Riding the Bubble reads like not most books I’ve read. It didn’t feel like I was reading, rather I was having a conversation with the author. The topics were easy to understand, even though I have no experience in real estate. It was interesting to see another take on the rise and fall of the housing bubble.
Riding the Bubble is a fantastic personal account on real estate dealings when the market was red hot in the early 2000's. This book goes one step further and does not sugar coat the fallout once the bubble burst. The author's style of writing makes this a real page turner that excites and lets you see the industry through the eyes of a budding investor
The way this book is written... you feel like you are there in the thick of it, buying and selling houses at the height of the market. It is one of the best accounts of the housing bubble I have seen from the perspective of the real estate investor. Getting a step by step process of deals as they occurred is just such an interesting way to see the housing bubble form, and then inevitably pop.
