I read this book right after I dropped out of college 5 weeks before the end of the semester. It helped me understand why I felt so frustrated and disheartened by school. It also helped me see that I was going to school for the wrong reasons, and what some good alternatives might be. The insights on what other cultures' school systems are like was enlightening.
When you've been immersed in a system for your whole life, you tend not to see it objectively. Kiyosaki's unique perspective helped me stop beating myself up and understand how the US school system often promotes fear, competition, and actually discourages creativity and understanding.
