This has got to be unique - a professional's insight that shoots from the hip - casual, street-wise, superbly knowledgeable, and fun. Or "Sussed", exactly like it says on the tin. More like personal notes on hard-won trade secrets, it's an easy read for a complicated subject, light-heartedly presented just the way a close friend might, liberally sprinkled with personal asides and anecdotes. Best of all, it's an authentic and thoroughly convincing "feel" of what it might be like to be a property owner actually living through the experience of renting to multiple tenants. There's even a bonus: extra input from housing law expert Ben Reeve-Lewis cuts through the massive tangle of legalese (the official six-volume Housing Law Encyclopaedia is two feet thick and weighs twenty-six pounds) to bring you vital info straight-up in words everyone can understand. All in just 100 pages, so it's not really a book, it's more a pocket-size go-anywhere set of professional crib notes. Keep it handy in your top drawer. If you're in the business, you're going to use it a lot.
