Book Summary

Reveals the secrets of how the wealthiest Americans become even wealthier, and how all Americans can learn how to benefit from some simple investing secrets.

The rich get richer. The poor get poorer.

Robert Kiyosaki reveals the secrets of how the wealthiest Americans become even wealthier, and how ALL Americans can learn how to benefit from some simple investing secrets -- merely by knowing where and how to invest their money.

We've all heard that plaint many times before. But finally, that long standing monetary tradition has been shattered, as Kiyosaki explains how even the smallest investor can start benefitting from the investing patterns of the richest folks.

Robert Kiyosaki knows all this first hand. There was a time in the 1980s when he and his wife, Kim, were so cash poor that they were forced to sleep in their car. Today, however, the Kiyosakis are multi-millionaires, and are considered highly sophisticated investors.

Based upon the four tenets of Rich Dad, Poor Dad (are you an employee, self-employed, business owner, or an investor?) the Investing Guide explains the nuts-and-bolts approach to understanding the real earning power of money, and how you can start cashing today. Along the way, Kiyosaki explains how he's invested his monies as his own wealth has grown over the years.

After settling in at the Marine Corps Air Station, I called my friend Mike and we set up a time to have lunch together with his dad, the man I call my rich dad. Mike was anxious to show me his new baby and his new home so we agreed to have lunch at his house the following Saturday. When Mike’s limousine came to pick me up at the drab gray base BOQ, the Bachelor Officers’ Quarters, I began to realize how much had changed since we had graduated together from high school in 1965.
"Welcome home," Mike said as I walked into the foyer of his beautiful home with marble floors. Mike was beaming from ear to ear as he held his seven-month-old son. "Glad you made it back in one piece."

"So am I," I replied as I looked past Mike at the shimmering blue Pacific Ocean, which touched the ...
