Description de l'ouvrage

7 janvier 2014
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.

À qui se fier dans un monde ou la viande de bœuf est en fait de la viande de cheval, ou votre patron vous voit comme un coût qui l'empêche d'atteindre ses objectifs de Return On Equity, ou les retraites sont menacées?
Dans ce livre sympa, honnête, et facile à lire, James Altucher recommande de se fier avant tout à soi mémé, de se prendre en main.

Plein d'idées qui sont pour moi nouvelles. Un livre américain mais qui je trouve s'applique bien a notre réalité française. Bon, évidement, tout le monde ne doit pas forcément tout appliquer tout de suite : a chacun de choisir ce qu'il peut assumer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Changer de perspective 9 mai 2014
Par Arnaud
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
James Altucher est un auteur original
Il ne s'agit pas ici d'une thèse personnelle ou d'un livre de développement personnel classique.
Il s'agit d'un plaidoyer pour vous faire changer de perspective.

Altucher emploie un ton très spécifique mêlant anecdotes personnelles, constats chiffrés et conseils personnels.
Et c'est là sa force, il s'agit bien de conseils personnels, non pontifiants.

Evidemment, comme beaucoup de livres de ce types, les conseils fournis ne vous correspondront pas.
Mais, ils vous feront changer de perspective sur ce que vous pouvez faire pour vous réinventer !

Lectures après lectures de dev. perso, j'attendais sans doute de découvrir un mec comme ça, aussi vrai, avec ses défauts, mais qui avance nu, et nous donne une force qu'il a trouvé au fond de lui-même. Super-héros !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A MUST READ IF YOU STRIVE TO BE A BETTER YOU 5 juin 2013
Par Kristine Castagnaro - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
[[VIDEOID:mo2Q82O6IDZ0KEC]]I've read a lot of James Altucher's work including I Was Blind But Now I See. I find him insightful, unconventional, thought-provoking. This time he's brilliant. He's tightened his style and delivered his message like a bullet. No pussyfooting around here.

This book is for those of us who have found ourselves lying on the floor, barely able to lift our heads, not sure where to turn, just as James did once (twice, three times?). It's for those who are stuck. For those who are successful but want to take it to the next level.

If you strive to be a better version of you, you owe it to yourself to read this book.

James doesn't ask you to believe him. He just asks that you try the Daily Practice, which is practical, doable, possible for all of us. He asks that you don't ignore the only fire worth cultivating, the one inside of you. After all, he says, you are the only one capable of cultivating it.

I'm taking that to heart. I have my own daily practice. But I'm going to put it into high gear. Because last night, when I finished the book, I felt like I could be extraordinary.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Something for Everyone 3 juin 2013
Par Jonathan M. Prober - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I was fortunate enough to read this wonderful new book by the author James Altucher (I first read his work by following him on twitter @jaltucher and reading posts on his website jamesaltucher.com).

It is one of the most enjoyable and informative books I've ever read, and I highly recommend folks take some time to check it out. It's not that long but, wow, is it packed with powerfully-good information.

I could write about it for a while but, rather than doing so, it is probably more efficient to just mention a few of my favorite tidbits from the book in hopes that you'll give it a read.

My personal favorite aspect of the book is its unique ability to be both practical and idealistic.

Some quick examples:

First, his impressive intertwining of the importance of mental, spiritual, physical, and emotional harmony. Here are one of his recommendations from each of these four pieces:

Mental: "Read two hours a day."

Spiritual: "Do this every day: wake up and think of five people you are grateful for in your life right now."

Physical: "Am I sleeping enough?"

Emotional: "Am I expressing gratitude to the people who are good to me?"

Lastly, a few short snippets:

I really enjoyed his insight into an alternative way of creating value (which I personally feel is an important key to cultivating capitalism optimally):

"The only way to create value for yourself is to create value for others. Exercise: think of two people in your network who don't know each other but you think can add value to each other's lives. Introduce them. Do this every day. Get better and better at it. The more value you bring to the people in your network, even if it doesn't directly bring value to you (in an immediate way), the greater the value of your network. And then the greater value you will have."

I also liked his advice on how to learn from others:

"Don't be a hater! Ninety-nine percent of people are haters. Bless that which you want.

If you want to be successful, you need to study success, not hate it or be envious of it. If you are envious, then you will distance yourself from success and make it that much harder to get there. Never be jealous. Never think someone is 'lucky.' Luck is created by the prepared."

I highly recommend taking some time to read this wonderful author's intriguing ideas.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wake from the Nightmare: The New Textbook for the American Dream 3 juin 2013
Par Dawn Casey Rowe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
"That's when it clicked...if I was going to thrive, survive, I had to choose myself...We can no longer afford to rely on others and repeat the same mistakes from our past...every second, you have to choose yourself to succeed."

