    I read this book a few years ago and found it nothing but hot air and repeated empty bla bla. I dumped the book somewhere towards the end, as I did not wish to waste any more time. Why do I bother to review this book now? The answer is clear: I am afraid that Mr. Trump's big words (such as "I will make America great again") are also nothing but hot air. Not only that. I am also afraid that Mr. Trump's belligerent attitude towards Iran might lead to a WWIII in case Mr. Trump succeeded I read this book a few years ago and found it nothing but hot air and repeated empty bla bla.

The answer is clear: I am afraid that Mr. Trump's big words (such as "I will make America great again") are also nothing but hot air. Not only that. I am also afraid that Mr. Trump's belligerent attitude towards Iran might lead to a WWIII in case Mr. Trump succeeded in becoming President of the United States. Mr. Trump may be a successful business man (I think he is very good at delegating), but I think he is a total failure as an author. I hope he won't get the chance to be a failure at running our country. There is a German word for people like Mr. Trump. It is "Dampfplauderer" (which can be translated into "steam-chatterer"). Sorry if this review went a little off topic. But is it really off topic? "Dampfplauderer" remains "Dampfplauderer". P.S. (Nov. 3, 2015): Reading the book "It Can't Happen Here", by Sinclair Lewis, I learned a perfect translation for "Dampfplauderer". It is "gas bag". This review was written in summer 2015 and edited on July 23, 2016. P.P.S. (July 23, 2016) For more about Donald Trump, please read this article: http://www.jimsnowden.com/2016/07/21/...

    Got this as a Christmas gift. It is a TERRIBLE book. The whole book is them sucking up to each other, saying how much they love to teach, and how you should buy their other books. That is honestly the entire book. DO NOT BUY THIS - HUGE WASTE OF MONEY!

