Unfair Advantage: The Power of Financial Education Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
On the heels of his 2010 New York Times bestseller Conspiracy of the Rich, Robert Kiyosaki takes a hard-hitting look at the factors that impact people from all walks of life as they struggle to cope with change and challenges that impact their financial world.
In Unfair Advantage: The Power of Financial Education Robert underscores his messages and challenges readers to change their context and act in a new way. Listeners are advised to stop blindly accepting that they are "disadvantaged" people with limited options. They are encouraged to act beyond their concept of limited options and challenge the preconception that they will struggle financially all of their lives.
Robert’s fresh approach to his time-tested messages includes clear, actionable steps that any individual or family can take, starting with education. Education becomes applied knowledge, a powerful tactic with measurable results.
In true Rich Dad style, readers will be challenged to understand two points of view, and experience how financial knowledge is their unfair advantage.
What does school teach you about money? In most cases, the answer is “Not much.” If there is any financial education, the courses are taught by financial planners and bankers… the agents of Wall Street and the big banks, the very people that caused and profited from the financial crisis.
This book is about real financial education. This book is about how debt and taxes make the rich richer…and why debt and taxes makes the poor and middle class struggle.
This book explains why the rich get richer, paying less in taxes, while the middle class shrinks - with many losing jobs, homes, and retirement—and paying more in taxes. This book is about the five unfair advantages a real financial education offers.
- The Unfair Advantage of Knowledge
- The Unfair Advantage of Taxes
- The Unfair Advantage of Debt
- The Unfair Advantage of Risk
- The Unfair Advantage of Compensation
These five unfair advantages are the outcomes of real financial education.

If this is the first book from Robert K You read, it is worth buying, since all his doctrine is presented here. However in my opinion the best book and the only one one should read is The Midas Touch, that he co-wrote with Donald Trump. I knew it was the only book I needed after reading it but out of curiosity I bought Unfair Advantage 5 months after. And I have to say that the admiration I have for Robert K massively dropped.
Two words : arrogant guru. The Midas Touch gives you a powerful outlook on the world in all meekness. But this book tries to jail you in a framework, in his models. He sets life milestones that fits what he wants to sell you and tells you to change your lifestyle. There's nothing wrong with giving practical advice but I call the way he does it "the guru way". Keep your critical thinking radar ON while reading, don't let yourself be hypnotized.
The critic could be long, but to make my review short, what disqualifies him as a coach is that he has the "you can't make it without going through what I've through syndrome deep within him. This shaped his whole book and his whole Rich Dad business. It's not about your potential, it's about his financial education, his preparation program, his models - that by the way you really need to invest in, he stresses it the written-hypnosis way at least 50 times.
The purpose of this book is to make you feel unprepared and to sell you his financial education products. My advice : buy the Midas Touch and stick to it. Read it 5 times, this is the only book you need. I have highlighted over 100 passages. Don't buy Unfair Advantage and I'd even say don't buy a coaching program from him.
Contrary to what he tells you, you don't need to sit 3 years in his program to be an entrepreneur. You don't need to learn and then act, you need to learn as you act. You need to process feedback quickly as Donald Trump puts. You have no customers ? Review your sales copy, pricing and product and learn about this in books, and if needed seminars and private calls with experts. No investor is willing to fund you ? Learn about what you missed (The Midas Touch will tell you everything you need on that subject). And so on and so on. As Donald Trump says : your company is your business school. You will fail if you don't treat it as such.
To give you an idea, in 1 month only, I had to create 2 products, test 3 pricing, and try 3 marketplaces to make 1 sale and earn 4$. But boys, I learned so much !!! In your case you could have it all right and make 100$ the first day. But the thing is Robert K wants to put you in a framework lasting for years, While you just need the correct mindset (The Midas Touch + a commitment to learning fast and being humble), to make it happen.
The reason I write this review is because I'm afraid this book might kill the entrepreneurial spirit within many people. Robert K should try to elevate people instead of playing with their weaknesses to upsell them (who is more likely to read every book, buy training programs and find excuses to postpone his decision than someone aspiring to be an entrepreneur). This is why I find Robert K unethical after talking with his Rich Dad Sales Team and reading this book. This person is no longer in the business of educating people but is in the business of making money.
The only thing highly valuable in this book is the worldview on life and the perspective on how to build wealth that are presented. But there are also presented in The Midas Touch and it is in my opinion 100 times better to read about them in that book.
This book however does give some good examples and knowledge but most of it just talks about why having financial eduction is needed. It repeats itself a lot throughout and regurgitates information over and over.
I would still recommend a read if you like Other Robert Kiyosaki books but this is not his best
