5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Eats Your Time Worse Than All Those Blogs & FaceBook, June 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book falls into the Janis Joplin category "It's so good don't ever start." It's really hard not to read another chapter. I found myself reading instead of working. I am buying more copies for my entrepreneur buddies.

Altucher has screwed up more deals, passed up more opportunities, and utterly thrown away more money than anybody I know. He tells you exactly how he did it. As he points out, you learn most from your mistakes, and he's learned a lot.

I've read the other reviews. They all are truthful. Your expectations will become your reality.

So just buy the book, OK? Your Margarita last night cost more. But this is funny and lasts longer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why you do what you do, December 24, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Among a lot of things, Rapaille explains why you like or dislike the taste of coffee in the morning, and why Americans prefer action over consideration and evaluation.

Many of us (particularly academics that want theories published in peer-reviewed journals), will not like what he has to say about why we do certain things, but sometimes the brutal truth cuts to the quick and forces us out of denial. At the least his proclamations will provoke discussion and introspection.

Rapaille's book unfortunately does not have an outline or flow chart. You will learn much more about yourself and the choices you make and have made, if you also watch his interview videos on the 'net.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading, December 24, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Greg Mortenson's failure to accomplish a lifetime goal of climbing K2 led him not to despondency, but instead to an epiphany. A combination of coincidences, blind luck, and the generosity and compassion of those with little resource, allowed him to discover his life's true calling: educating children who otherwise would have no school, no teacher, no book, and no hope.

If you want to know how the world can be a place where no one lives in fear, and see how one stubborn person made a difference, you start here.
