Too many people are much more interested in the quick-hitting scheme, or trying to find a short-cut to real wealth.

o 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."
o 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.

About the Author
Robert and his wife Kim live in Arizona.
One of many in the Rich Dad series, Kiyosaki's abridged pep talk about financial wellness is a rapid read as narrated by Dave Mallow. Speaking with gusto, Mallow evokes the entrepreneur in everyone with rapid sentences that are targeted towards action. The summaries at the end of each chapter are read more slowly, allowing the reader to process the sometimes detailed information. In the bulk of the discussion Mallow moves between financial explanations and personal anecdotes in a warm and understanding tone. In addition to the summaries, each chapter ends with thinking points, some of which are worded to incite the reader to action. The smooth delivery helps make contemplating major financial decisions less daunting. M.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
