Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Jason Hartman found himself looking through his old books in his mom’s house. In the stacks he found two books that were key in his investing journey, The Art of the Deal by Donald Trump, and Mission Success by Og Mandino. Jason explains why these books impacted him so much and why they’re still important today.

Then, Jason talks with Jeff Meyers, President at Meyers Research, about the state of the housing market across the USA, and how much runway the market might have. They also discuss whether millennials are finally ready to buy their first houses, and the incredible impact the self-driving car will have.
