I liked the overall message of this book and finished it quickly. The message about spending money sensibly on assets that can pay for themselves and fund your lifestyle, whilst saving diligently for the treats you want is timeless.
I felt a little patronised at the reflection sections at the end of each chapter.
Rich Dad Poor Dad certainly opened up my eyes and taught me how to stay poor/middle-class or become financially free (rich). I learned the better way to look at assets, liabilities, and money. As someone who is in middle class but wasn't sure of the way to become truly financially free, this book has helped me tremendously in forming the better perspective and examining myself. What Robert Kiyosaki teaches in this book are also very practical which I can apply to my life right now.
As always we Canadians have to read these great books on Finance & relate what we can to our own Country. It is packed full of great information with an analogy between two different lifestyles being the premises for understanding how the rich think differently than the middle class. Highly recommend read to all for this purpose.
