Good book. I've Learned a lot from this book ...

This book talks about ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Roman civilizations. The author has a degree in archaeology and worked on a number of excavation sites. The book is very education but written in a dry tone. Some people have a knack for making history sound truly entertaining others are just educational without being fun to read, and this book falls into the second category.

Wonderful

The author shares the real world of real estate investing in a very accurate and entertaining format. I listened to the audio version and since the author was also the narrator, I got to hear the author's intent as well which made a big difference for me. He is a great speaker, actually, and kept my focus the whole time. You won't get bored, that's for sure!

Good book

Very informative for the beginner and breaks down each basic principle in a way that is easily understood.
Easy to understand for the most part. Like the idea of using negative emotion along with positive to reinforce your goals.

Great Motivational Book full of Innovative Ideas

As a real estate agent, I rarely recommend the investing books I read to my fellow agent friends. This one is different. This guy actually gets it right. I guess because he is a Realtor himself, he really does know what he is talking about. I'd recommend to anyone looking to get into real estate investing.

Loved this audiobook

I'm just getting started in real estate investing so I learned so much about it. The main thing I took away is now I know which direction in real estate I want to go. I was getting confused and lost with all the different advice I was getting out there. This book integrated everything for me so now I am confident as to where I am going with investing.
