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.

It is with an open heart and also an open mind that I decided to purchase this book. My husband and I have been reading a lot on Costa Rica since we would like to make a move over there in the near future. I have laugh so much reading this book! Nadine has a way to put things in perspective and dedramatize each situations she and her husband are encountering. This book is written by someone with a huge sense of humour and who is not afraid to laugh about herself.

Thank you Nadine for this very special made me realize that me, the little canadian girl can also aspire to live the life of a billionnaire! off to read the sequel!

The book arrived in a week (Canada) and I found it to be an easy and leisurely read. The story of the author and her husband is inspiring and funny with interesting bits of information for those who may be re-assessing their own lives and looking for a change of pace or even travellers with some interest in central America. The writing isn't derivative and you get the feeling that the author is using her own words and is probably having fun doing so.
I have to recommend this book. Nadine (the author) paints a picture with her own colours, using humour to keep her chin up, and there might just be a secret lesson in there somewhere.

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!

Happier than a Billionaire is a must read! After spending quite a bit of time in Costa Rica, I can really relate to many of the experiences found in this book:) Nadine has such a funny sense of humour, which makes it impossible to put the book down! My husband and I are now reading the sequel and find ourselves laughing out loud while making our way through the chapters:)

4.0 out of 5 stars Bold or crazy that is for you to decide Aug. 4 2014

This book is worth reading. It shows the good, the bad, and the oddly funny differences of two very different life styles. It is quite entertaining and will probably make you think a little about how you live and what you take for granted as well as what you may be missing out on.

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!
