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.Read more ›
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...
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.
