This is not one of those garbage "no money down" real estate books, this book gives you valid and useful tips to help you build wealth in real estate, not pie in the sky nonsense. After reading this book I went out and did a deal (flip)and it went reasonably well. I'll get better with experience but this book gives you the basics to get started. Avoid all the no money, no credit books and read this one.

Format: Hardcover
I was very disappointed at the shallow nature of this volume. Several chapters in I realized that this was just another way for Trump to generate a few more royalty dollars. This whole volume can be summarized in a few general maxims: Chapters 1-3 Think like an entrepreneur... meaning take risks. Chapters 4-5 Do your OWN homework ... meaning don't rely on generally accepted rules. Chapters 6-10 Come up with the NEXT great idea ..... meaning think outside the box don't just follow the herd. The only reason I did not give this book a 1 star * is that the last four chapters DO contain some valuable information and charts, formulas and methods that DO go beyond just common sense or obvious advice like where's the market headed? (Chapter 6). In particular it was not until the final chapter (14) How to Value Properties did I actualy take my pen and paper out and start to take some notes. A far better read is Confesssions of a Real Estate Entrepreneur. Save your Time. Use your Common Sense and Spend your $22 bucks to buy another book.

Eldred does it again, showing that he not only knows how to build assets and build cash flow, he also knows how to utilize the Trump name (and Mr. Trump writing a very good foreword). Let's face it, real estate is the best industry out there for growing your money. Why? According to the book, because population is increasing and they don't make land anymore... So increase demand and limited supply.

Format: Hardcover
I do love to read a lot of the books from Trump, and this one is similar to the others in terms of format. It's very vague at times, and the author tries to sell your more books in the script. I'm starting to realize any material offered by Trump is going to have at least 10 books referenced that are highly recommended for you to read once you complete the current one you are reading.

I was expecting to read about all the steps involved with purchasing, financing, marketing, upgrading and managing real estate in this book. I suppose I assumed this would be like a dummy's guide to real estate investing, but it was a little more for the novice investor--at least it was more advanced than the 101 title implies, especially in the final chapter. I was let down in some areas, but the last few chapters about managing and valuating property are phenomenal.

I scaled down the rating due to all the publicity of additional reading material but I did think the final chapter on valuing properties was incredible so I gave it 3 stars. Had it been a little more in depth about financing real estate and excluded all the promoting of other books, then I could've given it 5 stars.

Format: Hardcover
After reading Donald Trump's books "The art of the Deal" and the "Art of the Comeback" I picked this book up. It looked more like a text book or how-to so I was excited to dive in after reading his biographical style previous books. It sat on my shelf for a week with that big Trump name sparkling in gold and his face on the cover. I finally got around to reading it and realized he wasn't the author but only had written the foreword. Robert Kiyosaki slaps his name on purple and black books in a similar way as Trump but I think he has been a bit more successful at this branding. I find this practice somewhat annoying but I have to hand it to both of them at getting the most out of their brands. I hope to one day have other people write books and slap my name on the cover to sell more copies.

So, after ten minutes of feeling tricked by Trump I flipped through and decided to give Gary W. Eldred a shot. He didn't disappoint in fact he did a fantastic job. As I read more and more real estate books this one surely did have a lot of overlap, but it did excel at making me think about re-purposing houses in a way that would make them more profitable. His thoughts on market segments in Chapter 7 were new to me, and will help me make money in the future. I'm especially referring to the part about college students and seniors. I see these as two rapidly expanding segments and so do the authors.

Also I've been guilty of focusing solely on price and not paying attention to some of the other deal points like available financing included in Real Estate deals so this was a good reminder. Using the Comparative Sales, Cost Approach, and Income approach is nothing I have not seen before but using them all together to create an Estimated market value is a logical extension.

In the end this book made me smarter, and isn't that what all books are designed to do? I'm going to keep picking up Trump University books even if they arn't actually written by Donald himself.
