The world is changing. Markets have crashed. Jobs have disappeared. Industries have been disrupted and are being remade before our eyes. Everything we aspired to for "security," everything we thought was "safe," no longer is: College. Employment. Retirement. Government. It’s all crumbling down.
In every part of society, the middlemen are being pushed out of the picture. No longer is someone coming to hire you, to invest in your company, to sign you, to pick you. It’s on you to make the most important decision in your life: Choose Yourself.
New tools and economic forces have emerged to make it possible for individuals to create art, make millions of dollars, and change the world without "help." More and more opportunities are rising out of the ashes of the broken system to generate real inward success (personal happiness and health) and outward success (fulfilling work and wealth).
This audiobook will teach you to do just that. With dozens of case studies, interviews and examples - including the author, investor and entrepreneur James Altucher's own heartbreaking and inspiring story - Choose Yourself illuminates your personal path to building a bright, new world out of the wreckage of the old.

I love this book because it is about me..and
thinking about my life and actuality being funny and entertaining.
Yes, This is the best audiobook my ears have ever listened to.
It was magical. It was alive. I peed a little.
Like a said, I peed a little
When the author reads the book its always better. When the author PERFORMS the book, it makes it magical. This book is Magical. Its alive and very interesting. This will be the gold standard of Audiobooks.
Ive been telling James to do this for 3 years. Thank you for finally listening!
Anyone looking to kill oneself.
Provide real content, not some BS ex post facto justification for rolling the dice in life and getting lucky with it.
Anger and disappointment. Don't get me wrong. I'm happy the author has lived such a roller coaster of a life, and he's doing well for himself. But the book is absent of content as it's just one big appeal to emotion.
The book is basically an autobiography where the author is trying to convince himself why he should feel good about rolling the dice in life.
I can't believe I wasted time an money on this book. Unless you're suffering from depression and can't get out of your own way, this book isn't very helpful... if even for that. Perhaps good for those just starting their career, but if you've been around the block it's disappointing coming from someone who's made millions. Lots of fluff.On the other hand... good for Mr. Altucher for the great marketing of this book.
The beginning of the end. Our world has changed irreversibly, but many choose to tenaciously cling to the bill of goods our parents were sold. James has two words for you... Choose Yourself. And, then he slow walks the reader, or in this case listener, from insight to insight on how to live a life by design.
This is one of the worst books I ever read. The author just goes on and on, but doesn't really go into any advice of any substance. There is nothing new or of any real substance in this book. Thank God for Amazons return policy.
I love audible books. I can paint, run errands and clean my house while listening to a book. The best.
James Altucher should not narrate. He talks too fast. He has great advice but his pace was so fast it was hard to listen to at times. So good content but bad narration.
The author read the book and was fairly self deprecating throughout the book. The information presented in the book if pretty basic but may be a wakeup call to some people.
If the book wasn't free I would never had picked it up. I know the author wants to help people but this book is not that great.
