This book is a must read if you:
-Are in college and want to matriculate into the real estate industry after graduation. (read this now, so you can get the right internships, take the right courses, and know if real estate is something you'll even want to do or even can do)
-Are recently out of college, and want to know what path to take. The industry is specialized, so if you want to be an analyst vs a broker, you need to make sure you set your path right from the start. Breaking across specialization barriers is tough.
-Are in the industry already, and want to move up the ladder onto the next thing.
-Are applying to MBA schools: you should know the paths in the industry, so your essays dont make you sound like you have not put thought into the MBA process.
About me: I am a real estate analysis at a private firm with investments in $2B in real estate. I used this book to help write my MBA applications to top-7 MBA programs.
