#2 Risk Game: Self Portrait of an Entrepreneur

Risk Game: Self Portrait of an Entrepreneur
Personal Recommendation: The best book I’ve recently read on real estate is Risk Game: Self Portrait of an Entrepreneur by Francis Greenburger.

This book of memoirs by the co-op king of New York describes how Greenburger made his mark in New York real estate by converting apartment buildings in neighborhoods like Clinton Hill into co-operatives owned by occupants. Greenburger also had his hand in a variety of other real estate including commercial buildings in Manhattan and New Jersey.

This book delved into a lot of personal elements of Greenburger’s life but was overall a great narrative look at the life of a real estate entrepreneur.