We have fun. We enjoy the game. Sometimes we lose, but mainly we win… but most people don’t see making money as a game. They think of it as life and death, winners and losers.“ Kiyosaki : “Survival, the struggle for life or death itself. Which is why they are terrified of losing… That’s why they look at investing as risky.” Trump : “And wind up in risky investments. It’s a financial tragedy.” Kiyosaki : “Their loss of money?” Trump : “No! The fun they miss out on. Making money is fun! Life is supposed to be fun. And millions of people are living in fear instead of having fun. That’s the tragedy.” --------- NOTABLE QUOTES (Kiyosaki) : ----- --------- “Donald and I invest to win, while others invest not to lose.” “It is crucial to be true to yourself, to be true to your own answer.” “Security and freedom are not the same… they are opposite values. That is why the people with the most security have the least freedom.” “Leverage is the ability to do more with less. And you should not use leverage unless you have the financial training to apply it.” “We are all born rich. We have all been given the most powerful lever on earth: our minds. So use your mind for leverage to make you rich rather than to make excuses.” Investment questions to always ask yourself: How do you... *** Reduce risk & increase return? *** Find great investments? *** Know a good deal from a bad deal? *** Invest with less of your own money and more OPM? *** Get the experience without risking money? *** Handle losses? *** Find good advisors? “It is not the quest for money that makes me rich. It is the quest for knowledge. It is the desire to learn more, do more, accomplish more, and help… Money is just the score, a measure to tell me how we are doing.” “The reason why amateurs are amateurs is that they do not love the game enough .” - The War of Art, by S. Pressfield *** Love what you do *** Have patience *** Act in the face of fear “The winners of the game are those who love the game the most. If you do not love the game, get out. There’s probably something more useful for you to do. Something more exciting for you.” “Winners take control. The control of these 6 truly separates the rich from the poor: " *** income *** expense *** asset *** liability *** management *** insurance “Most people are good at reducing expenses, but very few people are good at increasing sales.” “Rich Dad recommended I get a job learning to sell. ‘If you want to be an entrepreneur, you need to know how to sell.’ “ “Once you have control, get creative.” “I play to win. And the prize goes to the one who plays the game with the least risk and the most confidence.” “Most people invest money and do not invest much time. Donald and I invest a lot of time before we invest money. We prepare to invest… Entrepreneurship is not risky. Being unprepared is risky.” “In life, talent is not enough. If you want a starting position, you need to take yourself to a whole new level.” “What I want in life is up to me. There is no one in the way. If I want something, I know that desire is not enough. I need to do what it takes to be a winner before I can win.” “Creativity is infinite. Therefore money is infinite.” “I saw people further ahead in life, simply because they had taken their education and their professional careers seriously.” “Learn to make money with money. All you have to do is take $10, and see how long it takes you to double it to $20. You could buy something and sell it on the web. If you are good, you may double your money in one day.” “It is important to be able to read numbers.” “Professional investors invest with insurance. Amateurs do not.” “Change starts in the head.” “The key is to have honest and experienced partners.” “If you are rich, your job is to hang onto your money, and multiply it.” “We are all born geniuses. A person needs to seek the environment that’s best for his or her genius to flourish.” ”We keep financially negative people out of our lives.” “Ask yourself ‘Is there a very rich person inside of me ready to come out?’ " Other important questions : *** Leverage : “Can I train other people to work for me?” *** Control : “Do I have a protected system that belongs to me?” *** Creativity : “Will the business allow me to be creative and develop my own personal style and talents?” *** Expandability : “Can my business grow indefinitely?” *** Predictability : “Can my income grow if I do what is expected of me? If I am successful, and keep expanding my business, will my income increase with my success and hard work?” “To be successful, often you need to choose between the death of the old you, and the birth of a new you. Many people stop growing because they are afraid of dying. The old identity refusing to commit ego suicide. So life remains the same as the world goes on.” NOTABLE QUOTES (Trump) : ------------------------- “Nothing is easy, but who wants nothing? Your financial intelligence is greater than that.” “The Chinese are industrious and disciplined.” “If today were suddenly to become a memory, what would you like to remember about it?” “If your reality begins with your dreams, your dreams will become your reality.” “Being stubborn is a big part of being a winner.” “I tell people to see themselves as victorious. Positive thinking works. It has a lot of power.” “My demise was written about in major publications, and even then I refused to agree with them. My reality was about my dreams, not about numbers. And I won.” “Imagine living your life, and then finding out you missed your own destiny in the process.” “I’m not a thrill-seeker when it comes to finances, and it’s best if you’re not either.” “Winners remain young at heart. They aim high, and have the enthusiasm and the plans… Then they pay attention, and focus on what it’s going to take to achieve them.” “Savers are still living within the realm of fear. Investors have conquered that fear, and are reaping the rewards... Savers wait for a long time, which often means they will miss out on opportunities.” “If you know what you’re doing, you don’t need a lot of space to do it in.” “The most desired recruits for medical school: music majors. Their left and right brains are equally developed, because music is mathematical and creative at the same time. It also requires discipline and long hours of practice… So start listening to both sides of your brain, and you’ll start seeing some results.” “I always did more than what was required. That, I think, is a key to success… Expect to do more. What you’re willing to do may determine where you’re willing to go.” “Excuses aren’t acceptable. You learn not to whine, but instead keep your equilibrium and persevere.” “I ask myself 'What have I learned today that I didn’t know before?' ” “The first and best victory is to conquer self.” “Have fun.” “Precision, instinct and tempo are all necessary in order to become extraordinary.” “I have noticed people with deep faith of some sort often seem more grounded and more productive. They have a sense of purpose that can’t be destroyed, and they are not easily discouraged.” “Read as much as you can. Learn as much as you can everyday.” “Pay attention, and go the extra mile every single day. Don’t wait for opportunity to come to you.” “Do not allow blind spots to interfere with or ruin the blueprint of your life. It helps to think like a builder, and know that every inch of a building or every aspect of your life has to be accounted for. In construction, we can’t be haphazard, or hope that things might work out okay. That’s setting the stage for disaster. We have to know.” “Don’t view your financial education as a choice, unless you want to encounter big problems later on. Do a review of your financial status once a week, to begin with. See it as necessary as doing your laundry.” “What would you do if you didn’t need money? What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?” “Vision remains vision until you focus, do the work, and bring it down to earth where it will do some good.” “Raise the bar on yourself. Never settle for doing enough. Today’s world is competitive, and moves so quickly, that you will have to raise your stamina level if you expect to remain in the competition.” “I would be very serious about thinking about the future.” “Renewed diligence is of utmost importance.” “…A place with positive memories, in order to proceed with positive energy.” “To retire is to expire.” “The good life isn’t over until you give up on it.” “I have a lot of projects going on, and that’s one of the reasons I am rich.” “Never underestimate your good fortune.” “Keep your focus on success, and elevate your life to where it should be.” “Genuine enthusiasm is hard to beat, and the odds will be with you.” “I’m a cautious optimist, but the cautious part comes first.” “Being an entrepreneur is not a group effort. You have to be willing to go it alone for a certain amount of time.” “A business is literally an expression of yourself.” .

