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.

One thought on “

  1. So you read that book?
    There are something meaning.

    — A short meaningful summary —
    If you are willing to give your life, you will find life. In a strange way, you are being given an opportunity to face a point in life most people spend their lives running from. you will enter a realm of lfe beyond life and death. When I decide to become a rich person, the poor person inside me had to die. When I decide to become a entrepreneur, the employee inside of me had to die. When I decide to become thin and healthy person, the fat and lazt person inside of me had to die.

    Everyone wants to go to heaven, but no one wants to die. Go beyond the old me an seeka life few people experience.
