- From a New York Times profile on James Altucher (August 6 2016):
“By writing candidly about his own triumphs and flameouts, Mr. Altucher ‘shows readers how they can succeed despite their flaws, not because of a lack of flaws,’ said Tim Ferriss, author of the best-selling “4-Hour” self-improvement series. ‘This is hugely refreshing in a world of rah-rah positive-thinking gurus who are all forced smiles and high-fives.’”
“A talk he gave at a London church last year drew about 1,000 people, and fans have organized “Choose Yourself” meetups in cities around the world. On LinkedIn, where he publishes original free essays, Mr. Altucher has more than 485,000 followers and is ranked the No. 4 “influencer,” after Bill Gates, Richard Branson and Mohamed A. El-Erian, the financier and author.”

US Today called Altucher’s Choose Yourself “One of the best books of all time” James Altucher: The most interesting man in the world – Forbes
Mr. Altucher is simply practicing what he preaches. Over the last half-decade, this former tech entrepreneur, venture capitalist and financial pundit has reinvented himself as a gimlet-eyed self-help guru, preaching survival in an era when the American Dream — the gold-embossed college diploma, the corner office, the three-bedroom home — seems like a sham. – NY Times
This guy has risen from the ashes so many times he’d make a phoenix jealous. – CNBC Make It
He seems to have figured out the secret of life. – Fox 5 Good Day New York
I always get the sense, when he’s talking about the down periods, that despite the hopelessness he describes, there’s always hope. – Psychology Today
I have just finished a brand-new book, which I think will be the perfect guidebook, blueprint, and owners manual for succeeding over the next decade and beyond…
My new book is called: The Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth.
In 2013 I published “Choose Yourself,” which introduced people to the first steps on how to deal personally with the changes now taking all over the world, in every country and in every economy. USA Today named this book one of the “12 best business books of all-time.” Entrepreneur.com named it one of the 5 books entrepreneurs must read. Now comes my more specific and more detailed follow up. The Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth is essentially all about money: making it, growing it, keeping it, in America today. It’s about building wealth, investing, business, and finance. It’s about the new rules of retirement, entrepreneurship, investing, and preserving wealth.
I have to warn you, however, this book is controversial. Parts of this book will make you angry–at your spouse, your parents, your teachers, the government, and society. When I write about this paradigm shift in America, some people can’t handle it. I’ve had death threats. I’ve had many people who can’t handle these dramatic changes tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about. Usually these people are frustrated because they’ve spent so much time and money following a dream that simply no longer exists. But on the bright side, they are also losing their power to make choices over you. They have much less say about where you work. What you do. Who gets money for a business. Whose ideas get heard or published.
In short: The “gatekeepers” in nearly every industry are simply disappearing: Finance, manufacturing, publishing, entertainment, you name it.
The world is changing very fast and for many it’s scary. I was terrified too. But what I’ve figured out and learned over the past decade will be extremely useful to just about anyone… people looking for a job, a career change, people who want to work for themselves, people who want to pursue a life dream, people who are retired or looking to retire soon.
In short: I want to help you do what I’ve done.