James Altucher's latest work, "Choose Yourself" is the new textbook for the American Dream. James starts with a healthy dose of American history, discussing how what we thought was the American Dream is, in fact, the American nightmare--a dissolving middle-class with replaceable workers; a consumer-based society giving us just enough to be happy and not rebel. "Your bosses hate you," James says to those of us working hard to achieve this "dream." James states that as workers create more and more wealth, jobs go overseas, job security decreases, and we're all lucky to have jobs. He has the graphs to prove it.

We're all suffering from "postsocietal traumatic stress disorder." Society's changing. The global economy has shifted. We need to be able to make that shift to succeed.

What does this mean? It means, James says, that the "Choose Yourself" era is here. In our parents' time, people worked for The Man and retired with a pension. Today, we will be controlled by layoffs, shifts, restructuring, and be at the whim of the economy and corporations--unless we choose ourselves.

"We are taught from an early age we are not good enough." This book argues otherwise. We are good enough--we have to use our creativity and entrepreneurship muscles. This stuff works. I know. We are all artists and entrepreneurs. Time to "unlearn the imprisonment," as James says. "Every time you say 'yes' to something you don't want, your fire goes away."

"Choose Yourself" is easy to read, and gets right to the heart of the things we need to consider about ourselves but don't often do. Get rid of negativity. Generate ideas. Recreate yourself. Every person is an artist and an entrepreneur, James insists. As someone who spent a considerable amount of time avoiding the "e" word, I know James is right. Prophetic even. Every potential entrepreneur must read this book.

But it goes further. I teach. I demand students consider these issues in class. James has now written the text. I will use this book in my classes. Students must live these things--"Choose Yourself" is the followup to James' book 40 Alternatives to College I've been waiting for--I'm grateful. This is truly an education book.

"Choose Yourself" teaches on so many levels--it reminds me about fundamentals of creativity, entrepreneurship, and balance. It will teach my students how to be successful, avoiding the pitfalls of permanent low-paying jobs, carrying massive debt, and being replaceable. It will help you regain the balance and confidence you need to "Choose Yourself," choose your destiny, and conquer the world, despite the challenges the 21st century brings.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book will change your life. 4 juin 2013
Par Kamal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
First of all, it's free. But in a very clever and useful way. If you prove to James that you read this book - and he gives you plenty of easy options on how to - he'll refund your cost or donate the amount to a great charity: Women for Women International.

I don't think I've ever seen that done before. I like it. He's so confident in the value of his message - a message that made him wealthy - that he's willing to forgo any money. All he wants to do is make sure that you read it. He chose himself to succeed and he wants to make sure that you choose yourself as well.

Even if I hadn't followed his amazing blog for years, I'd still read it just for that.

Another important thing: He's honest. Painfully honest. Tells you about how he made money, lost it all and hit rock bottom, and how he raised himself through it to become a major figure in media on the internet. And he did it all by going outside the box. Everything he did, he did himself. No middlemen. No one choosing him. He chose himself.

And that's what the rest of the book is about. Working for old corporate, the nine to five, the 401k, the dream of owning a house (or it owning you), all that society taught us gives us happiness - that's a big lie. James shows how to create real wealth and happiness, how to create your own destiny.

Talking about when he hit rock bottom, he says, "That's when it clicked. When everything changed. When I realized that nobody else was going to do it for me. If I was going to thrive, to survive, I had to choose myself. In every way. The stakes have risen too high not to."

That nails what the book is about. Not only does he give hope, he inspires and shows exactly how he did it, the details, and how we can do that ourselves. And it's really well-written and lots of fun to read. Of all the books available to read, this is one that shines.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 A disorganized rant 1 mars 2014
Par Laura Dillon-Binkley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Reading the comments, this books seems to have helped many. But, it just didn't do anything for me. Perhaps it was because I have been lucky enough to have never been in a place where I needed to be scraped off the floor because things were so bad, as the author has. But, there are other reasons. The book is really one long rant that isn't even very well organized. Some people put all their frustrations in an e-mail and delete it before sending or write it all down in a journal no one sees. Mr. Altucher wrote it all down then published it. One of the suggestions he gives is to write down 10 ideas a day to make your brain work. The book is written as though he simply expanded on his various lists of ideas -- there are lists of ideas for starting a new business, why your opinion won't change the opinion of anyone else, how to self-publish a book, what he learned from Woody Allen, etc. This book was all over the place. And, some of his opinions I just couldn't agree with -- that businesses should only use robots instead of people; uneducation is preferable; there is no more middle class; etc. He is an entrepreneur that loves to take risks. Not all of us are. While we may all have a bit of an entrepreneur in us, we aren't all made to be out there on our own starting new businesses. But, I am of the belief that we can glean something from everything in life. So, what did I learn from this book? I don't know about 'learn' but there were some ideas he presented that I do like and think are valuable: we won't get anywhere without giving something back to others (in so many words); I actually liked the idea of coming up with 10 ideas a day - I might give it a try; the idea of keeping the four bodies healthy (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual). But, none of these are new ideas.
