  • I have read this book and the stories of tenents gave me some good chuckles and pretty much tells it like it is. This book offered humor but also was very helpful in dealing with situations that arise with rental properties.

  • Read it, loved it, informative, fun to red. Saves time, and money if you are in this business. If you have not read it, you lost on a valuable source. Good reference book.
