Présentation de l'éditeur

“No” is sometimes the hardest word to say. It’s also the most necessary.

How many times have you heard yourself saying yes to the wrong things—overwhelming requests, bad relationships, time-consuming obligations? How often have you wished you could summon the power to turn them down?

This lively, practical guide helps you take back that power—and shows that a well-placed No can not only save you time and trouble, it can save your life.

Drawing on their own stories as well as feedback from their readers and students, James Altucher and Claudia Azula Altucher clearly show that you have the right to say no:

To anything that is hurting you. To standards that no longer serve you. To people who drain you of your creativity and expression. To beliefs that are not true to the real you.

It’s one thing to say no, the authors explain. It’s another thing to have the Power of No. When you do, you will have a stronger sense of what is good for you and the people around you, and you will have a deeper understanding of who you are. And, ultimately, you’ll be freed to say a truly powerful “Yes” in your life—one that opens the door to opportunities, abundance, and love.

At first i dont really know why i bought this. May be an appealling tittle.
But basically this is just a copycat of the secret and all this new age Bulls*** based on supposed author's experiences.
Conclusion, i say NO to this book, and one of the best advice you should follow is to avoid spending any buck in it !

J'ai beaucoup aimé ce livre qui donne des conseils pertinents tirés de la vie de l'auteur.
Il n'est pas trivial comme on peut le penser en lisant seulement le titre.
Il est aussi possible de télécharger gratuitement (en s'inscrivant à la newsletter) les Choose yourself stories (ou .99 sur amazon).
Il raconte sa vie avec ses échecs et ses succès de manière très intéressante.

HASH(0x9022b618) étoiles sur 5 Blind To Their Own Counsel 2 août 2014
Par Kevin L. Nenstiel - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Around fifteen years ago, I had a pastor who formerly suffered from sexual compulsion. I say "suffered," because his sermon illustrations frequently drew object lessons from his past--very, very long illustrations, lavish in detail and dripping with heartfelt emotion. He was the JK Rowling of recovering Christian sex addicts. One started to suspect he didn't so much regret his pre-conversion dependencies, as miss them.

I recalled that pastor, reading this book. The title and back-cover synopsis implied I'd get insights into setting productive boundaries, rejecting others' opportunistic impositions on my finite strength, and screening toxic relationships and commitments, hopefully without alienating friends or insulting strangers. Instead, I mostly got a painful litany of the Altuchers' past struggles. These long confessions cross the line between relevant anecdote and just wallowing in it.

The Altuchers built their current stable marriage, achieved late in life, on the ruins of significant prior setbacks. James, a serial entrepreneur, got unbelievably rich unbelievably young, and his profligate lifestyle alienated everyone he loved, including his first wife and children. Claudia, a yoga instructor, sought romance for the wrong reasons, defining herself externally, believing herself personally unworthy unless somebody loved her. They tell their stories at some length.

Their introduction, "Your NO Bill Of Rights," seemed promising. In eleven simple precepts, followed with one- or two-paragraph explanations, the Altuchers set a tone of declarative therapeutic redemption. It's difficult to dispute tenets like "You have the right to defend your life," "You have the right to take your time," or "You have the right to silence." Based solely on this introduction, I wholeheartedly agree with the Altuchers' underlying philosophy.

But turning to Chapter One, I got a sinking feeling. James describes a despondent moment when he considered suicide. His young daughter intruded, though, suffering bad dreams; James got her to sleep by encouraging her to count, not sheep, but things she's grateful for. Then, in the silence and darkness, he followed his own advice, realized life's intrinsic worth, and survived. His takeaway lesson? "I said no to killing myself."


Okay, I'm a Liberal Arts guy, not a psychotherapist. But saying no to suicide sounds like "Don't Think Of an Elephant," because you can't reject something negative without mentally foregrounding it. Saying no to suicide reinforces suicide. Why not say yes to your daughter? Why not say yes to your family, friends, and potential for future redemption? Instead of embracing the struggle, James rejected defeat. That seems counter-productive.

Similarly, Claudia spends a lengthy chapter detailing her romantic struggles before meeting James. She fell in love recklessly and often, seeking somebody to validate her existence, even if he kicked her in the heart. Only after several such relationships ended badly did she recognize herself as a serial love addict and seek counseling. Serious self-assessment, peer support, and relearning how to love herself opened Claudia to real love in James.

