Publisher's Summary

Robert Kiyosaki - author of the #1 personal finance book of all time - has built a legacy around simplifying complex and often-confusing subjects like money and investing. He continues to challenge conventional wisdom and asks the questions that will help listeners sift through today's information overload to uncover ways to assess what's real... and what isn't. And use truth and facts as a foundation for taking control of their financial lives. 

In this new book, Robert fights what’s "fake" and helps listeners differentiate between what’s real...and what isn’t. 

Robert pulls no punches in his assessment of what is passed off as "fact" or conventional wisdom and believes that a strong foundation - for anything we want to build - needs to start with solid, true information. In today’s uncertain times, creating a secure financial future and the peace of mind that comes with it starts with taking action and taking control. 

In FAKE: Fake Money, Fake Teachers, Fake Assets, Robert delivers insights and answers that help ordinary people - who probably haven’t had a lot of financial education - determine what’s "real" and relevant to their financial lives.

Every day we are bombarded with news reports and information and opinions... How do we decipher fact from fiction? How do we differentiate between truth and lies? And determine what’s real... from what isn’t? Kiyosaki believes that it starts with education, financial education designed to make us smarter with our money - and able to fight what’s fake and use what isn’t to secure our financial future. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great book - a bit repetitive - a bit conspiracy theory like

I really enjoyed Rich dad poor dad so I thought I would give this book a try. Overall I really liked the themes discussed in the presentation. But this book really needed to be edited better as there was a lot of needless repetition in the book could’ve been I think 50% shorter than it was. The author has to understand that his way is not the only way and that real estate cannot be acquired as cheaply and readily as it was in the 1970s and 80s. Today one can become very wealthy also from investing in constant dividend payers and razors and you can get rich with increasing dividends income. I just wish the author was more open to alternate methods of getting wealthy

Surprisingly insightful

I say “surprising” because after reading Rich Dad Poor Dad, I saw Robert as a relatively mundane and insightful educator. Some what along the lines of the Author of The Wealthy Barber. When I bought this book I had no clue Robert would go full Mises and unapologetically denounce the entire last century of central banking and fiat currency. This book was surprisingly profound, in that it made many ideas which are commonly considered radical or just plain confused- seem not only obvious but also brilliant. This book is great not only as an introduction to those who have little fiscal knowledge, but also to those like myself who have read the corpus of economic thought and sometimes pretend there are no new ideas under the sun. Truly a great read.

Kiyosaki won’t tell you what to do...

He’ll tell you what he does and give you all the info you need to move on your own. This book is great and is timely in its delivery.

Liked it

I learned a lot about currency, governments, and how the economic system works. Scary stuff! The book wasn’t well edited though as certain sections are copy and pasted later in the book which confused me. Didn’t I read this part already? His Q&A sections leave a lot to be desired. Big fan of Rich Dad. Glad he’s helping out the not so rich people of the world!

Great Book!

Before getting the book, I read alot of the comments. The main criticism it got was.. 'it was too Repetitive'. After listening to the book, I understand why Robert had to be repetitive. He's explaining complex financial terms and ideas, to audience with limited or no experience. In other words the Repetition was good for me. It helped me understand everything he was saying. Again, great book!

This could have been 1/3 the length

very repetitive and unfocused In its message. presents many problems with only a few real solutions (invest in gold/silver mainly). the question answer segments feel a little disingenuous and out of place, as does the spirituality stuff.

the relevant information is very important, and that's why I gave it a mid tier rating, but its spread through plenty of unnecessary fluff.

I loved rich dad poor dad but this book owes me some hours back. get the sparknotes if you can, the key info is still worth a read.
