The Two Worst Books Ever

At this point in my life, I’ve read 160 books. Here are the worst two:

1. Rich Dad, Poor Dad, by Robert Kiyosaki

    Snake oil salesman who wrote a fiction book to profit off the poor. Charged $45,000 for seminars on how to be financially successful. Want to be financially successful? Don’t go to a class that costs $45,000. Robert writes a lot of generic financial advice that is true. The generic advice is all old, albeit useful, news you can get from any other finance book. The novel stuff is bad advice. Like many did before 2008, he believes that real estate values simple cannot go down. Read The Millionaire Next Door, the Automatic Millionaire, and A Random Walk Down Wall Street. You will learn lessons that Robert does not have the humility to teach.

2. The Trial, by Franz Kafka

    Did not think he could top The Metamorphosis in terms of nonsensical garbage. Well guess what, he did. Why is this guy a famous author? Stop using the term “Kafkaesque." Stop talking about this guy, he is the literal worst. Boring, pointless, garbage.
