    I read this book a few years ago and found it nothing but hot air and repeated empty bla bla. I dumped the book somewhere towards the end, as I did not wish to waste any more time.

    Why do I bother to review this book now? The answer is clear: I am afraid that Mr. Trump's big words (such as I will make America great again) are also nothing but hot air. Not only that. I am also afraid that Mr. Trump's belligerent attitude towards Iran might lead to a WWIII in case Mr. Trump succeeded in becoming President of the United States.

    Mr. Trump may be a successful business man (I think he is very good at delegating), but I think he is a total failure as an author. I hope he won't get the chance to be a failure at running our country.

    There is a German word for people like Mr. Trump. It is Dampfplauderer (which can be translated into steam-chatterer).

    Sorry if this review went a little off topic. But is it really off topic? Dampfplauderer remains Dampfplauderer.


    P.S. (Nov. 3, 2015): Reading the book It Can't Happen Here, by Sinclair Lewis, I learned a perfect translation for Dampfplauderer. It is gas bag.


    This review was written in summer 2015 and edited on July 23, 2016.

    P.P.S. (July 23, 2016) For more about Donald Trump, please read this article:

    Trash like this shows how little respect the 'authors' have for suckers who buy their books. ( I did not buy it, but was unfortunate enough to open it only for the excruciating eye-ball trauma-inducing time necessary to stub my toe on its shallowness. ) All marketing BS, made to lure and then fleece people looking to better their lives. Snake salesmen of old would have been run out of town, or lynched for less obvious fraud. Filled with useless information in an obvious attempt to lure fools with bits of sparkly nonsense. This pretty well sums up Trumps campaign, too. It deserves negative stars, along with tar and feathers.

    Got this as a Christmas gift. It is a TERRIBLE book.
    The whole book is them sucking up to each other, saying how much they love to teach, and how you should buy their other books. That is honestly the entire book.

    DO NOT BUY THIS - HUGE WASTE OF MONEY!

    Written in the curt, do-it-or-die speaking style both men are known for. The quote-notes below are large, so if you lack time, just read this revealing Trump-Kiyosaki conversation :

    -----
    Trump : “There’s something else. You and I look at making money as a game. We have fun. We enjoy the game. Sometimes we lose, but mainly we win… but most people don’t see making money as a game. They think of it as life and death, winners and losers.“

    Kiyosaki : “Survival, the struggle for life or death itself. Which is why they are terrified of losing… That’s why they look at investing as risky.”

    Trump : “And wind up in risky investments. It’s a financial tragedy.”

    Kiyosaki : “Their loss of money?”

    Trump : “No! The fun they miss out on. Making money is fun! Life is supposed to be fun. And millions of people are living in fear instead of having fun. That’s the tragedy.”

    ---------

    Investment questions to always ask yourself:

    *** Find great investments?
    *** Know a good deal from a bad deal?
    *** Invest with less of your own money and more OPM?
    *** Get the experience without risking money?
    *** Handle losses?
    *** Find good advisors?

    “It is not the quest for money that makes me rich. It is the quest for knowledge. It is the desire to learn more, do more, accomplish more, and help… Money is just the score, a measure to tell me how we are doing.”

    “The reason why amateurs are amateurs is that they do not love the game enough .” - The War of Art, by S. Pressfield
    *** Love what you do
    *** Have patience
    *** Act in the face of fear

    “The winners of the game are those who love the game the most. If you do not love the game, get out. There’s probably something more useful for you to do. Something more exciting for you.”

    *** asset
    *** liability
    *** management
    *** insurance

    “Most people are good at reducing expenses, but very few people are good at increasing sales.”

    “Once you have control, get creative.”

    “I play to win. And the prize goes to the one who plays the game with the least risk and the most confidence.”

    “Most people invest money and do not invest much time. Donald and I invest a lot of time before we invest money. We prepare to invest… Entrepreneurship is not risky. Being unprepared is risky.”

    “In life, talent is not enough. If you want a starting position, you need to take yourself to a whole new level.”

    “What I want in life is up to me. There is no one in the way. If I want something, I know that desire is not enough. I need to do what it takes to be a winner before I can win.”