    The authors say that they feel that people should be "rich" so that they can have money to take care of themselves. They say that too many people rely on the government to take care of them when they get older; i.e. social security.

If you do have money, you need to learn how to make it grow and protect yourself since when you have money, others want to take it from you. Money gives freedom, choices and a sense of security, since you cannot rely on jobs giving stability anymore. Very practical, interesting read.

    Awesome book! It's not a "how to get rich" book, but more of a "why you should be rich" book. Great read for any entrepreneur or middle-class person!

    I don't want to finish the book because I don't think it will be of any value because the first 70 pages are mainly composed of these things- Kiyosaki and Trump praising each other most of the time. Along with more self-promotion of their other books. And what a perfect fit these two are for each other to write this book. How much they care about middle class people but also think they have an entitlement complex if the baby-boomers among them retire or get healthcare.

    Not a great book, but not the worst one I have ever read. The advice given is to invest in real estate and participate in multi-level marketing schemes. Of course, the book is from 2006, when real estate was a lot more popular than now. (and maybe multi-level marketing as well).

And as far as multi-level marketing-the advice given doesn't seem to take the products sold into consideration as well. Other than this often times flawed advice, I am not sure what these men are offering other then to show how accomplished they are. Additionally, Kiyosaki seems to constantly condescend his real (poor) father, who seems like he was quite an honorable man from the discription. Finally, both men seem to put down advice like "live below your means" and "pay of your debt". While neither of these are particularly fun or enjoyable, I don't think our economy would be where it is today had people lived beneath their means and paid off their debts. And I still don't know why they want me to be rich. That said, there was some geninuely good advice in the book, such as to love what you do (and what you invest in), and to urge people to invest in things that are transparent. (Which makes sense). While stocks may not be 100% transparent, there are ways to skew stock investing to ways more transparent.

    I didn't like the style of this book, dual opinions on many different topics regarding wealth creation. It was a horrible read for the good first part but it did have interesting stories sprinkled throughout the book to drive me to the second half, where it was better. Some of the stories will stick with me, like Trump's about the history student who seemed like an expert on WWII. He said learning about it made him realize he needed to learn about WWI and the history that preceeded that.

I think this is a wonderful perspective I think we could all benefit from having the ability to grasp, considering the wealth of knowledge out there, none of us know as much as we think. I still have a hard time believing both Trump and Kiyosaki embrace the notion of the 'rich getting richer' and 'tax cuts hurt the economy' rhetoric given what they should know to the contray. It was a decent book, about what I expected from Trump but Kiyosaki never fails to deliver in any of his books. This one fell a bit short, but still worth the read.

    Very enlightening on the personality of both men. After reading this, I would not worry at all about Trump being President! Also, for an older book, they described what was going to happen to our economy to a "T" Very inspirational book as I am moving into the B quadrant myself.

    Having a common direct message from two very different views that are in alignment for the reader creates an environment of trust for the direction of the reader. There is a video attached to one of my editions that was also very enlightening.

