Rich Dad’s Increase Your Financial IQ
Get Smarter With Your Money

by Robert T. Kiyosaki

      Author and entrepreneur Robert Kiyosaki has done it again. Building upon a long line of educational and insightful titles, Kiyosaki has provided a simple, yet thorough guide offering financial education suitable for all adult readers. With a string of successful titles to his name, one might expect another to be a redundant rendering of old material. Not so.

Just released, Robert Kiyosaki’s newest addition to the Rich Dad's line of best-selling books, Increase Your Financial IQ: Get Smarter With Your Money provides the reader with "Five Financial IQ's" necessary to develop financial intelligence and gain financial freedom. With record home foreclosures, a weakening dollar, rising consumer debt, and daily headlines touting financial woes, many people are concerned, if not terrified, of the trajectory of the US economy. Without being exaggeratedly optimistic, Kiyosaki clearly and effectively explains an expansive way of “thinking,” turning economic havoc into orderly opportunity.

Kiyosaki has simplified many of the complexities of financial literacy. However, this is not simply a "how to" book, nor does it offer advice on how to get rich quick. Kiyosaki has imparted sheer wisdom in successfully educating the reader to begin to think differently. He has identified subconscious and environmental factors that inhibit financial intelligence and, at the same time, clearly defined a path to creative thinking. It is this creative thinking, believes Kiyosaki, that leads to financial freedom.

From learning to make more money to improving your financial information, Kiyosaki provides valuable insight into gaining financial knowledge with practical applications from his own life and entrepreneurial experiences. Just under 200 pages, Increase Your Financial IQ: Get Smarter With Your Money, is not a "quick" read. Rather, it is a book that will most likely be read and referenced many times by both new and seasoned investors alike.
