I am looking to soon begin my venture into the the world of Property Investing and I would like to start by reading a few intelligent, yet simple, books within the field. The first stage of my strategy is to start a positive cash flow portfolio. From what I gather- Jan Somers, Margaret Lomas, Steve Mcknight & Michael Yardney are the Authors to look for...

My question is- What titles will be best suited to me as a beginner & and my strategy?

Also, I feel everyone has a book or two that in one way or another they consider it to be their "bible". I have two- Think & Grow rich by Napoleon Hill and How to win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie- each was handed to me by my mother and father. If you have one I would also love to hear of it.

Thank you.

    Hi KP,

    If you are seeking a cashflow type strategy Steve McKnight and Margaret Lomas would be your best options. Steve's first book (0 - 130) was written sometime ago and things have changed a little since then. I must admit I haven't read Margaret's material so cannot suggest which title to start with.

    The other people (& I would add Peter Spann to your list too) are more growth focussed. Their first books would be a good place to start if you wanted to pursue their beliefs a little. Read the first ones and then see if their written message suits you and your philosophies.

    My bibles are now more focussed on 'business' matters.