So the opening of this book right out the gate it almost lost me.  "The Bible says that if you give a man a fish, he will eat today, but teach a man to fish and he will eat forever" Who was the editor of the book, who fact-checked. I really hate when people quote a bible verse that doesn't exist.  But maybe most people don't read or really pay enough attention to get it right. Most people invest because they don’t want to lose out. You should be investing to make money. If you want to fight the rich or the government this book may not be for you.  If you want to join the rich and use the government then this book will be for you.  “Life and business can be combative.  Make sure you fight the good fight and get away from feudal battles and battlegrounds. “ DJT  Our current economy needs people creating jobs not people looking for jobs.   “Donald Trump and I use debt to get rich.  Our bankers want us to borrow as much money as possible.” RK “Call me a control freak, but I don’t accept excuses.  Winners take control by accepting responsibility.” DJT  “There is a saying by professional hitmen “ If you are going to kill someone, don’t look into their eyes”” RK My question would be how many professional hitmen does he hang out with.  Like do they go get pizza and then have a knife fight to see who picks up the tab? This book could have been about 40 pages long and really contained as much content.  A lot of the book was dedicated to talking about how much money they have made in real estate investments, and their other books to check out.  My big takeaways from this book were don't rely on the Government, prepare your own retirement. Invest in things you can control.  The biggest point that they made often that I wish they would have expounded a little more on was educating yourself on money.  They mention reading magazines, their books, and getting a better understanding of the global market.  But being a tough critic these answers left me wanting.

    First off, don't read this expecting to learn the HOW of becoming rich. It is about WHY, and that means these two business powerhouses explain the problems with our country's social security system, and other programs.

It is about WHY, and that means these two business powerhouses explain the problems with our country's social security system, and other programs. In brief, don't expect the government, your company, or any other institution to set you up for a comfortable life or retirement. By understanding the flaws in our systems you are better able to understand why YOU need to take control of your own financial future by acquiring financial literacy, then applying it to your own situation. There are a few tips one can glean on how each of these moguls got to where they are, through some (mostly) interesting storytelling. It's also quite clear that Kiyosaki is the more caring of the two while Trump is an emotionless cutthroat businessman, but there's much to be learned from both of their styles and approaches. A good read to understand the problems in our government systems but for the how, check out some of Kiyosaki's or other thought leaders' books on the topic of personal finance and entrepreneurship. 2019 update: I think the world is now privy to the emotionless, cutthroat style of Trump I originally mentioned in this review.

Donald is more to the point, but still in all honesty, I don't believe this book taught me a lot more than I already knew. The motivation aspect is great and it reminds one of the path you have chosen to follow, but in no means does this add to my journey of wealth creation over and above the motivational factor. I assume that reading Donald's biography would have the same impact. Not too boring though, but not even close to some of the best books I've read about money and business.

    Good advices if you're someone who'd lap up a material just because of the celebrity status of its creators. However, if you actually want to know why it's important to be rich (or that the state of being 'rich' has lots of variations and forms), you'll get more out of reading other classical works --such as "Social Contract"-- as well as other biographies of inspiring people such as Steve Jobs, Isaac Newton, Galileo Galilei, etc. Being rich gives one a lot of opportunities to explore the world Good advices if you're someone who'd lap up a material just because of the celebrity status of its creators.

I think that's one emphasis that's lacking in this book.

