Creating and Growing Real Estate Wealth: The 4 Stages to a Lifetime of Success

William J. Poorvu, Author, Jeffrey L. Cruikshank, With . Pearson Education $21.99 (254p) ISBN 978-0-132-43453-9

Harvard Business School professor Poorvu writes a very good book for a very specific readership: people who want to invest or build careers in real estate. This well-organized text shows what a typical life in real estate is like so that newcomers can decide whether the field is right for them. It also offers advice on how to grow real estate investments for people who are already in the industry. The book is divided into four stages: “starting out” looks at how to begin a real estate career by getting your first job (with tips as specific as résumé suggestions and as broad as finding a focus); “scaling up” focuses on what to do after you're established (such as making the decision to grow or stay small); “hedging your bets” discusses potential crises in the field; and “taking stock” looks at later career steps. Throughout these chapters, further subheadings make the material easy to navigate. Poorvu includes a variety of real world stories about people and their career experiences to make for an interesting read with a practical edge. (Mar.)
