We go to school to learn to work hard for money. I write books and create products that teach people how to have money work hard for them.

      LOL funny

      But I'd hardly call it stealing. Robert Kiyosaki is a genius when it comes to creating REAL wealth by accumulating assets that also give off cash flow in process (i.e businesses, real estate). He also makes it very clear as to how to distinguish between assets and liabilities. "Rich" people accumulate assets while "poor" people accumulate liabilities.

      I'll run with his knowledge anyday!

        You may want to dig a little deeper. He talks a great game but has he really done any of this himself. Try to find proof that he follows his own advice. He makes his money through Slick Marketing! Go to one of his seminars,it'll open your eyes.

    Yeah, solar dave, I agree with you, his advice is great, but if you follow his life, he can't even live his own words. He has gone bankrupt a number of times, and his success isn't something anyone would call reliable. However, regardless, I love his books, they opened my eyes when I was young... however, playing his board game was ultimately the best advice he ever gave me.

    Despite whether he is a "fraud" or not, his books and videos have changed my life in a positive way. Just don't get "too close" to him and you won't risk being hurt.

    Don't get me wrong. His books are sound advice! What he does once he sets the hook is another story. If he never did anything but write the books and lecture he would still be wealthy and admired by all. Instead it's the old saying "do as I say,not as I do!"

    Robert Kiyosaki has a very questionable past. I have read all of his books. He makes some good points however he implies that everyone is stupid because they are new to the information that he teaches.

    That is what turns me off about this guy. Where is his Rich Dad Friend and his son that he grew up with ? Good luck findng them. Other people have tried. They do not exist.

    Great marketing but...You have to question his Credibilty.

    I would have never gotten into internet marketing if I hadn't read "Rich Dad, Poor Dad". One doesn't have to become a disciple to get valuable information from someone who goes with "Guru" in front of their name. His principles are sound. If you start nitpicking the story, well that is a slippery slope
