About Misery of the Billionaires
What makes people happy? The question has puzzled thinkers for millennia, from Greek sages to New York quacks. Modern society increasingly seems to equate happiness with material gain. The contemporary billionaire is, in this respect, seen as the epitome of achievement and, thus, happiness. But is this right? In a series of amusing and revealing stories, based on the author’s own experiences, Misery of the Billionaires explodes this myth, exposing the insecurities, paranoia and unhappiness that accompany elevated levels of wealth.
