While the content of the actual written book Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth is likely very good, this audiobook is not the actual reading of the book. Rather, it seems to be structured as more of a commentary. I bought an AUDIO BOOK, not a commentary. There were several chapters where he actually says " I'm not going to read this whole chapter, I'd really encourage you to read the book." I expect an audiobook to be actually that.... a book presented in audio form. While I'd love to give a positive review of the great information he may have shared, it was lost among his rambling and actual refusal to read the book itself.

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.

Good fun good advice, unusual format for an audio book, like a conversation with a maverick

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.
