I have read many books on marketing and wealth building, and my knowledge on the subject is pretty good, but what makes this book great and stand out from the pack is the fact that the author is writing from personal experience, and what a better way to learn then from someone who actually lived and experienced it first hand. This book is a must read for those who want to learn how to really create a legacy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious. Engaging. Smart. I loved it. 12 Jan. 2012
By Don Packett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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."
5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a lot of fun. It has a fine and sophisticated sense of humor. And yet it's timely! 5 Oct. 2011
By HonestReviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
First of all, you should know that this book is a fictional comedy. It's a satire of success memoirs and advertising - and not a real business book. As you will notice, the satire is very well done, the sarcasm is sharp and yet soft and fun, not bitter. This is a comedic memoir of the first order, with elements of self-help, marketing advice, parody and strange family history. A real gem that fearlessly goes to new comedic territory uncharted before in North America. It takes aim at a special kind of celebrity, one that is based on family wealth, and one that uses notoriety for both ego and profit. A wonderful book, even a sociological achievement I would say. A great thumbs up from me!
5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended holiday read 29 Nov. 2012

Loved this. Sheesh, Brendan can write. I actually read certain passages thinking, man, i'm jealous - wish I could write like this.

One thing I do think is that, looking at the cover, a lot of people will think that this is an actual business book, and not a parody - this could work against him, however I hope it doesn't, it really is a long time since I've laughed out loud reading.

This is no intellectual masterpiece (not that anyone considering this book is looking for that), but for what it is, its a great and very entertaining parody.
