Overview

Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki are both concerned. Their concern is that the rich are getting richer but America is getting poorer. Like the polar ice caps, the middle class is disappearing. America is becoming a two-class society.

Soon you will be either rich or poor. Donald and Robert want you to be rich.

The world is facing many challenges and one of them is financial. The entitlement mentality is epidemic, creating people who expect their countries, employers, or families to take care of them. Trump and Kiyosaki, both successful businessmen, are natural teachers who share a passion for education. They have joined forces to address these challenges, because they believe you cannot solve money problems with money. You can only solve money problems with financial education. Trump and Kiyosaki want to teach you to be rich. Why We Want You To Be Rich was written for you.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Rich Dad, Poor Dad author and motivational speaker Robert T. Kiyosaki and celebrity rich man Donald J. Trump join forces to come to the aid of America's shrinking middle class. These thriving multimillionaires give advice designed to help average readers expand their wealth in the harsh economy. Firm steps towards financial literacy.
Publishers Weekly
The wildly financially successful authors of this book state, early on, that a reader will not find in its pages specific advice on how to make or invest money. It's more a book of philosophy (note the "why" in the title), and if it's not exactly Kierkegaardian in scope or language, this collaboration of real estate magnate and rags-to-riches financial guru manages to entertain and to inform. Written in bite-size chunks and adorned with quotes (some from the authors' previous works or speeches) and graphs, it explains why some people get rich and others... well, don't. Some tales are shopworn: the many references to Warren Buffett are tales well told, for example, but what works best are the aphorisms and the personality type descriptions within the "CASHFLOW Quadrant" no matter what you do for a living, in your heart are you an E, an S, a B or an I? (Key: E=employee; B=big business owner; S=self-employed, specialist or small business owner; I=investor.) But Trump and Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) together are a strangely winning combination (they've published this book jointly and privately and a portion of its profits will be donated to charity). Bottom line: these Messrs. Money-bags know their business. We're talking billionaires here, and really, how can you argue with success? (Oct.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    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

    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!

    Great book for the money.

    I haven't finished reading the book yet. So far, I am impressed. I have other books from both authors. In today's economy, this book is perfect in helping you obtain your goals to financial freedom.

    You Need To Read This Book!

    I picked this book up because I respect Mr. Kiyosaki and Mr. Trump. BUT I HAD NO IDEA OF HOW GREAT THIS BOOK WAS! It was a page turner. It's NOT a book on investing or what to do...but an educational book. You'll find out why America is in the pickle it is. These two gentlemen really, really want us to be successful. This book has inspired me and it will inspire you. http://www.bettercreditwithski.com/

    Written in 2006 -prophetic and still relevant

    These two guys lay out financial advice from which anyone, novice or savvy investor, can learn and it helps reinforce basic supply and demand principles. It warns heavily about the volatility of the stock market, money market, gold, etc., and that the only way to really make money is through oil and gas exploration and additionally real estate in North America. Even if we lessen our dependence on foreign oil, there will still be a need world wide for many years to come. It is emphatic about taking charge of your own financial picture and ending the reliance on your company 401 plan, social security, pensions, and the stock market to ensure financial security. All of those plans are in jeopardy and can't be counted on for retirement or to last indefinitely. This is a wonderful read to make you think twice about conventional "safe" investing and says a lot about these two icons who want to share their insight to ensure that our country stays strong, inovative, and independent from foreign control. I highly recommend this book.

    Get in the Game!

    Why we want you to be rich¿.is a blue print that gives people the inside scoop of what they need to do to be a step ahead of the game and the changes in the market place. If you don¿t want to be left behind and feeling sorry for yourself read this book to understand why Donald and Robert want you to be rich. Stop talking¿¿ Think big and take action!

