After following Sam's adventures on her popular blog for some time I thought it might be handy to grab a copy of her latest book - "Property Investment: the essential rules" Let me start by saying that there is nothing groundbreaking in this book, the advice in here could be found in any other property investing book and alot of her rules are simply common sense (to most people) so do not buy this book in the hope of making overnight riches.
What you will find in here is well structured advice, thought out and presented in Sam's unique style which I personally find easy to read and digest, no willy waving, no rubbish - Just a genuine aide memoir on the best practices to grow a healthy and successful business.

The rules are split into 4 themed chapters and each rule is documented in the contents but also cruicially indexed at the back incase you want to find a rule based on a certain problem you may have, which is very useful. The author writes in a way that you know means she has been there and done that which reinforces her authority on the subject at hand, I didn't disagree on any of the rules in there and thought the book offers a well rounded approach to investing.

I particularly liked the section on dealing with customers, a very important topic lots of investing books never deal with.
In summary a great aide memoir that I will revisit for snippits of advice as and when I need it, definitely worth the purchase price.

If your serious and I mean SERIOUS about buying and selling property or buying and renting property for profit then this book is an ESSENTIAL companion. Packed with really useful and more importantly practical advice from sitting yourself down and giving yourself a good talking to, to calculating yields from your properties and even asking for discounts and money off Samantha leads you hand in hand through practical tutorials so YOU actually get to think about YOUR situation, and empowers you through her easy writing style to try it out. You will be amazed how much you can get off things when you actually ask! The cash is always better in your pocket than others.

Not so much a book, more of a management tool every bit as important as a great accountant and DIY skills.

Don't just read it. Study it. Make notes and refer back to it often. It really is a great read.

Come on Sam, get writing the sequel!

A great book for all investors, particularly beginners or those exploring the possibility of a buy to let portfolio. Samantha tells it as it is, warts and all, with her essential rules of property. She breaks them down into sections so you can read the ones you're most interested in first, if you like or course.

Samantha has a great writing style that keeps you hooked. It was a quick read and a book I'd like to have in my library so I can refer back to it from time to time. I would have liked to hear more antidotes from Samantha's experiences (names changed of course) as it would have added some colour to the rules. I would recommend it to all new or would be property investors.

This is Sam's second book this year, and it is every bit as good as the first. Targeting new and aspiring property investors, this is an essential book to add to the reading list. Covering things that new investors (and a few existing ones) can easily overlook in the haste to buy, this book includes the potential pitfalls as well as a good selection of how-to's when it comes to investing and being a landlord, together with reasons for entering into this industry in the first place. A prolific writer as well as investor, Sam is a class act.

I've just finished reading this book and found it useful as a person new to property investment.

The book is well structured into 4 sections which is helpful. There is new info, things you've heard already and things that make you think in a different way.

I will use it as a quick reference guide in the future. One stop shop!
