A shiny new book showed up today, in a boring brown package. Wiley sent me a free copy (being a Facebook addict has it’s advantages), just for commenting on the wall of their Facebook group. That’s a pretty smart way to do things, and I’m going to pay it forward, but I’ll get to that in a minute.
First, it’s called 81 Financial and Tax Tips for the Canadian Real Estate Investor: Expert Money-Saving Advice on Accounting and Tax Planning, and it’s written by Don Campbell, George Dube (CGA) and Navaz Murji (MAcc, CA). I’ve heard them all speak at REIN meetings, and I’ve talked with Navaz about handling my taxes, although I’ll probably wait until next year. I’m looking forward to reading this one, especially given that it’s tax time.
It’s laid out in the same way as 97 Tips and 51 Success Stories. There’s a tip, some explanation and then a series of boxes with red flags, insights and tips.
I thing they’re great books, and I’m looking forward to this one. To pay it forward, I’m going to give away a copy of one of Don and Russell’s (et al) books. Just drop a name and email in the form and I’ll send you a free copy.

I have yet to pick mine up yet. I was at the book store today and read a bit of it. I will be making another trip to the book store this weekend to pick up my copy.
Hope all is well.
Hi Neil, I have to admit I haven’t started reading it yet. I also don’t want to send someone a pre-loved copy. I’ll have to get myself a new copy too.
Let me know what you think.
