This text, the follow-up to Rich Dad, Poor Dad reveals why some people work less, earn more, pay less in taxes, and feel more financially secure than others. The author argues that it is simply a matter of knowing which quadrant to work from and when. Have you ever wondered: What is the difference between an employee and a business owner?; Why do some investors make money ...more

هذا الكتاب امتداد لكتاب الأب الغني والأب الفقير ..
الكتاب فيه شرح تفصيلي لكيفية إدارة المال بشكل احترافي ومعرفة لعبة المال الرأسمالية ..

أنصح بقراءته بشدة .. علماً بأن كل كتب كيوساكي أنصح بها لسهولة إيصال المعلومة وإقناعك بشكل كبير بها ..
------------

أعدتُ قراءة الكتاب هذه الأيام لحاجتي لوزن الأمور من جديد .. بالنصبة للمصادر المالية والنفقات ..

حينما قرأت الكتاب .. عرفت الفرق بوضوح بينه وبينه كتابي " عقلية الرجل المليونير " وكتاب " أغنى رجل في بابل " ... والذي ختمتهما حديثاً ..

For those of you who want to take control of your financial future, I recommend the Rich Dad, Poor Dad books. This is the second book in his series. It will not give you specific details of how to make those changes. It changes the way you think about money and opens your eyes to possibilites. Hopefully, it gives you the courage to make changes in your life to be financially successful. I know that Robert Kiyosaki's books have made drastic changes to our lives and it was only 1 year ago that my ...more

كتاب رائع قد يغير مجرى حياتك

تذكر دعاء النبى صلى الله عليه وسلم "اللهم إنى أسألك الهدى والتقى والعفاف والغنى"

وتذكر كذلك دعائه "اللهم إنى أعوذ بك من الكفر والفقر"

اللهم اجعل الدنيا فى أيدينا لا فى قلوبنا واجعلنا نسخر علمنا وأموالنا في سبيل نصرة دينك

It's an alright book. Gives you a bit to think about but nothing revolutionizing. The last 40 pages or so are just blatant propaganda for his first book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, and his CASHFLOW games. If you're going to read one of Kiyosaki's books then you might as well read the original:Rich Dad, Poor Dad (and be aware that Kiyosaki's onlysuccessfulventure is the Rich Dad franchise).

Conclusion: Skip it.

Financial freedom is a vastly different from financial security.


For those of you who have read Rich Dad Poor Dad this book is basically an extension of the lessons taught in that book. Robert Kiyosaki gives a brief description of his journey as an adult going from a short stint living in his car to financial freedom by taking advantage of tax laws and creating assets that create passive income. (My personal gushings about this book can be found here.)

Recommended reading. Its a bit high level and gives no direction on what to "DO". It is more about changing a mindset and identifying where you are. No more fooling yourself. This book did inspire me and now I am trying to think of ways to change my financial future. I have started to execute. Exciting times ahead .....

قليلةٌ هي الكتب التي لا تتركها قبل أن تتغيّر داخليًا وإلى الأبد، وبعض هذا التغيير قد لا يكون في البداية ظاهرًا، لكنّه يظلّ قلقًا واضطراباً في الداخل يتحيّن لحظته.
أحد الأمثلة على هذه الكتب كتب "كايوساكي" : كتاب (الأب الغني والأب الفقيرRICH DAD ,POOR DAD)، و كتاب (النموذج الرباعي للتدفق النقدي CASH FLOW QUADRANT)

Why I Read this Book: Anytime a book or author gets as much notoriety as the Cashflow brand has, I feel it is my duty to at least see what the fuss is about. Plus, I can always stand to learn a little bit more about the financial component to success.

Review:

For those of you who have not yet read the original Rich Dad Poor Dad or at least its review on this site, I recommend you do so before diving into Cashflow. This book is more of a sequel to Kiyosaki’s first book than anything else, however i

Recommended to Nola by: Kiyosaki
This is an intriguing follow-up to "Rich Dad, Poor Dad," and I enjoyed the way Kiyosaki devised his four quadrants. He definitely has a point about the difference between each quadrant or type of person. He provides sensible advice for transiting between columns.

