Some problems are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them. - Laurence J. Peter

Ramit reviews Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki is a great book in my opinion. A friend recommended it to me, and I've gone on to recommend it to friends of mine, and I've given it as a gift.

Ramit doesn't feel quite the same way.

This book is like the kid you hated in high school, but he let you cheat off his test a couple of times so you kind of like him. I have grudging respect for this book, but every time someone raves about it, I usually just want to punch them in the face.

Update: reader Phil emails this review by real-estate investment author John Reed, exhaustively attacking Kiyosaki:
Rich Dad, Poor Dad contains much wrong advice, much bad advice, some dangerous advice, and virtually no good advice...Kiyosaki is a liar and a charlatan and a danger to his readers.
