From the author of THE HUNGRY YEARS, a brilliantly funny and utterly compelling trip through the world of super-wealth.
The impulse to make money is in all of us. But why are some people terrible at making money while others get filthy rich? This is the thought that set William Leith off on an utterly compelling adventure into the bizarre, seductive world of extreme wealth. For years, Leith travelled far and wide interviewing the rich and the super-rich to find answers. A fascinating and entertaining exploration into the psyche of the super-wealthy, THE TRICK is a deep dive into our obsession with money; that beautiful, elusive thing that makes the world go round – and is leading to our downfall.
