RICHISTAN A Journey Through the American Wealth Boom and the Lives of the New Rich

by | Read by Dick Hill

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Robert Frank, Wall Street Journal "wealth reporter," shows us how the inhabitants of Richistan--a "parallel country of the rich"--live. This is not the other half; it's the other one percent. Richistanis worry about their financial security and raising children not to be Paris Hilton. They have butlers, $600,000 Franck Muller watches (Rolexes are cheap), and alligator skin toilet seats on private jets. Dick Hill does his usual masterful work, faithfully translating Frank's frequent amusement. Hill's light tone is perfect for relating the foibles of those with unlimited funds. Hill also creates appropriate voices for the many interviewees and others quoted in the book--a particular favorite is the philanthropist from Texas who applies business rules to his charity giving.
