The Upgrade Summary


The Upgrade: A Cautionary Tale of a Life Without Reservations by Paul Carr

The incredible true story of living as a modern-day nomad.

Bored, broke and struggling to survive in one of the most expensive cities on earth, Paul Carr realises that it would actually be cheaper to live in a hotel in Manhattan than in his one-bedroom London flat. Inspired by that possibility, he decides to sell most of his possessions, abandon his old life and spend a year living entirely without commitments.

Thanks to Paul's highly developed blagging skills, what begins as a one-year experiment soon becomes a permanent lifestyle - a life lived in luxury hotels and mountain-top villas. A life of fast cars, Hollywood actresses and Icelandic rock stars. And, most bizarrely of all, a life that still costs less than surviving on cold pizza in London. Yet, as word of Paul's exploits starts to spread - first online, then through a newspaper column and a book deal - he finds himself forced to up the stakes in order to keep things interesting. With his behaviour spiralling to dangerous levels, he is forced to ask the question: is there such a thing as too much freedom?

About Paul Carr


Paul Carr is a writer and journalist, specialising in media and popular culture. A former Guardian media columnist, he also edited various publications and founded numerous businesses with varying degrees of abysmal failure. After getting fired from every job he'd ever had - including at least two where he was his own boss - he realised it was easier to write about other people's success than to have any of his own. As the co-founder of two Internet companies he knows the world of Internet moguls both inside and out.
