The Real Book of Real Estate is not a fluff book; it's not one of those "Hey-I-got-rich-at-the-right-time-through-dumb-luck-and-this-one-opportunity-that's-now-illegal-but-hey-I-think-you-can-get-rich-somehow-too!" books.
No; this book is for real. I've been in real estate investing for some time now and, unlike the gurus, this book provides a solid 18 hours of thought provoking, business savvy sense by some incredibly gifted, hard working and diligent men and women.
If you are in any way shape or form interested in real estate, and have read Rich Dad, Poor Dad or some of the other RDPD books, then this book is the natural progression if you're serious about being successful in real estate.
Also handy: some of the contributors in this book have their own specialties and have books as well (like Ken McElroy's ABCs of Real Estate).
Read it. Read it again. Then go buy your first property.
I'm an avid reader. I read a few hours everyday, whether its in print, on my kindle, or in my ears. That said, some of my favorite topics include business development and sales/negotiation strategy. Of the latter category, this book stands out with a few of the rare, quality, others ("No" and "Getting to Yes", which are good books and should be read). Because of the content, its positive message and the paradigm shift this book encourages me, the reader, to take, I feel like I have already become a more understanding, and more effective, negotiator/communicator. Now I'm eager to try some of the suggestions around town before taking them in to my business.
MUST READ, WELL WORTH THE PRICE, EXCELLENT VALUE, WILL RECOMMEND
