Eric is a former management consultant to Fortune 500 financial service firms. Over the past two decades, he has successfully invested in securities as well as in real estate and has started and managed several businesses. He holds a bachelor's degree in economics at Yale and an M.B.A. at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
An accomplished freelance personal finance writer, Eric is the author of five other national best-sellers in the...For Dummies series: Home Buying (co-author), Personal Finance, Investing, Mutual Funds, and Taxes (co-author). His work has been featured and praised in hundreds of national and local publications, including Newsweek, Kiplinger's, The Wall Street Journal, Money, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and on NBC's Today Show, PBS's Nightly Business Report, CNN, The Oprah Winfrey Show, ABC, CNBC, Bloomberg Business Radio, CBS National Radio, and National Public Radio.
Eric has counseled thousands of clients on a variety of personal finance, investment, real estate, and mortgage quandaries and questions. In addition to maintaining a financial counseling practice, he is a popular speaker on important personal finance topics.

Ray Brown, co-author of the national best-seller Home Buying For Dummies, is a veteran real estate broker with more than two decades of hands-on experience. A former vice president and manager for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Company and McGuire Real Estate, and founder of his own real estate firm, the Raymond Brown Company, Ray is currently a writer, radio talk show host, and public speaker on residential real estate topics.
Ray believes that most people are pretty darn smart. When they have problems, it's usually because they don't know the right questions to ask to get the information they need to make good decisions. This book completes Ray's residential real estate trilogy and fulfills his dream of helping folks find their way through the often mystifying process of buying, financing, and selling their homes.
On his way to becoming a real estate guru, Ray worked as the real estate analyst for KGO-TV (ABC's affiliate in San Francisco), a syndicated real estate columnist for The San Francisco Examiner, and he hosts a weekly radio program, Ray Brown on Real Estate, for KNBR.

Do not purhcase this Nookbook. I could not get past page 53. I called B&N Digital Support numerous times. After much troubleshooting, I finally said enough is enough and requested a refund. The pages I did get to ready I really enjoyed and thought had very useful information. May try the updated version next although waiting for other people to try it first.

I am sure I would find this book to be very helpful if I could read it. Every time I try to open it and read it, it freezes my Nook. Sometimes I can get a few pages in, and sometimes it will not even open the book. All of my other eBooks read wonderfully on the Nook, so I feel confident that this is an isolated incident related to how this book if formatted for electronic reading. Buy the book in traditional print form and save yourself some trouble.

This eBook had an error that did not allow me to get past something like page 63. Two months later, it still doesn't work.

Like everyone else says, you can't get past 50 some odd pages. Looks like they don't care to actually fix the problem as it has been like this for years!!! Is this typical B&N??

Cannot read the Appendix documents - the writer warns you to get an Inspection and gives a Sample what to look for - but as of 3/26/2012 cannot enlarge enough to read them. My Nooks finger-zoom function works well but not on these documents.

This book looks amazing. I made it to about 50 pages in before the nook book stopped working entirely, like many of the other reviewers here. For some reason they still keep selling it. I'm definitely going to buy the book (SOMEWHERE ELSE) in print form, because what little I read seems great. DO NOT BUY THE NOOK VERSION.
