James Altucher: The Daily Practice

James Altucher is a best-selling writer, and one of my favorite authors and podcasters.

But the first time I read his blog posts, I could not stand them.

His writing seemed masochistic. He was reliving dramatic failures: tremendous financial loss, loneliness, rock bottom. There was lots of caps lock and list-based article writing. The first time I read him, I stopped before I finished the first page.

Two years later, I’m reading all of his material. It turns out to be excellent.

Topics we discussed include:

  • “bulletproof” coffee
  • his bestselling book¬†Choose Yourself¬†
  • do you need to first hit rock bottom in order reach your greatest potential?
  • Poker vs. Chess
  • Quora vs. Wikipedia
