This East Hampton residence, on the market for $3.4 million, was the American summer residence of Swedish management expert and best-selling author Jonas Ridderstrale, who penned 2000s bestseller "Funky Business: Talent Makes Capital Dance."

Ridderstrale bought the 2,800-square-foot home in 2010, says listing agent Joanna Craig Doyle of The Corcoran Group, and renovated it a year later. Since buying the four-bedroom house with four bathrooms and a half-bath, he has spent summers there and leased to the same tenant each winter.

Built in 1965 and situated on 0.85 acre, the home is within walking distance of both East Hampton Village and the beach, and it includes a heated pool, central air-conditioning, private guest quarters, an outdoor shower, a pool house and sprinkler system. The living room includes a fireplace, as well as a den.

An awning covers outdoor dining areas that overlook the lawn. The property includes a detached, heated two-car garage, as well as "a lot of mature landscaping, beautiful trees and hedges," says Doyle.

Featured on CNN and in numerous financial journals, Ridderstrale has written a number of books in addition to "Funky Business." He is a featured speaker around the world and is working on a new book to be published next year, according to his website.
