The Official Filthy Rich Handbook
I recently received a copy of The Official Filthy Rich Handbook in the mail, and I was asked to review its contents on my blog. At first I was uncertain if the book could live up to the iconic reputation of The Official Preppy Handbook, and I must say I was not disappointed.
The book focuses on today's modern elite, and of course today's rich are a diverse group. Every single personality in the world of the rich and famous is identified, and all their hobbies, vacations spots, etc. are featured. Like the OPH, it is written tongue and cheek, but like the OPH it also has merit. Of course, my favorite portions of the book are the sections focusing on the old money WASPs and their habitat.
I suggest everyone pick up a copy of The Official Filthy Rich Handbook because I am sure bloggers will one day reference it just as they do The Official Preppy Handbook. In the future, when you see the acronym OFRH, you will know what it is referring to. Happy reading!
