Another of the High Beta Rich themed books, this one quite extraordinary in its portrayal of all those poor rich, getting involved politically (no matter its for personal views), helping poor unfortunates (no matter if one runs roughshod over others), and, of course our rich kids with their wired up hair -- who seem to be portrayed as imbecilic. Or the poor old rich boys, who have to go to rich boys meetings to learn how to live?
What is truth here?
Well, taking one aspect: ones good name, and pecuniary strength comes from leisure and conspicuous consumption--and that's all you have to know.
