Just finished M. Yardneys book tilted “Grow your million dollar portfolio in your spare time”, and found it one of the most informative and easy to read books I have read on P.Investing. As a novice Property investor whose read a number of investing books I found Michaels by far the best. Half way through the book I sent the wife to the book shop to purchase his second book, and am looking forward to starting it.
Some interesting books suggested. Like a previous post stated, you have to take the good parts and leave the rest.
I found Yardney's 'Grow your million dollar portfolio in your spare time' useful and also De Roos. My next book is going to be by Margaret Lomas. Heard her speak at a recent property expo and also went to the stall.
Daviddanae, good to see 'the wife' was useful! Did she return with a slab a beer when she was sent to buy your book?
My favourite to date are two books by Peter Spann – Wealth Magic, and $10,000,000 Million Property Portfolio in just 10 Years because of they made me realise that almost anyone can turn their financial situation around and motivated me to learn more. I have been to a couple of his intro nights which were good and will attend a weekend workshop later this year.
I have read quite a few of the others already mentioned but some aren't that useful on a practical level but help open your mind to new ways of thinking – which in itself makes a book worthwhile. There's nothing sadder than being trapped by your own mental cage.
Steve McKnigh's $1,000,000 in Property in 1 Year was interesting but lacking in practical detail. Although the practical details were obviously not part of the scope of that book but it was still a worthwhile read because it shared the growth, challenges and triumphs of other first timers.
John L Fitzgerald's Wealth From Scratch was very useful because of the practical exercises which makes you take ACTION and gave me knowledge that increased my confidence that yes, my partner and I could do it. We have our own home and settlement on our first IP will occur in three weeks – which will be a WOO HOO moment for us. One down, how many more to go??
"What I Didn't Learn At School But Wish I Had" by Jamie McIntyre Its a Free Wealth Creation Ebook. I subscribe it Free in Keith Mason's Website. I love Jamie McIntyre book. The book was probably one of my best investments in my future and will prove to be invaluable. Being young as 27, the book taught me so much in so many areas. Only 2 days after the reading the book I have noticed a big difference in the way I feel emotionally through the personal development aspect of the book.
hi, wish i'd read steve mcknight earlier – got it in dec 2005 after an argument with my sister who thought i was risking too much. based on steve's 2nd book , i found my position far too conservative & proceeded to increase my exposure to around 58% LVR. the properties exploded & yielded 45% in 2006-2008
i ran out of books to buy! i bought them all & don't even bother with discounts. get enough with the tax deductions.
the most inspiring albeit a bit outdated is 'ordinary millionaires'. all the strategies are in that simple little book.
geoff doige is exteremely funny.
an older book i found in the national library should be required reading in any uni curriculum. it's called 'missed fortune 101'
all young people including my high income niece should read it. there's a section on arbitrage that is the cornerstone of any wealth creation.
I've read Rich Dad Poor Dad and I had a general feeling of unease about it. The John T Reed website sums up all my thought perfectly about that book. Don't get sucked into the hype! think carefully while reading.

Interesting, when you consider that splattered throughout John T Reed's attacks are his own Titles that you are encouraged to 'Add to Cart'.
I assume this is just another sales ploy, one not mentioned in his extensive list…. the one that suggests, 'buy mine, cause i bag someone elses'…
