Investing books can become hopelessly outdated by the time they hit the bookstores, so you are going to have to develop a wider range of resources than a coupla books. The exception is timeless classics, like Lonnie Scruggs’ “Taking the Mystery out of Money,” which is available on this site.
To learn more about other books, I go to Amazon.com & read the synopsis as well as all the reviews. If it sounds of further interest I either order it used on that site or get it via the library. If a particular book isn’t in your library, the folks there can probably order it through their system.
The Archives on this site are an invaluable FREE resource, & I cannot emphasize too strongly how important it is to network w/investors. You may have an active local REI group. If not, there are always seminars to attend, but make the most of your educational experience by socializing before, during & after the official program.
I’ve been recommending for some time that newbies consider investing in mobile homes to learn the ropes & make $$$ while gaining experience. You can make a lot of mistakes & still make $$$ in MHs. There is an EXCELLENT MH & Land Boot Camp (info on this site) in Asheville in August. I think there is still an Early Bird price, though it expires soon. I go every year because I figure I can’t afford to NOT go.
There is a MH Chat on this site every Wed @ 9 pm ET. Lots of the folks who participate in that are Boot Camp alumni, so you could join us later this week & get any questions answered. Good luck!
