Unfortunately, the book wasn't the introduction to commercial real estate that I had hoped. He didn't review the different property types (retail, industrial, hotel, parking, etc) and he only superficially reviewed how to evaluate the numbers. I also felt that the book involved way too much self-promotion.
I walked away feeling enthusiastic about commercial real estate but also feeling just as clueless about how to pick a property or prepare a lease.
Every chapter has more insight than a 2 year MBA program, after reading the book every lemon you see turns into a pig fat grape fruit, I successfully participated in a commercial real estate project, development of a 50,000 sq foot shopping mall, which felt like my 10 project thanks to the insights from the book.
I am now working to structure a 5 mall portfolio and the confidence was all from Doolf.
