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. This is a mistake. Check with the people in the trenches to check on the condition of the rental market, what you should buy and not buy. As a veteran Real Estate Investor, Broker, Developer, and Property Manager, choosing the right rental home for investments is critical. I see so many investors from other areas buy in unfamiliar communities without doing their homework..

You have to be a cold hearted SOB to be a successful landlord. Find out what happens to a naïve, kind hearted couple that entered this shark den with all the right intentions, only to be bloodied and battered by manipulative, devious tenants. Written in a witty, comical tone, the book provides lots of practical, useful advice for people interested in entering this business. However, plenty of warnings are given, as are outright pleas for you to “stay away”. Fully a quarter of the text is devoted to “laugh out loud”, true horror stories that make for a great read, regardless of your interest in rental property.

With Creating Wealth, Robert Allen made a tremendous impact on my life because it reinforced my belief that I can do it. The book is charged with positivity and packed with great ideas.

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.

Trump: The Art of the Deal
"I like thinking big. I always have. To me it’s very simple: If you’re going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big." -Donald J. Trump
Here is Trump in action—how he runs his organization and how he runs his life—as he meets the people he needs to meet, chats with family and friends, clashes with enemies, and challenges conventional thinking. But even a maverick plays by rules, and Trump has formulated time-tested guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest accomplishments; he shatters myths; he names names, spells out the zeros, and fully reveals the deal-maker’s art. And throughout, Trump talks—really talks—about how he does it. Trump: The Art of the Deal is an unguarded look at the mind of a brilliant entrepreneur—the ultimate read for anyone interested in the man behind the spotlight.

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. -
I first saw Les Brown on PBS television while he was giving a motivational seminar. I couldn't change the channel. He was so good. So motivating and fun to listen to, I just had to hear every word he had to say.
When I saw his book, "Live your Dreams" in the bookstore, I knew I had to buy it. It was a great investment.
The book is entertaining, honest, extremely enlightening and of course, motivational. I enjoy this book so much that I can't recommend it enough. Anyone who wants to go against the odds and be successful in life will need the right motivation and attitude. Les Brown's "Live your Dreams" gives you that much needed boost in moral support. - John Nuzzolese, President of The Landlord Protection Agency.
