save your five bucks

This is an entertaining bit of fluff. The real purpose is to market the author's mentoring program. I felt like it lacked depth and value, however it was fun to listen to.

selling classes

What disappointed you about Real Estate Investing Gone Bad?

The author is way too busy selling his real estate classes while talking instead of sticking with topic.

Has Real Estate Investing Gone Bad turned you off from other books in this genre?

made we a little wary.

Not very good

Hated I even wasted a credit on it. Very short. The book is probably a very short read. Not much information. Just tells some stories that may or may not be true

Good to know as I begin my journey.

I am a rookie investor in every sense of the word. I've been to seminars, paid for local "training" events and read many books and watched tons of YouTube videos from others in the business. Well, I am serious about making it in this industry and something about Mr. Pustejosky's story hit hard and it really caught my interest. I took many valuable notes from reading this book on subjects that none of the other materials and seminars ever touched on. So I'm treating this as a "pocket bible" of sorts to help me watch my back and be aware of red flags that will pop up as I begin my career as an investor.

Every Real Estate Investor Should Get this Book

What made the experience of listening to Real Estate Investing Gone Bad the most enjoyable?

The stories were very entertaining, concise and extremely educational. The voice of the author himself really brought them to life.

What does Phil Pustejovsky bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Since the narrator is the author, his emphasis on certain words helps better understand the intent of the author. I read the Kindle version when it first came out and the audio version was even better for me because his reading helped understand what he wanted the reader to focus on that much more.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Every real estate investor need to get this book. That was my first, and I guess "extreme", reaction after completing it.

Any additional comments?

Thank you so much Phil for taking the time to compile the stories and then putting a book together around them. It will save my thousands over my real estate career.
