In alternating chapters, Kiyosaki (Rich Dad Poor Dad) and Trump share experiences as businessmen and advise prospective entrepreneurs—a structure that is reflected in the co-narration of John Dossett, who reads Kiyosaki chapters, and Skipp Sudduth, who handles those of the Donald. Even without Sudduth’s forceful narration—at times he practically shouts—it’s easy to identify Trump’s sections by his prose, which is sprinkled liberally with superlatives, e.g., “fabulous,” as well as insults, e.g., “incompetent professionals.” Dossett’s narration of Kiyosaki’s chapters is naturally less aggressive; he sounds as if he’s telling a story rather than telling listeners what to do. This co-narration creates an interesting dynamic—a necessity as the two authors are so different tonally—but also can be jarring for listeners. A Plata Publishing hardcover. (Oct.)
