This is a bold book by James Altucher because he not only gives you a new map for the new financial landscape, but he also has skin in the game. This is the first financial book in which the author REVEALS HOW HE, PERSONALLY, MAKES HIS OWN MONEY. We are living in an epic period of change, danger and opportunity. The economy is crashing and booming every few years. People are getting fired and replaced by computers and Chinese workers. The stock market crashes with regularity. Every "fix" from the government makes things worse. The Old World has been demolished ... and people are desperate for answers. James Altucher's "The Choose Yourself Guide To Wealth" contains those answers. This is the field guide to the "New World" we live in. You can play by the old rules and get left behind, or you can use these new ideas and become wealthy. This is not a book for the faint of heart. Read at your own risk, because sometimes the truth is hard to take. But for those who are ready to hear, James provides an updated map of the new territory for generating wealth and freedom. This book is the eye-opener of the century, it is the guide to building, keeping, and investing your money and breaking free from the chains of rusted, old thinking.

A rambling, misguided stab at well meaning financial and lifestyle advice that falls woefully short. Sketchy advice based on the author's meandering and checkered past runs the full gambit. Advice like 'Keep 70% of your money in cash', is not only wrong, but potentially damaging in the long run. Given the impact of inflation eroding future buying power, this is guaranteed financial suicide. Statistically, the real risk most people face in life is running out of money, not losing it as the book suggests. Long, redundant 'personal experience' insights matched with a choppy, 'from the hip' writing style is probably better suited to a blog, or 'feature' column than to a full book. The material is light, the research unproven and opinionated, and the author sadly misguided. Read this book for entertainment and the author's name dropping experiences only, but there are much better reads out there for those that actually want to grow wealth. Most books by Gordon Pape, David Chilton, or even those from the Rich Dad franchise would be a better use of time.
