Along the way he explains the basics of: * How to determine if your idea is a good one * How to write a solid business plan and where to find Othe People's Money to help finance the idea * How to incorporate yourself for business and tax purposes * How to help you find key advisors to help develop your concept * How to best launch your product or service.

More About the Author

Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad - the international runaway bestseller that has held a top spot on the New York Times bestsellers list for over six years - is an investor, entrepreneur and educator whose perspectives on money and investing fly in the face of conventional wisdom. He has, virtually single-handedly, challenged and changed the way tens of millions, around the world, think about money.In communicating his point of view on why 'old' advice - get a good job, save money, get out of debt, invest for the long term, and diversify - is 'bad' (both obsolete and flawed) advice, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage.Rich Dad Poor Dad ranks as the longest-running bestseller on all four of the lists that report to Publisher's Weekly - The New York Times, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today - and was named "USA Today's #1 Money Book" two years in a row. It is the third longest-running 'how-to' best seller of all time.Translated into 51 languages and available in 109 countries, the Rich Dad series has sold over 27 million copies worldwide and has dominated best sellers lists across Asia, Australia, South America, Mexico and Europe. In 2005, Robert was inducted into Amazon.com Hall of Fame as one of that bookseller's Top 25 Authors. There are currently 26 books in the Rich Dad series.In 2006 Robert teamed up with Donald Trump to co-author Why We Want You To Be Rich - Two Men - One Message. It debuted at #1 on The New York Times bestsellers list.Robert writes a bi-weekly column - 'Why the Rich Are Getting Richer' - for Yahoo! Finance and a monthly column titled 'Rich Returns' for Entrepreneur magazine.Prior to writing Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert created the educational board game CASHFLOW 101 to teach individuals the financial and investment strategies that his rich dad spent years teaching him. It was those same strategies that allowed Robert to retire at age 47.Today there are more that 2,100 CASHFLOW Clubs - game groups independent of the Rich Dad Company - in cities throughout the world.Born and raised in Hawaii, Robert Kiyosaki is a fourth-generation Japanese-American. After graduating from college in New York, Robert joined the Marine Corps and served in Vietnam as an officer and helicopter gunship pilot. Following the war, Robert went to work in sales for Xerox Corporation and, in 1977, started a company that brought the first nylon and Velcro 'surfer wallets' to market. He founded an international education company in 1985 that taught business and investing to tens of thousands of students throughout the world. In 1994 Robert sold his business and, through his investments, was able to retire at the age of 47. During his short-lived retirement he wrote Rich Dad Poor Dad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Are you an entrepreneur? 29 Aug 2008
Robert Kiyosaki makes a very persuasive case as to why we should all become entrepreneurs. The book is full of examples, both from Robert's life, the parables from his "Rich Dad", and elsewhere. I really liked the examples and the clarity of the message.

The persuasion however is the real power of the book. If you are considering making a change from employee to entrepreneur then I suggest that you read the book, absorb the messages, take an honest look at yourself and decide whether entrepreneurship or employment is the right choice for you.

The only two downsides are that Robert plays up too much the entrepreneurial side versus employment, I don't think its better it's just a different choice. And a warning for UK english readers the book style is definitely US english!

1.0 out of 5 stars A...book 16 Sep 2010
By mac
The book is great. Very unique approach, friendly style, inspirational I would say. The only downside is that it is based on the American market not so much the UK.

Condition of the book was very very bad. I was actually shocked. I never received a book in such a condition from anybody (amazon, ebay or private sellers) so I have to say I would not recommend this seller and I do not have plans to deal with him/her any more.
The book looks like it was a dog's toy for the last month. very poor!!!

(Love the book, hate the seller)

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it if you are serious about making the change 25 April 2006
By Lin - Published on Amazon.com
I am amazed yet not surprised by the range of reviews. This is absolutely Robert's best book ever. I totally appreciated Sharon's input as she is a straight "A" student like me and I can identify with her intelligence. However I can also identify with Roberts academic weakness because I studied a highlly skilles E/S profession not Business so as far as business is concerned, I'm as dumb as he was in the beginning.

