Fair but not worth it

Not enough content. There are better books out there. Focus on trading and not buy to let

No nonsense UK property audiobook

I’ve listened to a few property audiobooks now and this is the best so far, at half of the time of other audiobooks it contains much more than others

Very informative

I found the book very informative as it covers both investment and development. It will also serve well as a quick reference guide to refer back to the the future.
