I just finished reading Family Trust 101. I got this book last year for free from John Rowe when I became a client of GRA and Super Salesh started looking after us.

It was sitting on my book shelf for 8 months under lots of dust. Till just last weekend I decided to flick through it. It was so good and easy to read and understand, even by me, that I could not put it down. I finished reading it over the weekend. 

I would recommend it to anyone. As I mentioned it last night too at the Property Tutor seminar you all at GRA are awesome and from a different planet.  All the way through from receptionists to top, Directors. Thank you all.
