25 Reviews
Two lives, together, then apart, then together again, as a brother and a sister discover the riches of life. Rich Brother, Rich Sister combines the inspirational true life stories of Robert Kiyosaki and his sister Emi into one book that will reaffirm your belief in the power of purpose, the importance of action, and the ability to overcome all obstacles in a quest for wealth, both financial and spiritual.

In 1962, the United States detonated a nuclear bomb ten miles off the coast of Christmas Island in the South Pacific. From that moment two people, born of the same parents, and with the same childhood experiences, found themselves on different life journeys to find truth, happiness, purpose, and ultimately financial success. Robert became a world-famous entrepreneur, author, and teacher of all things financial, and Emi a highly devout Buddhist nun, author, and teacher of all things spiritual.

This book will inspire you along your own life’s journey to find your own truth and purpose, your own path to prosperity—both financial and spiritual—all the riches of life that were meant for you...and us all.

About the author (2009)

Born and raised in Hawaii, Robert Kiyosaki is a fourth-generation Japanese-American. After graduating from college in New York, Robert joined the Marine Corps and served in Vietnam as an officer and helicopter gunship pilot. Following the war, Robert went to work in sales for Xerox Corporation and, in 1977, started a company that brought the first nylon and Velcro “surfer” wallets to market. He founded an international education company in 1985 that taught business and investing to tens of thousands of students throughout the world. In 1994 Robert sold his business and, through his investments, was able to retire at the age of forty-seven. During his short-lived retirement he wrote Rich Dad, Poor Dad, and co-authored Why We Want You to Be Rich with Donald Trump. He also writes a bi-weekly column, “Why the Rich Are Getting Richer” for Yahoo! Finance, and a monthly column, “Rich Returns” for Entrepreneur magazine.

Barbara Emi Kiyosaki is Robert’s sister. They grew up together in Hawaii with their parents Ralph and Marjorie and two other siblings, Jon and Beth. While Robert took the path of war during the Vietnam era, Emi took the path of peace, exploring alternative and spiritual journeys. Their paths crossed only intermittently after growing up together: Robert left for the United States Merchant Marine Academy, and a year later Emi left for the University of Hawaii. They took what appear to be entirely different paths. Emi raised one daughter, Erika; wanting to deepen her studies and practice in Tibetan Buddhism, Emi became a Buddhist nun when Erika was sixteen. Emi was ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 1985 and today is known more by her ordination name, Bhikshuni Tenzin Kacho. For six years, Tenzin was the Buddhist Chaplain at the United States Air Force Academy. She has a master’s of art degree in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan Language from Naropa University. She is the Assistant Spiritual Director and teacher at Thubten Dhargye Ling Buddhist Center in Long Beach, California, and visiting teacher at Thubten Shedrup Ling in Colorado Springs. She occasionally resides at Geden Choling Nunnery in northern India.
