It's far from "game over", but the game is changing...for the better. The unwary and under-prepared will be squeezed from the market - leaving educated, strategic investors to have their best decade yet.

I think the book is a great summary of an business that is often complicated by terms, legislation and process.
It's a good way to set up a system and road map to entering the property world (and even a good pocket guide to those already experienced).
There is just enough to set you off in the right direction.
The rest is down to you, don't blame the author, do your research and get involved

In a series of illuminating, often surprising experiments, MIT behavioral economist Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. Blending everyday experience with groundbreaking research, Ariely explains how expectations, emotions, social norms, and other invisible, seemingly illogical forces skew our reasoning abilities.

For more than two thousand years, The Art of War has stood as a cornerstone of Chinese culture, a lucid epigrammatic text that reveals as much about human psychology, politics, and economics as it does about battlefield strategy. The influence of Sun-Tzu's text has grown tremendously in the West in recent years, with military leaders, politicians, and corporate executives alike finding valuable insight in these ancient words.

quite intense and vocal choice does not help - recommended for true enthisiasts who wish to go deeper than the simplified versions by other authors of the teachings

In this tender, beautiful letter to his daughters, President Barack Obama has written a moving tribute to 13 groundbreaking Americans and the ideals that have shaped our nation. From the artistry of Georgia O'Keeffe, to the courage of Jackie Robinson, to the patriotism of George Washington, President Obama sees the traits of these heroes within his own children, and within all of America's children.

a very funny and enjoyable read. the voice starts off a little annoying (dont be put off thought) as the characters and story develops it actually turns out to be an inspired choice of voice owing the querky, and amusing storyline.
