The guy who wrote that is of course, Robert G. Allen. That was one of the first real estate books I ever read–and boy it sure opened MY eyes.
For beginners, he wrote another book, which I liked even better, called “The Challenge”. It’s quite autobiographical. He issued a Challenge, that he could take someone broke and unemployed, straight out of the Unemployment line, train that person, and in 90 days that person will have $5,000 cash in the bank from real estate, never to walk into an unemployment line again. I’ve never seen another book like it (outside the $100+ home study courxes) that shows so much of the nuts-and-bolts of how to get started in real estate. It’s still my all-time favorite real estate book.
The book is out of print now–but some libraries have it–and they do interlibrary loans. Used bookstores also will often have it–or can conduct a search for a used copy for sale for you. I hope some day it’s in print again.
Hope this helps,