I have read Roberts first 3 books, listened to most of his CD's, Studied his Choose to be rich program and am presently enrolled in Coaching. Every time he starts any teaching he covers the basics so if you never read one of his other books you get an introduction to the concepts. Since the books each build on the other he refers you to the others for further details on some concepts. People like me who are serious about making the transition from employee and self employed to business owner and investor hungrily soak up every word out of Roberts mouth. I noticed that most negative reviewers admit to skimming over the book or just listening to the abridged CD. You missed the meat. I'm sorry for you. It's sad to see someone fight so hard for the right to stay the same.

I too find Robert repetitive at times but I use the opportunity to remind myself of old lessons and prepare myself for the new lesson to come. This new lesson usually stands on the foundation of the previous lesson hence why he must repeat it at least briefly.

On my own personal journey to Business owner and Investor I have found Robert's guidance on changing who you ARE and finding the WHY for your change before working on the HOW-TO PRICELESS!! People who want a GRQ (get rich quick) will never like Robert. They should stop buying his books and go elsewhere.

If you really want to make the change don't just read, STUDY. I don't know if you will ever find this dept of insight into what the change really costs anywhere else. Almost Every other writer wants you to think they are great and that is why they are successful. Robert is brutally honest. This is what we need.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must read! 27 Sep 2005
By Armchair Interviews - Published on Amazon.com
This book is another in the Rich Dad Poor Dad series. In it Kiyosaki explores what it takes to transition from employee to entrepreneur and from entrepreneur to business leader. He identifies and debunks the excuses people give for not acting on their dreams, He also identifies the roadblocks that people put in their own way by not thinking clearly about what it will really take to make an idea a profitable reality.

Among the vital lessons Kiyosaki wants us to learn are:

1. A successful entrepreneur finds the right idea, the right people to act on the idea, and the right money to leverage the whole project.

2. A successful entrepreneur operates from freedom and opportunity rather than security and resources.

3. The best time to answer the tough questions about starting a business -- is before you start the business -- not when you're in the middle of it. Some of these questions are:

a. How badly do I want my own business? Why?

b. How much will I extend myself to succeed?

c. Am I afraid to fail? If so, how can I make this a strength?

d. Am I willing to educate myself on the essential components of a successful business (defining and describing team, leadership, mission and understanding product, legal, systems, communications, and cash flow)?

4. Learn how to turn bad luck into good luck.

The book is filled with easy-to-understand, but sometimes hard-to-apply advice. But hard only in the sense that most of us do not like asking ourselves the hard questions -- and then acting on those answers. However, would-be entrepreneurs can accelerate their success by a thoughtful reading and application of this book and its principles.

Armchair Interviews highly recommends Before You Quit Your Job

3.0 out of 5 stars Another Rehash Robert? 17 Sep 2005
By Emmett C. Dempsey - Published on Amazon.com
I will preface this with the fact that I skimmed through the book when I was at the bookstore. However, I came to the same conclusion that other reviewers have of Kiyosaki's last few books: He just rehashes the tenants of "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" over and over.

I would flip randomly at a page and read a few paragraphs and swear I was reading "Rich Dad, Poor Dad". Things like "Don't Work for Money", "Become and Entrepreneur", etc. And he went into the different types of thinking...i.e. Cash Flow Quadrant rehash.

Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of Kiyosaki and enjoy his message. I even met him in person one time and it was great. But is this what his "business" is? Just reselling millions of Americans on the hope that his books will help them? Other than his book/game empire, what is Kiyosaki's major business?? Anyways, just my two cents.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1 star reviewers should try reading the book first, then write a review. 3 Jan 2006
By Rudy Stephens - Published on Amazon.com
I have to chuckle when I read reviews like the 1 star reviewer who wrote "I bought this book and then I realized it was just like Rich Dad Poor Dad." My question to this 1 star reviewer is, did you really read either this book or Rich Dad Poor Dad or did you just skim over the free stuff here on Amazon.com?

There are some similiarities of course, but the content is different, er, as those of us who actually read the book are aware.

Good love these professional bashers. They aren't doing very well in life but sure make reading the reviews on this board a very funny experience. I had to wait untill I could stop laughing before I could write this. Took me about 15 minutes and I got a real nice belly laugh out of it. So Mr. 1 star, thank you, you made my day! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre book 11 Oct 2005
By Business Book Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well, I've read [or listened to] a lot of the Rich Dad series and this is one that I'm not really impressed with. 75% of the relevant information is simply repeated from earlier books that Robert made. However - it's a good book & would be worth reading for anyone who has entrepreneurial goals. Since it's not great, nor bad, I'll give it 3 stars.
