This book is full of information and gives the reader an understanding of the process of investing in Real Estate. This is part of the Rich Dad, Poor Dad series, and Mr. Kiyosaki doesn't fail us. Kiyosaki brings together some of the brightest minds in their various fields. Each chapter is filled to the brim of information and is easily understandable. The most important point made throughout the entire book is how important it is to have a great team. I highly recommend this book.

Easily the best Kiyosaki book.

Good overview. Kinda covers everything so it doesn't really cover anything very well. It's my first real estate book but I would recommend for a beginning reference book.

Highly recommend!

Note to myself: Never make any deals with anyone you do not trust. Don't make the mistake of putting your real estate rentals into an S corp. or C corp. Hire REAL ESTATE ATTORNEY, not just ATTORNEY. Make the deal - no matter how long it takes (at the meeting). Having a general contractor run the show is a good idea. You should never attempt to manage your own construction, no matter how well you think you can do it. If you are an investor, remain an investor. Ask, even if you th

Shelves: real-estate
This book is very general, but gives insight to many different types of real estate deals. Almost every contributor mentions the importance of building a great team and outsourcing most of the responsibility. While the stories were interesting and it was filled with lots of useful tidbits, the book is more of a motivational item than a manual for investing. In the final chapter Robert was subtly trying to sell his courses and other books of his.

Useful tidbits:
Stay local, and actively navigate th

I picked this up as I started re-reading Kiyosaki's other books and realized just how prolific an author he has become! While I enjoy the rest of his work, I think this is probably the best and most helpful book he has out, simply because of the vast array of perspectives it includes. Some of the essays dealt with a range I wasn't really interested in - but I read them and generally found something that related to the aspect of real estate investing that I *am* interested in pursuing. At the sam ...more

This book gives a great overview of the advantages of investing in real estate, along with the many different types of real estate investments that are out there! Really good for people just starting out to see what's out there and what is most interesting to them. I really liked the chapters on single family homes, tax liens, and exchanges. Very informative book!

Shelves: money
I really like Kiyosaki's take on money and I think he's a lot more readable than most personal finance authors. But this book was a collection of essays by other people, and the point was pretty much just to build his brand and keep something new on the shelves. It didn't really add much to my understanding of investing.

This is an awesome book. I loved hearing from all the different people and their personal experiences and expertise. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to be a real estate investor. Robert has changed the way I think about money and work.

Clarifies some of the more esoteric rules regarding real estate. Although the author's personal life is constantly called into question(bankruptcy, "scam artist!accusations"), it definitely does make you think different about the financial system that we are born into.

This is not a book, it is merely a compilation of self-promotion articles of the author's buddies.

Great book. It might be a little too deep for beginners, however there is still a lot that can be learned.

One of the best books around on being successful. I would not have been able to grow a million dollar business without Robert.
