Excellent. Very informative and real. Robert is on of the few people able to tell you a story in a simple way. He can make complicated economics and politics understandable and sometimes in a humourous way.7 You will start to figure out how things are working behind the curtains.
I love everything he writes. Thank you Robert for your great work, thank you for keeping us awake!!! I love reading all his books, as it motivates me to keep going, keep learning and taking action. I can't wait to read your next book.

I'm not even completely done this book; however, just like any of his materials, he has a great way of taking the complex topic of finances and making it simple enough that even my young children can understand what's going on! I recommend anyone to start playing the Cashflow For Kids game with their kids and then move up to Cashflow 101 for adults. These are all very affordable education products that make a long term difference. Play it for free @ [...]. Positively, [...]

Robert does it again! I have ready many of his books and those of his team of advisors, this one is top-notch. I would have to say it's my favorite after Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Very powerful message in his typical direct and simple terms. Written for all of us to understand. He is amazing.

HASH(0xb7114ea0) out of 5 stars You are either open to it, or you are not. Either way, your choice. April 19 2011
By Michael D. Bernard - Published on
Format: Paperback
One of my most favorite sayings is "you are getting what you are getting, because you are doing what you are doing"

Just a quick thank you to Robert for his latest work. I find it inspiring. Of course, I would, because I have been a student of Roberts since 2008. I have attended 5 or 6 of his workshops in Scottsdale, and read most all of his books, over those years. Today I am a free man(at 57, not a spring chicken), with a free family. When I first became engaged in the Rich Dad philosophy, I was buried in debt, some good, but mostly bad, and had no idea how I would ever be able to retire, but today with Rich Dad and Roberts help, I am happy to report that I now have about 10 times more debt - but it is all good debt. What makes it good debt, is it all pays for itself(cash flow deals and businesses), and it pays me and my family too. 16 projects and counting. Who knows what 2011 will bring, but we have already surpassed what we accomplished in 2010 - and 2010 was a fantastic year, and it is only APRIL! Thanks Robert and the whole Rich Dad company. I can never repay you, but I can pass it on.

To those that cannot bring themselves to accept these teachings, or reject them as "won't work for me", or "B.S." or whatever, I am going to pass on to you the most important thing you will ever hear - and I learned it from a lifetime of learning. It goes something like this: "if you think it won't work for you, or if you think it will, you are right!(author unknown to me - but this theory is proven every day by me, and you, and everyone else)(by the way this also applies to everything in life - another incredibly liberating truth not taught in schools)

Embrace life, and learning, and growth. I encourage you to CHOOSE to BE a learner, to CHOOSE to DO what needs doing in light of your new knowledge, and to CHOOSE to HAVE peace, joy, and love in your life. Robert likes to say that he chooses to be rich, and he makes that choice every day. I say the same thing about happiness. I am happy, and I chose to be happy every day. Neither is a goal, or a destination. Both are choices. Both are a choice of who we are. And we all make those choices every day, one way or another.

Our choices either move us toward what we want, or they move us away. Which way are your choices taking you? Choose wisely!

HASH(0xb7173390) out of 5 stars The Unfair Advantage of Compensation April 7 2011
By Marevan - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've read most of Robert Kiyosaki's books. One by one, they connect the dots to help me understand what financial literacy really means to me on an individual level. What this book includes that others do not is the Unfair Advantage of Compensation, in particular, leveraging the power of compounding learning. For those of us who beat ourselves up as "late bloomers", this is a revelation!

HASH(0xb713bc9c) out of 5 stars Repetition is one of the keys to success May 23 2011
By J. W. Hagarty - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I agree with the low star reviewers that say there is not much new here. I am a huge Robert Kiyosaki fan but I can not rate this book above 3 stars.

I have read the entire Rich Dad series and while there is value in repetition some of his books are head and shoulders above the rest while others have a "time for another book" feel to them. This book is in the 2nd category.

Kiyosaki has a way of writing that really does suck you in and makes for an enjoyable read on what could easily be very dry and boring subjects. He opens this book with a metaphor about hunting monkeys who cant let go of fruits and nuts. The comparison is to people (employees) who can not let go of the old world and now out of date ideas that we have all grown up with.

Without a doubt this is important information to read, know, and understand.

My feeling is the value of this book is in the repetition.

