Best book on real estate I have read by a wide margin. Author does an outstanding job describing the dynamics of Crow's company. The book provides thoughtful insight into many of the major issues that real estate owners/developers encounter while trying to build a company.

This is a book I will recommend any partner/employee I work with read. If I would have read it three years ago, I could have avoided three major professional mistakes that this book warns against.

It is as much about the genesis and growth of the Trammell Crow Companies as it is about Trammell Crow himself. The Art of the Deal by Donald Trump is a considered the quintessential "deal book" by many real estate professionals. The Art of the Deal is probably an easier and more interesting read, but doesn't hold a candle to Trammell Crow: Master Builder in terms of useful content.
