It was a decent book, with some decent advice, and then a lot of really crappy advice.
People who are into self-help more so for the lulz. It totalled to a series of thoughts connected only by their originator, so proceed with caution if it at all piques your curiosity. Brutally, terrifyingly, unreasonably, completely honest. Has ridden the roller coaster of success and failure many times, in money, love, success, no, etc.
This book still reads like it may have been copy pasted from his blog. I get the sense that this is mostly just a collection of blog posts. Lists with This Book.
He’s also very transparent and self-deprecating, although it’s probably skewed for comedic effect. Although I don’t agree with him on every point, I can totally appeal to the underlying idea that people get stuck to a paradigm without questioning it.

It’s just not what I was hoping for. It is already beginning to work for me and true freedom is becoming more and more of an everyday reality. Their ability to affect change is extremely limited, being largely mow to making recommendations to the U.
On the topic of “crappy people”, I’ve taken some immediate steps that have happily reduced my exposure to negativity The contents are more scattered than that. You can find his website here. I’m not sure who recommended it to me, but apparently I thought it was a good recommendation and went ahead and bought it.
We will not share your email address and you can unsubscribe at any time. I feel the same thing happens with the process described in the book. Being aware that you need to question everything is commandment number one, including, by the way, questioning what I’m saying to you right now. This is chock full of problems. Essentially, his advice is: My respect to him for this also. He has also run venture capital funds, hedge funds, bljnd funds, and currently sits on the boards ser many companies.
Altucher wrote about in the first 50 pages of this book, I was very put off by his arrogance about it all.
