One of the cornerstones of Kiyosaki's own educational empire was another board game, the Cashflow Quadrant, around which whole communities of students have grown worldwide. If the process of memorizing a bunch of definitions turns you off, check out your local craigslist to find some folks playing financial board games. Many a player swears they have changed their lives.

Throughout "Unfair Advantage," Kiyosaki attempts to actually provide much of the financial education he thinks Americans need to move out of financial dependency and underachievement and into the ranks of the business owners and big-picture investors who pay lower tax rates and earn more while working less.

The book is chock-full of easy-to-digest educational tidbits readers of other "Rich Dad" books will recognize, like FAQs, pithy (if slightly hyperbolic) definitions and diagrams. Nothing about "Unfair Advantage" is rocket science, but it -- like the rest of the "Rich Dad" series -- will undoubtedly serve as an inspiration or reboot to many readers' efforts to take control of their money matters.
