A practical approach to creating wealth-based on the established principles of ancient Jewish wisdom-made accessible to people of all backgrounds. The ups and downs of the economy prove Rabbi Daniel Lapin's famous principle that the more things change, the more we need to depend upon the things that never change. There's no better source for both practical and spiritual financial wisdom than the time-tested knowledge found in the ancient Jewish faith and its culture.

This book didn’t have many useful tips. This book is more of a book you read if you want to find a balance to life and money it is not really a book loaded with wealth tips.

Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."

Glamorization of the gangster life. The narrative of 50's life was not realistic how 50's thought processed are portrayed is pure fantasy. Allot seems like the victors bias where history is re-told and re-invented if this was a movie it might have worked but this is poor. Robert you should be ashamed of yourself for this garbage how can you even keep a straight face narrating this? Shame on you

  • Be Obsessed or Be Average

We're in the middle of an epidemic of average. So-called "normal" people get up every day, go to work, do what's asked of them, leave promptly at five, and return home to sit on the couch and watch TV. Society tells us that this is what it means to lead a balanced life. Don't stress too much or work too hard. Your career isn't everything. But Grant Cardone thinks this preoccupation with balance has really just given an excuse to be mediocre.

great energy but no real useful information beyond 'being obsessed' at best this should have been a chapter in a book. Disappointed with lack of substantial content but the energy was great. Author needs to 10X his content in future :)

David and Goliath is the dazzling and provocative new book from Malcolm Gladwell, best-selling author of The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers and What the Dog Saw. Why do underdogs succeed so much more than we expect? How do the weak outsmart the strong? In David and Goliath Malcolm Gladwell takes us on a scintillating and surprising journey through the hidden dynamics that shape the balance of power between the small and the mighty.

Besides the clever title was a bit underwhelmed by this book. Don't think it offered anything new. Believe in yourself, the universe, stop making excuses and take action that about sums up the book. To me it was just another law of attraction book. Having said all that I liked some of the content and this book would be more suited to those just beginning a journey of self discovery. But would make a great read for first timers
