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. Listen 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.

More than just a re-hash of the first book...
I really liked Choose Yourself (original book) but was sceptical that the wealth guide would give me anything new. I am glad to say I was wrong! Read by James in the same upbeat, anecdotal style, the Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth has a lot of counter-cultural wisdom in it and is detailed enough to be quite practical; for example the Q&A bit about setting up a business. As a teacher and parent, I see my students and my own kids travelling down the same (now broken) path as their parents, as nobody seems to brave enough to tell them that they need to go a different way. Kudos to you James for being brave and shining a light on a new but exciting path to success and (let's hope) happiness.

This isn't an audiobook
If you want this book, I'd recommend just buying an actual physical copy. This isn't an audiobook. I paid for a book because I expected to hear the book, but the narrator skips entire sections of the book, and says more than once that the listeners should actually just read it for themselves. There is a ton of rambling and back-and-forth conversation as well. It seemed like a glorified podcast, not an audio book. I still gave it two stars instead of one because I did still learn something from the book.

This is not unabridged, and it's full of rambling.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This is labeled as unabridged, and I expected the full content of the book. Instead what I got was a rambling conversation including his wife Claudia. If I wanted to listen to James Altucher's podcast, then I would have done that instead of buying this book.
How could the performance have been better?
Read the actual book to the audience. Nothing pissed me off faster than glossing over a section and telling me I need to read the book for the details. I bought this audio book for those details.
