Summary

Summary

Few would argue with the fact that, on many fronts, we are a world in crisis. And there are two sides to every crisis, be it a leadership crisis, an economic crisis, an education crisis or a moral crisis. The two side to crisis are danger and opportunity.

Robert Kiyosaki's new book, Second Chance...for Your Money and Your Life, uses the lessons from the past and a brutal assessment of the present to prepare readers to see---and seize---the future.
If readers can train their minds to see what their eyes cannot, in a world that is becoming increasingly more 'invisible' and moving at a high rate of speed, they can have a second chance at creating the life they've always wanted.

The global problems we face cannot be solved by the same minds and people who created them and today's world demands the ability to see the future and prepare for what lies ahead...prepare for the opportunities as well as the challenges.

Like it or not, we are all involved in the greatest evolutionary event in human history. The Industrial Age is over and the Information Age continues to accelerate. The visible agents of change have become invisible...and harder to see. And the future belongs to those who can train their minds, use the past to see the future, and take the steps to create the positive change they want to see in their lives.

Second Chance is a guide to understanding how the past will shape the future and how you can use Information Age tools and insights to create a fresh start. This book is a guide to facing head-on the dangers of the crises around us--and steps and tips for seizing the opportunities they present.


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".

Publisher's Weekly Review

Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) gave self-publishing street cred when his first book hit the New York Times Bestseller List. As he recounts in this book, much of his success has been self-made, independent of employers or government. He has little respect for those who work for a paycheck as they are the most taxed and least secure in their wealth. He instructs people to gain financial independence by putting money into assets that produce cash flow-starting a business or investing in rental properties (the latter being his investment preference). Along the way, Kiyosaki delivers some doomsday prophecies such as another big financial crash in 2016); pats himself on the back (he predicted the 2007 crash), touts his amazing success; pitches for his company and products; and pays homage to his two heroes-Buckminster Fuller and his rich dad. He claims that anyone can benefit from his advice, but his track record as a teacher is thin, as he admits, "I haven't seen them since so I do not know what happened after our discussion." The book is long, repetitive, and disorganized. It alternates between rambling prose and a faux Q&A format, e.g. "Q: What are Ponzi schemes" .... "A: That might be a good word to look up..." There's no denying Kiyosaki's financial success. Whether or not his advice can help the rest of us is doubtful but for those interested, this is an addition to his extensive collection of writings.
