Overview


Kiyosaki expands on his belief that the school system was created to churn out 'Es' / Employees... those "A Students" who read well, memorize well and test well... and not the creative thinkers, visionaries and dreamers –entrepreneurs-in-the-making... those "C Students who grow up to be the innovators and creators of new ideas, businesses, applications and products.

The book urges parents not to be obsessed with their kids' "letter grades" ("good grades" might only mean they or the student themselves were successful in jamming a square peg into a round hole...) and focus, instead, on concepts, ideas, and helping their child find their true genius, their special gift. The path they can pursue with a love and true passion.

Robert showcases success stories of "C Students" who grew up to be phenomenal successes – and HIRED those "A Students"(attorneys, accountants, and other school-smart specialists) to work in their businesses... while the more average students, "B Students," often find themselves in government-type jobs...

Not surprisingly, Kiyosaki will coin his own definitions of what "A," "B," and "C" stand for as he gives parents and their children bits of wisdom as well as insights and tools for navigating an ever-changing world... an Information Age world where the ability to change and adapt, understand relationships, and anticipate the future will shape their lives.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Fans of Kiyosaki, author of the world-famous "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" will appreciate this book for many of the same reasons that the original book was an immediate hit. Kiyosaki's credentials are impressive and he employs anecdotes culled primarily from his life (and his dad's). The four-section book begins with the basics in Financial Education and ends with "Graduate School for Capitalists". He quotes liberally from many different financial resources and experts, and includes helpful graphics like "Rich Dad Lessons" and flip charts to illustrate important points. He also identifies three distinct "windows of learning" age groups, beginning with "birth to 12" and ending with 24-36, and includes simple, easy-to-follow "Action Steps for Parents" throughout the book to help insure that parents reinforce key lessons. Kiyosaki's lessons are captivating because they are often counter-intuitive to what most people learn in school—e.g., "savers are losers" or "debt is bad"—and his enthusiasm for capitalism is so contagious that parents who want to give a lasting gift to their children will want to grab this book.

Meet the Author

Robert T. Kiyosaki

Robert T. Kiyosaki, best known as the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad — the #1 personal finance book of all time — Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. He is an entrepreneur, educator and investor who believes the world needs more entrepreneurs. With perspectives on money and investing that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage.

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 do recommend this book

    Robert Kiyosaki has put it all together as to what is going on in our world today. This includes financial literacy as well as how our educational system is not working and other very important information about those who are in control of what is happening in our world today. If you read it you may have an education that you did not expect.

    You will find that "C" student may not just be connected to a grade.
