    5-0 out of 5 stars You will learn from this book if you are ready and willing to do the work
    There is a basic rule in taking advice:Never take it from someone who has not achieved the thing you want to achieve. That means, if you want to be rich, you must learn to ignore people who are not rich when they spew their opinions at you. This rule has never been more relevant than now, when comparing these two men of great achievement with the envious, entitlement-minded people who are disparaging the book with ignorant, negative reviews.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Kiyosaki is a broken record
    After reading this book and Rich Dad Poor Dad, I have come to one conclusion...Robert Kiyosaki is a broken record. How many times can I read him write the same sentance and paragraph- over and over again in the same book?Kiyosaki's portion of the book provides some surface information but little depth on how to become wealthy, eventhough he specifically claims that he wants to teach us how to become rich.His writing style is a bit arrogant and provides little value to a person wishing to learn about personal finance.I agree with previous reviews about this book being a cheerleader book.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother
    I borrowed this from a friend so I didn't bother spending any money so at least I'm not kicking myself.However, like another reviewer stated, this is mainly a cheerleading session.If you really want something logical to read that involves personal finance and building wealth, read something by Dave Ramsey.The only REAL way you can get rich (without winning or inheriting money) is by working hard, paying off debt, learn to use a budget, stop borrowing money, and quit saying "I want it and I want it now."It's called common sense. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good Ideas
    If you wanted to be rich why wouldn't you read this book?
    5-0 out of 5 stars A must!
    There are so many books out there that are really page fillers, but this book has substance!Actual ways to really produce the results you desire! You will not be disappointed! I also highly recommend that you read, "Think Like A Billionaire" by Scot Anderson.This book compares to quality and information on the "how to's" to become a Billionaire!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not Some Pie in the Sky Scam, But You Should Be Realistic
    Given the title of this book, reader expectations are bound to be high and some will be disappointed, however, I don't think comparisons to the Trump book are fair.Michael Masterson has literally gone from rags to riches in a very short time.The advice that he gives in this book is practical and useful.Using some of the techniques that he had highlighted in his Early To Rise e-letter and his other books, I've increased my income this year by over 100%.If you follow his advice and make wealth-building your primary goal, you will be successful.Will you reach seven figures in seven years?Those of you will uncommon drive and focus will have an excellent chance.

    3-0 out of 5 stars NOT TO SURE~!
    I am not to sure about this book, not the best book when it comes to making the money, after reading best sellers like Why we Want You To Be Rich By Donald Trump and God Doesn't Run a $2 Shop by Sage Saint Francis i found this book to be a big step down.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Nothing you haven't read before
    I don't get the positive reviews.This author rehashes information that is in all of your basic finance books.This would make a good magazine article, but it's a waste of 400 pages.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Ugh - Another great investor tells us we can't do what he did
    There is a ton of good info in the book but little in the way of specific actionable advice...You will find buried references to certain managers and funds but you will work to find it. More depressing is the revelation that you (as the individual investor) must settle for average and not even try to duplicate the author's own success. Sorry, just stick to average, that's the best you can do (unless you get lucky and find a really good fund manager). ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars NOT TO BAd~!
    This book was good but not terrific. after reading best sellers like Why we want you to be rich by Donald TRump and God Doesn't run a $2 Shop by Sage Saint Francis i found that this book just was not in the same leauge.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Buy and Homework
    One of Jim's suggestion was to "buy and homework".This definitely stresses upon the time and commitments that have to be devoted into staying updated on the stocks that you own.However, aside from reading the headlines and listening to conference call, Jim does not disect company's income statements as I wish he could have.I guess for this task, I will have to find another book.But overall a very insightful book.Another thing I like about reading his book is that I get to listen to him on his radio, to see him in action.The combination of radio and the book make for a really good re-inforcement.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "THE BOOK" is actually quite good
    Cramer has done a great job explaining how he analyzes the stock market and offers solid advice on how to put together a portfolio. This is a great book for beginners as well as practitioners interested in Cramer's way of doing things. Still, I wish he would come out with a book that delved into more detail on his advanced strategies in the last chapter, and title it Jim Cramer on Running Money: Winning Strategies for Equity Hedge Funds or something along those lines. ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not Very Good
    I have read a lot of personal development books. This book is very poorly written, has bad arguments which loop around to create reason, and I could not imagine giving this book to some poor kid in South America, southeast Asia, or Africa and telling them, "here read this book, you are starving but it is a holographic illusion, your Consciousness or the Hologram Illusion did this, it is not real." The author of this is born too well off, is lost in his Rich middle class American world filled with Western Philosophy that isn't applying to the rest of the world, and needs to strike a reality check. I do believe thought creates action but this is a little sick behavior from the author.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Despite obvious problems, still willing to use ideas
    I want to believe.If it's true, it will work regardless of my "belief."In fact, I even used the author's "Process" on my discomfort with his system. 2-0 out of 5 stars NOT TO BAd~!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Robert Allen gives you the formulas, the numbers.
    Many books on investing try to pump you up, motivate you, but they don't tell you exactly how to make money.But this book, and all of Robert Allen's, tell you how to calculate each possible deal ahead of time as well as why so you can come out ahead; or on the other hand, what would cause you to lose money. That is, his books are specific rather than just vague wild dreams. And what could be more motivating than having the workable techniques in your hands! This is his very best book yet, in my opinion--the actual formulas, the numbers, that he uses himself.It is great. This is that most vtial thing, the arithmetic itself.

