    The rich have always been different from you and me, but this revealing and funny journey through Richistan entertainingly shows that they are more different than ever. Richistanis have 400-foot-yachts, 30,000-square-foot homes, house staffs of more than 100, and their own "arborists". They're also different from Old Money, and have torn down blue-blood institutions to build their own shining empire.

    Kenneth says: "Enjoyable Read"

    Overall

    I wouldn't exactly call it essential reading, but it does describe one of the effects of globalization on American culture. American workers who can be replaced by Chinese are becoming increasingly less valuable, while American entrepreneurs who develop products for the global market are able to generate considerable wealth. This book shows the reader how an emerging class of newly rich Americans is developing a distinctive way of life within the larger American culture.
