Sick Of Not Having Money? Aug 25, 2008
Great read for those not familiar with her husband, Robert, who wrote Rich Dad, Poor Dad. It is filled with colorful personal stories about Kim and Robert prior to becoming successful. Also, she includes conversations she had with friends about money and success.
Overall, it flows well, is motivational and includes a few strategies for success. A few more concrete steps for becoming wealthy would have made it better.

Not worth the return shipping cost. Jun 14, 2008
Rich Woman wasn't very helpful. I found myself getting bored reading through the stories of Kim and her friends reminiscing. It seemed like Kim couldn't decide whether to write an autobiography or an investment book, and ended up doing both badly.
The book was extremely repetitive, and not in a good way. Kim was so busy trying to promote her Rich Dad products, the advertised purpose of the book was lost, and the plugs were very annoying.
There was also no thought continuity through out the book. I felt like I was reading a term paper and there was a word count to be meet. There were paragraphs that served no purpose. They didn't bring a point home, or shed any light on what was being discussed.
Ladies save your money and pass on this one.
LAME Apr 16, 2008
I understand the title is "Rich WOMAN" and that it is geared towards a female audience, obviously, but some of the examples were a little off target for me. I am a 24 year old who has always supported myself, looking for something that would help me better my financial intelligence and understanding. However, this book considered "women who's dream husbands divorced them". What? THAT is not why women should be fully financially literate, just in case their "plan" to marry a rich guy falls through. I think bringing the fact that women live longer then men is completely irrelevant to FINANCE. If you picked up a finance book geared toward men (what I mean is a book not SPECIFICALLY geared toward women) there is none of the nonsense. I wanted a female perspective, but was definitely not expecting or appreciating what I got. Read "Cashflow Quadrant" by Robert Kiyosaki- best one in the series. Now they are just getting out of control.
Disappointed Mar 15, 2008
It's all "conversations". I wish I could learn something from it. I love reading, but all I have in conclusion for this book is tedious, waste of time and money. There are bunch of great books about investment and especially for women. Rich Woman is not the one.
WASTE OF TIME Feb 20, 2008
This book is nothing more than advertisement for her husband's accomplishments. She should have titled it "Rich Woman: Marry an accomplished man and then make money by helping him make more money." She does not appear to have any ideas of her own. The book is FULL of typos that a simple proofread should have caught. I do NOT recommend wasting money or time on this book. I am very tolerant of things I read, but this one is absolutely infuriating.
