Review: Rich Dad Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! by Robert T. Kiyosaki

Synopsis: Rich Dad Poor Dad, the #1 Personal Finance book of all time, tells the story of Robert Kiyosaki and his two dads—his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad—and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you. (from the online description)

Review: This book was highly recommended to me as an exceptional book to learn about personal finances and how to make money. I was disappointed. While Kiyosaki has a few good ideas, the majority of the book was fluff, and quite repetitive. He encouraged taking advantage of people's ignorance and misery and extolled the pursuit of money as a game, even when it hurt others. In the end, I took almost nothing away from the book, except of few bits of advice and a full loathing for anyone who uses others to gain something as trite as money. Kiyosaki gave the reader very little for the money spent on his book - another example of how to make money, I guess.