So, one month into the relationship, Claudia undertook "a ceremony to express gratitude" with James. One month! She's making this commitment of healing thirty days in, after admitting she let one suitor string her along for two years! Recognition of legitimate healing takes longer than one month. I tried to keep reading past this point, but everything tasted of ash, because I realized, these authors are deaf to their own counsel.

Books like this, grounded on the authors' personal life lessons, always lead reviewers into a minefield. If I criticize the book, am I pooh-poohing their lives? I'd like to think not; rather, I'm criticizing the Altuchers' ability to self-scrutinize. They lack distance from the life lessons they describe, which blinds them to certain implications. I don't doubt their sincere intentions, but they aren't exactly taking the long view of themselves.

The Altuchers support their lessons with a broad, inclusive spirituality, a sort of Judeo-Christian, New Thought-ish pantheism. The universe, they say, wants to support, nurture, and defend you. Nearly seventy years ago, George Orwell complained that post-Victorian Christians did well instilling fear of Hell and damnation in proselytes, but turned vague and abstract on topics of salvation and Heaven. The Altuchers find themselves in much the same position.

There's a book called Boundaries, by Henry Cloud and John Townsend, that accomplishes what this book's promotional copy promises. Though explicitly Christian, that book is grounded on solid psychology and science. It describes both healthy balance, and the process of achieving it. Though this book isn't bad, it suffers limitations from the authors' own situations. They probably should've written a memoir.

HASH(0x90547018) étoiles sur 5 Completely missed the mark for me 9 septembre 2014
Par Chicago Book Addict - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I was intrigued by book's premise of making a meaningful difference in your life by saying `no.' To me this was an interesting concept because it seems like so much advice encourages the opposite - do more, be more productive, fit more in, etc. And while that kind of advice can seem good in theory, for me it hasn't always worked well in practice. I can end up feeling overwhelmed and spread thin. I've already been trying to simplify my life and set better boundaries, but I'm always looking for more tips to better embrace this in my life.

Unfortunately this book gravely missed the mark for me in a few different ways.

First, the material it covered wasn't at all what I expected and wasn't as valuable or insightful as what I thought I would be reading about. Though the authors tried to organize the book into different sections, it felt like the kinds of things they were saying we should be saying no to were all over the place. They also weren't as closely linked to the themes of setting boundaries and simplifying your life as I expected. Thinking specifically about what they were asking us to say no to, some of them seemed essential to say no to, but others didn't seem universally true and felt more specific to the authors. Because each only had, on average, two pages devoted to it, I didn't always have a good sense of why it was important to me to say no to some of these things. It also seemed like the book was expecting me to say no to the things the authors don't think are essential, rather than teaching me to set my own priorities and edit my life accordingly.

I also didn't feel like the authors did a good enough job of setting up their credibility in this space. Why should I believe them? Why are they uniquely qualified to write this book? Because of that, it made it harder to go along and trust them, especially since they drew predominantly from their own experience. Occasionally they did reference anecdotes from friends and acquaintances, but there wasn't much substantiation from other places (i.e. academic articles, experts, etc.) to support their argument. And at times, the stories they shared undermined their credibility. At times the things they shared made them sound less enlightened or self aware than the average person. I'm sure the intent was to say that if they were capable of saying no, that anyone could. But instead it made me question why I should trust the type of people who made these mistakes or had these experiences in the first place. For example, one of the authors mentions moving beyond being addicted to love and diving in too deeply early in a relationship. Yet, she also talks about how one month into her relationship with her co-author she had a ceremony to celebrate their relationship. It just seemed odd to me that someone who knew she had problems in this area in the past wouldn't give a relationship more time to breathe to ensure she isn't committing too fast.

I also didn't find the book to be very focused. At times it wasn't clear why the authors were sharing a story and some of the sections didn't link back to the overall premise of the book. I could see where I might be more able to overlook this if the stories the authors were sharing were engaging or interesting, but to me the material and the prose were just okay making these tangents distracting. To me it was just not as well honed or organized as other self-help books I've read.

In summary, I wouldn't read this book. To me it severely missed the mark and paled in comparison to other self-help books I've read. I think the premise had so much promise, but the book didn't fully realize it for me.

