I am the author of "The Education of Millionaires: It’s Not What You Think, and It’s Not Too Late," published by Penguin/Portfolio in fall 2011. I also write a blog on entrepreneurialism, career development, and education at Forbes.com.
For "The Education of Millionaires," I interviewed some of the most successful self-made people on the planet who didn’t complete college and who educated themselves in the real world, to deconstruct their secrets and create a “Syllabus for a Successful Life” based on what I learned from them.
I was born in San Francisco in 1977, grew up in Berkeley, and graduated from Brown University in 1999. I live in New York with my wife Jena la Flamme.
