Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Really disappointed"
    What would have made Choose Yourself! better?

    This book came highly recommended by a person on a podcast I listened to recently, so I decided to purchase this book. I was really disappointed after the first 40 minutes or so. The author was vulgar and shallow. There wasn't any meat or foundation to base the book. The author doesn't have a grasp of where wealth and satisfaction originates nor how things work in the world.


    What could James Altucher have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I could do without the vulgarity and shallow thought process.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by James Altucher?

    No thanks.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was really disappointed. I must say that I read alot (more than a dozen books a year). Over the past ten years or so I haven't had to quit reading a book before finishing it because it was so weak and vulgar, but I had to put this one down and move on before finishing it. I was hoping it would turn the corner (based on the reviews I read), but there wasn't any wisdom or meat provided. Only vulgar thoughts, language and living.

    "Complete Usless Garbage"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    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.

    Story
    "How to justify being lucky in life"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone looking to kill oneself.


    What could James Altucher have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Provide real content, not some BS ex post facto justification for rolling the dice in life and getting lucky with it.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Save your money."
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good book"

    Good book to listen too while driving. Doesn't require full attention which I like. You can really feel the passion in the authors voice. That's why audiobooks narrated by the author will always be my preference. (For non fiction)

    "All around great audio"

    An audio book is so much more effective when told by the author himself.

    I love his no hold barred attitude, told it straight how it is.

    Loved that he inserted extra content that didn't appear in the book.

    Loved that there were a few history lessons hidden among the current content of the book

    Very relevant and humorous as well. Great job!
