Just get the goddamn book. Who will write the bill? Sans hack articulation his ideas are alright, and the snippets of autobiography he inserts make the lessons he gives as much about what he learned as his audience’s acceptance of them, though I wish he could have managed this without making himself the justification for the change that he made–basically accomplished by straw-manning his past self in his oh-so-foolish ways.

This book is so full of gra James Altucher is pretty funny, in a shock jock kind of way. Now he shares his experiences on how to get it right, alfucher the brainwashing, and ultimately succeed and be happy.

Just read it on his blog. Add to Collection Copy link. The stuff he swe about is serious, but he gives a hilarious take on many episodes in his life and pokes fun at himself. But there are a few key things in there which I expect to find really helpful, or at a minimum, interesting.


This books gives you a reason to re evaluate and look at things from a different view.

Acknowledge that every day of your life the Zombie Recruitment Machine is trying to brainwash you. Altucher discussed accepted and taken for granted area of our lives – thoroughly review it from every angle – and then make the decision that it is working or not working for us.

I Was Blind But Now I See by James Altucher

Right shouldn’t be the sole purpose in life. An analogy is that of taking everything out of the house and putting it on the front yard.


I listened to his Ted talk and eversince,I have read most of what he has written. You can find his website here. Book ratings by Goodreads.

The content is great. We’re featuring millions of their reader ratings on our book pages to help you find your new favourite book. Nonetheless, he has a very commercial mind and regularly writes conflicting things.

There’s some information in this book that didn’t resonate with me as well, but overall I wax like his writing style and the fact that for what I consider a “self help” book the ideas presented within come from a different place than most authors. For instance, his ‘Daily Practice’ to happiness embodies living a healthy, balanced life that should be centred around what’s most important according to your principles and values.
