Nuggets of Wisdom is a crisp compilation of the author’s years of experience and expertise in the field of real estate and investments, presented in the form of interesting short articles and anecdotes. It is meant to give the reader a ‘booster shot’ to improve his/her intuitive side while dealing with investments. The book is presented in the form of short anecdotes that would have a lasting impression on the reader, leaving him/her with tested wisdom that will guide his/her investments.
The author has compressed and compiled his years of learning into this short book which is a must read for anyone who has made investments in the past or who will deal with real estate in the future.

Final Rating: 4/5

The cover image is attractive, and innovative.
There is an image of two hands full of Gold nuggets. It creates an image of a Financial Self Help book.

The Title is inspiring to invest. It looks to me that it is very carefully named, as in the past 10 years real estate has not been performing that well.

The Blurb give a very clear picture of what the book is about.

This book may turn out to be very useful to people who are dealing with real estate or planning to buy or invest in some property. It was a long time myth that Real Estate always give returns in positive, but the economic meltdown of 2008 in the real estate market of USA shook the world and busted the myth.

The vocabulary and the small chapters made the journey of this book really interactive. The author has very well talked about all the concepts which are to the point and crisp and explained with a much clarity examples.

The language used is lucid, easy to understand for a layman. It helped the readers to connect with the author’s expertise of real estate market.

The book is extensively researched and it shows from the work itself.
I would like to say that everything is explained perfectly. I would recommend this novel to everyone.