    3-0 out of 5 stars There is always something to learn
    Although i find the book to be pretty outdated and based in seller financing, there are some other topics as taxes that were interesting for someone like me that does not know much about property taxes. There are other books out there that are a more worthwhile read than this one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My first Robert Allen book. Still a hot seller, 20 years later!
    I bought Creating Wealth back in 1985, exactly 20 years ago. Initially I was looking for stock and other investing advice. After reading Creating Wealth, I added Nothing Down to my library and went to work investing.

    Great book, although the ones finding it are probably on the prosperity path already.Anyone in recovery or working a 12 step program could benefit from this information. Read chapter 5 of this book with the 11th step. This book can help you go from dumb, sick and broke to smart, well and rich.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WISE SAGE IN-YOUR-FACE WISDOM
    Randy Gage is the acknowledged master of in-your-face wisdom. His new tome does not disappoint the reader and is loaded with insightful rants from a professional speaker and marketing guru that is known for giving brash, blunt advice delivered with a holier than thou attitude.Readers would be wise to ignore Mr. Gage's critics and in-your-face style of being and doing and read the book cover to cover with a open mind. Last time I checked Mr. Gage's bank account was in the seven figures and the yellow Viper you see on ghd book cover really is parked in his garage. So he ain't blow'n smoke nor am I.One thing is for sure, if you leave your comfort zone and take the books rants to heart, you may well find that you are no longer dumb, sick or broke.Rant on Mr. Gage, rant on!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Vintage Gage. Brilliant, but brash.
    "Vintage Gage. Brilliant, but brash. Insightful, and in-your-face. Thought-provoking, and threatening. A real-world look at whatkeeps you broke, and a road map on how to get rich. Packed with insights on how you manifest a life of health, happiness and prosperity." ... Read more

    Great book of Wisdom. Most importantly USABLE. Well written, no details left out on EXACTLY HOW to do each step.You can tell Thomas has "been there, done that". Unimagineable amount of professional resources that comes with the book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars COMPREHENSIVELY awesome
    I like this because it is indeed a "kit".It is comprehensive guide to pre-foreclosures and taking advantage of things before auction.It will probably take the average reader 3-4 times to comprehend everything.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Everything you ever wanted to know about foreclosures but was afraid to ask
    I purchased this book some 6-8 months ago and I have used it and the resourses provided by Thomas on a daily basis.I am a nurse and I am looking to retire int he nxt couple of years.You cannot buy another book on the market that provide the informaiton and resources that this book provides.

    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!

    This is definitely a book for those who realize they have to change their mindset to break out of the blueprint they've been dealt from parents, family and community.There are so many underlying thoughts and sabotages that we put on ourselves everyday.Each one continues to bring us back to a level that is usually inconsistent with our goals.I talk to many people during the course of the day and I find that too many people have goals that they'll never achieve because of the type of thinking they do on a daily basis.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A message that outlasts time
    Yesterday I was reminded of this awesome little book after interviewing someone who listed it as one of his favorite business reads. George S. Clason's "The Richest Man In Babylon" is one of the best books I have ever read.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Everything you'll ever need to know about money?
    I have read and re-read Clasons book, and I honestly believe that his simple, thought provoking and powerful story, contains all the truths one has to learn about when it comes to the subject of money.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Simple, effective, and very powerful.

    3-0 out of 5 stars and the money keeps on coming!
    This book really helped me to learn the keys to financial freedom. It explained the rules and helped me to not follow in certian traps with money and how I view it. I really liked it and would recommend other books such THINK LIKE A BILLIONAIRE by Scot Anderson and RETIRE YOUNG RETIRE RICH by Robert Kiyosaki.

