- What are your favorite books/authors on real estate, running a business, working with others, or just investing in general? I've read the Bigger Pockets beginner's guide, Rich Dad Poor Dad, and a couple books by Peter Lynch. I'm new to real estate but I thoroughly enjoy learning through reading. Let me know what books you feel have taught you the most.
Two books I really enjoyed were Business of the 21st century by Robert Kiyosaki and Art of the Start by Guy Kawasaki. Keep up the reading!
"The 4-Hour Work Week" by Timothy Ferriss
is a favorite of my.
The Richest Man in Babylon
Think and Grow Rich
They are oldies but goodies.
I've probably read close to 30 this year. Here are a few of my favorites:
Think and Grow Rich
The E-Myth Revisited
Millionaire Real Estate Investor
Start with Why
The Power of Habit
Thank you all for your recommendations!
Hi @Account Closed ,
Check out The Real Book of Real Estate by Robert Kiyosaki. This is a really great overview of all the major touch points in RE investing. Experts in accounting, law, property management, creative financing, negotiating, analyzing, design, etc. all discuss their points of view clearly and organized. When I read this I re-read it and ended up taking about 40 pages of notes! So much good info.
Another recent favorite is The ABC's of Real Estate Investing by Ken McElroy. This book opened my eyes to the world of large multi-family apartment investing. It is just incredible, and Ken does a great job of clearly explaining all major points.
If you're interested in commercial multifamily, check out Michael Reinhard's Commercial Mortgages 101 .
How to Win Friends and Influence People is one of my favorites on building relationships and working with people.
hey @Account Closed here are some good choices:
Hope that helps!
"The Millionaire Real Estate Investor" is a must read!
And of course, "Rich Dad, Poor Dad"!
