But there was a whole lot of information packed into that package. Like I said, not all of it was good (the legal forms were especially bad), but there were also some real gems in there that I didn't find anywhere else. And the little program that helps you determine whether or not a house will cashflow has been invaluable - it (and my home inspector) saved me from making a huge mistake on a double that was in fairly bad shape.

Different people learn in different ways. For me it was books, lots and lots of books. Some of the better ones I have practically destoyed through constant use. They are among my most prized possessions. Books have to be one of the best bargains available. For a relative pittance, you get to pick the brains of experts in any field imaginable. Just a single idea in a used paperback can make (or save) you thousands of dollars.
