I know there are lots of avid readers on Biggerpockets; I'm wondering if any of you have read "Evicted" by Matthew Desmond? It's a Pulitzer-prize winning book by a Harvard sociologist about low income renters in Milwaukee.The writer lived among his subjects to write the book (but of course he sees it through the lens of a sociologist, not a business-person).
I have to admit I expected it to be even more harsh towards landlords than it was. But I'm finding it fascinating, and heart-breaking. And it's giving me quite an education. Any more seasoned landlords read this? What was your reaction to it? If you haven't, I highly recommend it.
@Kristalyn Salters-Pedneault I'm going to have to pick up the book at my library! Sounds like it is worth the read. Also, unrelated, you are the first person I have ever come across with my name! :)
When I saw your name I was stunned; I have also never met another Krystallin :) !
