There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The bad: He repeats the same personal stories across multiple books (creates more page content) and strings you along without much details on financial knowledge, just general guidance.
The good: As general as his concepts and philosophies are, they are still very powerful and important. Much of the material in the books are hints for you to do your own research and apply from external knowledge (research combined with action). There where many chapters I screened to then reread, and find important hints I could've easily not noticed.
If your looking for passive reads that build your knowledge over time? Then these books are not best suited. It would be nearly jmpossible to learn financial literacy through his books alone without consistently applying it with further research and application on your own finances.
As simple as his books are, they have really pushed me to be proactive. Which is much more difficult, but well worth the cost.

Be aware this isn't a step by step type of book, with a formula to follow.
It's more high level than that.
The entire book could be summed up thus :
The mental abilities and attitudes (which is the "financial intelligence" on the book title) of the investor regarding money is what makes the investment either good or bad.
In other words, 2 people could earn the same amount of money, but one saves more, and thus is more "financially intelligent," as rule number 2 is "keep more money."
A third person might earn and save the same as number 2, but puts that saved money into stocks and shares and doubles it (an example!) and so observes the rule of getting your money to work for you, and also rule 1, "earn more."
And so on.
There are 5 such financial intelligences, and working on any of them will help, and all of them together is synergistic.
Please Robert, get a proof reader. My mum could do it, she’s great at it. Let me know. Anyway, be prepared to read the same things 15 to 20 times at least. There’s grammar mistakes everywhere and a ‘hat’ that’s clearly meant to be ‘that’. It’s a little embarrassing.
However, I do enjoy how everything is a little anecdote, whether fictional or not. Personally his books give me the drive and focus that I’ve been looking for, which I suppose is the most important thing, hence 4 stars.
Oh and in this book he likes to boast about how he likes and personally knows Donald Trump. You’ve been warned.
Didn't you want to learn how to get along in the world, read Kiyosaki. He's an inspiration.
Real life explanations in which most people can relate to, or point out. For this book to really stick in, I personally believe the reader needs to be willing to change their views to be able to understand the knowledge which is being presented here. Once you are able to think more objectively about yourself, only then will you be able to really grasp the concept of what Robert is trying to teach.
In a day where governments are simply printing money investing in real estate will help you gain more wealth as well as secure your financial future.
