I read the post at http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/2596-rich-dad-poor-dad-great-book.html I found the comments interesting and sincere in what they got out of this best selling book....however... Rich Dad, Poor Dad is a fake and a basic sham as is its author Robert Kiyosaki (IMHO.) Yet we can all walk away with incredible knowledge that'll apply to our businesses after reading and investigating this charlatan ourselves. I did an investigative new piece on him for my newspaper a few years ago as he was coming to our area to do a seminar. I came to that conclusion based reading hsi book and trying to figure out the swiss cheese holes of info and ever changing story Kiyosaki weaves. There is a very good website that documents Kiyosaki's false claims at http://www.johntreed.com/Kiyosaki.html. It should be pointed out that the only way Kiyosaki got rich was by selling his book...first to MLM companies like Amway/Quixtar and then others. Kiyosaki, when asked by ABC news in a story they were doing on his methods actually said 9 out of 10 people fail. Not sure you want to buy 18 books from, and take the advice of, a guy who tells you to at the beginning you only have a 10% chance of success. What I do like about his story is if you are offering a legitimate product/service, that is you learn HOW to market yourself, you too can have a level of success like Kiyosaki. But you gotta start...startr anywhere. Kiyosaki, altho having many failures, does keep going back to the grind even after failing. This forum offers incredible insight and information that should be charged for frankly...again IMHO Instead of just downloading the laest ebook or course, if BH'ers will go thru the info with the idea of doing two things, they will find success gravitates to them 1) Read the information with the idea of teaching it to someone else 2) Put time frames and benchmarks in place to start to use, apply and tweak the information you learned that will be taught again to someone else. The idea is if gets measures...it gets done. Its also called ACCOUNTIBILITY. I admire what the learders of BHW are doing and some of the changes they are making. They want us to share our knowledge and make it real...not be the drive-by downloader and commenter. I understand peoples like for guys like Kiyosaki's -- he's taken (or rather his ghostwriter) has taken a complicated subject and put some common sense to it and made it into a book...but frankly many of us here call our the fakers & posers of the world becuz we know better. Well I'm callin' Kiyosaki out. That's just my two cents.
