The 40 Books That Saved My Life
James Altucher

“Choose Yourself”: My mother died, I was in debt and depression, working a job that would take me years to allow me a life in freedom.

I read your book last year and decided to do what I have always wanted to do: Quit my job, become a writer and live in Japan.

On 11th September 2016 I arrived with my belongings in two bags on the Kansai International Airport in Japan.

I am still in debt and the only writing I do are my morning pages or badly written blog posts. But I am writing daily. And I quit my job and came to Japan.

I chose myself.

Thank you James!