    “Creativity is infinite. Therefore money is infinite.”

    “I saw people further ahead in life, simply because they had taken their education and their professional careers seriously.”

    “Learn to make money with money. All you have to do is take $10, and see how long it takes you to double it to $20. You could buy something and sell it on the web. If you are good, you may double your money in one day.”

    Other important questions :
    *** Leverage : “Can I train other people to work for me?”
    *** Control : “Do I have a protected system that belongs to me?”
    *** Creativity : “Will the business allow me to be creative and develop my own personal style and talents?”
    *** Expandability : “Can my business grow indefinitely?”
    *** Predictability : “Can my income grow if I do what is expected of me? If I am successful, and keep expanding my business, will my income increase with my success and hard work?”

    “To be successful, often you need to choose between the death of the old you, and the birth of a new you. Many people stop growing because they are afraid of dying. The old identity refusing to commit ego suicide. So life remains the same as the world goes on.”

    The authors say that they feel that people should be rich so that they can have money to take care of themselves. They say that too many people rely on the government to take care of them when they get older; i.e. social security. They say that the government is not reliable and you should be able to take care of yourself. Managing your money well is important. Financial education is important. They suggest investing in real estate and if you have the skills and capability, perhaps start your own business. If you do have money, you need to learn how to make it grow and protect yourself since when you have money, others want to take it from you. Money gives freedom, choices and a sense of security, since you cannot rely on jobs giving stability anymore. Very practical, interesting read.

    Awesome book! It's not a how to get rich book, but more of a why you should be rich book.

    Great read for any entrepreneur or middle-class person!

    Me getting this book for free as a joke gift for Christmas:

    description

    I think it's aimed at four year olds who just learned how to read. I couldn't bother with anything more than skimming through it. There's lots of bragging and patting each others' backs while giving brilliant business advice such as Think creatively, Apply yourself or Trust your judgement. Woah!
    Didn't see too much real advice such as Evade taxes, Get a huge inheritance or do shady businesses and don't pay your employees, but hey, if you've been doing these things already you don't need to know them.

    I didn't like the style of this book, dual opinions on many different topics regarding wealth creation. It was a horrible read for the good first part but it did have interesting stories sprinkled throughout the book to drive me to the second half, where it was better. Some of the stories will stick with me, like Trump's about the history student who seemed like an expert on WWII. He said learning about it made him realize he needed to learn about WWI and the history that preceeded that. Learning about the war made him understand how little he knew. I think this is a wonderful perspective I think we could all benefit from having the ability to grasp, considering the wealth of knowledge out there, none of us know as much as we think. I still have a hard time believing both Trump and Kiyosaki embrace the notion of the 'rich getting richer' and 'tax cuts hurt the economy' rhetoric given what they should know to the contray. It was a decent book, about what I expected from Trump but Kiyosaki never fails to deliver in any of his books. This one fell a bit short, but still worth the read.

    Not a great book, but not the worst one I have ever read.

    The advice given is to invest in real estate and participate in multi-level marketing schemes. Of course, the book is from 2006, when real estate was a lot more popular than now. (and maybe multi-level marketing as well). Of course, in the subsequent years we saw that at least every man, woman and child investing in real estate perhaps wasn'
    t a hot idea. And as far as multi-level marketing-the advice given doesn't seem to take the products sold into consideration as well. Other than this often times flawed advice, I am not sure what these men are offering other then to show how accomplished they are.
    Additionally, Kiyosaki seems to constantly condescend his real (poor) father, who seems like he was quite an honorable man from the discription. Finally, both men seem to put down advice like live below your means and pay of your debt. While neither of these are particularly fun or enjoyable, I don't think our economy would be where it is today had people lived beneath their means and paid off their debts. And I still don't know why they want me to be rich.

    That said, there was some geninuely good advice in the book, such as to love what you do (and what you invest in), and to urge people to invest in things that are transparent. (Which makes sense). While stocks may not be 100% transparent, there are ways to skew stock investing to ways more transparent.

    Very enlightening on the personality of both men. After reading this, I would not worry at all about Trump being President! Also, for an older book, they described what was going to happen to our economy to a T Very inspirational book as I am moving into the B quadrant myself.
