I have heard his name too many times. I know he has authored a lot of business-related books. But I really do not know what is his contribution to the mind set of the people that every one who has read his books becomes a believer of his thoughts. I haven't read any of his books... This leads to me thinking: who is Robert Kiyosaki? Aside being an entrepreneur and a author. Do you have any idea who is this person? Do you know Robert Kiyosaki?

Robert Kiyosaki is one of my favorite authors, he is not one of the top students (in fact he drop out twice) or come from average background. He learn from school of hard knocks. I find his English easy to understand and his illustration simple and do not need a PHD to understand.

You mean the author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad plus many others? I think there's a board game out now for many years as well. It was one of the many books on my reading list from my property investing courses. I don't personally know him, though I have seen videos of him speaking. One of his contributions to the mind sets of people is to encourage people to think & do things like the rich. They are really common sense things that are easily put in place by many middle class people, even down here. I don't think he's the be all & end all, but does play an important part in educating people on a healthy view regarding money & those who have it or control it. Before, I used to think it was a sin to have money, to buy property & accumulate wealth from wise investments. Now I can see our middle class advancing rapidly towards becoming independently wealthy & managing their investments well. I can see that the wealthy have very important roles in society & to become wealthy is easier than I first thought. The author was not born into a rich family & many times in his life he was flat broke, bankrupt & living on the streets with his wife & maybe a baby too - I can't recall accurately though, as it has been a while since I've last read anything on him.

Hi dear This author Robert Kiyosaki, reminded me of his best seller book, Rich dad, poor dad". It's in fact a good read, and I would recommend you to read his book. I could said he is a business guru. His books are very inspiring and tell us why people without qualification can be successful in business as well as generating passive income, compared to those who are very qualified but didn't managed to retire freely yet struggled to make ends meet. No harm doing the reading. hope to hear from you soon.
