This is a most important and clearly written book that analyses many of the elements needed to achieve success in business. I only wish it had been available fifty years ago when I got started. Both authors relate their quite different experiences to reach similar conclusions and reflections about their successes and failures. They show that they share the grit and determination needed to succeed. This is a book that every parent and perhaps grandparent, who have good communications with their children should read and encourage the children to read. It should be readily available in schools and colleges for teachers and students to learn from. Young people who study this book and shape their plans on its recommendations and teaching should be well set to succeed in their endeavours provided they have the 'thumb' characteristics described. Messrs. Trump and Kyosaki must be congratulated for finding time, in their very busy lives, to collaborate and produce this very valuable book.

I literally had my mouth opened when reading the afterword saying that immigrants children aspire for opportunity while their parent often dream of job security and a socially safe life for them. These last words were so unexpected and so to the point with what I'm living. It further convinced me that this book was a God send for me.
When reading the parts written by Donald Trump, I was initially thinking things like : well, you're telling me stories like how you built the Trump tower and how you got scammed and had a multi-million dollars debt to pay. This is a wealthy-man problem, do you think somebody will lend me 1 million dollars in the first place ? I was thinking : This is so disconnected from real life, this guy had investment money and was rich from the beginning, I wish I had the same kind of problems to deal with.
Luckily I decided to refrain this mindset early in the book, and give him a chance by paying attention to what he was saying. And what I found was gold. There is a reason behind every example he is giving, and he explains the point he is trying to make every time. This guy knows what he is talking about and what it will take a normal person to get in the position where he is. He is everything but disconnected. Once again I insist, see this book as a book written by wise people who weighted every word to educate people on complicate matters. None of them needed to write this book, but we needed them to write it.
I've read this book in 3 evenings only. After reading it the first day, I turned off an offer for an executive position with significant shares that my guts and my entrepreneurship spirit has been alerting me about for a while. This is why I think this book was a god send. It is the kind of book that gets you moving if and give you the how to, how to do, and how to think provided that you are aligned with the way of seeing life of the author. This was my case.
I recommend this book to every person, and especially young person not simply thinking of starting a business, but actually working and moving to start it. Dreamers won't benefit, but you will.
Now I'm equipped to start my web-tech company.
