If your plan is to dive deeper into real estate, you should pick up The ABCs of Real Estate Investing before you take the plunge. Author Ken McElroy is CEO of his own real estate firm and has 20 years of real estate experience. He has 4,300 units under construction and management and he has directly overseen management of over 20,000 units in eight states. He's not a high-flying Donald Trump; instead McElroy, who also gives lectures as part of the Rich Dad Advisors series, doles out the kind of sound, practical advice that most of us need when trying a new venture. McElroy dispels myths about real estate investing, encourages goal-setting and pulls all the best-practice advice he has gleaned over the years into one easy-to-navigate stockpile of information.
