While Peter's book is not a "hear's how to make money" tutorial, if you want to be successful in the P2P arena you need to "know the ins and outs", "the devil's in the details", "throw in your own cliche here". Follow his work and you will know more about P2P lending, period. Peter is incredibly active in the community of P2P lending. He regularly reposts and/or responds to my own blog posts on ProsperToRetire.com, and even helped publicize one of my P2P lending tools BidCopy at NumberWhale.com.
It sounds like I'm just tossing around URL's, but it's to show that Peter is very active and heavily involved. He knows what's going on in the P2P market. When Prosper recently made a controversial blog post about changing the data they would make publicly available to researchers/developers (changing XML to CSV), he and I were immediately emailing each other and Prosper for answers. Albeit, Peter demands a response from Prosper better than I :)
Word has it he will be publishing a similar Prosper Story in 2013 which I look forward to reading as well. He writes in an easy-to-understand language which can be challenging for the writer when you're speaking of percentages, investments, returns, etc. Read his book, read his blog ...then read my blog :) ..., have fun investing, make money. 'Nuff Said
Along with the free newsblog he supports (LendAcademy.com), he also shows his personal returns, with full transparency, which is quite rare in any financial industry. Indeed a hero, and the go to person in the financial space.
A must read for anyone interested in this new space, and finding out a bit more about how it came to be.
Also, from a borrower, you can request loans for just about anything - not just debt consolidation, or small business loans, etc.
One guy requested a loan, so he could finish his private helicopter license courses.
If you do live in the US, however, and are looking for another form of income in a form that might just get someone the business or personal funding they need, this book is a great place to look. It is easy and pleasurable to read and gives great insight into where the world's financial market may head if the banks don't lift their game.
