    Description

    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.

    Great for some but don't buy because of reviews

    What disappointed you about Choose Yourself!?

    The author states in this book that he has a website and and is the top result in search engines for "I want to die". This book might be a great book for people who would search for such a term, and if this book helps if you are feeling like that, then it deserves praise. But if you aren't searching for that a life line, this may not suit your needs. The author narrated the audio himself, and while that whiny tone from someone who's obviously been kicked around a lot may be just perfect for those that need this book, I couldn't finish it. I tried to finish listening because of all the great reviews, but there was nothing there for me.

    This may be an excellent book for those that are really down, and it probably is judging from all the the positive reviews. But if you're doing pretty good already and just want to improve on that, it might be best to pass on this and save the author another bad review. I think the tile is somewhat misleading. A better title may be "How NOT to want to die".

    Has Choose Yourself! turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Only the ones where the titles don't match the content.

    What didn’t you like about James Altucher’s performance?

    Absolutely nothing.

    What character would you cut from Choose Yourself!?

    There are no characters. There's room for improvement audible.

    Choose yourself and don't waste your time

    Well, I bought this book at an audible's promotion but I don't think it was worth the money. The author has no substance, has attachment problems, is egocentric (he writes that he saved Wall Street, and the world, by giving chocolate to brokers) and the theme wonders and wonders and doesn't arrive nowhere.
    Run away from this book. Choose yourself and listen to any other book out there.

    Excellent!

    Would you listen to Choose Yourself! again? Why?

    Yes. It's the type of motivational book you wouldn't be embarrassed to tell someone you listened to.

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

    All of it. Though off the top of my head, the intro and the chapter on becoming an idea machine.

    What about James Altucher’s performance did you like?

    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.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.

    Any additional comments?

    James Altucher is the most interesting man in the world. I enjoyed this from start to finish.

    This must be what METH is like!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, This is the best audiobook my ears have ever listened to.

    What about James Altucher’s performance did you like?

    It was magical. It was alive. I peed a little.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Like a said, I peed a little

    Any additional comments?

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Interesting story, ideas & ways to live your life

    Would you listen to Choose Yourself! again? Why?

    Yes and I will. James Altucher is a fascinating person who has earned it all then lost it all then earned it all again... and again. This audio book has interesting insights on investing, making wise choices, succeeding or avoiding failures in career, relationship advice and a plethora of other useful and entertaining topics.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    James the author who is a one-of-a-kind, self-proclaimed addict who indulges in his new obsession of writing self-help & investment advice.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The author's story of becoming a self-made multi-millionaire then losing everything twice and coping with suicidal urges after going from riches to rags... then again he goes from rags to riches. Remarkable roller coaster journey.

    The author is blissfully ignorant to reality.

    while I can appreciate his marketing approach (self help books) here the author is just talking out of his a**. He just keeps repeating himself saying the same thing again and again just a little bit differently and passing it off as something new. I grew very tired of this guy pretty quickly when I realized he has a huge EGO. And while he tries to be clever and disguise his love affair with himself in stories of his so - called failures his admitting he's a hedge - fund guy betrays him. This guys idea of failure is losing a billion dollars when he has 10 billion in the bank. This was perhaps one of the most dishonest displays of 'role-up-your-sleeves' advice I've seen in a long time. The author is blissfully ignorant to reality.

    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.

    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.

    It's a great self-help, spiritual, inspirational book, which is a good read for everyone. Especially people, who believe starting their own business is a good idea.

    Fantastic book

    Loved the book. James Altucher put the fragments that I already discovered about living a fulfilled life into a concise framework. I also love that the author performed himself. That makes it very authentic.
