression. Kiyosaki teaches these lessons through recollections of his own experiences. As he we growing up he had two role models in his life. In the nonfiction book Why “A” Students Work for “C” Students and “B” Students Work for the Government by Robert Kiyosaki, the author teaches the reader how the educational system in schools today is just not cutting in terms of preparing our future generations to become financially independent or at the very least keeping our economy from another great depression. Kiyosaki teaches these lessons through recollections of his own experiences. As he we growing up he had two role models in his life. One of which was his own father whom was highly educated and had a decent salary. The other role model Kiyosaki had growing up was his best friend’s dad who was a self employed business man. Kiyosaki compares these two role models for every lesson he teaches and explains why his own father is always struggling for money despite him being highly educated. One of the most important lessons he teaches is why people struggle and what separates them from the successful. He words it like this; “The rich don’t work for money” (Kiyosaki 40). By this he means that you will never truly be rich by working a nine to five job. There is just not enough time in your life to be able to become rich from working a normal forty hours a week job. Even if it is a high paying job. I can heavily connect with because while I was growing up, my dad taught me the same lesson. My dad would always explain to me the benefits of being self employed. He would say that once his real estate business was set up he would continue to make money off of it whether he worked or not. Similarly to Kiyosaki, my father didn’t believe in job security either. He believes in taking risks and not relying on a paycheck that you could lose at any given moment. My father being the self employed man that he is made it very easy for me to connect with this book. This book is one of thirteen in The Rich Dad book series. I was very impressed with the amount of knowledge I received from reading this book. No other book has ever left me feeling as enlightened as this one did. I intend to read more books from The Rich Dad series. I have always been intrigued by the life of an entrepreneur and I was able to connect well with this book. I got to hear many first hand stories about Kiyosaki’s teachings growing up and how his mentor taught him the lessons to being rich. This book has encouraged me to take the same steps as Kiyosaki did in order to secure my financial future. Overall, this book has strengthened my goal of becoming an entrepreneur myself and left me with the hopes that one day I will have just as much success as Kiyosaki has.

    I like the away he applied the Biblical principles : to give is better than to receive; in this book he mentioned the power of generosity; and faith without works is dead. In entrepreneurship world, the entrepreneurs are tend to take a huge leap of faith which is facing the uncertainties of life that come along with risks. Mistakes are meant to be our lessons. The pain is excruciating indeed but the reward is incomparable.

This book doesn't teach about cheating and stuff like that but teaching about investing on things that will caused you to pay lesser tax; also exposing views of the world from different perspectives of people from different quadrants.

    This was a good book and could be rated 5 stars no doubt if you are completely new to the authors work - however I rated it 3 because I am familiar with much of Robert Kiyosaki's work and books... ... Which means I quickly realise when I find his work repetitive, re-hashed and the same old stuff written slightly differently which gets a bit boring and puts me off... ( don't get me wrong I believe in repetition as some would say it is " the mother of skill " ) - but really he should either stop re This was a good book and could be rated 5 stars no doubt if you are completely new to the authors work - however I rated it 3 because I am familiar with much of Robert Kiyosaki's work and books... ...

Nevertheless the authors original book " Rich Dad, Poor Dad " changed my life when I first read it many years ago - so been a loyal fan since ... To Our Continued Success!

    Great book. Covers some history about the Federal Reserve Bank and why the dollar has lost so much value. It gives insight into Kiyosaki's opinions on debt and leveraging it to gain wealth. I was familiar with the Fed (and its problems) before, but seeing it from Kiyosaki's viewpoint was interesting. Some other reviews have said this repeats a lot from Rich Dad/Poor Dad, but as this was the first Kiyosaki book I have read, it was mostly new information to me (cashflow quadrants, etc.). I only kno Great book. Covers some history about the Federal Reserve Bank and why the dollar has lost so much value.

I only knocked off one star because of the typos. It was also a bit repetitive, so although it was completely worth the initial reading, it is unlikely I'll read it again.