As an interesting aside, he makes an excellent point about the public education system. I had already begun homeschooling my children because of many of the points that he discusses in his book. Specifically, the system's tendency to cr

It's a masterpiece of saying nothing but sounding very knowledgeable while you do so. From what I can garner (and it's hard because there are few if any facts to go off in the book) he made his money n the real estate boom in the US. But that seems to have convinced him that he had some magic formula to success no one else had thought of. He has done a really good job at selling snake oil through his books though, so I suppose you have to hand him that. Read this if you believe that all it takes ...more

It would be sufficient for people eager to be investors to stop at Rich Dad Poor Dad. I could not finish this book because I felt that I was really just reading the same repetitive opinion -- that creating business systems and focusing on investments were the only wise things to do. There weren't really much practical advice or learning points to be obtained here.

Brilliant. Now is the time to get focused on how to acquire financial intelligence.

This book will help you understand how money works.
Basically we all generate income from one of four quadrants.
“E” employee
“S” self-employed
“B” business owner
“I” investor
Traditional school drives most people to trade time for money on the “E” and “S” quadrants, when in reality true prosperity comes from producing value in the “B” and “I” quadrants.
This is a must read! It contains invaluable information. True principles of prosperity we're talking here. READ IT!

Found this book a bit irritating. Partially that was because it was recommended by a close friend whose judgement I usually trust. He was very excited about it. The more I read the book though the more upset I became. Not because there was nothing of value, but because there was nothing to get excited about. The book has some good points about how you should try to earn money as an investor and how taking additional risk can generate additional income. Unfortunately, he seems to spurn education ...more

This book expands on the concepts presented in Rich Dad Poor Dad. Don't expect a detailed guide to getting rich; Kiyosaki explains that he doesn't write how-to books, but rather provides the mental framework that's necessary for gaining great wealth. He calls it the BE-DO-HAVE approach: "strengthen your thoughts (being) so that you can take the action (doing) that will enable you to become financially free (having)."

Kiyosaki promotes himself as living proof that you can get rich quickly; he went

Refrescante. Lectura obligada para quienes quieren entender como funciona el mundo, para quienes creen en el esfuerzo y quieren trabajar para si mismos en vez de trabajar para otros o para el Estado. Si usted gusta de salir a protestar por más protección del estado, por sus 'derechos' o por la desigualdad entre ricos y pobres, NO LEA ESTE LIBRO, no lo va a entender, o al menos terminará indignado por su contenido. Recomendado sólo para personas de mente abierta. ROMPE TUS PARADIGMAS.

A great follow up to the first Rich Dad book... people earn money on one of 4 ways, or quadrants: 1. being and employee (E) 2. being self employed (S) 3. being a business owner (B) or 4. being an investor (I). This book goes into the advantages and disadvantages of each. It focuses mainly on the B and I quadrants because that is where the tax advantages are, and that is generally where the rich make and KEEP their money.

Recommended by coworker Josh F, this book presents some complex or "hidden" truths that will open your eyes to false conventional financial wisdom. For example, a mortgage isn't an asset but a liability in disguise. Def got me thinking about the importance of upping my financial knowledge as well as challenging my thinking of being an employee vs being a business owner.

"E = Employee, S = Self Employed, B = Business Owner, I = Investor Each quadrant has their own financial perspective. Love this quote “The rich buy assets. The poor only have expenses. The middle class buys liabilities they think are assets. The poor and the middle class work for money. The rich have money work for them. - Robert T. Kiyosaki” #MyFavQuote

I had read Kiyosaki's first book (the origional Rich Dad, Poor Dad) a few years ago back when Nicole & I were trying our hand at the Quixtar / Network marketing 'thing'. I had this book sitting on the shelf for over two years before I decided to pick it up.

As with the previous book, the author outlines types of income sources, types of investing styles (or the lack of them), and why the economic game is stacked against those that work for money, instead of having their money work for them (

This book provided some extra detail on the different types of workers/business people. It was good to see the way that thought can change to enable someone to begin thinking differently about money.
I had a concern after the first book and most of the way through the second on what exactly Mr. Kiyosaki was saying about money. His views are unique (in the current culture). What he finally said about not being greedy but also not being fearful of money help
