Returned the audiobook; Bought the physical copy

I’m familiar with Chad and his writing style from his blog. I know he’s a brilliant real estate investor so I was really excited when I found out about he’s written a book and even more excited when I found the audio version. Unfortunately, I can’t comment on the content because I couldn’t even get through the first chapter of the audiobook. The narration is abysmal. It’s clear it wasn’t painstakingly recorded and edited.

I’ll be returning the audiobook and buying the physical version to read for myself. I’ll update my story rating once I’ve read it.

Great content, but...

I LOVE the content of the book! Chad does a great job breaking everything down so it's easy to understand.

The only feedback I have is that, someone should have gone in after the fact and cleaned up the recording (i.e. edit out the times he tripped over his words, had to repeat himself, etc.) It's not bad enough to where I couldn't listen to the audiobook, but, it was distracting enough for me to make mention of it here.

Coach leads the way

I really enjoyed this book. I found it well-written, and enjoyed the authors organization of the book. I find his steps and style of investing very encouraging. This is not a buy our course get rich quick book. Coach explains multiple pathways to finding a life of freedom through real estate. By far the best book I have read on the topic, the next step is to take action.

Slow, boring and repetitive.

Good for basic and beginner tips. However the delivery is weak and not captivating. The author does too much of simply reading other investor’s letters and success stories aloud, as if they’re bedtime stories. Narrator’s voice & tone is also very mundane making me wish this book was over sooner than later.

Great playbook for getting me started

I really learned a lot from Chad’s book. It clearly lays out the various strategies you can chose from to get started “climbing the mountain” up through what to do at the top. I listened to this book while taking notes and now I’m feeling much more confident in how to approach my real estate investing plan for the future. Thanks Chad and the biggerpockets team for putting out such great content. My only critique was that there were multiple points in the recording that Chad slips up reading and it could have been cleaned up in post processing but it’s minor. I know I couldn’t record my voice for hours on end without flubbing a few words along the way. Thanks again for the great content and on to the next biggerpockets audio book!

A book for the wealthy

lots of great ideas and knowledgeable advice here, but Carson lost me when he said 'buy three houses for $200,000 each and...'