    Why We Want You To be Rich: Two Men, One Message by Donald J. Trump and Robert T. Kiyosaki is a book that can bring you one step further into the realm of how to make money successfully and why you should. It provides much needed insight on the United States economy and how it is drastically different from how most perceive it to be. Both Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki and successful businessmen and multimillionaires with years of experience, and they wrote the book not just to make money, but Why We Want You To be Rich: Two Men, One Message by Donald J. Trump and Robert T. Kiyosaki is a book that can bring you one step further into the realm of how to make money successfully and why you should. It provides much needed insight on the United States economy and how it is drastically different from how most perceive it to be. Both Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki and successful businessmen and multimillionaires with years of experience, and they wrote the book not just to make money, but to educate others to be as successful as they are. When I was looking for a second book to read, I was skeptical of reading this one due to it possibly being political, but it did not take long for me to realize that it is most definitely not. There is some really useful information in this book that I honestly believe anyone can utilize, regardless of your opinion on either of these men. Throughout the book, Mr. Trump explains some of his experiences as a businessman and how he turned a million dollars into billions of dollars. Mr. Kiyosaki also explains some of the experiences he has gone through, starting out from a poor family in Hawaii and transforming into a notable multimillionaire. Both men are also respected authors and have been on the New York Times Best Selling Author's List many times. One thing I did want to mention is that the book put's a strict emphasis on hard work and dedication. Both men mention multiple times that hard work and dedication is key to being successful; it is the amount of effort you put in to everything you do in life that makes you successful, average, or under average. I really did like that Mr. Trump and Mr. Kiyosaki mentioned this multiple times; it makes it stand out and more memorable (and is excellent advice). Additionally, I wanted to mention what I believe is the main theme of the book, which is that people should be rich in order to be able to take care of themselves. What Mr. Trump and Mr. Kiyosaki mean is that if everyone has a lot of money for themselves, they are able to take care of themselves and be happy. This eliminates too many people relying of the government to take care of them, whether they are young or old. Trump and Kiyosaki say that the government is not reliable and should not dictate the survival and/or happiness of an individual; people should be able to and should want to take care of themselves. The final point I wanted to mention (and that I personally thought was the best advice the book had to offer) is how Mr. Trump and Mr. Kiyosaki suggested for someone to start out in order to eventually become very wealthy. Both men suggested to invest in real estate and start your own business, to make your money work for you, instead of you working for it. Overall, I truly did this enjoy this book and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to be successful and is willing to put in the hard work to do so.

    This book was phenomenal. Why We Want You To Be Rich is a great book for financial education. Trump and Kiyosaki throughout this book stress the importance of financial education as it is dire to them that the public is informed. The book switches between perspectives of Trump and Kiyosaki so the reader can understand both of their point of views.

Why We Want You To Be Rich is a great book for financial education. Trump and Kiyosaki throughout this book stress the importance of financial education as it is dire to them that the public is informed. The book switches between perspectives of Trump and Kiyosaki so the reader can understand both of their point of views. The beginning chapters of the book describe the starting process of the origin of the book. Robert's rise to fame is from his wildly successful book Rich Dad Poor Dad. This book addresses finances and how America is in financial struggle. "We need to teach Americans how to survive today, not tomorrow." Trump says this because he is very concerned with where America as a country is going as a whole. Robert Kiyosaki is a wealthy business man who came from the middle class. He knows the middle classes struggle and he sympathizes with them. I would read this book again. It made me more aware of my financial surroundings and how I will need to manage my money correctly to be successful. When I make my presidential bid I will remember what I've learned from this book.

    not recommend to read this. Donald just put some useless facts in it. There's only one thing I could learn from this book is not ever read Donald's books again.

    The points and concerns brought out by the Trump and Kiosaki are really intresting to think about. The advice seems compelling and I think Donald Trump is just hilarious sometimes, so I like hearing what he has to say. I don't watch The Apprentice so that version of him isn't where my opinion reflects from. I've read other books of his. I think the content of the book is important for society to know and read. I feel the facts concerning the generations before us, ours, and our future generation The points and concerns brought out by the Trump and Kiosaki are really intresting to think about.

I feel the facts concerning the generations before us, ours, and our future generations is pertinent to start considering our futures in finances and retirement options. Some of the content rubbed me the wrong way but I think that's normal considering the author's are both extremely wealthy and powerful men.

    It was pretty much a praise festival for each other. I have not read any of Trumps earlier books but I have read Robert's . I did find it funny that Robert seemed to write most of the chapters and Donald wrote a 2 page edit at the end of each pretty much agreeing with the other author or not answering the question at all. It is not a how to get rich book.. you need to buy their other books/ products for that. I did like that fact that .. they say it is up to each of us to get educated about our It was pretty much a praise festival for each other.

    This book is really just a pitch for their other products, Trump University and the Rich Dad books and games. While I think it is easy to admire both men as smart and successful businessmen, I think it is extremely dangerous to tell the average American to take risks with their investments. They do bring up some good points to help encourage or motivate people, however the whole book just seemed like a sales pitch.

