    Comments about Australian Residential Property Development:

    This book is very thorough in identifying the issues and processes with different types of property development for the novice developer.
    It does tend to read more like a series of lists rather than a narrative explanation. I would have liked to read more about different examples and experiences of the author that help describe the concepts.
