Robert Kiyosaki, is awesome, I've read several of his books and they were evolutionary in his advice and experiences. But this book had an agenda to push you towards his way of thinking. I am not dissing his dream about being a giver/educator, or his idea's. He says right off that this is not a religious book, but I couldn't help feeling like he was preaching to me. I am not a gazillion billionaire like him, so my opinion should be taken with a grain of salt,
I kind of hate how he plays his Rich Dad Poor Dad (RDPD) down as an marketing pamphlet for his game. Everyone knows that RDPD was an awesome book along with Cash-flow Quadrant. Yah, however I can't recommend this book, honestly I want to ask for my money back on this one. I won't do that because in general Robert Kiyosaki is awesome. The righteous kick he is on in this book made it a real struggle for me to get through it.
He should change the title of this book, it seems to be more of a Biography then anything else. When I bought this book I was looking for pivotal mind blowing evolutionary business changing philosophy like Cash-flow Quadrant. Not a biography or anything about his faith, what his definitions of good vs innuendos evil. If it had said "Second Chance, My Biography" I think the whole idea of what I was buying and my expectations would have been different which would have altered my opinion as well.

If you could sum up Second Chance in three words, what would they be?
insightful, useful, brilliant
What did you like best about this story?
Kiyosaki has taken on a more sage-like voice in this book. He pays homage to the brilliant Bucky Fuller by including Bucky's teachings I have a *way* deeper appreciation for what it was that Bucky has contributed to each of us.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Read this book, or suffer the consequences of ignoring it.
Any additional comments?
Kiyosaki does an amazing job presenting not only great education, as usual, but deep and profound wisdom with the help of his long-time friend Bucky Fuller. As Kiyosaki has worked tirelessly to expand his own personal horizons, he's so generously enabled us to be along for the ride. I'm really excited about the impact this is already having on my thinking around business and money.

Like many rich dad poor dad has had a greater influence on my life and thinking than any other book but some of his spin off books have perhaps gone over the same ground a little to much. This book however is totally relevant, by far the best most succinct description of the why the financial system is in the state it is in and how best to profit in this mess.

What would have made Second Chance better?
More detail on what he thinks will cause the next recession/depression and an analysis on why it occurs.
Has Second Chance put you off other books in this genre?
Not of the Genre, just his line of books.
What three words best describe Tim Wheeler’s voice?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
disappointment, I was hoping that he would do explanation of Peter Schiff.
Any additional comments?
I own most of his books. I already have the mind set and behaviour he teaches prior to reading all his books. If your financially illiterate, it’s enough to read his first book Rich Dad Poor Dad (Unabridged)

I got really agitated with all the "Q" and "A" references in this book, but determination to finish every book I purchase kicked in and actually liked it aside from that!
I am profoundly amazed at how poor the editorial advice given to the author must have been.
An entire volume of Q... A... Q...A !!!!
Truly a horrid structure for conveying some words of financial insight.
The author should be ashamed, the editor should never be given work again.
