A great book overall.

The author does a great job about summarizing a lot of the caveats you need to pay attention to before investing and he doesn't get too technical, where it makes it difficult to plow through the book.

While it has kind of a cheesy title, this book actually does offer some great advice on making money in the real estate world. It's interesting to read how the author built his real estate portfolio in a very short period of time. Lots of good advice on topics ranging from tenants to property management to getting mortgages and more.
