  • House Investor's Manual, By Lambert Munz
    YOU HAVE LISTENED TO EVERYONE ELSE - IT IS TIME TO LISTEN TO A PROPERTY MANAGER. Most new investors contact the property manager last inside of the first thing before buying an investment.

  • The Courage to Be Rich, By Mark O. Haroldsen
    There are only a small handful of books that I can highly recommend to someone who wants to be successful in real estate investing, and "The Courage to Be Rich" is one of my top choices. It is one of the books I enjoy reading again and again.

    In the book, Mark O. Haroldsen instills the concept of IGDS (I'm going to die someday), driving home the fact that we all are born with a finite number of days in our lives. What we do with those days and the sooner we get started are up to us. The sooner we face that fact and summon up the courage to go after success, the better. Mark introduces in easy to understand terms, what it takes to become a real estate investor and how residential real estate investing is an excellent vehicle toward riches. He tells us about fixer uppers (yuks) and how "Yuks create big bucks".

    Although I first read this book in the 80's, I still enjoy it and recommend it if you are thinking of getting into the real estate investing market.

  • The Go Getter, by Peter B. Kyne
    The Go Getter by Peter B. Kyne was first introduced to me as an audio tape from Robert Allen's "Challenge" seminar in 1987. It was fantastic motivation that I still treasure. The story of the blue vase has motivated me and encouraged me in business and life to never give up. It has inspired me to accomplish what some consider impossible tasks with the words "it shall be done" ingrained in my mind.
    About two years ago, my wife found it on Amazon.com and gave it to me for Christmas. Now I share the book and the tape with my children who I hope find it as valuable as I have. - John Nuzzolese, TheLPA.com

  • Live Your Dreams, By Les Brown
    Les Brown is one of the most successful of the current crop of "motivational speakers," whose self-appointed mission is to convince corporate executives and others they can accomplish unlimited wonders if they only believe they can. -

Les Brown's "Live your Dreams" gives you that much needed boost in moral support. - John Nuzzolese, President of The Landlord Protection Agency.
