Book Description

7 Aug 2006 0743277252 978-0743277259
Popular speaker, multimillionaire, and author of the all-time bestselling real-estate book Nothing Down, Robert G. Allen knows how to bring you financial success. With his seminars sweeping the nation, Allen is at the cutting edge of strategic wealth creation now more than ever. And in this completely revised edition of his classic bestseller Creating Wealth Allen gives you the basic principles that you need to stop thinking poor and start growing rich.

Moving beyond just real estate, Allen goes straight to the core of people's inner motivations and beliefs about money to give you all the fundamentals of wealth creation. By developing a wealthy mind-set, anyone can take off into financial self-reliance -- and Allen shows you how. He explains the ways in which most of us have been programmed to think that only saving is good and debt and risk are bad, so that in our efforts to gain security, we cheat ourselves out of getting rich. The key to changing that mind-set is Allen's unique integration of real estate with other wealth-generating investments.

In his trademark, easy-to-understand style Allen spells out all his practical applications and shows you how to:

  • Take advantage of recent tax laws
  • Use leverage to multiply holdings while minimizing risks
  • Benefit from high-yield discount mortgages
  • Acquire long-term profits in gold and silver coins
  • Set up corporations and trusts to protect assets
  • Find the highest rate of return with the greatest liquidity

As Robert Allen has proved in his own life -- becoming a multimillionaire well before he was thirty-five -- it doesn't matter how much or how little money you have when you start as long as you understand the right principles -- timeless principles that can make you a fortune.

He followed that success with Creating Wealth, with well over three quarters of a million copies in print. His other major bestsellers include Multiple Streams of Income and The One-Minute Millionaire. For over twenty years, Robert Allen has been successfully sharing his wealth-building techniques in popular seminars throughout the fifty states and Canada. A popular television and radio guest, he has appeared on hundreds of programs, including Good Morning America and Larry King Live. He has also been featured in such national publications as The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Barron's, Money magazine, and Reader's Digest.

4.0 out of 5 stars First, change the way you think 15 Nov 2009
Once we enter school, we are programmed to get educated so that we can get a good job, because this will bring us security and happiness. Nothing can be further from the truth. Our salary is our employer's expense, and they will always try to pay us as little as possible to control their own costs. Just like we would not overpay for a haircut or dinner at our favorite restaurant, our employers are unlikely pay us more than they absolutely have to.

This is a great book for people who want to step out of their comfort zone and question the status quo. In order to become wealthy, we first have stop thinking like the average person does. The author lists nine false assumptions:

* False Assumption 1: Having a Job Is Good and Leads Ultimately to Wealth
* False Assumption 2: Saving Your Money is a Good Investment
* False Assumption 3: Debt is Bad - Avoid It Like the Plague
* False Assumption 4: Security is Good
* False Assumption 5: Failure is Bad
* False Assumption 6: Wealth Is Measured in Material Possessions
* False Assumption 7: The Government, My Employer, or Someone Else Is Responsible for My Financial Well-Being
* False Assumption 8: Acquiring Wealth Is A Win-Lose Game
* False Assumption 9: It Takes Money to Make Money

Mr Allen teaches and motivates the novice investor on how to use real estate as a tool for creating financial wealth. Locating motivated sellers and creating win/win solutions allows investors to use cookie-cutter techniques in any part of the United States. Even though it was wriiten in the early 80's, the principles still hold true. I look forward to reading his other works in the future. Troy Preston

After having personally read over thirty books on the subject of real estate investment, I've found Robert Allen's book stands out from the rest. It is one of only a few books avialable today that actually teaches a step-by-step approach to investing. It leaves the general theories to the other authors and instead, gets down to the nitty-gritty of starting down the path to financial independence. The author doesn't self-promote his own elaborate collection of materials and seminars as so many others do, which I greatly appreciate.
As someone who is just starting to look into this fascinating subject, I can confidently tell you; don't waste your time elsewhere, buy this book, you won't be dissapointed.
