Publisher's Summary

"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 program will help you take back your power by showing 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 fans 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.

worth listening to more than once

What did you like most about The Power of No?

builds on 'choose yourself' I love the personal stories and the honesty when James and Claudia have made past mistakes

What did you like best about this story?

it had surprising results like helping my diet!!

What does James Altucher and Claudia Azula Altucher bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

to hear it in their own words makes it much more real

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes if you have the time, but better to listen in chunks to have time to digest the material

Any additional comments?

well I finished it and am now on the second time around as it's helping reinforce the things I wanted to do

Waste of my time...

I didn't know what to expect from the book as I picked it up by random. Maybe if I had done a little bit of research first into the authors and their writing I wouldn't have listened it on the first place. But that's on me...
So here's why this book is not for me:
- the book is dedicated for people who are at the very bottom of mental and emotional state, depressed and/or on the edge of committing suicide.
Not for aspiring entrepreneurs who are looking to understand how word "no" can improve their lives and businesses - or how they can excel in being more assertive etc.
- weak writing - 70% of the book has nothing to do with the main theme - "saying no" ... The plot is all over the place and appears more like a copy-paste of punch-lines from writings of Tolle, Covey and Greene ... And without the necessary context.
- lots of unnecessary fillers. Really. A lot....
- that said, nothing you couldn't find elsewhere on some random self-help blog summarised in one longer post...
I've finished over half of the book on 1.5 speed just to complete it (should have deleted it really but that's on me again ...)
Don't buy.
