    Editorial Review

    Personal-finance author and lecturer Robert Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective through exposure to a pair of disparate influences: his own highly educated but fiscally unstable father, and the multimillionaire eighth-grade dropout father of his closest friend. The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his "poor dad" (whose weekly paychecks, while respectable, were never quite sufficient to meet family needs) pounded home the counterpoint communicated by his "rich dad" (that "the poor and the middle class work for money," but "the rich have money work for them"). Taking that message to heart, Kiyosaki was able to retire at 47. Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not much to learn
    I found his advises similar with what I knew since my childhood (save money, invest to bring you more money, don't spend much, real estate is good, etc). It does not give tips on what "rich" people know (at least I suspect they would know more). Like how and where to get valuable information. How to buy stocks, what to look for, nothing of that. May be inspirational book for some, a poor kid who became rich... Tells 100 times the same things, annoying at some point.
    2-0 out of 5 stars "Good" Salesman; QuestionableBook
    RICH DAD, POOR DAD seems contradictory in more than one way:economically and philosophically.Probably, Kiyosaki's most inviting, yet deceptive, chapters is Eight, "Overcoming obstacles."Here, he is at his most fervent; one can feel he believes what he is writing is true.But it is not necessarily true about life itself.
    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT!
    This book is very motivational and understandable.It doesnt matter what your background is on investing, this book will help you learn and identify great investments! It reveals the way you think and how to develope the right way of thinking for Wealth!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another great in the Powertalk Series
    Using the mentality of "henry1983" all the great classics ever written by the greatest authors that ever lived deserve to be rated "one star" because "you can find them in the library" as if the rating system has anything to do with where someone obtained the content! Books here are reviewed by people who *read the book* regardless of whether they got it from the library, a local bookstore, as a gift, or at Amazon.It's almost embarrassing that this needs to be explained to what I assume is an adult--so this person may have some kind of ulterior agenda. The very fact that he rated it one star for that reason and then stated in his writing that it actually deserves 5 stars, means he invalidated his own rating and should therefore be removed (and take this paragraph along with it).
    5-0 out of 5 stars Why buy?
    Hey Henry from Hong Kong...News flash...copying this tape set is illegal!! That is why you should buy it. Besides it is a great set of interviews.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad
    Nice job from Tony, but Prechter lacks deeper knowledge of the basics of finance and macro-economy to be able to make such affirmations. Not to mention that he over-simplifies all matters to make and re-make his point. Of course, his pessimistic view may still prove to be right and then he will be called a guru again. But how long has been since he declared these points and nothing happened? Some months, right? As he also agrees, TIMING is key to make or not to lose money on financial markets, so to me this book is 3 stars: not bad, but no good either. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Life is to live...
    I think deep thinking people tend to be unhappy because they're not living life.They're idealizing and rationalizing life.Some of the concepts here may be good, but reading this book will leave you feeling empty, even if you agree.It's better to spend the time living your life than reading these kinds of deep books.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Give this book as a present for anyone you care about
    The more you read this book and go deeper into the principles of Covey the more you discover yourself and others. For many people reading Covey's book or listening to him speak literally changes their lives. This is a powerful and effective recipe for success indeed and highly recommended for people in training.
    5-0 out of 5 stars All Time Classic
    This book is an exceptionally well thought, intellectual work. I admire Mr. Covey for his in-depth analysis of human relationships and the new concepts he introduced like emotional bank account, paradigm shift, and writing a family mission statement. I truly believe that it is extremely important for everyone to read this book. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Valuable Lessons Well Presented
    This audio program is that rare combination of valuable, practical advice presented in an entertaining, easy to absorb manner.It's clear Roger Dawson knows his topic well, but what separates him from the many other "negotiating experts" is that his material is well-organized, and filled with many real-life, entertaining examples of his principles in action, making it easy and fun to learn as you listen.5-0 out of 5 stars Win-Win
    I have read many books of this genre. I listed to this audiobook set and it is great. The presentation quality is excellent, but the content quality is fantastic. For example, his win-win section is better than any other I have seen. Most people (even experts) seem to think that win-win mean that one person wins and the other person is made to think he also wins, but is not quite that way (even if they don't say it, their end result is that it MUST be that way based on their model). Dawson's is a true win-win as is this audiobook.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Great tactics for people without morals or a conscience
    A great eye opener for the non-salesperson!However, Dawson's tactics are what make the sales profession a sleazy business.I would never deal with anyone knowingly using these tactics, or at least I'd never deal with thema second time.His negotiating examples are riddled with bogus schemessuch as creating fictitious higher authorities (i.e. I'll have to run thedeal by my committee, my investors, my partner, etc.)He even suggestsmaking commitments you and the other party know you can't keep. Paraphrasing: 'Come down another $2,000 and I promise to get your invoicepayments in 5 days before due date,' Dawson says. 'You and he both knowit'll never happen.But at least you let him save face by pretending hegot a concession.'Bull-hockey! We're dealing in lies and deceit here,and calling it game.These tactics are good if you are void of moraldecency and are not looking for repeat business.Otherwise, learn them sothat when you see them, you can run like hell! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!
    Dale Carnegie is one of the authors I have admired for so long. There are numerous reasons why this book is a classic one. He deeply believes that in every person there is good and you can approach it. Of course, there are many negative people who don't like this book because they see everything in black and white. Carnegie on the other side advocates a really delicate, positive and humane approach to everyone around you. It comes very close to "treat the others as you want them to treat you". I am sure that if everyone read and apply the principles in this wonderful book, the world will be a better place. I am sure that you will be pleased as well with his talent to really understand what drives people. Some of the key and basic motivators he discussed are sex and being important. His viewpoint is very close to the one of the bestselling author of scientfically guaranteed male multiple orgasms and ultimate sex. After all genius things are usually simple. Carnegie explores the human nature and common hot buttons together with the reader and gives you tools to manage and push them at your will with the help of numerous examples. I liked that the book is practical, easy and fun to read, and most of all that it delivers great value. I can not say the same for many other books. Definitely get a copy especially if you are a "good" person and prefer to treat people with respect and dignity.

