This is probably the best book on business and entrepreneurship I've ever read. Simultaneously inspiring and daunting, it contains fantastic insights and candid lessons into what it takes to succeed in the rough and tumble of the real world. My biggest takeaway is that I shouldn't be asking myself if I have what it takes to succeed in business -- the correct question is whether I'm willing to do what it takes to learn it and keep going.

The contents were great, and I only have one complaint: this...more
Their five points of the Midas Touch, the five fingers: Strength of Character, F.O.C.U.S., Brand, Relationships, and Little Things That Count are great points to keep in mind in the business world. However, I felt the book could have been condensed into a pamphlet highlighting these five things. Though it was interesting reading Donald Trump's stories and his crazy expenditures on golf courses! Such as $275 million to refurbish one in California, I know Trump said he spent that much cause he doe...more

"Midas Touch: Why Some Entrepreneurs Get Rich - And Why Most Don't" by Donald J. Trump and Robert T. Kiyosaki is the second collaboration between these two business tycoons, and a very good book for the entrepreneur or would-be-entrepreneur. I enjoyed their first effort, "Why We Want You To Be Rich," but I think this one is even better and more timely for those wanting to start or grow their own businesses. There is a short foreword by Mark Burnett and then five main chapters. The authors relate...more

A fantastic book for those interested in separating the wheat from the chaff. You might think this book is just some quickie that Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki threw together to make a buck but the truth is these multi millionaires don't need a quick buck and they don't have to take time out of their precious and busy lives to write this book for people like us still wanting to make the climb.

This somewhat slim book may look like it would be a fast read but in reality if you find the informat...more
It takes a huge amount of courage to admit your mistakes; even more to admit them in excruciating detail in the pages of a book with your own name on the front. So I’m in awe of one of the authors, Robert Kiyosaki, who has so generously described many of the mistakes he made in business so the rest of us are less likely to make the same mistakes. (I found myself wincing through many of the passages.) It was also good to read more of Donald Trump’s business philosophy, particularly his attention...more

Trump and Kiyosaki are at it again, doing more for American than any 'occupy' protest could ever dream of doing. These financial powerhouses are right, what we need in this country are more entrepreneurs, good ones, not wannabes. Money is not an evil thing. It is an inanimate object, a tool. These two men, entrepreneurs,show us why having such a great tool is so important and how using it properly can enact the right kind of change-real change our nation, and the world, needs. Wrap up a copy to...more

I would recommend this book to every body who are budding entrepeneurs. As thee chapter on branding really strikes out, most companies may have good products, but when the branding does not strike out, the companies dies very soon to the waves of other companies out there. Seeking for partner is equally important to compliment each other: the dreamer, the business person and the SOB. Ilove this book, I would definitly read again, because Midas touch is a book that tells you the quality that shou...more

I really enjoyed this book. There is no one better to teach us about the "Midas Touch" than Trump and Kiyosaki. The focus of this book was divided into five easy parts which kept me engaged . It's a great read for anyone who is interested in becoming an entrepreneur or is one. Mr. Trump and Mr. Kiyosaki use their personal success for each divided section. It is a wonderful book that contains practical advice if you want to be successful.
In the Midas Touch, business titans Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki, reveal what they consider to be the key attributes entrepreneurs need to master to be successful. Each finger of the hand is assigned one of the five attributes and in each chapter, the authors share relevant personal stories followed by a review of the major points and action items you can apply to help you develop your own Midas Touch.

This book is an awesome book for those who want to start a business. It pretty much teaches you how to become a successful entrepreneur. It has diagrams, questionnaires to ask yourself, notes at the end of each chapter and so forth. Very awesome book! If I ever taught business I would use this book for practical pointers.
I have several sectional reviews posted on YouTube. The Kiyosaki and Trump combo play off each other much better in this one than in "Why We Want You to be Rich"...Trump doesn't mail this one in and the discussions of resilience! Brand! And over-all entrepreneurship are fantastic.
I liked this book and didn't expect to like it. They worked in a good model later in the book which I find myself explaining to others. Good book for angel investors and entrepreneurs seeking investment. Lots of valuable lessons presented in a useful way.

Finally read this book since I won it as a lottery prize when Robert and Kim came to Singapore for a talk at the NLB and both of them signed the book. Good points were made in the book though I was never too interested in the self help and motivation books...

a fun and funny read, probably the only book u need to read if u have never read anything from either of these authors. I don't think they are great teachers, but we need to hear these rich guys tell us how it is.
I really enjoyed this book. Donald Trump is impressive and both he and Robert Kiyosaki show no shame in admitting their past business mistakes and outlining how they learned from them.
The book contains a lot of useful examples. I really enjoyed reading it. Mr. Trump and Mr. Kiyosaki did a pretty good job with their second book together.
Very motivational book filled with interesting stories from each author. It is a worthy read for anyone interested in Trump or Kiyosaki.
