Review of Midas Touch by Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki

I read this book eight years ago in 2011, when Donald Trump was not the president of the United States, but a successful billionaire business man.

So far, I have bought many of Robert Kiyosaki's books and I have great respect for him, however, I have found that many parts of his latest books are the repeat of his earlier books. It seems he has run out of new ideas and in this book he also repeated many of his cash flow quadrants and BI triangle stuff.

Individually, Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki are both good writers, but when they come together to work on a same book, the result is not great. The good news is that I still have learnt some new things from this book.

The Midas Touch Five Fingers Represent:

The Thumb: Strength of Character, ability to turning bad luck into good luck.

The Index Finger: F.O.C.U.S, focus on what is really important and what you really want.

I read this book in 2007, it is one of my favorite personal financial books of all time. Robert Kiyosaki is one of the most influential people in my life; his books have completely changed my mindset about money and wealth creation. I have bought and read about 20 books by Robert Kiyosaki and his advisers.

The below diagram is his famous Cashflow Quadrant.

E stands for: Employee
S stands for: Self - Employed
B Stands for: Business Owner
I Stands for: Investor

You are belong to one of these quadrants depend on which quadrants that you are generating your income from. You can belong to more than one quadrant at the same time.  For example you can be an employee or self -employed and at the same time you can also be an investor.

A business owner owns a system that work for them. The richest people in the world belong to this quadrant such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Richard Branson, Larry Page and Mark Zuckerberg.


He said the right side is the rich ground, due to tax and use of leverage.
