Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Magnate Trump and Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) are the gold standard of the entrepreneurial spirit—self-made, resilient, and charismatic. But they might also just be the saviors of the economy, as they argue in this follow-up to 2006’s We Want You to Be Rich. They claim that our educational system is failing people by training them to be employees, not entrepreneurs: students make good grades by making the fewest mistakes, when they should be learning to take chances and bounce back from their failures. Trump and Kiyosaki’s five-point plan to developing the “Midas Touch”—the necessary skills to become a successful entrepreneur—includes strength of character, focus, the power of a brand, =relationships, and the little things. They tell humanizing stories of both their successes—Kiyosaki getting his start on Oprah—and setbacks, as when he discovered he was unknowingly operating a sweatshop. This galvanizing narrative skews a bit toward mantra-like big ideas rather than executable steps, but is nonetheless an impassioned argument for business self-actualization. (Oct.)

    I've read all the books by Kiyosaki and most by Trump. This book

    I've read all the books by Kiyosaki and most by Trump. This book is mostly a compilation of summaries from their other books probably compiled and managed by Kiyosaki's team based on how it reads. If you've read Trump Never Give Up you will be practically reading the cliff notes of that book in this one. They did at least offer some new material under the brand category. But the most valuable part in my opinion is the section on business partners. Particularly the advice on buy and sell agreements between partners. However this section is just a tiny part. They are afraid to get technical in their books because its over the heads of the majority but its worth dedicating at least one chapter per book to the technical formulas that make all the difference at this point. The book "The Wealthy Code" did it for them.

    Good Read, but not a High Recommendation

    Good book to read, but unfortunately nothing new in this edition. It is a rehash of Trump & Kiyosaki's other books with short bits of information. Unfortunately, while I am a huge Donald Trump fan his books are becoming bland with the same information repeated over and over. Also, if you want a book in a few days to a week, get the express shipping as if you order it by normal delivery it will take "forever" to get to you through the Barnes & Noble website purchasing.
