Le guide des castors
The ‘Beaver’s’ Guide
Just like you, they had been dreaming of wearing Dior, Chanel and Prada, of dining at the House of Caviar or swapping their average car for a Jaguar… Today, they are managing an armada of domestic workers, travelling on private jets and living in palaces. But who are they?
The authors of this book have managed to enter the very closed world of ‘beavers’, those beings who understood how to charm a wealthy target and to work their way up to high society.
Using exclusive testimonies, Jean-Barthélémy Bokassa and Olivier Keravel depict surprising portraits of these climbers. With a sharp humour, they describe each step of the most original beaver’s paths, as well as their tactics and best-kept secrets – until today. Just like them, starting from nothing, learn how to win the jackpot without luck, to get luxury without sweat and fortune without work! Do as Margaret Thatcher, Nadine de Rothschild or Heather Mills did: bet on the lucky encounter to change your life…
Jean-Barthélémy Bokassa, first grandson of Emperor Bokassa I of Central Africa, casts a critical glance at the upper class with which he has been familiar since early childhood.
Together with Olivier Keravel, a former student from Paris Sciences Po Institute and regular contributor to the open information network Agora Vox, Jean-Barthélémy Bokassa has written a first essay entitled Les Diamants de la Trahison (The Diamonds of Betrayal, Pharos, 2006).
