Become An Idea Machine: Because Ideas Are The Currency Of The 21st Century

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing book to help you generate more ideas, 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book teaches you how to become an "Idea Machine", by asking you to come up with a list of 10 ideas a day (it's hard, trust me). I was familiar with the concept prior to reading the book, and I tried to generate a list of 10 ideas a day on my own - I lasted less than a week. This book simplifies the process and makes it easier to come up with a daily list by giving a topic for the list, each day for 180 days. I'm already 5 days in and show no signs of stopping or missing a day...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great grinder, 25 Oct. 2014

Great grinder. We had the Krups Expert GVX231 Burr Coffee Grinder until the button caved in after a few years and it no longer worked. We've had this for a few months and it's working great, seems to be of good build quality too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing look at life in Colombian Prisons, 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SMUGGLER'S DIARY (Kindle Edition)
Kendall has written an amazing book about life in Colombian Prisons in the 1970s. It was extremely detailed and well written, and I really felt for the author (even though his incarceration was his fault). One thing I really liked about the book was the prison layout diagrams - every cell block he stayed in has a detailed diagram which helped me to really step into the author's shoes and feel what it was like to be in that prison. If you're interested South American drug stories, you'll love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing guide to creating a better life, 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a long time reader of James Altucher, and when I saw that his latest book was called "The Power of No", I was sceptical that it would contain enough unique content to support an entire book. I am glad to be proved utterly and completely wrong. The book is wonderfully written, covering an exhaustive list of how using "No" can improve our life. The points are brilliantly explained, supported with entertaining stories, and followed up with a list of practical exercises, which show us how to employ these strategies in our lives.

As an aside - James is of course an excellent writer, having honed his craft over a number of years. But the real surprise to me was the quality of his co-author's writing - Claudia Azula Altucher. Claudia's writing (the text indicates whether James or Claudia is writing, or both) is exceptional, and it is amazing that this is only her second book. Her writing is open, honest, funny and insightful, and adds another five stars to an already five star book.

David has written an excellent motivational book. He sets out the steps for dominating, gives examples of people who have done so, and sets out the action required to follow through. Highly recommended.
