Diamond Dan - a result of these types of books

This book is an amazing source of wealth building knowledge. I have read hundreds of self help books including all of the books by Kiyosaki. There is no one book that can teach you every thing you need, too bad. But to those who have an eager passion to build wealth this book can help. The thing that cracks me up is that people think they can just read a book like this and wake up the next day wealthy. It takes months and years of APPLYING the little tidbits of knowledge and experience and attitude found in these types of books. And I know because I did it and continue to better myself still, by reading these types of books!

Should change title 'How We Want to Take Your Money'

Thought after reading the original Rich Dad Poor Dad this may be a great read esp. with Trump. The two men only write praising each other for their accomplishments, or pitch the Rich Dad series, or Trump Tower this or that, Apprentice. There is actually a pyramid chart saying reading is the worst possible way to learn, only retaining 10%.duh, then why write a book? MONEY. They go on an on about how they love to teach and it's not about money...oh yeah. Another chapter, 'I am a mid-aged man and want something new' Richard says go to the golf course and volunteer. Thanks that will make a man's bills go away. STAY AWAY FROM THIS BOOK

    I want my money back!

    this book was so sad. It taught me nothing. I thought I was going to learn how to invest in real estate, but not even close. This is a trick! I took Mr. Mundy's advice and bought 'The TAkeover: EVerything You Need To Know About Business' by LaFoy Thomas and it was great. I now know how to invest in stocks and real estate, but trump and robert did not help me get there.

    Well written.

    This book is amazingly well written and extremely motivational. Although this book does not tell you the steps to take on how to become rich, it helps you to get into the mindset of being rich. Awesome book that i would recommend to anyone. Truly inspiring!

    Don't Waste Your Money

    I would not recommend this book. It's all about the author's praising each other. (I do agree with the 'entitlement mentality' issue, but that's about it.) I doubt Trump wrote any part of it. Only reason the book sold is because Trump lent his name to it. They do concentrate on selling you on their investment training progrmas and books, but this book does little to tell you anything other than what the title says: Why We Want You to Be Rich. Believe the title. The issue is who cares? Low on hints, high on self praise.

    Superbly written, inspiring

    Thought this was inspiring about the different habits and success stories...you get to see the different parallels between both of them. The reason why I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is because I did come out inspired after reading the book but I didn't come out with actionable items. What should I invest in to start growing my networth? Where can I apply these lessons? Thankfully I did buy other books to help answer those questions.
