Ken's book is the best 'How To' book of any kind I have ever read. I highly recommend it.

The author talks about huge investments like apt buildings from cover to cover and how you should work with the numbers. The title is ¿ABC of Real Estate Investing¿ but should have been REAL ESTATE FOR PROS. The book is not realistic about how you should invest your money in Real Estate, the book is about how you ¿could¿ make money investing in $1 or $7 million dollar properties. The book is very discouraging for new Real Estate investors. I do not recommend!!!!

Being new to real estate investing, I was looking for a book that could step me through the process. This book did not do that. The book provides real life examples from the author himself (mainly about multi-unit apartment complexes), along with some general concepts you should be aware of. However, it stops short of providing explicit details that a single-family home investor needs (analysis of the different finance opportunities, etc.).