It also made me realize I might pass when I see books from Hay Publishing in the future because this is the third self-help book I've picked up from them that I've found to be incredibly disappointing. Maybe they do a better job in other genres, but to me these three I've picked up haven't been on par with the self-help books I usually read.

HASH(0x9022f444) étoiles sur 5 I said no 9 septembre 2014

I was looking forward to reading this book, but the reality was quite disappointing.

The authors come across as shallow and self-absorbed. James clearly has family issues and Claudia has relationship issues. They both write a lot about death and dying.

I finally said "no" to forcing myself to finish reading this book. Reading it made me depressed and angry. Stopping made me feel better. So I guess I did learn something from it.

HASH(0x9022f360) étoiles sur 5 I thought it'd be weird or fluffy. Nope! One of the best this year. 15 juillet 2014
Par Ryan J. Dejonghe - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Boy, was I mistaken! I started THE POWER OF NO expecting ESEENTIALISM-lite. You know, nice message, but without the collective power of heavy corporate sponsorship. When I started reading it, I thought it was weird..a bit odd. It didn't jive with everything else I've been reading. And then I thought of that quote by Haruki Murakami, "If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking."

The more I read this, the more I loved it. This may be one of the best books I've read this year (I've read over 120 so far). Leading up to this review, I've been quoting some of my favorite lines on Twitter. It's a shame about the limited space, otherwise I'd be quoting huge chunks out of the book. Here are some quotes I've shared:

"The brain is scared of reinvention because it might not be safe."
"Don't waste your free thoughts on the other slaves with their Rolex shackles."
"If we have crappy people around, we have a crappy life."

These quotes out of context may sound odd; you may get more meaning out of the authors' slideshow on their site.

One of the more profound quotes that touched me personally came through a story about CATCH-22 author Joseph Heller, who was at a New York gathering of rich hedge-fund managers (even more poignant for me after reading THE BUY SIDE and RICH KIDS OF ISTAGRAM). Someone told Heller to look around and see the people that would make more money doing what they do versus Heller. In response, Heller said he has something they do not. When asked, his answer was, "I have enough."

Another powerful moment came from Claudia sharing her meditative experiences throughout the world; one such was an event with Thich Nhat Hanh, where a sign displayed, "no mud, no lotus". Sometimes the biggest hurt will produce the most beautiful results.

As alluded to before, this is more than other books that dive into "doing less to achieve more". As the authors say, "It's one thing to say no. It's another thing to have the Power of No." A lot of this is touchy-feely without any references or footnotes; much of it is about the authors' personal lives, including dating, loss of self, and loss of loved ones. It threw me off. The authors would theorize something like, "Okay, maybe eat some vegetables. Or, better yet, drink your vegetables." Or, "Never watch the news, on TV or on the Internet." Some of it is a bit off from what we read in the other popular books, but again I reference that Murakami quote. If you stick it out, you'll find inspiration which you've not been exposed to before.

One of the key things mentioned throughout this book is to reinvent yourself every day. Like the co-founder of Twitter Biz Stone mentioned in his book THINGS A LITTLE BIRD TOLD ME, "Creativity is a renewable resource. Challenge yourself every day. Be as creative as you like, as often as you want, because you can never run out. Experience and curiosity drive us to make unexpected, offbeat connections. It is these nonlinear steps that often lead to the greatest work."

The authors really hit their stride at the end of the book with a mock Q&A section. They asked, "What if I can't sit in silence for an hour a day?" They answered, "Sit for two hours a day." They asked, "I can't read 500 books. What one book should I read for inspiration?" They answered, "Give up." They asked, "What if I'm going to jail?" They answered, "'ll read a lot of books in jail."

Thanks to Hay House for providing this book electronically for me to review. I'm adding it to my Goodreads's favorite list.

HASH(0x9022f8d0) étoiles sur 5 Just say no to paying for this drivel. 19 septembre 2014
Par P. Hopper - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Exceedingly bad. Sophomoric. Cliche-laden. Overwrought. New-agey crap that's been done to death. And as another reviewer said, these people do not inspire confidence. Too bad, because the book's premise was quite promising. It also struck me that the Altuchers obliquely sought to capitalize on the title of the popular Tolle book, The Power of Now. In addition to the title, the cover design also seems similar, if memory serves.

Quite perplexed at all the 5-star reviews.
