I liked it!

Another good piece from the Kiyosaki line of work. An expert in the line of business legalities does the teaching here. When I paid great attention, this book flowed easily. But when I dipped off for a brief moment, I was quickly blanketed by the sometimes dense material.

A good ease-in to a very detailed subject.

This was probably one of my least favorite Rich Dad series books. Although the format of the book is very similar to the other 'rich dad' books it wasn't as enjoyable to read. Maybe if you are an attorney you'd enjoy it more.

Learn how the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. This book gives you the secrets to how those in the know lower their taxable income doing the same things that others have to pay out of pocket to do.

Fantastic book with great examples. I'd recommend this book for anyone thinking of starting a company or that is new to owning a company.

Great book to understand and grasp the types of entities available and defining its characteristics. It’s not a how to step by step guide to incorporate a business. However, it gives ample information to guide you to the entity that is most favorable to your needs. I would highly recommend that you get a more recent copy—if available—when you’re close to open or incorporate your own business.

This seemed similar to Running Your Own Corporation, but it still served as a good refresher.

This book is not for everyone, why you ask !
This is not an inspiring novel, on how to get rich, as the name depicts "Rich dad advisory" is here to advise you to make up your mind if you're going to start your own company.

Mostly helpful for the people live in America.
Others can just make notes on how different companies work if you don't already know.

As a finance student or if you're planing for a start-up, this might help you knowing the ins and outs of a going concern.

Not bad book to get you start thinking about the importance of protecting yourself via corporations for personal protection as well as better tax planning - obviously this is out of date or one must remain updated about the latest laws governing your specific country or state - but good as an intro in my opinion to get you thinking the right way about this

To Our Continued Success!

This book is great to enhance your knowledge for better financial protection and understanding. But if you aren't an US citizen you will not find it interesting as it only talks about the American financial laws and regulations and it would be bit tough to correlate its application with your country.

Not exactly brilliant prose, but very simple explanation of corporations, the benefits, etc. It would be better if there were a few more clear next steps on how to begin the process, but there are other books for that.

For me, this was a very useful introduction of S-corporations, C-corporations, LLC's, and LP's and the pros and cons of each. The author used case studies to illustrate the technical jargon, which made it very helpful for me to understand.

This is a good book explaining what can be a very technical area in a simple and easy to understand way. It is written for the US market, so chunks of it are irrelevant to the UK reader, but it's still useful. I'm a chartered accountant and I still picked up handy tips from it.

Good read, but really didn't say much that you didn't learn in Rich Dad/ Poor Dad -- or you couldn't pick up from talking to your CPA.

I'm sure it's a great book for Americans but I live in Canada so things are a bit different here

This one has a good chapter that's an example of how owing your own corporation can provide legal tax relief.

Recommends it for: property investment.
It is always a good idea to separate your assets from yourself in case of a lawsuit! They can't touch your other assets if they sue you over that property that is inside a good ol LLC.
