Book Description

Oct. 10 2006 1933914025 1
Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki are both concerned. Their concern is that the rich are getting richer but America is getting poorer. Like the polar ice caps, the middle class is disappearing. America is becoming a two-class society.

Soon you will be either rich or poor. Donald and Robert want you to be rich.

The world is facing many challenges and one of them is financial. The entitlement mentality is epidemic, creating people who expect their countries, employers, or families to take care of them. Trump and Kiyosaki, both successful businessmen, are natural teachers who share a passion for education. They have joined forces to address these challenges, because they believe you cannot solve money problems with money. You can only solve money problems with financial education. Trump and Kiyosaki want to teach you to be rich. Why We Want You To Be Rich was written for you.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The wildly financially successful authors of this book state, early on, that a reader will not find in its pages specific advice on how to make or invest money. It's more a book of philosophy (note the "why" in the title), and if it's not exactly Kierkegaardian in scope or language, this collaboration of real estate magnate and rags-to-riches financial guru manages to entertain and to inform. Written in bite-size chunks and adorned with quotes (some from the authors' previous works or speeches) and graphs, it explains why some people get rich and others... well, don't. Some tales are shopworn: the many references to Warren Buffett are tales well told, for example, but what works best are the aphorisms and the personality type descriptions within the "CASHFLOW Quadrant"—no matter what you do for a living, in your heart are you an E, an S, a B or an I? (Key: E=employee; B=big business owner; S=self-employed, specialist or small business owner; I=investor.) But Trump and Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) together are a strangely winning combination (they've published this book jointly and privately—and a portion of its profits will be donated to charity). Bottom line: these Messrs. Money-bags know their business. We're talking billionaires here, and really, how can you argue with success? (Oct.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Repeat Repeat Nov. 28 2006
If you have ever read one of Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Poor Dad Books (particularly the Prophecy one) you will find this information a repeat.

In fact much of my issue with the book is not the information which is good, it's the style which is very repetitive. While I know that can be useful to help make a point, it is often overdone. Esp when it comes to talking about how successful Trump is - chapter after chapter. Everyone knows Trumps credentials and by the 2nd chapter we know Kiyosaki's as well.

Good ideas but not enough relevant examples on how to do things. If you have read one of Kiyosaki's books pass on it. If you haven't its worth a read. Not enough of Trumps writing to get a sense of anything other than he was just providing commentary on top of Kiyosaki's ideas

3.0 out of 5 stars You need to know what you're looking for. Nov. 28 2006
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is long on "why" and short on "how", so if you are looking for clear direction on HOW to become rich this is probably not the book for you and would rate a single star. If you wish to have your eyes opened to the possibility of a calamitous future and need the motivation to find ways of creating wealth, then you may want to pick up this book and it would rate closer to 5 stars.

While not exactly looking to become rich, I am somewhat disappointed in this book both from the way the material is presented and its style. Rather than integrating their thoughts into a single text, the book uses different fonts to highlight each author's opinions and this lends itself to plenty of repetition. Their dire predictions of the future headed our way, on the other hand, is illuminating.

The authors stress the importance of getting rich to avoid these serious financial consequences headed our way because of fiscal mismanagement of the last several decades by numerous governments, but other than emphasizing the importance of financial education and looking after your own affairs offer little else in the way of help. You might say this is akin to a carpenter telling the owner of a boat he should fix the leak in the bottom before the boat sinks, without offering to show the owner how to hammer or saw the required planks to complete the job.

This book will, or should, provide the reader with ample motivation to get rich in order to avoid risking serious financial difficulty in the future; however, you will have to rely on other sources to find out just how to go about accomplishing this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing New April 23 2009
By Colin
Format:Audio CD
There is nothing new in this book. Older books such as "The Richest Man in Babylon" and "The Wealthy Barber" give more direct, useful ideas without the endless self-promotion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy read, maybe a little too easy. Feb. 12 2010
I'm a big fan of Robert Kiyosaki (see: Rich Dad, Poor Dad), so I was happy to buy this book as a present for my dad. However, if you are looking for anything but a very, very light easy read, this book won't be for you. There is very little in-depth info here, just semi-motivational stories and anecdotes. Rich Dad, Poor Dad is also an easy read, but I found it to be more interesting than this one. This would be a good bathroom read for a beginner though.
