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.

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.
