This book was my introduction to Robert Kiyosaki and one that I've read several times over. Here's why: Robert Kiyosaki doesn't say he's never been INVOLVED with networking, he has. What he says is he didn't make his fortune from network marketing. There's a big difference. Remember that when reading other reviews.

This book is all about "networks." Think about it: Goodreads is a form of networking, FB, Twitter, etc. are forms of networking. The Business School can be summed up like this: the rich build networks; everyone else is trained to look for work.

After finishing Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad Poor Dad" I was thrilled to discover this book, which is his professional opinion and take on the network marketing industry. I own a health and wellness consulting business, and partner with a company called Nikken, the world's largest research and development company of safe, highly effective natural health products - and I have come to realize that Nikken has very good reasons for organizing this company with a networking structure. Nikken is one of the quickest growing companies in this country, where we have a tremendous need for more affordable, safe healthcare. Kiyosaki is affirming, and his insights into the financial advantages of the network marketing industry are more than helpful to me and more importantly will help me serve others better!
Please take a look at my website if you are interested in learning how to build an additional stream of (quite substantial!) income, and feel free to contact me for more information. I currently match my paycheck from my 40/hr week job running this business about 10 hours a week in my spare time. I do it because Nikken's products literally saved my health and helped me recover physically and financially from a situation that the doctors and traditional healthcare providers were telling me i would "just have to live with and manage" for the rest of my life, and I would recommend them regardless of whether they paid me or not. People are seeking solutions outside of the pillbox, and I feel a great moral obligation to share the story of how my fiancee and I turned our health around and provide hope to those who are urgently seeking.
Thanks Kiyosaki for helping me better understand the financial and industry structure of my business!

A couple of days ago two of my friends from different NM companies introduced me to the idea of Network marketing. One of them was from Ebiz, the other from Sarso. The Sarso guy was much more open and informative, while the Ebiz guy was hardly revealing anything, but simply was giving their sales pitch to get me interested to attend their meeting.
Meanwhile, I started researching about Multilevel marketing aka Network Marketing and stumbled upon this book. While this book paints highly optimistic visions about NMs, using Rich Dad's motivational lines, it lacks stats to justify the claims. Mr. Kiyosaki should have referenced the pitfalls of MLM, atleast briefly.
After finishing this book I started digging the internet to know more about Amway, world's leading NM company.
Sadly, It didn't turn out to be much positive as it was with Ebiz and Sarso.
It certainly will be a learning venture, joining NM programme, if not a profit making one which justifies the title of the book.

No offence intended to my friends.

After "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" which I read a long time back, I was thrilled to get this book to read. One of the best books written on financial well being. The contents may look to be only for network marketing professionals, but dig a little bit deeper and the book starts to make sense for anyone who wants to be financially independent. One caution though, please have an open mind before you lay your hand on this book. This would be a life changing experience. I would highly recommend this book. Read it, reread it and enjoy the insight you get from this gem.

I got this book recommended by a close friend as I am starting my journey into network marketing business. Honestly, I found this book to be average read based. There were few things which I liked in this book, like
1. Generate income from your assets and not your time
2. Be with people who want to you pull you up and not with people who want to pull you down.
3. The cashflow quadrant - and attributes of people residing in each quadrant.

Things which made me vote it as an average:
1. This book talks about this amazing opportunity called network marketing but doesn't provide any conceptual knowledge. It is mostly about this amazing thing called network and how it makes people wealthy without getting you started on baby steps.
2. Lot of content is influenced by RDPD which makes this one a spin-off book to pitch network marketing.
3. I don't like author cross-selling their other products in the main content. It looks cheap.

Overall, I won't say skip it as it has few words of wisdom in it but I won't recommend it either.

This book is dedicated to those who want to invest in Network Marketing companies. I read it for general knowledge in this area and I think it puts some interesting arguments on the table on why you should invest in this area.

He talks a lot (just like in other books of his) about financial freedom and why you should start investing. About why and how to move from employee/consultant to investor/business owner.

It's my second book from RichDad book series and I found them interesting, they fill the void we have related to our financial education.


Talks about network marketing and it's use and benefits

I have to honestly say that I found this book... enlightening, to say the least.

This book mainly talks about network marketing, any why it may or may not be for you. It talks about the power of utilizing networks (i.e. Metcalf's Law). Kiyosaki also mentions other ways one could get rich and compares them to network marketing.

As someone who has tried network marketing in the past (and failed), it gives me new appreciation for this kind of business. A lot of factors are needed when doing this kind of business which Kiyosaki notes down as "11 Values" which are common to most MLM (Multi Level Marketing) companies. I wish I had read this book many, many years ago before I first tried my hand at network marketing.

I would recommend this book to those who were "burned" by past network marketing ventures, those who want to try out their hand in entrepreneurship and those who are wanting out of the rat race.

Robert Kiyosaki has always advocated people to be financially free. In this book he shows one way of how - by joining a part time network marketing business.

This book gives the true spirit of Network Marketing. It is a must read for newcomers in this industry. It will help the newcomers to get out of the wrong concept people has about this industry. It will also help them to maintain a posture while talking to people and manage rejections efficiently.
