I found that this book was not particularly actionable, and recycled a lot of content which Altucher has previously published online and in other books of his. Altucher tries to redefine wealth in non-monetary terms, and then speaks abstractly about how to maximize his redefined version of wealth. While it's a snappy title, I don't feel like I learned anything useful from reading it. One major flaw is that Altucher frequently uses himself as a case study, when many of his accomplishments are path-dependent on his prior accomplishments.

This is just the book I needed to read, because society at large has always been unreal
to me, artificial, unjust, and frankly, just insane.

Altucher gives you two vital things in this book, maybe three:

He knows how the game of life is changing and what is coming here.

He understands how to make an income more certainly to match the new changes here.

While doing this he understands true service to others and how your income can and
should be tied to actual help to others which will bring you true happiness and money too.

He went through very stressful & depressed times but had the guts to find the true sources
of these things and correct them in his life to his and everyone's benefit.

I applaud his sense of Ethics and Morality and how it came out great for him.
He ended up with money, but not from Greed, but from caring about others.

This book is a must own one, that hopefully more will read, so we have a better life for ALL.
It can do the same for you.

The Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth is a James Altucher instance classic. In fact, I’ve been searching for over 15 years for a book like this. I believe it will ultimately be worth at least $1 million – possibly $10 million or more – to me by the time I’ve put it to good use.

If you work in a cubicle all day, perhaps at Proctor and Gamble, and have a feeling deep in your gut that something ain’t right, that the college degree and the corporate gig that you’d been told would set you free just isn’t what it was cracked up to be, then this book is for you. Inside James provides a practical, real constructive, strategy for breaking free from the grind. To Choose Yourself. To navigate past the gate keepers and to experience a life of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual abundance. These are the exact techniques James used to create this life for himself. I highly recommend you pick up a copy.

P.S. I also recommend subscribing to the James Altucher Show podcast. He does a weekly full length show, and in depth interview. In addition, he does the daily Ask Altucher show with his wife Claudia, who is also a successful entrepreneur and business owner. Great dynamic. Informitaive. Inspiring. Plus, fun and cool.

James has helped me understand the importance of writing 10 new ideas a day. As a result, I can now come up with ideas quickly and answer clients' questions effectively. This book takes training the idea muscle to a whole new level. I particularly like the rapid fire Q&A where he answered some of my most burning business questions… in a useful and funny way. I highly recommend this book to entrepreneurs and creatives.

Wow! What a book.
I've been an avid and ravenous follower of James' material since I saw him on Glenn Beck last spring - 4/14
His article on why you need to quit your job, which he covers again in this book, articulated and crystallized in a list of 10 items, every conclusion that I'd come to independently. But here's the thing - James' list provided a VALIDATION of those 'crazy' ideas.

Part 1 of this book covers the same ground as Choose Yourself!, and articles that I've read from his email list.
But he's added a few twists in each topic. Part 1 builds the foundation set of ideas for newbies.

Parts 2 & 3, on the other hand, made me give this book a Wow!
A lot of interesting, actionable content in those chapters.
He even opens up on his personal money strategy.
His guidance on how to make Warren Buffett 'your employee' made me laugh. (as well as a good idea).
"Have at it, bank. You try to <bleeping> sell it", with regards to an underwater mortgage, was another instant classic.

I talk to my wife about 'James says this', 'Altucher said that today', EVERY DAY.
It gets the conversation going and ideas flowing.
And you know what? James' roadmap truly resonates with me.
And it makes me feel better and gets me moving.

To me, this book's message is: You're right. We're ALL totally indoctrinated into myths created by others for their benefit. And it's OK. Let's get going. Choose Yourself. Here's HOW.
