Her book provided an island of sanity and confirmation that I was not alone, nor was I imagining that I was surrounded by shark-infested condo waters.

A Great, Practical How-to Guide

This is a great book. There is very little of practical value written anywhere on this subject. And having lived through a similar situation, I wish I had known about this book a lot sooner. For anyone who is battling their condo or HOA or plans to, I highly recommend this book. It is a great starting point for beginners and a useful reference and refresher for those of us who are battle weary veterans.
