    Michael Yardney "Rules of Property".

    In my personal view, avoid Margaret Lomas as she talks too much about regional areas. Regional areas gets too far into the realm of hot spotting for my liking. Michael Yardney is superb on the fundamental essence of property investing.

    I disagree with this view. Margaret Lomas's recent books have a lot to offer IMO.

    She's a smart lady and yes, lots to offer. I just don't like her regional edge for reasons mentioned above.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    How do you compare Yardney's two books
    1. How to Grow a Multi-Million Dollar Property Portfolio in Your Spare Time
    2. Rules of property

    Any one who read both the books please comment.

    Thanks
