“Altucher has turned his misfortune into a source of wisdom and comfort for the despondent.” – Business Week
“James Altucher is scary smart, and also a fount of great and original ideas.” – Stephen Dubner, author of Freakonomics
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 in your life: Choose Yourself.
New tools and economic forces have emerged to make it possible for individuals to create art, make millions of dollars and change the world without “help.” More and more opportunities are rising out of the ashes of the broken system to generate real inward success (personal happiness and health) and outward success (fulfilling work and wealth).
This book will teach you to do just that. With dozens of case studies, interviews and examples–including the author, investor and entrepreneur James Altucher’s own heartbreaking and inspiring story–Choose Yourself illuminates your personal path to building a bright, new world out of the wreckage of the old.
HERE’S THE DEAL:
I don’t need to make a dime off of this book.
The ideas in the book have already made me wealthy in many ways. What I really care about is that as many people as possible read this book and understand this message, even if it puts my own personal investments at risk. Here’s how I’m going to try and create a situation where as many people as possible get this message:
I know nobody values books—or anything—that are given away for free. So, I’m not going to do that. You have to front the purchase price. But, if you can prove to me that you have actually read it, I will give you your money back. It’s an investment that’s all upside on your part.
This isn’t one of those ineffectual self-help books designed to look good on your shelf. You either read the book and use these ideas, or you shouldn’t bother.
How do you prove to me you’ve read the book? Do the following:
Within the first three months of the date of publication do these two things:
1. Send me a copy of the receipt to IReadChooseYourself@gmail.com. There is a kindle version, a hardcover, and an audio version and they all cost different amounts. I need to know what you paid.
2. Chose one of the following to send together with the receipt:
- You can write an honest review on Amazon or GoodReads or your blog.
- You can take a photograph of yourself reading the book.
- You can write me a testimonial or an email asking me questions that show you’ve read the book.
If you can think of other ways, that’s fine too. The point is: prove to me you read the book, get your money back.
Or, you can tell me to give it to a charity. This is the charity I will give it to:
I’m a man of my word. If every single person who buys this book does that, then I will make zero on it. But I’ll be just as happy because it means the message will spread and you, the people who read the book, will be helped.
I know I was helped. This book has worked for me. I chose myself.
James Altucher has built and sold several companies, and failed at dozens more. He’s written 10 books, and then this book to RULE THEM ALL. He’s an investor in 20 different companies. He writes every day. He doesn’t have enough friends. Still interested in knowing him? Here’s more about him..
