My Read of the Month:

Title: Why We Want You to Be Rich: Two Men – One Message
Author: Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki
Published: 2006
Genre: Financial/Self-improvement
Ratings: 3.8 out of 5 stars

This is an arresting read that will serve well in giving you an overview of our global financial situation from these two highly successful businessmen.

In this combined-effort book, they challenge readers to think big and provide reasons why we should veer away from the crutch mentality. Reading this also helped me to understand Singapore and our government’s policies better like the reasons behind increasing the CPF take-out age and healthcare matters.

I like the part where Robert shared his views on the confusion that people had about God and money. Commonly, the desire to be rich is mostly viewed as being anti-God, but yet the bible (parable of the talents) rewarded the rich and not the poor.

In any case, he leaves readers to decide on their own set of beliefs, but shares his strong faith in a higher being (namely God).

Pick this up if you want to stretch your mindset or attitude towards attaining wealth.

Who should read it: Those who desire to gain insights towards their personal financial situation especially helpful during this economic slowdown.
