This is, as you can imagine, a hilarious tongue-in-cheek review from a spoilt rich kid's perspective of making it big in life. I filed it under "Business" on my Kindle because (and I was as surprised as you may be) there were honestly some great lessons in it that made me think. I know, crazy.
I've always enjoyed Brendan's humour, and it's followed through with a tornado in Empire. If Richard Branson, Bono, The Queen and Barack Obama all shared a god-child, Lucien Dunlop Fantasia would be him. Able to buy anything (and I mean anything) at a whim, or brunching with celebrities you've forgotten about (but are still super famous), mixed with a penchant for hover boards and scented reading pillows, he's done it. Lucien goes through life learning lessons from investing in ridiculous businesses to spending time in jail to drug-binges beyond compare, finally ending up in the great world of advertising, successfully selling denim fridge jackets, dildo alarm clocks and Ouma rusks. Okay I lied about the rusks, but I'm sure he had a hand in that too.
An absolutely hilarious and engaging book about the utmost extreme edge of where life could be, with a few great gems hidden inside. My favourite: "Water always picks the shortest route to flow downhill. Water may be lazy, but it's also powerful. Find this balance."
