Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"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.
