  1. The dummy books are good a good place to start. The books we recommend are more for supplement and further growth. Hope this helps, and thanks for watching.

  2. I am a beginning investor, haven't even done a deal yet and you didn't mention anything about the real estate investing for dummies books. What do you think about these series of books?

  3. Hi there the other book you could add is Roberts kiyosaki's real book of real estate. I am just about to finish it and it is really good.

  4. Great list. I would add only one other book. That's Frank Gallinelli's "What Every Real Estate Investor Needs to Know About Cash Flow…and 36 Other Key Financial Measures" Gallinelli walks you through all the financial analysis tools with wit, humor, easy examples & terrific explanations. Even a novice will quickly understand cap rates, discounting, ROI and the other tools.

  5. "Rich Dad Poor Dad" was a great read, really changed my perspective on what it means to have a mindset of wealth, which is a whole lot more than just having a lot of money. And really turned me on to real estate investing as well!

  6. Great list! Have added to Favourites so I come back to it later. By the way, have you read Unfair Advantage by Robert Kiyosaki? I'm reading it and I think it's 10x better than the original Rich Dad Poor Dad, which is essential reading as well. It's also fresh off the presses, so it has a great section on what's going on today in the world economy.