    A reviewer

    The authors spend half of the book flattering each other. There is no doubt that both of these are very accomplished men, but Kiyosaki's message is a basic review of his previous books. Albeit I was personally inspired by the book, it is not quite what one would expect from two great business minds. It is mostly a telling of personal anecdotes, and little personal tips. If you are looking for a book jam-packed with business info, this is not for you.

    how to get rich

    Dear Readers, While i have still to get hold of the title -why we want you to be rich....i had the priviledge of reading 'HOW TO GET RICH'. Believe me, i have read many inspirational best sellers in my life but the most which brought me financial success are :- 1' HOW TO GET RICH -DONALD TRUMP& 2'THINK & GROW RICH -NAPOLEON HILL. After reading Donald's book-i ended up buying 2 apartments ,albeit through a loan..however the capital appreciation far superseded the loan factor many times over. Dear Donald trump & napoleon hill-thank you both. best regards/prasad lbv

    Exactly What I Was Looking For.

    First off I want to say that this is the first work by Donald Trump that I've read and I was very pleasantly surprised. I have a whole new respect for him now. I was very happy with the way the book was laid out and the 'Roberts view', 'Donalds view' format. I wasn't looking for step-by-step instructions. I was seeking millionare advice on becoming wealthy and that is exactly what I received.

    Don't Waste Your Time

    The authors have one thing in common - self-aggrandizement! The book is a published commercial for their other books, games, accesories. The writing style is demeaning to the reader's intelligence. I cannot believe the book made it to the number one slot on Business Week's best seller list. The only thing this book is good for is fire kindling.

    The Big Picture

    To succeed you must see the big picture. If you are looking for a detail plan to get ahead this is no the book for you but if you are looking to see the big picture that will really help you succeed in life by changing the way you see things and what is coming ahead, then this is the book for you.

    Pretty Good!

    I like this book as a starter book. It is sure to motivate anyone with a desire to get rich, and will get you on the right track. In order for this book to work, you read 'The Takeover: Everything You Need to Know About Business' by LaFoy Thomas to go with it. These two books together will teach you everything You Need to know.

    Not Step by Step

    This book is not a step by step book on how to get rich. If anyone tries to sell you a step to step book then they are getting over on you. There is no step to step book to getting rich. This book gives you views on life and business from two people that are rich. its a good book I recommened it but don't look for answer to get rich.

    Teach me to fish - don't sell me fish

    'With this new book, the age-old saying of: 'Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime,' is explored as Trump and Kiyosaki teach you what they believe you need to know to be rich.'' The entire book is ... in my other book blah blah blah ... I say to do this. Then once RK is done, DJT writes ... yeah just like what he said. This book is entirely over hyped and I feel, terribly written. I found it a struggle to finish.

    Are these guys for real?

    What a joke!! I'm 3/4 of the way through this heap of garbage and the only things I've learned is that these two lovebirds make each other feel great. I honestly dont know what this book is about. The first 100+ pages of the 300+ pg book are about exactly how they went about discussing what to write about in the book. Is it me or is this completely insane? Incorporated into the numerous pats on the back and self-marketing ploys for their other products is a few tidbits on how the middle class is shrinking and America is going down the tubes. This message is repeated page after page, mainly by changing paragraphs around, just as we all did back in high school when we waited too long to begin a term paper and needed to meet the page requirement. Unless there is a legitmate map to Blackbeards gold at the end of this book, I WANT MY MONEY BACK! Damn it Donald! Right when I thought you were hilarious and great for your tirade against Rosie, you go and screw it up with this ridiculous non-sense. And Robert Kiyosaki is even worse. He bows down and kisses The Donald's feet for an entire chapter. Robert, hike up your skirt and show some friggin pride.

    IF YOU WANT TO HEAR DONALD AND ROBERT PRAISE EACH OTHER BUY IT BUT NOT FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO LEARN!!

    First I would like to say, I was waiting for this book to come out so bad but now that I read it twice it was worthless. I do not want to buy a book that have teh two Co-stars prasing each other back to back to back chapters. I am really shock on how this book is.
