Summary:

Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki join forces for the first time since Why We Want You To Be Rich!

Question: What's an entrepreneur's most important job?
Answer: Creating high-quality, stable jobs.

In a world of high unemployment with an economy that needs new jobs to recover, who isn't hungry for a solution, something that brings about recovery fast? Many look to government, but it's becoming obvious that governments can't create real jobs. The little-known truth is that only one group can bring our world back to prosperity: It's entrepreneurs, and particularly, entrepreneurs with the Midas Touch.

Entrepreneurs who create the most jobs, and the most prosperity for the most people, are the ones who win. They are entrepreneurs with the Midas Touch.

Thinking of starting your own business? Already have one and want it to grow? Then before you waste any more time or any more money, you owe it to yourself, your family, and the world to discover and master the five points of the Midas Touch:

1. Strength of character 2. F.O.C.U.S. 3. Brand 4. Relationships 5. Little things that count

There are thousands of business books. This one is for entrepreneurs. It teaches you what business books won't'from two of the world's most influential entrepreneurs.

    I read Midas Touch listened to this audio on my Christmas drive from Sydney - Canberra and return. I've wanted to read it for sometime and now that Mr Trump is president. There was an added interest level for me. I was not disappointed in this book. I found it to be full of excellent content - personal observations, open transparency by both Robert & Donald in their failings and best of all, their learnings. It gave me all I was seeking and more. Well read by the narrators and I liked the structure of the book across the five core principles (fingers analogy) and how the perspectives of each author addressed each. It's a book I want to read again to absorb what I missed the first time (rich content) and of course, to take some notes next time. Only draw back with audiobooks is that you are often doing concurrent activity (eg driving) while listening so you can't readily take notes...also, where there are images / diagrams, they are not available to you (none for this book). Great value, insight & clearly outlined actionable learnings for the business owner, entrepreneur and business student. Finally, given all the controversy around Trump as he steps into his presidency, I have to say I feel we will be in great hands if his sense of integrity, determination to provide excellence, self declared expert negotiating skills & success formula is applied to the next few years of world politics. It may be overly optimist on my part but I'm excited about the potential of what may be achieved and the ride ahead!
