I almost didn't buy this audio book because of some of the reviews saying the narration wasn't edited or was poorly done. I think the author has updated/edited the narration since then because I didn't have any of the issues mentioned. Try the sample chapter if you're still unsure.
Lots of great advice and I've had a rental for 3 years now; I never would have had time to read this book so glad the audio version was available.

Very informative read/listen (I bought the Kindle edition too) for new investors and people doing initial research into the opportunity of rental property investing. There's countless plugs for their Bigger Pockets website but you should have already expected that.
I was very disappointed in the quality of the audiobook since it contains things like the narrator going "ugh let me start over" as he reread a mistakenly spoken sentence, or listening to him lick his lips throughout the book. Why not record those sections without the mistake, or hire a professional narrator?
Overall I recommend reading or listening to this book for the quality of the information if you're new to the game.

The advice is really useful, but the book is let down by the author taking each and every available opportunity to plug his website.
I honestly don't think there's even five minutes between one mention of his site and another, and there's plenty of times when the website gets plugged sentence after sentence. It got pretty tiring.
The reader isn't professional, and it showed. Although he was passionate about the subject ,he has some kind of feint lisp on some letters that I found frustrating to listen to, and his voice goes a bit odd at times, as though he's desperate for a drink and wasn't allowed anything. Minor annoyances, but they become very noticeable after a few hours.
He forgot to edit one section mid way through the reading and you can hear him fluff his lines and read then reread them a few times - which I found quite distracting.
Overall, a good book let down by the constant need to crowbar in adverts for the author's website, and some rudimentary problems with the recording of the book.

What did you like most about The Book on Rental Property Investing?
Great content. Good to be reminded of what works and also get some good hands-on links to other content that helps in RE investing.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Brandon's non edited remarks were quite funny. There aren't a ton, but the fact that they're in their full stop doesn't look great at all. It's just repetition of lines or him saying "let me try that again" and saying the same line in a different tone. Nothing you can't listen around, but surprising to see given BP are usually pretty onto it.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Nope. Just informative.
