I want to prefer that for all.

There are also many investment groups out there that have too many fine prints on their terms meant to defraud their investors out of their money. I want to prefer that for all.

This book is SO well explained.

The information is very concise and informative. We have a studio apartment attached to our house that I hope to use for Airbnb. After listening to this book, I feel completely prepared to do it. We've used Airbnb quite a bit as travelers and I figured, having been a guest, I'd know enough about hosting too. NOPE! The author covers lots of information I wouldn't have considered from the hosting side. I think if you plan on using Airbnb (or any home-share for that matter) you need to listen to this book.
