Together, then apart, then together again, as a brother and a sister discover the riches of life. Rich Brother Rich Sister combines the inspirational, true life stories of Robert Kiyosaki and his sister Emi Kiyosaki (Venerable Tenzin Kacho) into a book that will reaffirm your belief in the power of purpose, the importance of action, and the ability to overcome obstacles in a quest for a rich financial and spiritual life.
In 1962, the United States detonated an atomic bomb ten miles off the coast of Christmas Island in the South Pacific. From that moment, two people, born of the same parents into the same household with the same childhood experiences, found themselves on distinctly different paths toward God, money, and happiness. Robert became a world-famous entrepreneur, author, and teacher of all things financial. Emi became a highly devout Buddhist nun, author, and teacher of all things spiritual.
This book will inspire you along your own life’s journey as you search for your own truths, purpose, and path to wealth—both financial and spiritual—to achieve all the riches of life that were meant for you...and us all.

This book, a kind of dual memoir, is exceedingly hard to assess. It tells the parallel and strongly contrasted stories of Robert Kiyosaki, well known, if rather controversially so, as the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, and his sister Emi Kiyosaki (the Venerable Tenzin Kacho), who enjoys an eminence of her own as a Buddhist nun. What unites them, according to Emi, is "the search for meaning, belonging, success, and understanding," but what remains with the reader is the powerful contrast in their approaches to life-the humble nun and the entrepreneurial pal of Donald Trump.

Meet the Author
Robert Kiyosaki is a fourth-generation Japanese American, born and raised in Hawaii. After graduating from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in New York, Robert joined the Marine Corps and served in Vietnam as an officer and helicopter gunship pilot. Following the war, Robert went to work in sales for the Xerox Corporation and, in 1977, started a company that brought the first nylon and Velcro “surfer” wallets to market. He founded an international education company in 1985 that taught business and investing to tens of thousands of students throughout the world. In 1994 Robert sold his business and, through his investments, was able to retire at the age of forty-seven. During his short-lived retirement, he wrote the international bestselling book Rich Dad Poor Dad, and in 2006 coauthored with Donald Trump Why We Want You To Be Rich. An entrepreneur, teacher, and investor, Robert also writes a monthly column, “Why the Rich Are Getting Richer,” for Yahoo! Finance, and a monthly column, “Rich Returns,” for Entrepreneur magazine.
Barbara Emi Kiyosaki grew up in Hawaii with Robert and the Kiyosaki family. While Robert took the path of war during the Vietnam era, Emi took the path of peace, exploring alternative and spiritual journeys. Emi began her studies at the University of Hawaii and then traveled to Colorado, Alaska, and India to deepen her studies and practice of Buddhism. Emi was ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 1985 and today is known by her ordination name, Bhikshuni Tenzin Kacho. For six years, Tenzin was the Buddhist chaplain at the United States Air Force Academy. She has a master of arts degree in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan Language from Naropa University. She is the assistant spiritual director and teacher at Thubten Dhargye Ling Buddhist Center in Long Beach, California, and is a visiting teacher at Thubten Shedrup Ling in Colorado Springs. She occasionally resides at Geden Choling Nunnery in northern India. Tenzin also works as a hospice chaplain in Los Angeles, California.
