Good book on it's own, poor book relative to others
on June 13, 2017
This book is simply not proofread enough. There's way too many examples of the author's slipping up on their diction or not stating key assumptions necessary to move forwards. Being misinformed is much worse than being uninformed, so you would be better off by just not reading some pages. They will also nonchalantly build off of an example that they last mentioned a chapter or two ago, so expect to do a lot more jumping around if you don't read the book like a novel.
Aside from that, there were a few formulas that I wish they would show the proofs for, so if you want to really get a grasp on everything, you'll have to pop online to see how they're derived. It's also obvious that this book was written before the '08 crisis by the way they describe risk, or how they explicitly state how real estate is one of the safest investments LOL! There's a lot of great stuff in here, but since the concepts are so trivial, there's 1000 other books you would be better off with
