Kiyosaki's latest entry in his endless 'Rich Dad' series melds watered down economic conspiracy theory with his plain spoken approach to real estate focused investing. For those that are completely unaware of the function of the Federal Reserve and the mechanisms and workings of global finance, ie most people, the information in this book may be potentially valuable and eye opening. Kiyosaki barely skims the surface of this subject however. Edward Griffin's, 'The Creature From Jekyll Island,' wh ...more

After the first couple of chapters I figured out that this book was kind of like some pop song where you have 3 lines that you repeat over and over. Maybe it's because I have a general understanding of the history he is trying to summarize but I rather think that since he has established his name he thinks he can continue to support his cash flow project by writing empty content books.

I had expected much more and was hoping to learn some practical advice about how to survive in the current and f

Too bad a minus star isn't available. I've been curious about the "rich dad" brand for a while, so I borrowed this from the library. It's one page of self-promotional sales screech after another (he shills his games and other books), padded with badly garbled economic thinking (the Federal Reserve prints money) and flatitudes like "money is knowledge" (one of the 8 "new rules of money"). Yeah, there are some unoriginal business ideas that would've fit on a single page of paper. If he had any pub ...more

Mr. Kiyosaki's advice is very sound. Unfortunately, readers have to sift through a great number of Rich Dad marketing pages and repetitive talking points to get to the meat of this book.

My wife bought a fried chicken from Wal-Mart last night. As I dug into the greasy beast, I remembered one of the many reasons I don't like fast, processed food. Most of the "chicken" consisted of fried breading, rather than fleshy good stuff. The little poultry meat I found was delicious, but our family will be

Now that I've caught up on my pop-culture reading from circa 2006, I thought I'd treat myself to something current and exponentially more useful. Robert Kiyosaki's latest book in the Rich Dad series was written "entirely online" earlier this year and published just a few months ago. Since the US is in the midst of the largest fiscal storm the world has ever seen, it's no surprise this book is written like Farenheit 9/11 for money.

I read Kiyosaki's first book in the series, Rich Dad, Poor Dad bac

Kiyosaki expounds on some of the rules of money. A lot of the book gives a history of money and how we got to where we are now. What most people are naive about are that our American dollar really has no value-that it is only as good as our governments word-which isn't too reliable really. The Conspiracy theory is basically that there have been a handful of greedy people 'in bed' with greedy politicians. How in the world was Nixon able to take the US Dollar off of the gold standard in the 70's a ...more

I have read his other books. This book is pretty much similiar to them. Talks mostly on the same points. Not too much different. So if you already read his prior books I am not sure if it is worth it to buy this book that in the end will certainly make Kiyosaki more money. I always found it interesting too that he never had kids of his own. I know in my own life my kids are the real drain on my pocket book and if I didn't have them I would have so, so much more time to invest in other projects i ...more

Gift from Sid. Like so many of his other books, there are kernels of truth amongst the crap. Without the knowledge of several dozen other finance books under my belt, it would be hard to tell the difference between the two.

This guy is always pushing the latest bubble. I find it ironic that he became a best selling author with his advice to buy real estate. Then the real estate bubble burst. I'm impressed with the hubris it takes to write a book here that offers gold and commodities as the solut

I like Robert Kiyosaki's message in general, and I think he did a good job with this book in explaining how the economy works and why it is important to increase your financial education. He explains how people who understand how things work (e.g. taxes, investments, businesses) have an unfair advantage. It's true. What I most appreciate about his teachings is the distinction between an asset (something that puts money in your pocket) and liabilities (that which takes money out of your pocket). ...more

This book was very informative and showed how "the system" is rigged against working class people. Kiyosaki shows his readers that, even as children in school, we are taught to work for the rich and the entrepreneurs instead of joining the leagues of those whom we work for. The main problem I have with this book is the amount of advertising he gives to his other books, games and services (via his website). I suppose this is his way of making sure he continues to earn money. It was an interesting ...more

Over the past few months I've been learning more about investing and personal finance. I've seen Robert Kiyoaski (of "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" fame) mentioned all over the place but have not yet read one of his books. Admittedly this book is not his most well-known book, but it was published at an interesting time: March 2009 -- the most acute period of the recent recession. I was hopeful that he would have a chance to provide updated advice given the unfolding recession.

This book was bad -- and I ev

Robert T. Kiyosaki’s purpose in writing his book, Conspiracy of the Rich, is to let his readers know that no matter what financial situation they are in right, there is always a solution to their money problems. Kiyosaki gives confidence to his readers with this message. This book tells the reader where they need to start to get their financial freedom and how rich people manage their money. He explains how rich people invest and spend their money to accomplish their financial goals. This book

This book offers some good advice, although much like most of Kiyosaki's books, it has very good points but is light on content.

