I decided to make a list of a few of my favorite real estate and/or investing books and to write a brief note of the main (I defined “main” as the most enlightening) thing I learned from it. Here are a few of the books I’ve read with the main idea I learned from each.
Do you have any favorite RE/investing/business books? What have you learned from them?

This taught me about the benefits of multifamily investing – something I hadn’t considered before reading the book.

THANK YOU to all of the aforementioned authors and especially thank you to BP for being the catalyst to my dreams.
I'm very surprised the "Intelligent Investor" isn't on this list?
But don't worry, you just missed adding the greatest investing book ever written. But that's okay. :)
Great list of books. I definitely thought The Book on Rental Property Investing and Set For Life were two key books that have motivated and taught me how to invest in real estate.
I'll give it a read! Taxes are difficult to grasp, so hopefully itll help me. Thank you!
I've actually never heard of that book. I'll check it out since you clearly find it valuable. Thank you!
