Publisher's Summary

A small but growing group of today's knowledge workers actively seek a lifestyle of freedom, using technology to perform their jobs, traveling far and wide, and moving as often as they like. These digital nomads have left their local coffee shops behind and now proudly post their "office of the day" photos from exotic locales, but what do their lives really look like?

In Digital Nomads, Rachael Woldoff and Robert Litchfield take listeners into an expatriate digital nomad community in Bali, Indonesia, to better understand this growing demographic of typically Millennial workers. Woldoff and Litchfield present new answers to classic questions about community, creativity, and work. They further show why digital nomads leave their conventional lives behind, arguing that creative class and Millennial workers, though successful, often feel that their "world class cities" and desirable jobs are anything but paradise. They first follow their transitions into freelancing, entrepreneurship, and remote work, then explain how digital nomads create a a fluid but intimate community abroad in the company of like-minded others. Ultimately, Woldoff and Litchfield provide insight into digital nomads' efforts to live and work in ways that balance freedom, community, and creative fulfillment in the digital age.

Amazing story, not very instructional

I’m giving 5 stars because I misinterpreted what I was expecting. This book covers: many case studies of digital nomads, why people choose this lifestyle, why people stay/leave creative class cites (such as NYC), the dark sides, and what the future may bring. If the 4-hour work week is like the directions, this is the proof.

the Self

Delemma of "Self" at an age when basic amenities are provided, renders self absorbed generation whose Personal growth creates exact opposite to his aspirations. It takes selfless work at pittance for survival which makes possible dig. Nomads to play.
