Tim Ferriss is a Princeton University guest lecturer, and his unorthodox teachings have been known to elicit controversy. When asked what he does, he has trouble answering. "I race motorcycles in Europe. I ski in the Andes. I scuba dive in Panama. 

I dance tango in Buenos Aires. " He's spent more than five years learning the secrets of the new rich-a fast-growing subculture that has abandoned the deferred-life plan and instead mastered the new currencies-time and mobility-to create luxury lifestyles in the here and now. 

You don't need a trust fund or family inheritance to be one of this nouveau riche, as Ferriss calls them. In fact, you might already be one without knowing it; if you've ever flown first class or stayed at a Four Seasons hotel, you're already part of this exclusive rank. Regardless of your income level, if you're trapped in your own career or business, this book is your compass for a new and revolutionary world.
