Kevin Price’s new book on why “New Rich” books often do not work is near completion. It is in the final editing stages. It is the first in a series of books Kevin is working on regarding “New Rich” living and “lifestyle design.”
New Rich, as coined by Tim Ferriss in his pivotal book The Four Hour Work Week, is a way of life in which people bend the rules of business and economy and achieve huge levels of economic freedom, even before they get rich. In fact, one can achieve this lifestyle without getting rich. It includes the development of businesses that do virtually all the work for individuals.
It is this huge amount of freedom that comes from this approach that makes it so difficult for many to implement it, according to the author. US Daily Review recently wrote about his book. Here is an excerpt from that article:
Kevin Price, Publisher and Editor in Chief of US Daily Review, has long been an advocate of New Rich approaches to better and more profitable living. Recently, USDR took a look at his forthcoming book on why such literature has not worked for many of those who have read such books and how his book is different. His book points out the real reason “Rags to Riches” is not so easy.
Before we discuss Kevin Price’s new book, one should first look at the expression, “New Rich”. The expression was coined by Tim Ferriss, the author of the bestselling book The Four Hour Work Week. Over a million copies have been sold since its release in 2007. It has received both enormous praise and tremendous scorn. Ferriss says, “The New Rich (NR) are those who abandon the deferred-life plan and create luxury lifestyles in the present using the currency of the New Rich: time and mobility.” The objective is to create a lifestyle that empowers people to enjoy maximum freedom as well as a high income.
The first thing you learn about Kevin Price is that he is a strong supporter of “New Rich” books. He has read most of the major ones and is friends with some of the icons of the New Rich movement. including Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad.
“I am a huge believer in the value of these books,” says Price. “New Rich books work. I know from my own personal experience.” However, Price says they only work in proportion to the effort of the person who reads them. He says, “I read Rich Dad Poor Dad shortly after it came out in 1997, and I was hooked. I had the author on my show many times, and read Kiyosaki’s other books as quickly as they came out. I was particularly impressed with Cashflow Quadrant, one of my favorites in the New Rich space.” At the time, Price did not do anything to seriously implement Kiyosaki’s advice. He agreed with and believed in it, but he did not seriously apply it.
In 2007, Tim Ferriss published his “pivotal” book, The Four Hour Work Week. Price says that the book dramatically changed his thinking on the New Rich model. He knew instantly that the New Rich lifestyle was completely doable. In spite of this knowledge, Kevin still did not seriously pursue it.
It was, in fact, several years before Kevin took Ferriss’ approach, seriously. This books explains how “everything changed.”
