Excellent Primer for beginner

I'm new to real estate and I really enjoyed this book. It touches on many of the basics and digs in a little enough to give you a some understanding keeps it light enough so that it doesn't overwhelm you. I found it very easy to follow.

I found the areas of REO's of interest and also how aparments and office space get valued based on their current leases. Very interesting stuff if you are new to the field like I am. I wish there was a volume 2 to dig in deeper now! Otherwise I'd give it 5stars.

I also liked the narrator.
