He has a conversational ability to reach out to readers in this book. He opens eyes and minds, he shocks on occasion because the masses have lost hope and occasionally a jump start is required. There's no bulls**t in this volume. Answers in the book are strong and credible. Why? Because he's been through what the readers are going through. He's helping them learn from his own mistakes, his misery, his success. He does what Muses do. Muses experience the pain, learn the lessons, pass on the lessons so others may improve. James is a Master Muse of Life Lessons. He responds about love, college (don't do it), housing (don't buy a house), starting a business, cheating, lying, sex, Batman (He had lots of issues becoming emotionally attached to women).
Highlights include: Railing against Corporate America "Your boss usually sucks and some eventually stabs you in the back. It's inevitable.Read more ›
- Building up the idea muscle.
- How to effectively network.
- How to take action on your ideas.
- How to become a better and more interesting writer.
This book should be given as a gift to every unemployed person in America. It's one of Altucher's best books yet (content, book cover, quick read format, humor, randomness, etc). It's also the funniest book he has written.
There is some repetition, but that only stresses the importance of certain topics instead of making them dull. To paraphrase Zig Ziglar, repetition is the mother of learning and the father of action. Building the idea muscle is one of most important and frequently covered topics in the book. I know the importance of this from James' blog posts, but the book gives good inspiration to take it seriously and actually do it.
Another reason I loved the book is the randomness of it. You really don't know what is going to be covered on the next page. Some pages might cover heavy questions like the meaning of life while others feature subtly brilliant ideas like returning emails from 3 years ago.
I'm looking forward to seeing what book James has coming up next.
Going to buy this book as soon as soon as the new iPad is released :)
EDIT 4/14/12: Bought the new iPad, bought the book. Was reading it last night. Blown away, as always, by the actionable wisdom in this book. He covers so many topics, from investing to marriage, all with sincere honesty and hard-earned experience. Highly recommend.
If you like James Altucher, you'll enjoy this book. However, I believe the book "Choose Yourself" is the better one.
I look forward to more from James. It beats a lot of the lofty self-help books out there.
