Publisher's Summary

What does it take to be a successful property investor? How can you start with nothing but a very ordinary level of savings and amass a portfolio that means you'll never need to work for anyone else again?
Beyond the Bricks is a window into the lives of nine UK-based investors who've done exactly that. Through long-form interviews with them, we learn exactly how they did it, what their lives are like now, and what they recommend to anyone just starting out.
Of course, "success" is a relative term. During the book you'll meet people ranging from Mark, who amassed a portfolio worth millions, to Serena, whose few houses saved her family from financial ruin. And along the way you'll meet Kim, who was unstoppable prior to the credit crunch, nearly lost everything, and found an innovative way to stay afloat.
The day-to-day life of a property investor isn't necessarily what you'd expect either. Fast cars and exotic holidays are represented...but so, too, are sprinting in pursuit of rent checks, puttering around in a dressing gown all day, and helping a tenant with cancer by driving her to hospital appointments.
This book is less of a "how to" than a "how you could". It won't give you one formula for success but many practical ideas and inspiring examples that you can use to craft your own property-investing story.
With all jargon clearly explained, this book will be an educational and entertaining listen for those who are yet to get started as well as a rich source of new ideas for more-experienced investors.

A wholesome read/listen that gave me some much needed time for reflection

I was engrossed in this book start to finish. It gave me a lot to think about, in the both the core aspects of my property portfolio and those bits that require fine tuning.

I would recommend this book to beginners that require a mindset shift and to build their 'property IQ'. Or the more experienced investors looking for reflection time and the opportunity to glean some golden nuggets.

Some may see 4hrs of audio as a lot but for me it was only a taster. I could have done 10 times that with content like this.
