    Good motivational fluff but kindergarten when it comes to practical usage

    Graziosi is good at captivating his listeners and hooking them into spending money on things that they could get for almost free (compared to his prices) if they just step back and look around. Graziosi's books have a lot of motivational fluff but fall very short on how to actually accomplish real estate (RE) investing activities. This seems to be the general theme of some of the more popular "motivational" real estate investing gurus; they hype the motivational stuff and try to hook you into spending $thousands$ on their courses. Keeping in mind that less than 20% of the "students" actually succeed, this is NOT money well spent. Also keep in mind that it's "their way" or no way. Their way may not work for you; for example, you may not have the character or personality to negotiate with home owners who are in distress (bankruptcy, foreclosure, etc.). Some things are best left to professionals until you gain the experience to deal with it.

    Read Graziosi's and Kiyosaki's books, and others; they are good at motivating people because that's what these guys do best and that's where they made their original fortunes. (Actually, Graziosi made his fortune in the car sales business.) It's EASY to make a bigger fortune in RE when you start out with a fortune. But these guys have little or no clue what it's really like to start out in the business with little or no money simply because they have not experienced it. Granted, some people do start with nothing, but these two guys had plenty by the time they entered the real estate investing world.

    Next, read Robert Irwin, Terry Sprouse, Paul Hecht, Chip Cummings, Carey, Thomas Lucier, Matthew Martinez, Jay P. DiCima, Jack Cummings, Frankie Orlando, to learn how REAL PEOPLE have done it. A collection of one book from each of these authors is about $200, a mere fraction of the cost of Graziosi's or Kiyosaki's courses.

    I search the on-line booksellers for "real estate investing" or by the desired author, and then choose books that have been reviewed and have at least a four-star rating. Each of the 15 or so books I've purchased have at least some useful information and most of them are very good to excellent.

    On the other hand, I'm not very happy with the Graziosi/PMI RE investing course that cost over $11,000. Unforthnately, many courses purchased on-line have a lot of "bait-and-switch."

    You have to wonder why "gurus" who have made multi-millions buying and selling RE would bother to sell their schemes on the internet. Wouldn't they rather be busy making real money investing instead of putting up with the hassle of complaining students? Did the gurus really make millions practicing what they preach, or are they just selling a scheme?

    Visit www.accessonescams.com to learn more about real estate investing schemes and scams to avoid. And ALWAYS visit pissedconsumer.com, yelp.com and ripoffreport.com to see what others think. Be aware that ripoffreport.com has "whitewashed" the negative comments regarding one famous RE investing guru; however, the whitewash is very misleading.

    Dean Graziosi has a Good book, with good, current info.

    It reads very well, has really good info., especially for the newer person into the real estate investment arena. It's also good to keep current.(Which,I read it for.)
    I'll keep it in my collection as reference.
    The only thing I didn't really care for was the heavy sales pitch to buy more services.
    Otherwise, Highly recommended. Especially in this economy.

    Not very useful

    This guy is an infomercial guy that's how he makes money. He tries to promote a course in real estate and he charges way to much and he also has coaches, they are promoted with a company called pmi, they send you to a tax club who also charges way to much and will also make falsifying information and promise a tax break and when tax season comes get ready to be shocked you will be 8000.00 dollars in the whole for a tuition based class that pretty much shows you how to put in ad in the paper about selling a house (I sell homes below market value 90 to 95% of value.) duh!! When the tax club promises a break as well, you will pay them and your stuck with whole amount.Why do you need a tax club before you have customers? This is why people believe they are getting there money back. You can only get some of the money back if you make some money. The Tax Club is his biggest downfall.
