He is the co-author of the business book Trading Up: The New American Luxury, which was a Business Week bestseller. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California. He is a graduate of Williams College and Harvard Business School. He has three sons-- McNeil , Parker, and Tattinger. In a 2011 issue of "Time Magazine", Parker was called a "creative genius on the sure path to become this generations Fitzgerald". McNeil, however, was labeled by the author as "completely average". So average in fact that it remains a mystery how he could be related to his brother, Parker, who, time and time again, displays intellectual agility that is typical of young and brilliant minds.
