It takes you through the lives of 9 successful property investors, cataloging how they got started and the problems they had to deal with along the way.
Whilst it is not a beginners guide, it does give a short 'lessons learned' section at the end of each chapter/case study, which goes some way to helping you understand the mindset of these successful investors.
The book has loads of tips on how to make money from owning property, and it is all valid, as the people in the book are successfully applying their strategies even now.
Even if you have no interest in making money from property, Beyomd the Bricks is a very entertaining read. The book is written in an easy going style that makes it hard to put down. It is always interesting to find out how successful people have made their lives, and Rob Dix brings brings out the essential qualities that each of his subjects has brought to bear within their lives.

This book provides true inspiration for anyone interested in property by detailing the stories of 9 different property investors from all walks of life.

The life stories are fascinating, hugely motivational and demonstrate that there are many routes you can go down to find success.

Nice and easy to read, I particularly liked the lessons at the end of each chapter which broke down the strategies that each investor had used.

Highly recommended for anyone looking for motivation, I've already suggested it to other friends to read.

No matter where you are in your property 'journey' I think you will learn and enjoy from this collection of experienced investor stories. I found it valuable to understand the different real-life strategies and approaches to property investment that have been adopted. Rob also finishes with a useful summary of all the interviews.

Absolutely love this book – the stories, the relaxed writing style, the lessons and the passion that comes across from both interviewees and author.
I couldn't put this book down, and read it straight through in one evening.

Each of the investors has found success in a completely different manner and this gives the book great depth in relaying what is possible in the property investment field.
Ideal for any investor who wants to be very hands-on but also for those who want to sit back and run their portfolio more like a business.

I loved the lessons section at the end of each chapter – a good summary of all the important points of each case study.
The most brilliant lesson that comes from reading all the stories is that property investment is a long game and not a get rich quick scheme.
Gone are the days of the Property Ladder style success, now it’s all about strategy, good deals and hard work.

A good book. I didn't find all the stories of property successes equally compelling - but, some are really instructive and of course, it is a matter of "each to his own". There is a wide variety of experience laid bare within the life histories and property deals discussed. The writing is clear and (relatively) concise and it is obvious that a lot of work went into it.

If you are interested in property investment, whether buy-to-let, buy-to-sell, or stages in between, I think you will find some guidance and inspiration somewhere amongst the "life stories" in this book. Rob Dix is an experienced investor himself and generous with his own, well researched advice. Recommended.

This is a fantastic little book. I was unsure whether I would get bored too easy with this, but it was a great read.
So many British books have a section or chapter in this type of book asking 'Do I have what it takes to be a property investor/landlord' or 'Am I the right type of person to be a landlord/entrepreneur' or whatever. I mention British, because American books say 'You can do it no matter what!'. This book however, doesn't ask that question. In fact, it shows you that there is no right or wrong type of person for being an investor and/or landlord. The people whose stories the author is sharing with us are all very different types of people, all doing this for very different reasons, and are all doing it very differently. It will help you identify what type of investor you would like to be - hands-on or hand-it-over, it will help you decide whether you want HMO's or family homes. Help you see that people in the same situations as you, are making this work for themselves, so you can make it work to.
If you are considering buying an investment property, then read this book first.

Format: Paperback
I never review books, but I felt inspired to after all that Rob (& Rob) have done for me. Their solid 'shark free' advice has given me sound education on property, which has honestly changed my life. Without Rob & Rob my aims would still be to own one BTL unencumbered in 10 years time and have it contribute to a basic pension....1 year on, 2 successful property projects later, my personal financial position is significantly different and I'm ready to go into property full time, with a toolbox of techniques to build diverse streams of income.

Anyway, to the book....it's great, a real inspiration to read how other regular people have done it, and you can too. I share my copy with friends to inspire them, and point them to Rob's podcasts as well. Thanks for a great book Rob!
