Blackwell North Amer
In My Vast Fortune, the bestselling author of The Only Investment Guide You'll Evern Need tells the amusing and illuminating story of how he amassed dizzying (well, to him) wealth. Then, he describes the unusual ways he's put it to work. Among his more famous money adventures are his personal campaign against smoking in Russia, which began when he spotted an opportunity to buy cheap TV airtime for commercials; his decision to buy real estate in Miami over the phone, without ever seeing it. For the price of a swank two-bedroom apartment in New York, Tobias realized he could buy most of a neighborhood - so he did. Oops. The tragicomic story of liberal as slumlord; and his crusade to fix the auto insurance mess, which pitted him against - of all people - his onetime hero Ralph Nader.
Finally, Tobias addresses your vast fortune and offers his wisest tips on how to make it and how to spend it.
