Full review

This was a really good book on the topic of real estate investing.

It covers why 2-4 unit rentals are ideal because of tax & investment reasons. Since reading this book I have learned that in Iowa (where I live) 2 units is the max any more that & it's tax at the commercial rate!

In this book John T. Reed was mentioned that was the 1st time I had ever heard of Mr. Reed before. I have bought the Reed John T. Reed's Complete Real Estate Investment Bundle both are very good reads.

Buy & hold forever is another good read
