The pros: detailed look at what retiring early means, making you assess your lifestyle and income goals, and giving great indicators and metrics about what that will look like in practicality.
The interesting: He has profile, real life profiles of those who semi retired or retired early in real estate investing. There is nothing special about them except that they took action - this makes it relatable and real. This isn't a late night commericial selling dreams. Its practical and specific.
Notes - it's a long book. Thats not a bad thing since it means he is thorough, but prepare yourself to read it in parts so you can absorb the great ideas in parts. That's what is helping me as I have a short attention span. But if you want a reference, there is no book I would recommend more.
Cons - none! Keep reading!
Great job! A lot of hard work went into this book and it really shows through!
This book is packed with helpful strategies investors can use to grow their real estate portfolio. I especially valued his ideas on setting clear milestones on your F.I. journey and celebrating them along the way. I know from personal experience, it can be easy to get disheartened by the lack of "perceived" progress you're making. Breaking your big goal of financial freedom into bite-sized parts will help you stay the course even when times get tough.
Along with that, his idea of applying the "debt-snowball" to paying off your mortgages aggressively was also a great insight. Although leverage can amplify your returns over time, it also holds more risk. A lot of real estate investors fail to address this concern and I'm really glad he did. Great job Carson and I look forward to reading your future work!
Chad goes in debt into most of the topics that he covers in his book. He frequently sites real world examples of how different scenarios will play out and he continually loops his insights back into how different approaches will affect the end goal of early retirement. Peppered in between each chapter, Chad also injects case studies on specific profiles who are utilizing the methods that are described in the pages before. This mix of real world knowledge, and classroom type education is the perfect blend for me.
Chad really knows his stuff - He takes the time to set up the reader’s journey on the front end, so that expectations are clear. While going through the book, he frequently sites where we are in the journey and important knowledge and potential pitfalls to think about along the way.
Like all books, there are only so many pages that you can use to cram all of your knowledge into, and I think Chad falls victim to that very issue. Often times throughout the book, I wanted to know more about the very topic at hand. The good news is that Chad makes up for his brevity in some topics with recommended reading or other websites and blogs to check out. This issue is more nit-picky than anything and it certainly isn’t a hindrance to enjoying the material.
This book pushed me to start following Coach Carson more closely and since reading this book, I’ve found countless other excellent reads and helpful knowledge on his website, coachcarson.com. This book goes down as one of the best books I’ve read on the real estate investing life-cycle to date.
