Hey all

Having just finished reading all the previous messages, I thought I’d post all the books that where mentioned over the past year or so.

In no particular order, enjoy!


'Smarter property investment'- by Peter Cerexhe
'Understanding Investment Property'- by N E Renton

NEY SECRETS OF THE RICH by John Burley- not all about property investment but a thought-provoking read, nevertheless. THE WEALTH POWER OF PROPERTY by Fred Johnson- great for the basics. And Jan Somer's BUILDING WEALTH STORY BY STORY is also very good- basic stories by basic "like you and I" investors

The other one is "Multiple Streams of Income" written by Robert Allen and his other best sellers "Nothing Down". Hope this helps. Cheers : ) Jasmine

Investing in Real Estate on a budget" by Alan J Falkson. The book is now out of print. You can track it down through secondhand book stores and some librarie

Renton's Understanding Investment Property is a good book, as far removed from that Kiyosaki and Somers bull

The Richest Man in Babylon", by George Clason

'The Desktop Guide to Residential Property Management' by Bob Walters

1)Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude by Napoleon Hill & W. Clemont Stone.

"How to get the Be$t Deal Every Time... without rubbing people the wrong way"

first inspirational books was by Noel Whittaker "Making Money Made Simple" He listed in this book a number of other good self improvement & motivational reads. The Books that I found great are Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude Napoleon Hill & W Clement Stone. The Magic of Thinking Big David J. Schwartz.

Brad Sugars, "Instant Cashflow

Harry Dent "The Roaring 2000s"

Richest Man in Babylon (George Clason) - the basics of life and security, written back in time.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad (Robert Kiyosaki) - my personal "wake-up call" - an easy read that cranks up the brain cells.

Think and Grow Rich (Napolean Hill) - another classic - persistence is the key.

Building Wealth through Investment Property (Jan Somers) - the "nuts and bolts" of property investment written especially for Australians.

Building Wealth, Story By Story - (Jan Somers) - 101 stories of investors, successful and unsuccessful, in an easy-to-read format.

And one that I got from the Library (and still want to buy my own copy if anyone can point me to one), is written by Alan Falkson - the title was something like "How to Invest in Real Estate on a Budget" or "How to Invest in Real Estate Using Other Peoples' Money". A Perth author, set in early '90's - has some unusual (but very successful) ideas for wealth creation.
