							For most of us, the idea of life inside the golden triad of Park Avenue, Sagaponack, and St. Barths is just as exotic as the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle. Luckily, Richard Kirshenbaum has a VIP pass to the Upper East Side and is willing to share the wealth—of gossip. His New York Observercolumn on uptown social life provides a fascinating glimpse behind the gilded curtain into the swanky restaurants and eye-popping vacation destinations where the 1 percent gathers. Isn’t That Rich? features highlights from Kirshenbaum’s monthly column as well as several brand-new essays that exposes the preoccupations of the posh.

"The humor in this book is as understated as it is successful and derives largely from the way Kirshenbaum reports what he sees and hears in the world of the superrich and refrains from judging...A witty, eye-opening collection." - Kirkus Reviews

"Wholesale psychological understanding of the current the talented Richard Kirshenbaum." - Liz Smith, Chicago Tribune

"Isn't That Rich? is as funny as it is smart. Richard Kirshenbaum knows this world and the people in it, and his up-to-the-minute portrait of today's 1 percent is both insightful and a joy to read, no matter what tax bracket you're in." - Mortimer Zuckerman, Editor In Chief, U.S. News & World Report

"America is the richest country in the world, but one of the poorest when it comes to writers telling us how the rich really live. Richard Kirshenbaum doesn't just explain the bizarre rituals and eccentric misbehavior of the class that brought you the 'wealfie' (read the book to find out what it means). He makes them fun." - Town & Country
