According to HOA WARRIOR author Shelly Marshall, "Most people don't realize the broad sweeping powers that a board of directors have over life when you buy a home in an association. In fact, you won't know it until you are in crisis. But Shelly Marshall, owner/advocate, has paved a path for you. This book leads the homeowner step by step in how to use everything at their disposal in order to take on and effect change with an Association Board of Directors. Taken from her personal experience with an out of control board, where the homeowners won, you can learn from her personal stories and the many stories of other homeowners who took on the good fight. Don't let your board or their attorneys intimidate you."
