I enjoy reading James Altucher and appreciate his sensibilities. I even corresponded with him briefly a few years ago, and appreciated his input on some writing I showed him. The theme of this book immediately caught my attention because I'm in a situation where I recently sold my own online business and concurrently took a job related to the deal, whereby I am once again a salaried employee after nearly 20 years of entrepreuneurship and solo consulting. With soon to be college-age kids at home, this was the right move for now, and it's nice that James addressed the notion that being in business for yourself is not necessarily the end-all and be all for a fulfilled life.

I'm going to be a little bit critical, though, with 3 stars (not worthless, but short of greatness!) by saying that the book seems a bit rushed both technically (typos, rough phrasing) and content-wise, where it seems that James is pulling in a grab-bag of self-help thoughts and ideas, which in some cases are contradictory and inconsistent. For example, in one section, he says it's "easy to caught up in ego..." etc. as a caution and in another "Ego. A real belief that you can be the best..." as foundation of persistence.

James likes to say that he doesn't give advice, just talks about what works or worked for him. Then why drag in all sorts of random advice and examples which don't fill out the theme, in my opinion, and seem wholely derivative in their presentation.

Recently on a long-drive for work I listened to James and Claudia interview Michael Singer, which for me was one of the most inspiring podcasts he's done - I had never heard of Singer, but I've listened now to that podcast multiple times and read his books because of that.

Arrive at work two hours earlier than everyone else? LOL! I don't THINK so!! Today's employers have no sense of loyalty to their employees; therefore, no employee is going to bust his or her butt to make the VPs and CEO an extra few million. An employee today is nothing but a "resource" to be used up and then discarded. (It seems as though all HR departments use that term now. We're not "employees" anymore; we're resources.) If an employer respects me and my skills, then I respect the employer; otherwise, I bide my time and then move on.

Good book. Not James' best, but pretty good. If you are considering reading James (and you should) start with "Choose Yourself" - which is a more compelling presentation of the material in "The Rich Employee". If you are still hungry for more after reading "Choose Yourself", then consider this book.

Choose Yourself brand is very clever and forward thinking by James Altucher.

I like what James is promoting in this book and in general. I read this ebook in about 4 nights and it was well worth reading. I also bought two other books of his, which I expect to finish reading shortly.

This book goes along nicely with Who by Geoff Smart & The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About It. I intend to hand this book out to all new employees.

What I liked in particular...

1) Easy to Read
2) Honest sharing of experience
3) What to do next after reading the book - hint: Join a Choose Yourself Group, or start one yourself
4) ROI - Value for money
5) Integrity transparency

Go read it today, it will inspire you to become a rich employee if you are not already...I am recommending it to many people in my network that want to change their lives...

Some people assume that you need to become a business owner in order to prosper. However, it is not exactly true. 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start business fail within the first 18 months. When we think about becoming an entrepreneur, we might hope that we won’t fall into this category. But we could be mistaken.

Not every person in is cut for business. But you do not have to start business to have more money. The author makes a point key to become wealthier is to have multiple streams of income. First, you can increase your value as an employee by creating more value. Then, you can launch side projects that would bring your more money.

The new economy we live in is about ideas, and you need to generate a constant stream of ideas. You need to become “an idea machine”. Some of those ideas would be worthless, but that’s not a problem. «Give yourself permission to have bad ideas. It is only through diligent mining of the universe inside you that you find the gems that will light up the world».

I highly recommend this book. No matter where you are in life, many of James Altucher’s insights would be beneficial to you.

Altucher's "The Rich Employee" is a great read, at least for someone who is used to his writing style. Altucher challenges some commonly held beliefs, while he pays homage to some established concepts that are easy to forget in the daily grind. This book may not be the ideal first read for someone new to Altucher though, all too often the book's structure has the distinct hint of chaos prevalent when mom and dad are away and the kids have money to spend. Sometimes it gets so bad that Altucher almost seems to resort to rapid fire, bumper-sticker, one sentence paragraphs. Fighting through that distraction though, the information seems solid, and the chaos keeps things fresh. This is definitely a book I will be re-reading over time.
