I've read several of Robert's books before and I am a fan of the Rich Dad philosophy; I've found previous books inspiring and educational and have created an asset column as a result of them. Not so this one.

Firstly, if you aren't a US citizen then avoid this book altogether because much of it is spent talking about the 401(k), not paying tax on real estate investments, and other US tax loopholes. For a UK reader, there is nothing to be gained from this at all.

Most disappointing though is the way in which Robert sneers at anyone who hasn't done what he has. He laughs at the poor, he looks down at the middle class and he pities those who work or are self employed. Much of the books is spent gloating about his 300 condo deal, or his golf course. It reads not as someone trying to educate, but as a self-congratulatory boast. Any traces of humility from previous books has disappeared and it really is a horrible and uncomfortable read from that perspective.

In terms of ideas, there isn't anything new that Rich Dad readers won't have gleaned from previous books. The content is all in the title - if you want an unfair advantage then get some financial education; that's it. The book doesn't give you financial education,just reiterates that you need it.

Overall, a disappointing waste of money.

I've read several of Robert Kiyosaki's books and this one is a clear summary with more detail of all the rest. I'm completely sold on the message, when I first read Rich Dad Poor Dad 10 years ago, it was like he was articulating what I already believed about money and financial freedom.

However, even though the message is spot on, and it really gets across the mindset that people need to become financially free, one issue I have with this book and all his others is the way its written. I would hate to be one of Robert's friends or family, as the way he refers to them sometimes is like they're dumbasses who failed where he succeeded. He talks very arrogantly about how himself and all the rich are so much smarter than all the "monkeys" out there, how it makes him "sick" when people ask him to lunch to "pick his brains" and keeps highlighting it not cool to brag, but writes in a way which does come across like that.

Also, he tries to paint a picture of himself as altruistic, he invests in oil but because he cares about the environment he takes some of those profits and invests in green energy, how much we don't know, but somehow he tries to justify that he's doing it for the good of the planet and not to make lots of money. A lot of the altruistic points he weaves into the book seem a little half hearted, and more for PR, when he spends so much time in the book talking about how much money he plans to make (and I remember in his last book I read he set the goal of becoming a billionaire before he died) - what's more important? Being a billionaire or making the world a better place?

I bought this book thinking I would learn something new. This book is a lot of copy and paste of other Rich Dad Material. If you have read other Rich Dad books then you will find it is like reading the same stuff over and over again. I gave 1 star because I really think Robert can do a better job than this. I have bought all his books and this one is like little clips of all the other books.
I hope Robert can make a new book with some new ideas and thoughts. Listening to the same old over and over again is not fun.

Having read a lot of Robert Kiyosaki's books, I have to say this is one of his best! People who have read his books will find more of the same but this time with more detail that has been so sadly lacking in previous books. Put together in an easy to follow format this book removes a lot of the anecdotes from previous books and gives you the information straight up. Don't get me wrong Robert still frames things with references to his past and in gaining his own financial education - but there is much less of it and this book is to the point. A must buy for Rich Dad fans!

Thank you Robert for your unselfish giving of information. I think your message is very clear and inspiring to ' Get on with educating yourself' in finance, so you can give more to the world.
I have a direction now and an aim rather than feeling rudderless.
I come from a very educated family and have reached the pinnacle , but found myself asking 'is that it?'.
Now that answer is not yes...I always knew there was a part of the jigsaw missing....this is it!
I would thoroughly recommend this book and Robert's advice. Thank you once again.

Disappointed with this one, i like Robert Kiyosaki, Rich dad poor dad 1 & 2 were good, he's not a skilled writer but makes some good points, observations and teaches some good skills, the cashflow 101 webgame is really good and i still play it from time to time, Unfair advantage really is just repetitive and explains what an unfair advantage is in several situations? its not really much help especially if you've read his other titles and visited his websites, come on Robert you should be getting better not worse
