Product Description

Product Description


Happier Than A Billionaire shares one couple's celebration of risking it all for the dream of living a happier life.

In this humorous and witty account, Nadine Pisani shares what it is like to follow her dream of quitting her job and starting a new life under the sunny skies of Costa Rica. Along the way, she finds reliable utilities are not that reliable, quirky neighbors are unavoidable, and tackling red tape takes the strength of a linebacker.

But with all its challenges, you'll learn why Costa Rica is ranked as one of the happiest places on earth--and you too may want to taste the Pura Vida lifestyle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gut-wrenchingly Funny! Aug. 11 2011
By Tammy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What should be mandatory reading for anyone thinking of moving to, or travelling Central America, Happier than a Billionaire is gut-wrenchingly laugh out loud funny, best read with a nice glass of wine in a lawn chair. Frankly, one of the best travel type books I have ever read, and once you start very difficult to put down. Definitely worth the read!

Reading this book is like taking a mini holiday from everyday life. Nadine writes in an easy, relaxing style as she describes her adventures in Costa Rica. I smiled all the way through, and laughed out loud from time to time. Well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book I've ever read! May 23 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Books don't get much better than this! While informative about the ups and downs of relocating to another country, Nadine takes the reader into her everyday personal life and make you feel as if you were living these experiences right along with her. I have not laughed this hard in a long time. Keep them coming Nadine...your books are good as medicine!

I Enjoyed the book. It was quite funny, but slightly repetitive (Deloras). I would have liked more stories about food.

Nadine and Ron are living the dream we all have. A realistic, thoughtful and insightful view of moving to Costa Rica. Will give you perspective on what matters most...... Mother nature, love, patience, tolerance and most of all sharing those experiences with someone who loves and understands you. I congratulate you both for finding happiness and pursuing your dream. A must read and very entertaining

I loved this book - so well written, amusing (hysterical at times) and easy reading. I'm busy reading the sequel and hope Nadine writes more books. It's the first book I've read for a long time which I've so enjoyed,
