About the Author

Brian Griffin grew up in the college-mottled heart of Western Massachusetts, where Trustafarians roam freely. A graduate of NYU, Griffin has lived in Brooklyn, worked in the East Village, and hung out in SoHo, giving him plenty of access to assess the counter-counter-culture’s inner workings. He currently lives and earns his own money in New York City.

If you know a Trustafarian, this handbook is for you. If you do NOT know a Trustafarian, this invaluable tome will help you hunt down, identify and communicate with this rare breed of human being who possesses the ability both to fund your next summer's Phish tour, and to take you to their modest mansion in Aspen next winter...

Beg, borrow and buy this book. Better yet, have mom & dad buy it for you for a holiday, or for no reason at all. You'll learn about nap culture, dreadlock philosophy and how not to lose your stipends!

And at the end of it all, if you have learned something about Trustafarian ways, you'll stretch out in the 1000-thread count sheets in someone else's king-size bed, and go back to sleep.

This book is a great read for those acquainted with the breed known as trustafarians who have become a sad and cliched byproduct of an entitled society. The author makes hilarious comments on their attempts to start businesses, etc. I laughed aloud many a time. The pot references were also completely spot on. The culture around drugs and kids who are given monthly stipend is legendary in certain cities around the country where the trustafarians settle in droves.
Moms, dads and grandparents need to cut these kids off! Maybe then they'll gain some character and a much needed reality check. Actually there is a dark side as well; kids who are constantly supported in this manner can become leeches and not even realize-or ignore the deleterious effect this lifestyle can have on their self esteem and personal growth. They can see money as the end all and give up everything for it-including personal relationships within the family.
If you don't like this review, I'm thinking you are a trustafarian yourself!

Humorous.....and in some ways embarrassing. A bit too much emphasis on Rastafarian mimics.
