My reason for purchasing this was very specific - I have been studying condo conversions for a few years and had great difficulty finding public case studies on them. I have been able to glean quite a bit on certain conversions from pulling public records/deeds/etc. and reverse-engineering the implementation side, but really began searching in earnest late last year and found this book, which appeared to dedicate a reasonable amount of space to documenting the strategy, numbers, and specific details of positioning and marketing condo conversions.
This book was totally worth it for me based on the contents of Chapters 13 and 14 (Condo Conversions, and One Good Investment is Worth A Lifetime of Labor). With the case studies and examples presented, I was able to update my own plan and approach, and also evaluate earlier decisions more critically.

One of Rosen's most interesting concepts is what he refers to as "infinity returns", whereby an investor's original equity investment can be recouped from a property without selling while at the same time retaining cash flows, both of which allow for future acquisitions of real estate. Every type of income-producing property is discussed, with varying strategies for each. But, by far the greatest gems in the book are the case studies. The author takes the reader through critical aspects of prior deals he's done, and provides real world insight on what to do - and what not to do. There's over forty years of commercial real estate experience packed in this book, and based on that alone it's worth the price.
I can't imagine a better book on the subject for non-professional investors in real estate income property. Mr. Rosen has written this great book in plain English and in a very logical manner that ordinary investors can understand (something hard to find in books written by professional's)
Before retiring, we were heavily invested in income real estate. As I think back about how we floundered around trying to get reliable advice, I can only imagine how much time and anguish we would would have saved had we had been able to read Ken's book beforehand.
As I said, "I can't imagine a better book on the subject." 5-stars PLUS.