If you are a Rich Dad fan and have read Rich Dad Poor Dad, Cashflow Quadrant, and Conspiracy of the Rich, you can safely skip this one.

If you are new to Rich Dad and have not read the earlier works you might get more value.

At the Rich Dad Forum a couple of years ago Kim Kiyosaki revealed that Rich Dad Poor Dad was originally meant to be a pamphlet to promote the Cashflow 101 board games. Many of the earlier books emphasize the importance of getting and playing the Cashflow 101 game.

In this book Robert seems more interested in promoting the Rich Dad Education classes and Coaching programs than in really offering any new information.

On the other hand, for $10 and the couple of hours it takes to read this book you will be reminded of the core Rich Dad philosophy.

So, I give Unfair Advantage a mixed review.

Again, this will have more value to you if you are a Rich Dad newbie. Veterans can safely skip it or borrow a copy.

Best of luck in Escaping the Rat Race!

HASH(0xb7177630) out of 5 stars The only rich dad I have! May 1 2011
By Mickey Knight - Published on
Format: Paperback
"The plantation system is alive and well, even in the information age"
Robert T. Kirosaki Unfair Advantage: The Power of Financial Education.

I have been a fan of Robert Kiyosaki since I read his book Rich Dad / Poor Dad in 2008. I was late coming to the party; I'd not known how the monetary system worked until after the crash. I was looking for answers and read over a hundred books from the "Wealth of Nations" by Adam Smith to Jim Cramers "Real Money". A friend told me about Rich Dad and I got a copy. It was different, but like many new treatments you have to expend effort to get the full effect of the "medicine". It changed the way I look a wealth, business and the world. I have read several of his other books to boot.

I was fortunate not to have lost anything in the markets as I had cashed out to speculate in flipping houses. I was also fortunate to have sold my flip house two weeks before the housing market melted down. I saw it coming and didn't try to get what the house appraised, but made a nice profit anyway. I was lucky.

I was lucky because I didn't know what I was doing. I was being tossed on waves of media hype and misinformation, being led down the primrose path to financial Armageddon. Many of the books I had read on real estate and investing were cookie cutter manuals designed to provide training a particular field of investing. Buy duplexes or trailer parks or sell options out of the money, it was useful information, but didn't really have a vision. Most were expressly designed with "safety" in mind or "low risk". Just follow the examples above and all of you dream will come true. I will quote the famous investor Jessie Livermore ... "NOT".

Rich Dad's books do not offer such ideas or advice. They require thought and a good deal of introspection. His programs are not for everyone, obviously, not everyone will get what he is teaching in his books. The ideas they present are pretty radical. Rich Dad is no Kevin Trudeau, however. Mr. Kiyosaki's books are honest, informative and are valuable, but only if you open your mind to the possibilities.

This book pulls no punches as to who caused the financial meltdown. Unfair Advantage doesn't sugar coat the problems we face and it names name as to who is really at fault behind the scenes of sub prime mortgage fiasco. You will be surprised when the truth comes out. Even more, it offers real solutions that real people can use to solve real problems. It is not a "how to get rich quick" guide, although if you do not learn how to increase your earning power with the education this book gives, you aren't paying attention.

I believe this is the best book Robert Kiyosaki has written to date about his philosophy and financial literacy training. If you have never read a book by Richard Kiyosaki, I suggest that you begin with this one. This book is not a rehash of previous books, and while it does touch on a lot of the same material from some of his earlier works
it clearly has added more value to the series. It is not a substitute for the Rich Dad series as there is much useful information that is never mention in this book. It clearly states some of the more arcane subjects from previous books in a way that really opened my eyes. If you are a fan of the Rich Dad series, you will want to get this book. It gives a fresh view on the Rich Dad philosophy.

I was raised by parent that told me to go to school, work hard and get a good job. My parents taught me the best they knew, but unlike Robert I only had on, albeit Poor Dad. Robert Kiyosaki is the only Rich Dad I have and I am grateful.

HASH(0xb7173f48) out of 5 stars Where's the beef? April 1 2011

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Rich dad was an awesome book. Great story, good lifelong lessons. This book adds nothing to the mix. Robert, please give us some action items. If I want a motivational talk, I'll read rich dad again. This was not a good investment. I was hoping for something new, but alas, there is nothing new to see here.
