Overview


On the heels of his 2010 New York Times bestseller Conspiracy of the Rich, Robert Kiyosaki takes a new and hard-hitting look at the factors that impact people from all walks of life as they struggle to cope with change and challenges that impact their financial world.

In Unfair Advantage &mdash The Power of Financial Education Robert underscores his messages and challenges readers to change their context and act in a new way. Readers are advised to stop blindly accepting that they are ‘disadvantaged’ people with limited options. They are encouraged to act beyond their concept of limited options and challenge the preconception that they will struggle financially all of their lives.

Robert’s fresh approach to his time-tested messages includes clear, actionable steps that any individual or family can take, starting with education. Education becomes applied knowledge, a powerful tactic with measurable results.

In true Rich Dad style, readers will be challenged to understand two points of view, and experience how financial knowledge is their unfair advantage.

Why do the rich get richer even in a financial crisis? In his new book, An Unfair Advantage, Robert confirms his message and challenges readers to change their context and act in a new way. Readers are advised to stop blindly accepting that they are ‘disadvantaged’ people with limited options and challenge the notion that they will struggle, financially, all their lives.

What does school teach you about money? In most cases, the answer is “Not much.” If there is any financial education, the courses are taught by financial planners and bankers… the agents of Wall Street and the big banks, the very people that caused and profited from the financial crisis.

This book is about real financial education. This book is about how debt and taxes make the rich richer &hellip and why debt and taxes makes the poor and middle class struggle.

This book explains why the rich get richer, paying less in taxes, while the middle class shrinks &mdash with many losing jobs, homes, and retirement &mdash and paying more in taxes. This book is about the five unfair advantages a real financial education offers.
The Unfair Advantage of Knowledge
The Unfair Advantage of Taxes
The Unfair Advantage of Debt
The Unfair Advantage of Risk
The Unfair Advantage of Compensation
These five unfair advantages are the outcomes of real financial education.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
It's back to the well for Kiyosaki, author of over a dozen books in the Rich Dad series, whose insights into business have made him extremely wealthy. Kiyosaki argues that saving money is "foolish," and in order to understand this, a financial education (to go along with your academic and professional ones) is necessary. In the course of the book, Kiyosaki reveals how much he likes gold, silver, and real estate, but wisely refuses to recommend them to everyone at all times. Besides savers, he also hates mutual funds and those who get into debt buying non-essentials. Using diagrams, bullet points, and subsections, Kiyosaki certainly makes his complex points more approachable, and dances a fine line between provocative prose and self-promotion. Kiyosaki's overall goal to change the way people think and learn about money is an important one. While he wants people to proactively seek a financial education, he also wants to promote his own brand. (Apr.)

Meet the Author

Robert T. Kiyosaki
Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education.

Good To Know

On his success, Kiyosaki told us, "I've had all six of my books reach the New York Times bestseller list, which is especially rewarding seeing as I flunked out of high school twice because I couldn't write. It just goes to show you that we learn from our mistakes."

In our interview, Kiyosaki said that his time in Vietnam was "a great experience for me.... I learned that to live in fear of dying was not living. I crashed three times in Vietnam -- but my crews always came back alive."

A major rugby fan, Kiyosaki has played all over the world.

According to Kiyosaki, "the power behind Rich Dad is women -- my business partners Kim Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter."

    I've read all the books by Kiyosaki and a large number of financial books written by others because I've noticed that the more I learn the more successful I am. When the market crashed my net worth actually increased significantly because of what I learned from Kiyosaki. Cash flow is king. This book is dead on and is now required reading for those I mentor. My only suggestion is that if you are new to the real world of investing is to be open minded when reading. - M. Cyrid.
