For years, Robert Kiyosaki has firmly believed that the best investment one can ever make is in taking the time to truly understand how one's finances work. Too many people are much more interested in the quick-hitting scheme, or trying to find a short-cut to real wealth. As Kiyosaki has preached over and over again, one has to truly under the process of how money works before one can start out on trying to escape the daily financial Rat Race. Now, in this latest book in the popular Rich Dad Poor Dad series, Kiyosaki lays out his 5 key principles of Financial Intelligence for all to understand. In SHARPEN YOUR FINANCIAL IQ, Kiyosaki provides real insights on these key steps to wealth: How to increase your money -- how to assess what you're really worth now, what your prospects are, and how to start mapping out your financial future. How to protect your money -- for better or for worse, taxes are a way of life. Kiyosaki shows you that "it's not what you make...it's what you keep." How to budget your money -- everybody wants to live large, but you have to learn how to live within your budget. Kiyosaki shows you how you can. How to leverage your money -- as you build your financial IQ, knowing how to put your money to work for you is a crucial step. How to improve your financial information -- Kiyosaki shows you how to accelerate your wealth as you learn more and more.
A nice book to trigger thinking into the right direction of what to do to create, maintain and/or increase wealth.
While Kiyosaki seems to like to repat himself a lot and takes a few sentences to repeat one and the same point, there is still a lot of value in the read, because he touches on a few important topics.
Personally, I have the feeling he reapeats himself alot to make the book look bigger and thus justify its prices, but I don't mind because he makes things so simple, that he could probably say the same thing in 50 pages, but then who would buy such a tiny book discussing wealth creation :)
I loved it. The two big messages I got out of this book were: Learn as much as you can about financial matters; and when it comes to investing, start small and gradually work your way up to bigger things as you learn more. Robert Kiyosaki has quite a different approach to many other property investment advisers and I think it is healthy to 'hear' a variety of perspectives.
