  • 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.”

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

Following on the footsteps of the National Best Seller Choose Yourself, sold to 11 countries, James Altucher is back with the revealing, funny, and embarrassing stories from his own life that show that even in the worst case scenario there is always a way towards reinvention and happiness. 

The world is changing. Markets have crashed. Jobs have disappeared. Industries have been disrupted and are being remade before our eyes. Everything we aspired to for “security,” everything we thought was “safe,” no longer is: College. Employment. Retirement. Government. It’s all crumbling down. In every part of society, the middlemen are being pushed out of the picture. No longer is someone coming to hire you, to invest in your company, to sign you, to pick you. It’s on you to make the most important decision of your life: Choose Yourself.
