Choose Yourself by James Altucher

This is an easy read written in simple, direct language. James is a prolific content creator - he has a podcast, several books, is a stand up comic among much more. He has a very inspiring story of coming back from losing everything -- his home, his wealth, his friends, his self-esteem. He shares his extensive knowledge and experiences with the reader and makes the case that we are in an era of Choosing Ourselves. The old system of going to college, getting a good job and retiring is no longer working. Instead we are in a time of creation, and authentic self-expression. James provides incredibly detailed and practical tools and tips for finding your purpose and acting on it. He even describes exactly how to self-publish your own book, as he did with this one. This is the book for anyone questioning their career path, or hesitating on making a professional move.
