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.

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.
