Why the Rich Are Getting Richer

What Is Financial Education...really?

Book - 2017
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Kiyosaki believes that our educational system-- and the poor job it does on financial education-- is what causes the gap between the rich and everyone else. In this book, he explains why savers are losers, debt and taxes make the rich richer, and why going to school, working hard, getting out of debt, and investing for the long term in the stock market is the worst financial advice for most people. Kiyosaki and Wheelwright share ideas on how to survive-- and thrive-- into the future.

Does this author who is a friend of Dumpy Trumpy teach you how to bankrupt a casino and start a fake University? Does it teach you how to not pay your contractors or sue people that try to get you to pay money owed?

The rich are getting richer because republicons are destroying the middle class.

Wow, so much hate in this comment section for a man and book with a simple message. I was the person who first requested the library order this book after having read it myself. I have read all of Mr. Kiyosaki's most popular books, and find this one to be very excellent as well. SO WHAT if he didn't say something radically different than what he's said in other books. I can only think of one reason why the comment section is full of vitriol, and one comment makes it quite clear in particular - that Mr. Kiyosaki wrote two books with Donald Trump before Trump even hinted at running for President. Robert himself has said in his online podcast that he doesn't agree with Trump on more than a number of things. Jeez! Take a breather. Robert has criticized the President many times in his Rich Dad Channel podcast on YouTube. Get a grip you guys. Be happy the man even continues to write great books like this; he certainly doesn't need the money. I give this book 5 stars, and highly recommend it for reading material.

Very disappointed. The author is promoting himself, not helping the readers. Not recommended.

If he is friend of President Trump, I will definitely read it

This book is more or less a re-hash of what he's said in his many other books. I won't purchase it because of his continued association with Donald Trump (and it's forced me to donate the rest of his stuff), but if you're able to overlook that...

...there's nuggets of truth. His books aren't a get rich fast scheme, but more of a good eye opener to change how we see money and how the ultra rich see it. And ultimately, the theme in this and other of his books is money doesn't change attitudes towards it overnight--or else far fewer lotto winners would be worse off than before they won. Kiyosaki's books are a good starting point, but I'd supplement it by doing one's own research on whichever endeavor one chooses to use to expand their investments.

This is the first book I read from this author. Although the writing is not excellent but I like the way he put the concept into " super simple".

It is a book from which I learned something I did not know before.

At least one should know what a successful entrepreneur is talking about.

No, he never said that his steps are "get rich quick" . He advises people should work from the bottom up, should appreciate the persons who are doing the physical work, etc....

NO, this is a book about attitude, about teams, and about working hard, first and working smart.

NO, you don't need a college degree, especially the degrees that cost too much money, and are useless in teach you nothing.

My spouse does not have a degree, I have a Ph.D, in Chemical engineering and retired from Fortune100 Company. I consider my spouse and I are both survivors of this economy ans intellectual development . I have seen my children and their friends' survival strategies in this environment. NO, one does not need to spend on a useless degree.

Yes, one need education. The author says one can educate oneself, one does not need to buy a degree.

Talk about hype! My goodness what a load!
Any book that has a picture of Donald Trump on the first page and says they emulate him is as far as you should go.
I take strong objection to anyone who has get rich quick schemes and most importantly says you do not require higher education.
Maybe you don't require a university degree - but without it you don't have any future. As well, money does not buy class. You must have education now in order to have a quality life. No exceptions. You need education to have understanding of the world. I don't need to explain this.
The only part I agree with, is you do need to have many options, investments, perhaps a side business, assets, AND higher education.
