Click Here to Buy The 4-hour Work Week: Escape the 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich by Tim Ferriss. The very timely book is by Neil Strauss, author of The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists. If you wanted to withdraw your entire life savings and move it to a bank in Switzerland, what would you do?
Now that I’d decided to hide my assets offshore, the information from the Sovereign Society conference about the government tracking withdrawals and transfers of more than $10,000 applied to me. After all, it isn’t a crime to move money secretly as long as the income’s been reported to the IRS and any other necessary reporting requirements are met.
For more practical, non-fictional inspiration, I bought Jeffrey Robinson’s 1996 book The Laundrymen. So once AIG private bank in Switzerland returned my phone call—assuming that, unlike Spencer’s [a billionaire who appears earlier in the book] lawyer, they were actually willing to work with me—I planned to go shopping for rare coins. While I waited to hear from the Swiss bank, I drove to Burbank to meet with the asset protection lawyers Spencer had recommended, Tarasov and Associates. When Tarasov was through explaining everything, I couldn’t tell whether I was protecting myself from being scammed or actually being scammed myself. I already got the multiple passports, but I am sure I can learn a thing or two from this book. Elise has always been on the outside and gotten picked on and endures school with no friends. The official synopsis does not even prepare you for how heartbreaking Elise’s story is in terms of how she gets made fun of and bullied.
Aww, I’ve seen so many glowing review of This Song Will Save Your Life in the last few days. I’ve seen this one around, but like you, kind of thought the whole teenage DJ thing was going to be corny. I’ve had this one on my TBR list for a while, but with every review I read I just know I need to read it. I think this book might be the sleeper hit of the year — keep seeing great reviews pop up!
Neil Strauss is not your typical "survivalist" and this fact alone is what makes this book interesting. It seemed impossible to get the money from my American bank to the Swiss bank Spencer recommended without ringing alarm bells.
And my intention wasn’t to hide my earnings from the government, customs, or creditors, but to protect it from bank collapses, inflation, seizure, and lawsuits, which required leaving few traces of where it went.
Even in the novel Gone With the Wind, Rhett butler keeps his earnings in offshore banks, enabling him to buy a house for Scarlett o’Hara after the Civil War—in contrast to his Southern colleagues, who lose their fortunes due to blockades, inflation, and financial collapse. I’d always wondered how empty video stores renting movies for $3 a day could stay in business, and why I’d see Russian thugs running clearly unprofitable frozen yogurt stands on deserted side streets.

The best legal way to surreptitiously move money, it seems, is to buy something that doesn’t lose its cash value when purchased. The receptionist led me into a room with black-and-silver wallpaper where Alex Tarasov sat at a large mahogany desk with a yellow legal pad in front of him. But ever since my first college job, standing over a greasy grill making omelets and grilled cheese sandwiches, I had started putting money in the bank.
But I trusted Spencer, because he seemed too rich, too smart, and too paranoid to get taken in. She makes one last attempt to create a new Elise and try to fit in but it fails in the worst way and she thinks she just can’t bear it anymore. It sounded like a fun contemporary novel that I would LIKE but I didn’t expect it to really make the kind of impression that it did and hit me square in the heart. I expected I would LIKE it but I didn’t expect that I would feel so strongly about it and that it would have been such a touching read for me. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating gelato, listening to music with oversized headphones and teaching her niece how to be as awesome as she is. So glad I cancelled my preorder on the paperback and ordered the hardback instead because I’m convinced I’m going to love it!
But since reading your review and the reviews of others, I think I’m going to have to check this one out. I really liked the other book I read by Sales, (it fell into the, really liked it and it was cute category) but this one sounds fantastic. Like you I thought it would be a fun contemporary that I would enjoy, but I had no idea how much it would make me FEEL. I’m late to the party on it as I read just a couple weeks ago, but I thought it was amazing. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky AlbertalliTop Ten Books Everyone Has Read…Except Me!
Even though the cover states "this book will save your life"- it is not a survival manual per-say. Even if I moved it in small increments, there would still be a paper trail detailing exactly how much money I’d transferred.
According to Robinson, it’s because, in order to make illegal funds appear legitimate, crooks will slowly feed the money into the cash registers of a normal business. For example, there’s a black market for people who transfer money by buying expensive jewelry, art, watches, and collectibles, then selling them in their destination country for a small loss—usually no greater than the percentage banks charge for exchanging currencies. Since then, I’d saved enough to live on for a year or two if I ever fell on hard times or just wanted to see the world. So I told Tarasov to start wrapping me up in LLCs until my net-worth was whatever spending money I had in my pocket. After she hits an ultimate low, she wanders off to walk one night and ends up in front of a warehouse where a secret party is happening and she meets people who welcome her in and accept her rather than looking at her the way her classmates do.

I’m DEFINITELY going to be checking out Leila Sales others books if this is what I have to look forward to because she writes a damn good story with characters that feel familiar yet feel so unique. I remember that feeling of needing to blend in during high school and it makes me ragey now to think about how much of my self I hid. I will tell you that she successfully proved me wrong and I felt like I was walking into the club with Elise for the first time and feeling so excited every step of the way. I love that this is not that light and fluffy but touches on more heavier topics and a lot of bloggers could connect to Elise. Everyone I know is super in love with this book and I can’t wait to see what all the fuss is about!
I literally got a stomachache reading it on the train last night because I was so worried for Elise. Even though I said its not a "survival manual" you will learn some stuff (survival manuals are boring anyways). I didn’t want to lose the freedom that came from having a financial cushion and not being in debt for anything besides my house.
Once inside she falls in love with the rush of the music and finds herself enthralled with DJing. Its spirit pulses from the pages, right through to your veins and reverberates in your soul — a feeling reminiscent of any great concert or night out dancing where your ears are still buzzing and the music still pounds within you. The book was written by Neil Strauss, best known for his book The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artist. And I have the copyrights to my books.” I paused, trying to remember if I owned anything else. As she falls more in love with DJing and feels like somebody, things at school seems to get even worse as her past sticks with her. Music has been amazingly lifesaving in my own life and I could just FEEL how it was invigorating to her and stirred something inside her.
Heartbreaking at times, honest and inspiring in that you don’t necessarily have to CHANGE to find yourself but you just have to see those perceived weaknesses or quirks as your strength and learn to be comfortable in your skin.
Understanding that survival is so much more than storage, its more importantly a development of skills. I was a little nervous at points in the book to think this story was going to follow the trend of romance being what redeems or saves someone but Leila stayed true to the title and Elise truly is one of the most kickass characters ever.
The power of music and TRUE friendships that don’t try to change you also really resonated with me.
