Author Notes

Robert Kiyosaki was born and raised in Hawaii, and is a fourth-generation Japanese-American. He attended college in New York, and after graduating, joined the Marine Corps and served in Vietnam as an officer and helicopter gunship pilot.

After the war, Robert worked for the Xerox Corporation as a salesman. In 1977, he started a company that brought the first nylon Velcro 'surfer wallets' to market. In 1985 he founded an international education company that taught business and investing to students throughout the world.

In 1994 Robert sold his business and retired at the age of 47. During this somewhat short-lived retirement, Robert, collaborating with co-author Sharon Lechter, a C.P.A. and his business partner, wrote the bestselling book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad".

Booklist Review

The Rich Dad series, begun in 1997, is based on Kiyosaki's childhood observations of the lessons passed down by his father, a well-educated wage slave, versus those of his closest friend's father, an eighth-grade dropout and multimillionaire. The difference, he determined, is that the poor and middle class work for money, but the rich let money work for them. The wisdom passed on by the rich dad is a type of financial literacy that is never taught in schools. Kiyosaki also developed a board game, Cashflow 101, which is used in his seminars to generate ideas on how to achieve financial independence. This book, the seventh in the series, contains real-life stories of people who applied the Rich Dad principles to their lives and are moving from the rat race of employment to the role of business owner and investor. In their own words, regular folks show how they went from financial struggle and crisis to taking control of their financial education and future. DavidSiegfried.

Library Journal Review

Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) follows up his numerous best-selling guides to investment with these profiles of a diverse cross section of two dozen people who have earned their business success by implementing his powerful "Rich Dad" philosophy. Building on his always sound principle of "elevating the financial well-being of humanity," the author now lets adherents of his financial advice tell their own stories and share with listeners how they put into practice his disciplined approach to money management and made their money work for them. The lively narration from Jake Colman, Kat Cressida, and others spices up this solid information that explains why the "no time to invest" excuse does not apply and why you are never too young or too old to begin work on becoming financially independent. A sure bet for financial planning collections in public libraries. Dale Farris, Groves, TX (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
