What Book(s) changed your views

4 Replies

I want to know what book or books that aren't commonly talked about helped change how you view investing, or real estate. I started reading the Rich Dad series before I got started, but when I read What Every Real Estate Investor Needs to Know about Cash Flow... And 36 other Key Financial Measures it helped me see there wasn't some secret formula or hard calculations going on to get the deals it was just math and helped remove emotion from the investing side. There have been many more that have helped me narrow my focus and ones that have also helped me open my eyes and see more possibilities. 

Interested to hear what book(s) helped change your views.

Hi Chris, 

My Top 3: 

Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! -Robert Kiyosaki

Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, Repeat : The BRRRR Rental Property Investment Strategy Made Simple -David M Greene

Long Distance Real Estate Investing: How to Buy, Rehab, and Manage Out of State Rental Properties - David M Greene


@Antoine Martel I will have to check out the What the rich teach their kids about money one. I have read the rich kid smart kid one while the kiddo is growing up. And I really like the Long Distance Real estate investing book by David Greene, I thought it did a great job at explaining systems for rentals, and though at the time I read it didn't do out-of-state investing it allowed me to really see some holes in my business.