The book covers the past, present and future of the U.S. (and world) economy. After having read Rich Dad's Guide to Investing in Gold and Silver by Michael Maloney, I much prefer Mr. Maloney's depth of coverage with regards to the history of world monetary policy. Kiyosaki makes some good points and offers good advice for the present and future outlooks for the economy

Ok, unlike any of his previous series, this is indeed a good read. If you like economics, and wonder how the world end up as it is today, this book may give you some insights.

Goodreads in their infinite wisdom seems to have wiped the entire review I typed. Not going to repeat myself. So just read the book. It's good.

I bought this book on impulse at the bus station bookstore because my phone was dead, and I needed something to read for the long ride. I have a love/hate relationship with these types of self-help books, but this one inspired me, and I expect it will have a significant impact on at least my short term behavior as I'm coming to a major crossroads soon. The impetus behind the content of the book is a bit demoralizing (the imminent demise of the US economy), but the ideas and spirit of the book ar ...more

I read this online, a chapter at a time, before it came out in stores this month. I have read a number of his books and found them to be 'nice'. They basically gleaned the topic but do not get down to real specifics. He does have seminars, which are free to attend, where the pressure is to pay for his in-depth training programs which usually run a couple of days. This book isn't a how to book so it is more informative that some of his others and I enjoyed it much more. I have been feeling the ne ...more

Najčastejšou frázou, ktorá sa s rôznymi obmenami opakovala skoro celou knihou, bolo spojenie "xy si vysvetlíme v ďalšej kapitole". Ale musím povedať, že som sa dozvedel rôzne zaujímavé veci. Kiyosaki podáva informácie z finančného sveta spôsobom, ktorému sa dá porozumieť :)

Zistíte, že bohatstvo je o tom, že tlačíte vlastné peniaze :) ide len o to, prísť na spôsoby, ktorými to docielite. A, samozrejme, opäť zdôrazňuje dôležitosť aktív (vecí/majetku, z ktorých vám pravidelne plynú peniaze "bez rob

I still have to re-read this book so that I can learn even more from it.

This was definitely a good book!
I was delighted in discovering the position of the author Robert Kiyosaki on issues such as the Federal Reserve, excessive money supply, the low quality of education, etc.
Although I don't agree with all the positions of the author, I enjoyed this book.
This book explains really well these topics to people that aren't aware of them. However if you already knew most of it this book will feel repetitive.
This book doesn't also give much practical advice, for that othe

Before reading that book I didn't believe that there are such conspiracy against us , that conspiracy indeed as Robert said began with the lack of proper education . Also before reading that book I thought that global currency us dollar is backed up be gold , he told us that currency means I owe you and it's just an idea , don't freeze your money in saving accounts . You must know the difference between asset an liability & Know when to focus and when to diversify..

Very good information, though sensationalist at times. It's important to recognize the ways in which we all are cogs in the grand industrial/financial machine...and unless we have the courage and imperative to take our financial education into our own hands, we are destined to mediocrity, while Big Banking profits from our ignorance.

This book is not incredibly well-written, as the author directly acknowledges. It is, however, very informative and motivating. Anyone with the desire and wherewitha

Kiyosaki's advice to invest in cash generating assets seems like it should be a no brainer. Too bad most people concentrate on capital gains generating assets that are taxed much more heavily. I also enjoyed Kiyosaki's history lesson on the financial industry. This information is presented as a "conspiracy", but it is more just "things no one taught you in school" that are costing you big time. Also, in some ways the book is a product of 2008 and 2009 which is when it was written. Still, I thoug ...more

I tried, but just couldn't, finish this book.

At first, it's actually quite interesting. Personally, I don't take this guy too seriously, but I was going for entertainment value. And entertain he does, maybe for the first third of the book.

By the time I "cut the cord", he was talking about a concept he terms "the B-I triangle", which should have been called "the B.S. bonfire of the vanities."

So...yeah, if you want to be entertained, read a little until you get bored. Then cut your losses.
Stef
4 stars for the content. It would have been a 3 otherwise as it is quite repetitive.
Trisha
There wasn't much new in this book that the author hasn't said in any of his other several books. While his books in general seem to be rather repetitive, this one was extremely repetitive between chapters. Still, the message is a good and through provoking one, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend this book to anyone who has read his others already. (But you can't blame him for trying to pump out more books, after all, it creates more derivatives for him!)
