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 ..

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.)

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 only successful venture is the Rich Dad franchise).

Conclusion: Skip it.

اسمحوا لي أن أكتب هنا تعليقي بسرد ما كتبته على صفحتي كاملًا:
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)
الكتابان مترجمان إلى العربية، وقد قرأت الثاني بالإنجليزية فكانت لغة الكاتب سهلة سلسة، مباشرة وواضحة.

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 .....

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.

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.


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

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

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!

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

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

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.

Įdomu buvo skaityti ir susipažinti su autoriaus požiūriu į finansus, pinigus ir darbą. Galbūt ne su visom idėjom norisi sutikti. Visgi, sakyčiau, knygoje dėstomos mintys praplėtė akiratį bei leido geriau suvokti ir pažinti save - pats kvadrantas, suskirstantis pinigų gavimo būdus, žinios apie investuotojų lygius ir tipus, pasidalinimas savo ir aplinkinių patirtimi.

An extension of the Rich Dad Poor Dad series. The author had introduced the Cashflow quadrant in his first book and has attempt a detailed version about it but seems to have failed in doing that.

The cashflow quadrant identifies the different means of making a living - Employee (E), Self-Employed (S), Business Owner (B) and Investor (I). The idea is to move from active income i.e. E or S to B or I. An Investor makes minimal effort to earn money and let's his capital does the job. This should be

The much maligned Robert Kiyosaki is here to open your eyes to the new age of finance. The age in which great sums of money are needed just to survive into retirement. Do you realize that if you're in your 20's now you'll need approximately $2.5 million to retire on? Just look at how quickly those gas prices are going up and imagine the cost of living 45 years from now.

Kiyosaki believes that the government and business are conspiring to keep the general public down by advocating education as th

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.

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.

"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
كتاب اكثر من رائع وهو تقريبا تتمة لكتاب (الاب الغني الاب الفقير) ويعرض فيه المؤلف لاربعة انماط تشمل اساليب تعامل الناس مع المال من وجهة نظره ، وهو بالطبع ينادي بنهج معين في التعامل مع المال شرحه بشكل كبير في هذا الكتاب
