I found this to be a very enjoyable book. The narration is very well done and the book itself is hilarious and often insightful.
Yes. It's the type of motivational book you wouldn't be embarrassed to tell someone you listened to.
All of it. Though off the top of my head, the intro and the chapter on becoming an idea machine.
In 100+ books I've listened to, this is the first one that made me laugh out loud at the first sentence. James proves again why I love when authors read their own book (for non-fiction at least). Also love whenever authors go off the book script, which James did occasionally.
This book is great while on a walk with your dog. Just as you start to feel embarrassed by the fact that your dog waited to poop until you were near the busiest intersection on the walk, James breaks out self-depricating humor that makes you forget you just picked up dog poop with a plastic bag in front of 20 strangers.
James Altucher is the most interesting man in the world. I enjoyed this from start to finish.
This is one of the best narrations by an author I've heard. While I read Kindle version of the book when it came out, the audio version was a worthy addition thanks to Derek's great delivery and style. This is a great listen for little bursts of inspiration and wisdom.
No one knows men or women better than Alison Armstrong. She knows men better than most men know themselves. While women obviously have an interest in listening to this, so should every man. To quote Montaigne, "The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself."
No. I listened to the audiobook and I just finished the print version. The print/kindle version is superior. I found myself losing interest quickly in the audiobook, party due to the overly dramatic narration.
Great book, but a much better read than audiobook. The 50th Law, narrated by Robert Greene himself is a much more engaging listen with similar stories and themes.
Yes. The book is all about developing a better mindset and becoming independent.
I listened to this book in long stretches of time. I never found myself getting tired of the narration.
This will surely get repeat listens in upcoming years.
