This is a great beginners guide. It can't teach you interpersonal skills - you have to possess those in abundance to manage property - but it can and does tell you how to go about your day to day as a manager. I, of course, found passages where I thought, no I wouldn't do it that way, but I could still see the logic behind the suggestions. There were also passages where I thought, that's a better mouse trap than what I do. Even experienced property managers can learn a thing or two from this book.
