    Too Many Lists, Not Enough Content

    I recently read Lucier's book on Real Estate options, and was kind of disappointed. I mean he explained what Real Estate Options were, and how to make sure that you find the right deal, but he didn't go into the inner workings of the deal, and barely touched on how to sell the option, which is what the book is supposed to be about! I got tired of the numerous lists, and sample forms which seemed to just take up space. Many of the same points were repeated several times. Good info on how to CYOA in deals, but thats about it.