    I got most of the advices from Robert Kiyosaki and not Donald trump. Donald was just piggy-back riding on Robert's more effective wisdom and was like an echo.

    looks like Trump just BSed his way through the book, Kiyosaki's thoughts were more coherent, not to say many of Trumps ideas were great.

Trump, Robert T. Kiyosaki Foreword: Sharon Letcher Special Contributions: Meredith McIver Very Special Thanks: Kim Kiyosaki Honorable Mentions: Everyone who made in any way this book possible! As a person who at the beginning didn't really understand the works or the concept of President Trump's BIG BIG SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why We Want You To Be Rich: Two Men, One Message Authors: Donald J. Trump, Robert T. Kiyosaki Foreword: Sharon Letcher Special Contributions: Meredith McIver Very Special Thanks: Kim Kiyosaki Honorable Mentions: Everyone who made in any way this book possible! As a person who at the beginning didn't really understand the works or the concept of President Trump's Campaign, or who he even managed to not only get into politics, but win the election with The Most Original Presidential Campaign of All Time, I have taken this book to get a little bit of knowledge what kind of a person He trully is! So far so GREAT! As far as I have read it, The Book is much more based on the concept of Financial Education, and smart investments, through transparent bussiness uphoolding, which contribute The Investor on The Long Run! Robert T. Kiyosaki should also not be forgotten, as the person who at the time of The Book's first basic concepts, created the Idea of Financial IQ! The Idea had sold through books in 26 million copies worldwide! The Two got together to write what I have so far witnessed to be The Greatest Book of All Time! Why? Because as an old saying says! "Give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day! But teach a man how to fish, and you'll feed him for the rest of his life!" This duo has created a very inspiring book which I look forward to reading as much times as I have to because my financial state currently isn't the best! And I want to myself to get Rich! Special thanks to Meredith McIver and Sharon Letcher for working their way to meet these two financial geniuses! Very special thanks to Mr. Kiyosaki's Wife for being a support for making The Book possible! Thanks to everyone who has ever contributed to This Book in any possible way! I remember The First Time it got out I was 10 or 11 I saw it in my town's library and wanted to read it so badly but didn't dare because Mr. President Trump's look on the cover startled me a little bit! He looked like an amazing person Just, but Fair and at the time I couldn't possibly get myself to read a book of such An Amazing, not just Entreprenuer, but An Amazing Person! Also I probably wouldn't have been able to understand a single word, that had been conveyed through the works of what has so far been proven to be a masterpiece of Financial Guidance to a Big Rich Life! I hereby am willing also to support His political campaign, although I have the least knowledge of politics, and every time I pushed myself inside I got seriously burned 😂😂😂! But I support not only His campaign, but campaigns of any politician, entreprenuer, or person who is willing to follow The Great Three Advice of President Trump's and Robert T. Kiyosaki's Book: 1. No tricks and fraud! 2. Clear enough to be transparent! 3. With sound clarity of your works and investments!!! PART ONE FINISHED: The Golden Rule! Warning Premonition of a Possible Thermonuclear Global Devastation! The Book has so far proven to be not great but Incredible, and a Revelation of a Dangerous Outcome that could await us! The 5 chapters of this book are Like the First Five Books of The Bible! They talk about faith in one's capabilities to open the Gates of Freedom through coming into terms of Equality of Human Value of Individual Life! The first 3 chapters talk about how President Trumoand Mr. Kiyosaki got together, concerned about the future of the world not just now! The book was published in my country, Croatia in around 2006 or 2007 and the Last Global Economic Crisis hit Croatia in September 2008! Times here were extremely roigh with incredible unemployement rates, and low income, destabilized pension funds, real estate market property values dropping! But we managed to survive thanks to our National Bank Goverbors who insisted on making our currency the HRK (Hrvatska Kuna) strong, without inflating it's value!! We are just a piece of the puzzle here and it all starts with America! As it is said and I'll try to quote as nearly as possible because I'm reading a Croatian version of the book:"When America sneezes, the rest of The