Good perspective on the American work/education system.
on December 27, 1999
The author confirms my own beliefs about American society, the education system, and what I should do for myself at this point in my life. I also believe that children should be taught the same principles, especially since getting bad grades in no way reflects the true worth of a person.
The American education system is fine for those who can make the grade and stick with their chosen field for life and be happy doing it. In reality, many people don't fit the mold, industries change, and people change. We are so brain washed into schooling ourselves as the only was to make a decent happy living. This and the over importance of grades separating winners and losers is bad for the individual and society, as Mr. Kiyosaki points out.
The bottom line is taking control of your own financial destiny. Education *is* an option, but not the *only* option.
The book is not intended to be a how to get rich book, but a point of view that readers will benefit from. Some of the points are obvious and could be more direct, however I recommend the book for those who feel that getting more education is the only route to go in this society, and for those who want to protect their self-esteem or their kid's.
