    I thought the book was full of good information, and food for thought. My wife are 5 or so years away from me retiring from my surgical practice. We thought RE may be the next best retirement profession. I look forward to reading more and getting involved with Dr. Emmett

  • Absolute Must

    If you're a beginner Real Estate Investor this book is an absolute must have! A thorough, yet short and sweet, guide. Absolutely loved it!
  • Great guide!

    By Johnryancantu
    This guide is a great way to gain some general knowledge in real estate investing, especially for the beginner. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because there were A LOT of misspelled words and typos. The author apparently doesn't know how to use "then/than." While this didn't take away any of the important content from the book, it was a little annoying reading a book with so many incorrect spellings and grammar.
  • Great for beginners!!

    By Noshortgame1

  • Great Read

    By AbsoluteQ
    This is probably the most informative book i’ve read as a beginner real estate investor, it simply breaks down and outlines the fundmental concepts of real estate investing and defines it in the most digestable way for beginners.
  • Real Estate investing 101

    By Katiekailykierstyn
    Great book that explains some basics and helps clearly understand what you are getting into with Real Estate investing. Some of the subjects could go deeper... But then that would be Investing 102, wouldn't it? Easy to read and I will keep it close as a reference guide!
  • Good overview

    By Anthony navin
    Good overview to open your mind to the real estate investing world, I did get annoyed about how much it would defer to its website for more information. It seemed like they made this book more as a marketing tool
