About Robert T Kiyosaki

Robert T Kiyosaki is an acclaimed motivational author, businessman, and investor. He is best known for his #1 New York Times best seller book Rich Dad Poor Dad.

He was born as Robert Toru Kiyosaki on April 8, 1947 in Hilo, Hawaii to a family of dedicated educators. After high school Robert moved to New York where he completed his education. Robert proceeded to join the U.S. Marine corps and served proudly in Vietnam as a helicopter gunship pilot.

Robert T Kiyosaki returned to his wife Kim after Vietnam and began working as a sales executive for the Xerox Company. In 1985 Kiyosaki founded a business and investment education company that taught to a large number of students throughout the world.

Since the Success of Rich Dad Poor Dad Kiyosaki has started his most promising business venture, CASH FLOW Technologies, Inc. His company is based around the sales of his literary products and CASH Flow game products.

Robert T Kiyosaki teaches his main philosophy of generating a passive income through real estate and small business ventures. He advocates high risk investments as the path to wealth and discourages investment in securities and mutual funds.

Although he has had great success as a motivational author and speaker much of his financial advice has been highly criticized and in some cases deemed dangerous.

For instance Robert T Kiyosaki has said that’s its better to stick with a few good investments rather than diversifying or investing in a 401k. At the same time he has been quoted in articles giving inaccurate financial advice. In response to his criticism Robert T Kiyosaki has stated that his materials are designed to motivate people to think differently about money not give them a step by step guide to wealth.

Furthermore he is constantly criticized for exaggerating facts in his materials. His own success as a businessman and investor prior to the Rich Dad Poor Dad phenomenon is always questioned. Even the existence of the “Rich Dad” in his book has never been factually verified.

Overall, Kiyosaki’s financial advice is best served to those that have money but have not begun investing and are looking to explore their options.

I have been reading the rich dad books series for close to three years now. I have bought copies for my family and friends.This is one book that gave a kick I will always remember. It got me up to getting started, I liked it when It said"Take baby steps" and I managed to do the baby steps I found the books written in a compelling way to get me to do something about my life in the financial front, even though I am in a country that is economically drowning. The books are full of uncomfortable hard core facts, that has at most times driven me to anger which translated to me taking action. I simple thank the almighty God that these books came during my time because it has changed my understanding of finances and what one should do with money.Being introduced to the conspiracy of those who happen to have money was informatory.

Dear Robert,your book has opened my eyes. And this book tells that all the things written in this is not only a theory but your personal experience of life. That's why you are a significant person.Keep on writing for us.

For those who keep saying the books are worthless maybe you should re-read the parts that say his advice is not a get rich scheme. He has opened my eyes to how money works and how to make great use of your free time. Like someone mentioned before check out the books at a library.

I think that reading Kiyosaki is the same as going to the psychologist: both of them do not solve anything.

The one thing I really agree with Mr. Kiyosaki about is that fear makes people seek to remain in their comfort zone rather than to seek his full potential. Those who have only negative things to say about Mr. Kiyosaki are those who are afraid to take a chance to do something about their situation. One sour grapes only because he feels helpless to get himself out of a rut. Those who worship him word for word are also lunatics because they miss the point of the book. It is not a formula because you have to understand your own uniqueness and use it to make you wealthy. Regardless of whether his background is great or not, it does not matter. He made it, didn't he? Better yet, ask yourself, if you achieved the level of success Mr Kiyosaki made for himself, what will be your opinion of yourself?

Kiyosaki's book really opened my eyes. But, it also made me think that maybe his book was written for those who are already rich and just don't know how to invest in their money.

Kiyosaki is absolutely not a sound financial adviser. He is like the man who made a fortune writing a book called, "how to make a fortune".

If you want check out a different perspective, and not take my word for it, then go to Youtube and search for "Kiyosaki before the books,"

and make up your own mind. If you then want to throw your money at him, good luck.

Funnily enough, years ago he used to tell people the best book to read on financial matters is called, "The Richest Man in Babylon" by Richard Clayson. Funny how he doesn't mention that anymore. I guess you can't charge thousands a head for that advice.
