What People Say About Michael Yardney's Books


I found this book really helpful as someone with some existing property investment experience. The book is written in a way that makes it very easy to understand, so it would also be a great start point for people who are beginning. I think I will also buy the hard copy as it will be easier to mark the bits of information I found most useful. I would highly recommend this book as it cuts through the confusion and gives straightforward and proven advice. I've read Michael's other books as well (as he speaks from his own experiences), this is the latest and definitely worth a read!

Amanda Vandenberghe -

This book has great content. It not only showed you how to grow a property portfolio, also the principle to reach financial independence. Don't think you can do everything, have a good team surround you, it's the key to success. Before read this book, I confused whether to buy property with cash flow or capital growth. Now I think I have a very clear answer. Now I feel I have the confidence to start my journey for property investing.
Couldn't stop reading this book when I started. I think every investor should read this book!

Jessica Sonido -

This book came highly recommended from a friend whom is a successful property investor. I found it covers the fundamentals of investing in property providing real, actionable, steps for growing a multi-million dollar cash machine. Learning the different levels of investment and comparing that to my situation was sobering and motivational. The four stranded strategic approach rings true based on my experience with property. It also answered my questions of whether to pay down my mortgage or start investing now. I never really understood the final "level 4" investor end game of living off equity and then reducing your LVR to create a cash machine so that helps. Now onto Michael's next book...