    5-0 out of 5 stars If only...
    If everyone in the world read this book just once, it would be such a more enjoyable place to live in...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very uplifting, great paradigm for living
    It's difficult to give enough praise to what Stephen R. Covey does.I love reading his books and almost anyone will benefit from browsing through the different stories about how people had the courage to face their problems and change by engaging in positive behavior.To state the obvious, 'Living the 7 Habits' is an inspiring read.I would urge a bit of caution, however, in that the laboratory of the real world may not cooperate much with a person living the seven habits.On the other hand, Covey never says it's easy and he at least indirectly reminds the reader that incorporating the seven habits into one's life is an enormous amount of work.

    Zig Ziglar definately gives alot of thoughts and ideas in the book. Some of the things he said, really hit home to me and I felt I could really apply what he was talking about.
    5-0 out of 5 stars so what if hes christian?
    a very ignorant thing to do would be to exclude everything he has to say because he would cite the bible or jesuses teachings.given alot of people are christian, alot of people dont mind.i myself am not christian, im a setian, however it doesnt mean that even when he cites the bible, what he has to say isnt valid or doesnt hold water.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Right on Target Advice!
    "In my own life I always pray for guidance as I choose my goals," writes Ziglar. In the margin I dated it and wrote "I do too." This book contains so much rich, practical, doable wisdom, not wonder it's a classic for achievers. Persistence leads to desired results. He quotes Robert Collier in making the point when he noted, "Success is the sum of small efforts--repeated day in and day out."Read more

    I am always amazed by the thoughtware of Jay Abraham. I have most of his published stuff, ranging from this book to all other audio/video resources. In real person, during public presentations which I have attended, he is not impressive - in fact, quite boring -, but when he writes, I hold him in great esteem. 5-0 out of 5 stars Jay Abraham has the best advice for growing businesses!!!
    Jay Abraham literally shows you how to get "everything you can out of all you've got".His book provides insight into what works in marketing your business.Most people get caught up in the day to day tasks in building thier businesses.Jay Abraham provides specific methods that WILL bring you more business.He has a list of clients that have gladly paid his hourly rates and sales commissions that will amaze you!By purchasing this book, you are able to learn his methods at a small fraction of his consulting rate!If your business does not grow after you have read his book, then you are not following his advice.I have added his book and free downloads from his websites to my library.Correction... this one I keep on my desk (not on a shelf).This is a must read!!!!Buy it today!!!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Do Nothing BOOk
    Peter Guber has no business telling people this take on Hollywood,His huge ego is present on every page.Several more harder working people in the business found him to be a foul mouth jerk who complained all the time.I would go so far as to say the movies he bankrolled are shallow pieces of trash, put together by someone who belongs in the garbage

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Very Interesting Hollywood Book
    I enjoyed reading "Shoot Out". It is filled with behind the scenes stories of how movies were made. This is really how the business of movies really happens.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Eternal truths (and lies)
    This is the most candid and honest record of Trump's deals by the great master to date, or so it seems. This impression can be attributed, however, to the great job Tony Schwartz did on this book. Compare this to Trump's "How to get rich" and you know what I mean.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Written After The Early Years: Good Trump Entertainment
    Let us give him his due. He has great style and tenacity and the nerve. This book was written in better days before his fall. I have visited a number of his buildings - which I understand that he was closely and personally involved in the design and construction - and they are beautiful.
    3-0 out of 5 stars For What Its Worth
    You never know whether to ever really trust what Trump says or not. I actively avoided reading this book for some time. I just resisted it. I must have felt that it is a propoganda piece and I was right. It is just another win for Trump. Another chance to boast about himself and his competence. And the ironic thing is the lesson to be learned by the man on the street is exactly that. In real estate, it is simply connection and bravado after a certain level of core competencies have been achieved. This book does not go into the details of how to do what he has done.....as step by step approach beside being boring would have been ridiculous. First thing to do is go back in time and be born in a family where your father is a wealthy builder. And be born to a father who was historically in the right situation himself--building homes when the soldiers came home and started families. The second thing is go to the premier business school in the nation. After that, you do a few deals with your father and learn the business inside and out. After that make some connections through your father's friends. And the most important thing is to start your career and venture when the real estate market is absolutely deppressed. You can't help but make money.

