Very general, not enough substance
on February 26, 2013
This book is very short and generalist in it's content. Steve does not give any specific advice rather feeds the reader with some high level details on how to plan financial future. Also, I don't think he is truthful in his statement that you can today do exactly what people have done during one of the greatest property bull markets in Australia that we had from 1999 to 2005.
Just consider that Steve is not investing his own money in Australia, but instead purchased the whole bunch of real estate in US.
Due to general nature of the advice and the length of the book I give it two stars overall. For most property investors I would recommend to avoid it - if you are a beginner there is not enough information and if you already own a few properties then you already know more than is said in this book.
The only sound advice that is given in this book and something that you can read here for free is to have a plan for your property. Know what your objectives are and how much money you will need to feel financially secure. Make sure that you plan is long term (5-10 years to reach objectives) and realistic.