World catches a cold!" America sneezed financially in the mid to late 2000s causing a terrible global economic crisis which led the Oil prices jack up sky high which caused wars in Lybia and Egypt! The next was Syria whose war was started in 2011 and persits to this day!! With geopolitical strategy terms in mind in the most recent year Syria is one of the rare countries that Russia has an openong to move it's armies through land freely! And as The Crimea had been attempted to be separated from Russia, by overthrowing the president of Ukraine at the Time, it would lead to complete blockage of Russian troops to move by sea also!!! The only way is the Air! Let's get to chapter 4! The dangers of the Baby Boomers! According to a statistic in the 1960s and 1970s combined the world population rose for about a 1 billion people or more! With America's weak pension funds, when these people retire no one will be able to feed them, not just in America, but in The Whole World! And what happens then! If America has 75 million pensioners on their backs, and the Dollar loses its value, then the prices of Oil will jack up again now as high as they have never been before! And by blocking Russia's land and sea ways, and Middle East disturbances it could've been a World War 3 scenario! Thankfully, President Trump, as of rexently, ceased all millitary operations in Syria and agreed to cooperate with Vladimir Putin in order to reach a better agreement between The Two Superpowers! However The Question remains? Why do we have to Put Our Trust in People Like President Trump and President Putin when we could peraonally get rich and not rely on pension fonds which are almost always unprofitable in the long term! Because everyone has to be Their Own Master, and Take Care of Themselves First so They Can Take Care of Others! This all that happened throughout The History of Mankind isn't actually any persons direct fault! In the process of learning and science we all make mistakes! But the mistakes shouldn't be too great that would end the world up in a way which would cover the future in scenarios of Films like The Terminator series, or the Fallout game franchise! It's time to take matters in our own hands regardless of anyone being a Democrat or a Republican, like actually Donald himself implies in The Book, and get rich to secure our futures! And finally remember The Golden Rule! Luke 6:37:"Do to others, as you would have them do to you" Part Two: The Great Restaurant of Four Money Investment Quadrants! Update: I have so far read chapters 6, 7 and 8 which have surprised me to a great degree in context of financial content maturity! So Far Even So Better! It's unbeliveable how someone like President Trump could actually get in the White House, and become The President of The Untlited States of America! Or is it? Well, not really anymore in my humble opinion! So far this book has predicted the possibility of a Third Great World War, which would look like a Clash Between Two Extremely Advanced Alpha Civilzations, but yet teaches that it's all a part of the process of what I would call Financial Evolution! It's actually nobody's direct fault! Nor the left nor the right! Nor the liberals nor the conservatives! Nor the rich nor the loor nor the middle class people! But in the same way It's almost as if it actually is everyone's fault we got to all this trouble during our history as Mankind! As The Book Teaches The World is like One Great Machine which runs on money as its fuel! If any organ should fail, the body gets critically endangered! And if The Left or The Right Hemisfere of The Brain Get a Stroke! The Body collapses under its' own weight! So plan your investments carefully, and Invest In Victory to Be a True Victorian! Don't invest in covering up your financial mistakes! When you have a damaged kidney that needs replacement you don't cover yournribs with a bandage, am I right! No! You apply Yourself to a Organ Transplant Committee to get you a new kidney! So what do you want to do! Do you bandage your ribs in hipe the kidney will hold and function, when it quite possibly won't? Or do you search for an organ donor to get a new functional kidney! The Choice Is Up To You!!! But there is One Thing I'm certain of!!! It's that President Donald J. Trump and Mr. Robert T. Kiyosaki encourage you to go and find an organ donor As Soon As Possible!! Invest in your future NOW!! Or there is a possible chance you won't have any future!!! And don't forget The Rules of The Restaurant! Matt 7:1: "Judge not, that ye be not judged" Chapter 9: Life Is A Game! In What You Invest is What You Will Become! I read Chapter 9! It is about Men, True Men Who Are Willing To Sacrifice Anything For The Prosperity Of Their Families!
