    The books below  I have read and made constant positive change.

    You will notice there are a lot of non property based books, I have found these help greatly  in negotiating great outcomes, due to using different tactics than buyers,sellers and agents would expect eg as they may only ready property books , they can find it harder to read your next move which can helps you negotiate, or find other opportunities.

    Probably not a good look for an author of wealth books.

    I would recommend many of Margaret Lomas' books. In particular "Investing in the Right Property Now!". Has a good in depth look at the market and what drives it, as well as how to find property, financing, and mistakes to avoid.

    As someone has mentioned, it is more of a conservative approach to investing and very much about buy and hold, positive cash flow property.

    But highly recommended, particularly for those new to investing who are unsure where to start.

    Cheers

    I'd agree with the comments above. I've enjoyed all of her books – the 20 must ask questions one had some great points.

    Cheers

    Yeah I agree the 20 Questions book is a good one for starting out in an area!

    Has anyone noticed that with the exception of Steves new book, there is not really a lot of good new wealth creation books out? Or is it just where I am?

    Cheers

    Books are written to generate income.  They will generate more income if they are written in a manner that targets the bulk of the audience.  In this case, this means beginner investors.  It's where you are luv.  There is not a big enough market of people doing or wanting to do the fancy footsteps you are stepping!

    Oh of course!  So what is the purpose of a large STG portfolio??  Puzzled.  I understand the logic behind a large loan with a spread, unsure if I agree with it, but I understand the logic.  But why St George specifically?

    Just thought I'd give this thread a nudge…..

    FYI I ordered some books and material recently through 'The Book Depository' and found the prices excellent and all my material was delivered from the UK intact including some audio CD's. 

    Amongst the material was '7 Strategies for Wealth & Happiness'; 'My Philosophy for Successful Living'; and audio CD's 'The Art of Exceptional Living' all by Jim Rohn. 

    I would thoroughly recommend these to anyone. Jim Rohn is a truely exceptional speaker and his ideologies are very easy to understand. 

    Brilliant!

    Listing Rich by Charles Tarbey

    It's a real estate book written by the chairman of Century 21 Australasia. It was originally published back in 1994, but has been updated and rewritten for 2013.

    It is geared more towards real estate agents, but has a lot of good info for anyone interested in real estate.

    You can grab it for free too.

    A couple of books I read lately about US property investing, I thought they were both really useful.

    By Michael Ryan

    Buying Property in The USA: A Foreign Investor's Guide

    By Sam Daniels & Ken Sugiura
