I got to know this book when I read a book by steve Berger, "The complete guide to flipping properties" as the Author has mentioned a lot about "Always Think Big". As I am in Tanzania, I am not sure whether I will be able to get this book since I can't get it here in our country and the credit card system is not such popoular!
