5.0 out of 5 stars If You Liked Rich Dad, Poor Dad, You Must Read This One!
Repetition is the source of mastery, and The Cash Flow Quadrant takes the excellent thinking in Rich Dad, Poor Dad and builds to another level of detail. This information will increase what you learned in Rich Dad, Poor Dad and help you begin the transformation from a salaried or self-employed person into a business owner and investor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Theory but where was the implementation?
This book started off great. Each chapter explained the Quadrant and which side you needed to be on. Chapter by Chapter he went though the type of people on the left side and the type of people on the right side and then...it got to the end. Where was the `how to' section. If there was one, it was rubbish!

Repetition is the source of mastery, and The Cash Flow Quadrant takes the excellent thinking in Rich Dad, Poor Dad and builds to another level of detail. This information will increase what you learned in Rich Dad, Poor Dad and help you begin the transformation from a salaried or self-employed person into a business owner and investor.
The definitions of these four quadrants are important. As an employee, you have a job. As a self-employed person, you own a job. As a business owner you have a system (such as a franchise like McDonald's) that produces cash flow for you and others work for you. As an investor, your money works for you. Rich people are getting more than 70 percent of their cash flow and income by having money work for them.
One of the strengths of the book is that it deals with the subtle psychological differences among people in the four different quadrants, especially on subjects like security and freedom. Kiyosaki and Lechter then do a nice job of helping you understand the difference between risky and taking risk. The latter is a good idea, when you know what you are doing, and the former is always to be avoided.
The book is not dogmatic, pointing out that good results can be reached in a variety of ways. You have to decide which ones are right for you. In general, you are encouraged to move from the employee and self-employed side for your income to the business owner and investor side. Then, take your cash flow and expand it into investments.
Another of the strengths of the book is to make it clearer what the advantages of income property are. In these Internet stock-crazed days, many are looking only to stocks and missing good commercial property opportunities.
There are lots of good questions you can use to help frame your road through the cash flow quadant. At a minimum, you will become much more financially literate. With the help of the 7 steps here for making the necessary changes, you should begin to make the transition.
The book has a nice conversational tone that turns personal economics into common sense examples and principles.
The downside of any book about changing your life is that you can read it much faster than you can master the lessons and apply them. I suggest that you schedule time to reread this book over the next 10 years. That's the best way to check up on yourself and how you are doing.
I do recommend that you read Rich Dad, Poor Dad first. You'll get much more out of this book if you do that. Then you'll begin to see opportunities where others see difficulties. Good luck with fulfilling your goals!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want more money, read this book, 27 Feb 2001
By 
A fine book that changes the way you think about money. The text can get a little repetetive at times, but don't let that put you off. There's a lot more meat in this book than in his previous offerring, 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A glum yet inspiring read., 18 Dec 2006

Having enjoyed Rich Dad, Poor Dad in a depressing yet inspiring way, I was anxious to read this book. I was not disappointed, although finished feeling glum yet inspired. It is a strange combination. I suppose it arises from reading about the fate of the employed and self-employed as opposed to the opportunities that beckon those who aspire to run a business or invest.

However, there are seven steps outlined to help the would-be wealthy. These are most interesting and practical. By the end of the book I started to feel a lot better, because as a result of his first book I had already made some progress. Worth reading, but be prepared for some glumness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get out of the Rat Race and change your life in the process., 20 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This is no 'get rich quick manual', and is all the better for it - but it will shift the paradigms of what has become, for most of us, the conventional view of work and money. Written in a similar style to the 'one minute manager' series of books is perhaps the only downside of this wonderful volume. The message is essentially simple and illustrated well by examples and diagrams. If you want to become finacially free and actually have your money work for YOU and not the bank, mortgage lender, or tax-man then invest in buying the book and the time to read it. Then begin the journey to financial freedom. The important points are periodically repeated so as to re-affirm the knowledge, which I think is good for any reader at any level. There are 'get out clauses' that allow the reader to finish the book early if they don't think the philosophy will suit them and so not waste their time. I challenge any one to put the book the book down before the last page!

4.0 out of 5 stars Too much going over old ground, 1 Aug 2004

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you like me have read the first book you might become irritated as I did with the repetition in this sequel. Consequently the reading experience wasn't as enjoyable as Rich Dad Poor Dad 1.
There is however some useful information and new concepts in the second book so on balance it's still worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Read for anyone who wants success!, 11 Dec 2005

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was eye opening to say the least. The book teaches you to be open-minded about life's opportunities and possibilities. We all need self education regarding financial matters and unfortunately it is not something we are taught at school. It was a fantastic read and anyone out there who is hungry for better life should read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars a joy!, 23 Jun 2007
What an insightful book. Robert's intellect is second to none. The message is a pragmatic, realistic one just on how easy it is to become wealthy - if you can handle it! Most people in our culture are conditioned with the 'wage slave' mentality. It's just a fact of life. How liberating to realise that you don't have to remain one of them! The only people who won't like this book's message are, frankly, those who are just too afraid to take the risks and changes of attitude necessary to 'cross over' to the side of the 'boss'. It's all in the book! It's 'easy', but takes courage to cross that bridge to freedom. I found the book a real joy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Successor to the Throne, 5 Dec 2006
By 
Mr. K. R. Davison "bucktrust" (Leeds, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Yet another great book and staple read in the 'Rich Dad' series, the second book is using the same concepts as the first, but elaborating on the theme and introduces the quadrant. Not quite as ground-breaking as the first, but has some useful ideas to allow the reader to apply to their lifes and use as a foundation for decision making in the future. Yet again further evidence is used to reinforce, why you will never become rich, working as an employee. Even though there has been much more widespread adoption of these thoughts due to this series, if you are relatively new to these ideas, this is a must read, thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars Get an "MBA" Money, Business and Accounting that is ., 23 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Robert is a great teacher who combined his poor dads teaching skills and rich dads financial inteligence and put all that on paper for anyone to read and learn from . The book starts with a great story of two gentelman who won the bid to supply water to thier village. One of them went to work immediately. He bought two buckets and began hauling buckets from the river from dawn to dusk. Meanwhile the other genteleman set up a corporation,found investors,and returned with a construction crew. Within a year he had a pipeline up and running which connected the village to the river.He could now supply his clients with cleaner water 24 hours a day 7 days a week at a 75% reduction in price.This is a very nice story that lets you ponder "am I building a pipeline or hauling buckets?" " am I working hard or working smart?". so read the book and raise your financial I.Q. and you're on your way to financial freedom. His board game "cashflow 101/202" I also recommend highly it will blow your mind and awaken your financial genius... they include tape packs that are worth thier whight in gold ! Robert created an awesome teaching system that will teach you to have cashflow come your way like he has taught so many others.
