Kurt Opprecht is the author of The Billionaires’ Manifesto, and editor of How to Rule the World for Fun and Profit. As a journalist based in New York City and New Orleans, he has written for The New York Times, The Daily Beast, The Economist, The Sun, numerous other publications, and more corporate clients than he’d like to admit. His play, Dos Coyotes, ran at the Manhattan Repertory Theater in 2012.
Kurt studied communications and competed in debate at Southern Utah University, then transferred to Reed College, where he completed his BA in philosophy. He spent four years in Tokyo, working as a radio DJ, actor, writer, and teacher before moving back to the US. He teaches writing for NYU's School of Professional Studies.
His latest novel, Playing With Fire, is a journey into the jungles of Thailand, the heart of Pandora, and the soul of the Promethean prank.
