About the Author
Best known as the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad―the #1 personal finance book of all time―Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. He is an entrepreneur, educator, and investor who believes that each of us has the power to makes changes in our lives, take control of our financial future, and live the rich life we deserve. With perspectives on money and investing that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned an international reputation for straight talk, irreverence, and courage and has become a passionate and outspoken advocate for financial education. Robert's most recent books―Why the Rich Are Getting Richer and More Important Than Money―were published in the spring of 2017 to mark the 20th Anniversary of the 1997 release of Rich Dad Poor Dad. That book and its messages, viewed around the world as a classic in the personal finance arena, have stood the test of time. Why the Rich Are Getting Richer, released two decades after the international blockbuster bestseller Rich Dad Poor Dad, is positioned as Rich Dad Graduate School.
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.
