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.

    Story
    "Refreshing in Honesty and Simplicity"

    In a time when most self help books is about lecturing or finger pointing our lack of courage, bad habits, negative beliefs....
    Altucher tells us it's actually OK to be MEDIOCRE. In fact understanding that we are not special at all wether talented or lack thereof. In fact starting from the notion that there is nothing unique about you is the seed of building success. This means no need for a prodigy or a PhD or being Physically exceptional in order to achieve success in life as none of these things really is what gives one the ultimate kind of success. The lasting Success AND Fulfillment! We have kind of heard it before....But Altucher are the rare ones that could say it CONVINCINGLY.

    "It's like having a best friend in your pocket."
    What about James Altucher’s performance did you like?

    I like that he didn't stick to the text and made the reading original and spontaneous.
