    My Favorite Things: My Favorite Books and Lessons I from them!

    My Favorite Things: My Favorite Books and Lessons I from them!

    Another episode of My Favorite Things! In this episode, I talked about some of my favorite books that I've read in 2020! However, there are some rules! First off, It can't be books that I read for the podcast, which means, I have to look at it, pick it up, and read it casually. Secondly, the books that I recommend and talk about has to provide some sort of value or lesson when I read them! Those are the rules! Anyway, enjoy the list, and tweet at me @jaltucher and let me know if you like those books or if you have any list suggestions!

James is the Best!

I’ve been a very faithful listener to The James Altucher podcast since I first discovered it about five years ago !
It’s honestly one of the best podcasts out there with fabulous guests, inspiring information and James always has the greatest rapport with guests which makes listening so entertaining and I learn something every time I listen.
I’ve read Choose Yourself and The Side Hustle Bible, made endless idea lists taught all my friends and family about exercising the idea muscle !! I love Side Hustle Fridays and James and his guests have even inspired me to start my own side hustles which is extra money for my family !
This is literally my FAVORITE podcast you should totally subscribe !!

Excellent podcast- I’m a “true fan”

James covers a multitude of topics with depth and excellent interviewing and conversational skills. Always interesting, no idle chit chat. Interesting interviews, dealing into topics, and I very much enjoy and appreciate the way he thinks, approaches things, and his sharing such knowledge and resources. He’s authentic and I love this podcast !!!
I would love an interview with David Eagleman (neurologist)

Questions & Awareness ,

My Favorite Podcast!

James is engaging and thought provoking. This show has been a rock for me through good and bad times. You will get great book recommendations and learn about and/or how to become a peak performer across a variety of industries. You should interview Mike Matthews from the Muscle For Life podcast.
