Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki, both successful businessmen, are natural teachers and have joined forces to address these challenges. 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.

"Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime."

They each could have written a book on the subject, but they chose instead to write a book together because of their shared passion for education and their desire to bring emphasis to the importance of financial education. In addition they have designated a portion of the profits from each book to be donated to charitable and educational organizations that also support financial education.

Why We Want YOU To Be Rich, Two Men — One Message was written for you.

Review:

"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?" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

About the Author

Donald J. Trump is the very definition of the American success story. A graduate of the Wharton School of Finance, his real estate developments are the most prestigious of addresses nationally and internationally. Among them are the world-renowned Fifth Avenue skyscraper, Trump Tower, Trump Park Avenue, the historic Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach and the Palm Trump International Hotel & Tower in development in Dubai. His four award winning golf courses, and one soon to be developed in Scotland, reflect his passion for golf. As the Emmy-nominated star and co-producer of the reality television hit show, The Apprentice, and author of seven bestsellers, he is truly a media giant.

Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, the international runaway bestseller, is an investor, entrepreneur specializing in mining and real estate, as well as an educator whose perspectives on money and investing fly in the face of conventional wisdom. Rich Dad Poor Dad, published in 1997, has held a top spot on the famed New York Times list for nearly six years. Translated into 46 languages and available in 97 countries, the Rich Dad series has sold over 26 million copies worldwide and has dominated bestsellers lists across Asia, Australia, South America, Mexico, South Africa, and Europe. He has, virtually single-handedly, challenged and changed the way tens of millions, around the world, think about money.

Miss Charlotte, November 14, 2006 (view all comments by Miss Charlotte)
I haven't read this book yet, however, I believe that it is a 5, simply because the reputations of Robert Kiyosaki and "The Donald" preceed them and this book! I did read Rich Dad, Poor Dad and was very enlightened on how money truly works. I was getting ready for work one morning, when I saw both of these gentlemen on "The Early Show." They had so much information in that little time that they gave. A lot of people in their position would have charged hundreds or thousands of dollars for that kind of information. Most of all, I don't want to be in the "rat race" forever, and I do want to make lots of money doing what I enjoy, without letting money emotionally charge me. I have some plans and dreams I desire to accomplish, and I am DETERMINED to get them done. Just like when Donald Trump told Kwame on his show "The Apprentice" when they were waiting backstage for Jessica Simpson, "time is money." I don't want to waist anymore time, and I'm willing to do a lot of reading and applying to my life. I don't like being at the mercy of an employer or the gov't. That's too much power just because of finances. They want me to be rich?? I want me to be rich too, change the world, work smart, and have a great time doing it.
