A warning to those who are considering becoming landlords: investing in rental property is far from a bed of roses! This useful handbook has over thirty cases, documented over years of experience, which illustrate some of the difficulties that landlords face in their relationships with their tenants. So You Want to be a Landlord explores the trials and tribulations of a landlord just trying to do his job. While his accounts are not designed to condemn all housing tenants, this book, he hopes, will serve as a great resource to all prospective landlords, exposing as it does many of the pitfalls that they may encounter. Case history confirms tenants' rights and the imbalance that favours tenants over landlords. With over forty years' experience as a commercial landlord and fifteen years as judge in a small claims court, Judge Adams relays a number of stories that were told under oath, and which will act as an invaluable source of information to any would-be landlord.

In November, 2001, I was sued, along with almost everyone else connected with the film version of my novel K-PAX, for plagiarizing an Argentinean movie called Man Facing Southeast (the suit was later dismissed). At about the same time, dozens of letters arrived from fans asking where the ideas for the book/film originated. Together, these developments led me to ponder how my difficult life had led me to become a writer, and how I came to write K-PAX in particular. The resulting memoir includes excerpts from unpublished work, and ends with a chapter of advice for other would-be novelists.

It's no secret that the majority of wealth is tied to real estate. After experiencing success, my wife and I have become somewhat evangelical about real estate. Furthermore, this is a great way to build self-esteem, equity, and retirement for yourself and your family. If you're interested in a get-rich-quick scheme, put this book back on the shelf and pick up one of the many other books on the topic. I do not have seminars and progressive steps to my approach, at least not yet. What I have done, and my philosophy, is to provide a somewhat simple and realistic approach to property investing. Hopefully, you will see the benefit of property investing and try this on your own. Perhaps the greatest barrier to investing in property is overcoming fear. I am reminded of the Nike slogan from the eighties "Just do it." Whenever anyone incredulously asks me how I got into real estate, the simple answer is that I simply did.

The one you really want could be closer than you think... THE ONE YOU REALLY WANT is a sweet, funny, romantic novel from bestselling author Jill Mansell. Not to be missed by readers of Marian Keyes and Cathy Kelly. It all starts with a shiny, red, sit-on lawn-mower. When Nancy spies her Christmas present from her husband sitting on the lawn, she realises the jewellery she thought was for her must be on someone else. Her best friend Carmen isn't surprised (she never liked Jonathan) and persuades Nancy to leave Edinburgh and come and stay in her luxury London flat - far too vast for Carmen since her husband, millionaire rock star Spike Todd, died. Soon Nancy's met gorgeous Connor O'Shea, who lives next door, and his daughter Mia is matchmaking - not least because she'd like to see the back of Connor's current pushy girlfriend. Meanwhile Carmen, who's always been certain she doesn't want another man in her life, feels a spark when a handsome charity worker called Joe calls round. But Joe's not quite all he seems... What readers are saying about The One You Really Want: 'Clever and delightful tale - I was totally enchanted throughout. The writing was humorous, involving, heart squeezing, emotive, and full of witty banter' Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars 'A gentle meander through the spark of romantic chemistry' Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars 'Jill Mansell is the master of taking a simple story and enriching it with an intricate cast of characters.
