This book is good for encouragement to build your own wealth and does have some good tips, but if you're after specifics about property, buy a book that covers the practical side of it such as tax laws, etc.
Hope that's useful!
Ive read a few of kiyosaki's books and found while their principles are good, they do repeat themselves a lot, so with trump co authoring this book i thought it had some potential.
At first there were some interesting points in this book - the best bits for me were reading about why the authors thought the outlook for the American economy was bleak - a growing trade defecit, a growing national debt, a falling dollar value etc. The other chapter that i found useful prompted the question on how the reader invests their time and money.
Apart from these two chapters in the book, i found little else of value which i had not been exposed to from reading other Kiyosaki books. The book got worse as i progressed through it. Chapters such as "how did military school help define your life?" and another - "what was the defining lesson you learned from sports?" were a waste of time and soon i found myself skim reading the book in an attempt to finish it.
What really made me want to put this book down for good, (apart from the plugging of other rich dad / trump products) was the constant, and overly excessive praise that kiyosaki spews in his writings about trump. One line towards the end of the book (p325) reads "Just being in his (trumps) presence has been a lesson on how i want to live my life".
There are far better books which are much more inspiring and informative and, as a result I would not recommend you read this book.
The book however is of very low quality in terms of information and points of view. Fair enough, they give a few good pointers but all in all I had the feeling, throughout the entire book, that it was written clearly for profit making. Using Donald Trump's name on the cover sure does make someone to buy it, but in the end it is just Kiyosaki telling a story of his life and Donald Trump just agrees on everything.
