Unfortunately, all great real estate deals rely on the initial seller getting a poor price for their property. Spin it any way you wish ("Clarence sold his home to a wholesaler and escaped the double mortgage payments that were drowning him!" He did, but got 60% of his home's value.), you cannot make money in real estate without somebody else losing money. Sure, there's the house flipping strategy where you buy cheap and restore the property, but even that's a situation where the seller loses because they can't afford the repairs themselves.
To the author's credit, he recommends strictly ethical practices, finding "great deals" notwithstanding. There are certainly a number of dirty tricks that allow a savvy person to take advantage of those with meager means or poor credit. The author warns sternly against these, and gives some genuinely useful advice for creatively investing without fleecing those who are down on their luck.
It is worth mentioning that the author seems genuinely motivated to teach, rather than trying to make his fortune by selling you and endless string of books to teach you how to make yours. Most of the additional resources mentioned are free, and other books mentioned are usually written by other authors.
As with any investment, there are numerous hazards and pitfalls; perhaps more here due to the "no or low money down" approach. But, the author does identify these, and gives appropriate words of warning. Anybody can creatively invest in real estate, but it is clear that not everybody should.

It won’t blow your mind as the author claims in the incipit. If you’re new to investing in real estate, you may want to read other books. Otherwise, this book may give you some ideas on how to expand your real estate business, but nothing more.

Good book, good read. Fun and motivating.
The ways described to use other peoples money for investing in real estate is basically to flip the house so you can pay them back fast. I don't consider this "investing" as much as "working". You can pick up a few tricks here and there, but parts of it is US-specific and all of it is circumstantial.
