Book 617: The Book on Rental Property Investing – Brandon Turner

There is so much information packed into this book that you definitely have to read it cover-to-cover and then go back and use it as a reference or re-read each section as you need them.

The writing is straight forward and he offers dozens of tips and tricks for those interested in, those new to, and even those veteran of using real estate as an investment option. Turner walked a fine line of saying this is the best way versus this is what was the best for me, but might not be the best for you.

When I saw the title I knew I wanted to read it as I’ve been reading everything I can recently on management, the workplace and professional development topics that interest me. The publisher, McGraw-Hill Professional, kindly provided a pre-publication copy* and it will be available the first week of 2016.

Obviously, the ultimate lessons of the book are a bit more complicated than the opening of this post, but it really does boil down to something as simple as we’re all the same, just reacting to ever-changing technology, economy and society. It was reassuring to see this with well backed global research and written in an approachable and readable way.
