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
    "Excellent, Motivational + Real"
    What did you love best about Choose Yourself!?

    Choose Yourself really brings you inside of James Altucher's perspective. He speaks candidly and honestly, without formulaic and deliberately scripted cadence. Having an author narrate his own book from the heart is powerful, because he has the power to enunciate the specific words he chooses, in the way he sees fit, to deepen your comprehension as a listener.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Altucher has no reason to hold back and nothing to hide. Because of this, the story reads with sincerity. I love hearing the truth of the worst parts of his life thus far - like spending Thanksgiving alone eating a turkey sandwich and making up stories that he's a psychic on Craigslist just because he needed to feel the connection at such a low point in his life.

    Everyone wants to be the millionaire but nobody talks about the struggle.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The concept of Idea-Sex is my favorite. Since learning this tip, sometimes I cannot think straight without creating a list.


    What did you learn from Choose Yourself! that you would use in your daily life?

    There's a concept... well, an exercise where you make a list of 10 things daily. I have been making it a point to get this list done on a more consistent basis.

    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.

    "Really"
    Would you try another book from James Altucher and/or James Altucher?

    no


    Would you recommend Choose Yourself! to your friends? Why or why not?

    no


    Would you listen to another book narrated by James Altucher?

    no


    Do you think Choose Yourself! needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    This may appeal to the younger generation more as there is too much swearing and the political stances really doesn't need to be part of this. the author doesn't really seem to be reading what is written, instead he ad-libs in the audio book. Mixed feeling about that. Almost like listening to talk radio.

    "Wonderful and powerful redirection"

    The narrator was excellent. He had a funny yet insightful way of expressing himself loved hearing stories that were not in the book.

    Very thought provoking. Made me decide to Choose Myself, and to let go of the rope... Of trying to meet everyone's expectations. Also, encouraged me to live my own life and stop judging or having an opinion about everything and everybody I encounter.

    "Impressive book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Choose Yourself! to be better than the print version?

    Definitely. Because James is reading it. This is as good as an audio book can get.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Choose Yourself!?

    He wanders away from the script and is just himself. Makes you feel like you and James are chatting rather than you reading a book.


    Which character – as performed by James Altucher – was your favorite?

    Himself! :)


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    No BS recipe to taking your life in your own hands.


    Any additional comments?

    Love. This. Book. Buy it.

    "I listened to this in one day"

    James Altucher's observations on life are some of my favorites.

    Only downside is that now I'm slightly worried James might continue his daily practice forever and one day he will run out of stories to tell about his failures.

    Maybe it's time I choose to make my own?

    Story
    "Rambly in a good way."

    I'm not a hard core reader of James, and this is my first of his books to read. Just as what I've picked up from his posts on Facebook and Quora. I found him to be authentic, with simple but useful tips. You may have heard them before, but the context of using them to break free of pay-your-dues-to-be-chosen living is fresh. Thanks, James!

    "I really enjoyed this book"

    Not what I would have expected, was slightly turned off by his reading but a friend had read it and recommended it. Glad I stuck with it! He's really down to earth and his advice and stories are sensible.
