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 is is like to follow her dream of quitting her job and carving a new life under the sunny skies of Costa Rica. Along the way, she finds that reliable utilites are not that reliable, quirky neighbors are unavoidable, and tackling red tape takes the strength of a linebacker.

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

  • Great blend of story telling and practical advice

    From brickhos
    A wonderful read, gave me plenty of food for thought. Also a good soft introduction to Costa Rica. Highly recommend.
  • Best book I've read in a long time!!!

    From Lisa_marie313
    What a great read! Can't count how many times I laughed out loud or raised my eyebrows while reading about Nadine and Rob's adventures. My husband kept saying "what are you reading?!". Looking forward to The Sequel!!!
  • Makes me want to move there!

    From patnlou
    Totally loved Nadine's book - still can't believe those things actually happened to her and her husband. Nadine's writing is clear, descriptive and very very funny! I know I'm reading a good book when I actually burst out laughing out loud! Well written and hilarious!
  • Inspiring read

    From Jeff Hudson
    I started reading "Happier than a Billionaire..." by accident. My wife had downloaded a bunch of books on our I-Pad and the title caught my eye (good choice on that). A very compelling and inspiring read. Nadine's sarcastic wit is unmatched, even greater than that of Anthony Bourdain of Kitchen Confidential. I did notice the sarcasm started to diminish thru the book as she became happier. A must-read for everyone, but especially for those needing to free themselves from the funk of everyday life". - Jeff Hudson, Kelowna, BC (Canada)

    I loved it and found it so inspiring! I am now looking forward to my own trip with my husband, only to see what happens on our journey. It's been a dream for many years now and this book has helped to speed up the process in my mind. Thanks for the wonderful read. Cheers, Katalina
