Trump and Kiyosaki Say They Want You to Be Rich

A new book by Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki offers only vague strategy.

In a world filled with financial peril, two men think they can save you. One comes from the mean streets of midtown Manhattan, a survivor of the reality TV jungle. The other is a fighter from Hawaii, hardened in pits of real estate investing expos and public television pledge drives. Who are these self-proclaimed straight shooters? None other than mega-developer Donald Trump and entrepreneur Robert Kiyosaki (best known for his New York Times best seller Rich Dad Poor Dad.).

Together, this dynamic duo has collaborated on Why We Want You to Be Rich, out in bookstores Oct. 10. The book seeks to free you from the banality of middle-class financial life -- and the folly of most personal-finance advice. Or so its authors would like you to believe.
