What did you love best about The Book on Investing In Real Estate with No (and Low) Money Down?
This is a great introductory Real Estate Investing book which gives you both a broad overview of the investing principles of this industry and some actual examples of real and hypothetical deals with their basic math.
I like the fact that its a recently published book, so you feel there is a certain relevance, in what Brandon is relaying, to todays market that you don't always feel when you read real estate books from 10+ years ago.
Also, I like the fact that the book is not just a long pep talk, trying to convince you that being a real estate investor is a smart thing to do. Which a bunch of real estate books seem to be and never get into many specifics. Which this book does.
The main thing that irritated me about the Audible version, however was how the book was read. I would have much preferred if the author would have read it himself. It seemed very robotic, like the reader didn't actually know what he was reading and was just reading the words to get through them (which was probably the case but it shouldn't come across that way to the listener). It was also very unnatural with the speed fluctuating from sentence to sentence in a way which a normal person would not actually speak in, if he were talking to you, which confused the communication. Most of the book was too slow and I had to listen at 1.25+ speed or it was too painful to listen to. Also, at certain parts it seemed like the readers voice got sore and raspy or he was straining to read, so all your attention went to that, instead of what he was saying.
Also, not a big deal but the pronunciation of some words were off like Realtor being pronounced "Realator" (something unfortunately Ive found to be mispronounced even among people in the industry). And comparable being pronounced "compare-able". Also several sentences were read over again, when the reader stumbled or maybe didn't like the way he read something and the multiple sentences were all left in.
So if you like to read books, as opposed to listen to them, I suggest you go that route.
Would you be willing to try another one of Maher Abiad’s performances?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was fine but a very technical book with references only to American financial products.
