Best Book about Airbnb, By Far!!

I'm a real estate investor that's read hundreds of books on the subject. This collection of books regarding Airbnb is EXTREMELY well written. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I guarantee the single star, bad reviews (which weren't even verified purchases) were probably authors of a different Airbnb book that are trying to deter you away from this one. The voice wasn't the greatest, however the information presented as well as the invaluable tips throughout were well worth my money. For example, one quick tip offered: Get a separate LLC for EACH individual property you plan on using on Airbnb. Why you may ask? This mitigates risk tremendously. If an accident occurs at one of your properties and you get sued, ONLY the assets included in that individual LLC can used in the lawsuit. This tip alone is a great example as to the author's depth in their experience written in these books.

Great Content. Poor Presentation.

When it comes to owning and operating a short term rental it is very apparent Jonathan Smart knows his stuff. When it comes to writing and editing a book it is very apparent he does not. The content of the combined five books is great. As someone who is in the process of opening their first short term rental, I really appreciated all of the knowledge he shares. His years as an owner and host are very evident and the book is definitely worth buying to gain that knowledge. But this book would be so much better if he spent time editing prior to publishing. The editing is bad. Quite bad. At times I laughed out loud at some of the incredible run-on sentences or sentences that just did not make sense. I imagine there were times the gentleman who read for the recording had to stop out of frustration. I guess the best metaphor for the book is it is a beautiful rental property that has horrible photographs on the site.

I'm giving this four stars overall because I think the content is well worth it. If I was just rating the editing I'd give it one or two.

I learned nothing from this book. It’s very basic

IMO, there is nothing strategic in this book. No evidence this guy has made 1 penny of profit from his units. Everything he says is just common sense, like keep the place clean and respond quickly to inquiries. If you are a mature adult and have a basic level of business acumen, you will find this book very boring and repetitive. As for some of the more detailed info, like how do you become a Superhost, or how does AirBnB pay you, you can get all of this with a quick Google search. No reason to pay $ for it.

Word for word same content as another book

I don't know the circumstances behind this experience and these productions but I will say what I can from my experience. I have been researching this topic and this is the second book I have started going through. I did not finish it and got a refund for a couple reasons. I came across a chapter that was word for word the exact same as the previous book I listened to. Two different authors, two different narrators. The narrator for this book felt weak, I had a hard time listening to it to begin with and then I came across this issue. I can't speak for who's in the right or wrong but it was an oddity to say the least.

The other book is: How to Create an Empire on Airbnb Without Owning a Home by Manuel Banks

I wish I could give you your 5 star review….

Wow, I was really into this book until I was told about the 5 pictures to add to your listing. Apparently, you need to add a picture of your girlfriend, wife or family… so apparently he wasn’t meaning for his audience to be a woman. Thank you again for being just another man writing a book to another man about how to succeed. I’m incredibly offended that this book written in an inclusive tone. If this wasn’t such good information I would give less stars!!! Us women make up a good part of this world and it’s about time we be included!!!!!

Poor writing, dry narration

99% common sense. Reads like an old guy rambling. Too wordy, run on sentences everywhere.

Great information.

This audiobook was really great and informative however if you are a grammar nerd it will drive you crazy... there seems to be a lot of run on sentences. I am not an ace at grammar myself but could not help noticing the long and drawn out narratives throughout the book.

If you can get past that it is great! I have almost an entire notebook full of notes and the great ideas and practices mentioned in the book.

It's Just Everything You Need

This was a great in depth overview of almost everything you will need as a beginning Airbnb host. It was both helpful and mentoring. Would definitely recommend!

Very easy to understand

Very easy to understand and a great first audiobook. It taught me a lot about Airbnb and how to make money without owning property.