    5-0 out of 5 stars simply the best for the just plain fabulous and broke
    I'm in my early 30s (young), a grad student (fabulous) with a past in retail and nonprofits (broke).I had given up on most personal finance books because as soon as they mentioned mutual funds, my eyes glazed over - I was lucky to make the gas bill every winter.I wish I'd had Suze Orman's Money Guide for the Young, Fabulous and Broke years ago.She assumes the best of us - I WANT to have a mutual fund someday! - and wades right into the mess of credit card debt, student loans, and how to reorganize your finances when you've got no property to leverage.For the first time I can see myself really getting out of debt and, someday, putting down money on a house.Not soon, but someday.And this book has the clearest and most user-friendly layout I've seen around such a touchy subject as screwed-up personal finances.It's soothing because you can find answers so fast.There is hope.The answers are all here.Thank you, Ms. Orman.I am recommending this book to all my friends who are not balancing their checkbooks due to fear of what they'll find. This is a good book for anyone of any age who has not yet wrangled their finances.It is not too late!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great resource for anyone who's striking out on her own
    This book is easy to read, fun, and offers some great practical advice for people who may not have the greatest control over their finances yet. The one part I'm not crazy about is the suggestion that charging things to your credit card is okay when you're just starting out. Seems to me that you should avoid creating debt at all costs. But the rest of the advice Orman gives is solid and helpful -- and given in terms that are easy to understand. ... Read more

    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.

    5-0 out of 5 stars very good all-around reference
    I primarily work as a structural-architectural engineer and am becoming more and more involved in civil-site work.This handbook is exactly what I was looking for in terms of something that would quickly get me "up to speed" in the fundamentals of civil-site design.1-0 out of 5 stars Difficult to follow!
    I am in a class at Community College of Baltimore Countyand we are using this book at this time. Our whole class along with the Professor find this book to be very difficult to follow. The book constantly repeats itself making it extremely boring to read and is not fluent at all. They have examples that reference charts that are 3-5 pages apart from the problem being discussed the formulas you almost have to figure out for yourself how they are used and there are alot of typos.5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Pub
    Ever since I purchased this publication I can't stop using it.Every civil engineer should have this as part of their reference library, regardless of your area of specialty.It providesmacro to micro scale explanations of general processes, design applications, etc in a very readable format.More times than I can remember I have looked to this book for an answer or at least for some guidance and was throuroughly satisfied.No it is not a definitive reference for civil engineers but its' breadth and usability overshadows any technical shortcomings.If I had to have just one reference book for my area of practice (general civil), this would be it.Yeah, yeah, the "Standard Handbook for Civil Engineers" is a more definitive reference, but I usually find out what I need in this pub.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Rule#1 Rules!
    Overall this is the best investment guide I've found yet. Rule #1 is "Don't lose money." Fair enough; no one wants to lose $$. But how? The author answers that question. First, buy wonderful companies. For Town, that means companies with strong and consistent growth: 10% minimum average annual growth for EPS, free cash flow, sales, and book value for the last 10 years. Efficient, well-managed companies, with great return (10% or higher) on invested capital. Once you've found that company, determine the fair value, and buy it ONLY when it's at a 50% discount, thus giving you a "margin of safety" against the vagaries of the "Mr. Market."
    5-0 out of 5 stars TAKE YOUR TIME WITH THIS ONE!
    When you read this book, you'll discover:
    5-0 out of 5 stars Good Stock market information
    He tells you to buy the stock at a discount price and that is part of the method of how you will not lose money. You use formulas to figure out what it will be worth in the future and then decide how much you want to pay today.

    2-0 out of 5 stars NOT TO BAd~!
    This book was good but not terrific. after reading best sellers like Why we want you to be rich by Donald TRump and God Doesn't run a $2 Shop by Sage Saint Francis i found that this book just was not in the same leauge.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Shopaholic's Dream, Come True!
    To say this book is written for females from a feminine perspective is a misnomer.While that may be true, it is also undeniable -- anyone reading this book will benefit from the author's practical and realistic advice. The entire book can be summed up in the four recommendations everyone can and should do to have financial solvency.Readers will enjoy and appreciate how the author compares things we do in our daily lives ( i.e., organize the closet) to be more efficient , as guidelines to getourfinancial house in order.I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it for all women (and men) looking to become financially independent -- and have fun while doing it!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Another straightforward financial book by Chatzky
    Jean Chatzby has a special knack for reaching the average consumer and clarifying seemingly complex, frightening or confusing financial topics. Much of what she covers SHOULD be taught at home or in school but, if consumer spending patterns are any indication, people aren't picking up the information before adulthood...for whatever reason.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Guys, Bad Guys and Wimps
    This was not the book I expected it to be, but it has won me over.Kim isn't saying that the mechanics of investing are different for women, but the motivations, rewards and value of investing groups are.That's why there's so many references to "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" etc. - go there to learn more about pure investing.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The real deal
    Rich Woman is great for women who are just beginning to take control of their financial future and step out into the world of investing.

    Well, I guess I can try to review this book from the only perspective I read it from: that of a student.I had to read it for my CFP class on Insurance, and, as an introduction to most forms of insurance, it explains the forms in a very methodical and systematic way; it was very easy to follow and tough to get completely lost.Read more