    The successful companies are not afraid to confront the problem when it arises and discuss it rationally.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great pairing Amazon!
    When I read "Crucial Conversations" I found myself tearing through it in long spurts, driven by an intense interest in the authors' discussion of how we handle those tough circumstances life throws our way. It makes the case that we all need to understand our style for handling the inevitable duress of a difficult conversation, and they complement theories with excellent, actionable strategies that work well in the real world.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent roadmap
    This book is not your everyday self help book.It provides a fail-safe roadmap for tough communications.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The original theory of constraints story
    A particularly easy, menorable read -- I still refer to it in my engineering discussions in the business place.A must read whose applicability goes beyond manufacturing engineering.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Classic!!!
    I was required to read this book as apart of my MBA program.Boy am I glad I was!!!This is an excellent book that uses the favorable fable approach to get points across.There are excellent principles that are presented in a way that seems more like reading a NY times best seller.Very easy read!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Still effective after all these years.
    Even though the first edition of this book was 1984, the message is still applicable.The Goal of the business is to make money, and Goldratt tells us how in a very entertaining read.Subsequent books by several authors still mimic his theme of continual process improvement through the reduction of bottlenecks which uncovers still more areas for improvement.This is one book I always buy for new managers when they start their corporate journey.I bought this one for a new CEO friend of mine.He thought it was great! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Readable introduction to economic theory
    For anyone coming to Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations the first surprise is how readable it is. Famous classic of economic theory though it may be, this is no dry academic tome to be read only by people with a scholarly interest in economic history. There are no detailed tables of statistics of the sort one might expect to find in a modern book on the subject, and no mathematical analysis, indeed not very much quantitative information at all. Instead there is a long series of examples to explain such ideas as why it is more efficient to divide work among several specialists rather than have a complete task fulfilled by one person, or why slave labour is ultimately more expensive than paying free workers, even workers in cities like Boston or New York, where wages were far higher in Smith's time than those in his native Scotland.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Brutal, Yet Interesting Read
    This was absolutely a brutal read; however, it was more or less a paradox described as painfully interesting. The mind of Adam Smith is incredible, and I encourage an interested reader to duke it out as you'll most certainly come out of the book more informed. I would recommend Wealth of Nations to anyone who has a mild interest in Economics.Brian Oley

    Editorial Review

    The rich are different from the rest of us, if for no other reason than U.S. tax and securities laws allow them to invest in ways that keep us from catching up to them. That's why 90 percent of all corporate shares of stock are owned by 10 percent of the people. Kiyosaki believes it's possible for anyone to move up into that 10 percent, but it takes a different view of investing than most people have: it takes a plan to be a successful investor. And a plan is more than simply buying and selling, or collecting "assets" that bring in no cash and are thus more akin to liabilities. The way most people invest, "they might as well be pushing a wheelbarrow in a circle," he writes. A plan is "mechanical, automatic, and boring," a formula for success that has worked historically for most of those who've used it. Kiyosaki's "rich dad" (actually, the father of his best friend) tells him the simplest analogy is the game Monopoly: buy four green houses, trade them for one red hotel, and repeat until you become rich.Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Kiyosaki - Does it Again!
    Kiyosaki's third book in his Rich Dad, Poor Dad series delivers again.This book is a logical progression of RDPD and CFQ building on his principals of building wealth for the first half of the book.Afterwards, Kiyosaki unveals what the reader has been waiting for . . . just how the rich invest.He disclaims the book plainly for the reader looking for the next hot stock tip or get rich quick scheme.The book delivers on it's title from a principal information standpoint, which should suit readers that realize that wealth is built up over time and based upon timeless principals and a strong foundation.The last two phases of the book are extremely well-written.Kiyosaki covers financial ratios, IPO offerings, taking companies public, and of course real estate principals.He presents his information to get you thinking not to give you answers for he knows the answers will come if the action is initiated.Another aspect of Kiyosaki that I particularly like is that he discusses his failures, which should let the masses know that riches are often found after many failures (more often it is the norm).So if you want easy answers - don't buy this book.If you want principals, ingredients for success in building wealth, and systematic structure on what you should be thinking in acquiring and KEEPING your wealth - this is your book!

    4-0 out of 5 stars One of my most picked up books!
    I have read this book and keep this as a reference when referring to my questions on money and finance. This book is a definite read and its definitly the type of books that you read several times for reasons of referring back to the ideals of money. Another book I reccommend is THINK LIKE A BILLIONAIRE by Scot Anderson.
