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 Kiyosaki (Venerable Tenzin Kacho) into a book that will reaffirm your belief in the power of purpose, the importance of action, and the ability to overcome obstacles in a quest for a rich life.
In 1962, the United States detonated an atomic bomb ten miles off the coast of Christmas Island in the South Pacific. From that moment, two people, born of the same parents into the same household with the same childhood experiences, found themselves on distinctly different paths toward God, money, and happiness. Robert became a world-famous entrepreneur, author, and teacher of all things financial. Emi became a highly devout Buddhist nun, author, and teacher of all things spiritual.
Their lives took them from the Big Island of Hawaii to Cam Ranh Bay in Vietnam, to the hippie communes in Haight-Ashbury and to a monastery in India, to private encounters with Dr. R. Buckminster Fuller, to a seat at the foot of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and ultimately back together again. Robert faced death in war, and Emi faced it in the form of cancer. They took risks, made mistakes, learned life’s lessons, and found their own truths. They discovered the peace, the happiness, and the wealth that come through living the lives they were meant to live, the way they were meant to live them. This book will inspire you along your own life’s journey as you search for your own truths, purpose, and path to wealth—both financial and spiritual—to achieve all the riches of life that were meant for you...and for us all.

Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education.
Barbara Emi Kiyosaki is Robert's sister. While Robert took the path of war during the Vietnam era, Emi took the path of peace, exploring alternative and spiritual journeys. Emi raised on 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.
The latest in the entrepreneurial Rich Dad series is not focused solely on making money. The production alternates between a female and a male narrator to mirror the brother-and-sister relationship of the authors. The combined effect enhances the contrast between the spiritual and secular perspectives of the writing team. Jim Bond utilizes a semi-robotic, slightly nasal voice as he recounts the story of a businessman's search for God in the midst of earning and investing his money. Sandra Burr's delivery is gentler, soft in tone and moderate in pace, reflecting the years author Emi Kiyosaki spent as a Buddhist nun. The narration styles, alternating by chapter, give the listener the benefit of both perspectives towards material and spiritual aspects of life. M.R. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
