From the New York May issue: Real estate attorney Adam Leitman Bailey’s debut book, “Finding the Uncommon Deal,” doles out advice on all stages of buying a house, condo or co-op. Yet the author’s ambitions are broader than just a how-to guide to homeownership. “My life, my business and my legal practice have been dedicated to real estate and attempting to make the United States a better place to live by advocating for better real estate decisions,” Bailey, the energetic and frenetic founder of Manhattan-based residential and commercial law firm Adam Leitman Bailey, PC, writes in the preface. The 230-page paperback from John Wiley & Sons was published in the middle of last month, and shot to No. 1 on the New York Times list of paperback advice and how-to books. (However, the ranking noted that bookstores had been receiving bulk orders for the title.) [more]
