This book offers the new investor a good base knowledge to analyze whether real estate investing is right for them. The book offers many examples that bring the theories to life. Overall, this book is great if you want to get some great tips and strategies, but not too much depth, in all areas of real estate investing. However, without the serious depth, a follow up book focusing on your area of interest would certainly be waranted.

I am only 1/2 way through this and I enjoy how it spells out every aspect of Real Estate investing. It's not one of those....."Make a million in 2 weeks" kind of books. If you are serious about real estate investing I highly recommend this book.
