Comments and Rating:
1)A word to the wise.
By A Customer on 29 Aug. 2001
I enjoyed reading this book, but reading the reviews on Amazon.com (the American sister web site to this one) I would urge anyone to also read the negative comments by some readers so as to help keep things in their right perspective. All I would say on the subject is view the over lavish praise with a slight degree of caution and skepticism. Some people love a good read, but whether those who praise this book up to the heavens will then go out and make his suggestions work is another matter. Now this book is a combination of some basic good advice regarding the property market, combined with self help and motivation. There are many guide books to riches on the market, most of them containing positive motivation and broad platitudes about becoming rich, without actually telling you how to do it!! I found Russ Whitney’s book a lot more forthcoming than most and some good tips for those who are struggling with their finances as to how to make money in the short and immediate term. For example Russ Whitney gives some excellent advice about letting rooms in one’s own house if you need to make regular money in the short and medium term. My only complaint about the book is that maybe he makes it seem just a little too easy, perhaps by skating a little too lightly over some of the necessary logistics in order to make things work. Overall though not a bad read. It’s certainly one I would recommend as a motivational book and a starter guide for someone considering some aspects of property as part of a new venture.
2)Good Book – a little vauge for beginners
By A Customer on 17 Feb. 2002
There is no question that Russ Whitney has made a personal fortune from Real Estate. He gives enough technical detail to convince me he knows what he is talking about and has actually DONE IT himself. Unlike other authors who write about property investment and have authored other books on how to be a expert gardener!! Get my point? The only criticism is that he brushes very quickly over his early days how he bought his first property with no money! I would have liked it if he could have gone through this crucial stage with far more detail.
Good book opened my eyes up!
3)Thank You Russ For Making It Possible!
By A Customer on 26 Sept. 1998
I always wanted to go into real estate but I sat on my dream so long property prices shot up and I thought I’d never do it. As a result of reading Russ’s book I bought 8 properties in 18 months. I’m in England so I still had a lot to learn as this book is for the USA Market, still the math and the encouragement Russ gives helps you to think it through. It’s like having a friend with you! Thanks again Russ. Wish you’d come over here!

Since buying this book I have already made over £30 (and I am from England), This book is fantastic and full of superb advice on how to turn nothing into a lot. For example I had £10 knocking about and i thought to myself i bet I can make some money with this. Sure enough I read chapter 13 and after only 1 days work i had almost tripled it. It was simple really, I went on BBC food recipe’s figured out how to make cupcakes went down to Tesco picked up my ingredients (£8) and baked them at my nannies house (she likes baking and that way it doesn’t cost me any electricity). I took the cupcakes to town and flogged then for £1 a pop outside Greggs taking Greggs custom before they could enter the shop it was ingenious, however the Greggs manager did warn me that if I didn’t stop selling my tasty treats outside his store he was going to cut my hair off in my sleep (this didn’t deter me as I needed a hair cut anyway)! I was hooked, I’m currently investing in an easy bake oven to further improve my product (and nannie won’t be there every time will she, she’s getting old) I’m projecting profits of well over £300 this year alone, I highly recommend this book to any budding entrepreneur.
