Descripción del producto
"Every 'no' makes space for the perfect 'yes.' It's impossible to thrive in an overcommitted world. And yet it's so easy to get caught up--to drain our energy bank account, leaving us mentally, physically, and spiritually bankrupt. Your freedom may be closer than you think. "The Power of No" by James and Claudia Altucher is an invitation to a universe of meaningful opportunities on the other side of 'no.' I'm so grateful for this book and I know you will be too." -- Kris Carr, "New York Times" best-selling author of "Crazy Sexy Kitchen"""""The Power of No" takes a fresh approach to becoming masterful at using 'no' to say 'yes' to life. Grounded in both practical and spiritual wisdom, James and Claudia take the reader on an unexpected journey that explores a variety of ways we prevent ourselves from being fully present in the here and now. Their book is filled with magic that can change your life if you're brave enough to follow their lead!" -- Cheryl Richardson, author of "The Art of Extreme Self Care""""I would recommend this book to any member of the human species. It's bold, empowering, and useful. It gave me the courage to turn down distractions so that I could focus on the important things in life, like endorsing this book." -- A. J. Jacobs, "New York Times "best-selling author of "Drop Dead Healthy"
Reseña del editor
How many times have you heard yourself saying yes to the wrong things - overwhelming requests, bad relationships, time-consuming obligations? How often have you wished you could summon the power to turn them down? This lively, practical guide helps you take back that power - and shows that a well-placed 'No' can not only save you time and trouble, it can save your life. Drawing on their own stories as well as feedback from their readers and students, James Altucher and Claudia Azula Altucher clearly show that you have the right to say no: To anything that is hurting you. To standards that no longer serve you. To people who drain you of your creativity and expression. To beliefs that are not true to the real you. When you do, you'll be freed to say a truly powerful 'Yes' in your life - one that opens the door to opportunities, abundance and love. 'Filled with magic that can change your life.' Cheryl Richardson, author of The Art of Extreme Self-Care 'Your freedom may be closer than you think ...I'm so grateful for this book, and I know you will be, too.'

The book starts with a NO Bill of Rights. Here we find 11 rights such as, our right to take OUR time, the right to healthy relationships and real love, the right to have an abundant and fulfilled life, etc.
Next, our authors, James and his wife Claudia, alternate back and forth, providing stories of the power of the word NO.
We start with some of the more obvious things where we should say NO. We should say NO to negative chatter, gossip, toxic people, etc.
As we progress through the book, we get into a bit more of the new age kind of thinking such as how saying NO to certain things helps with “mindset, abundance, gratitude, vibration” and all the familiar terms bandied about in the personal development space.
Some chapters offer practice exercises at the end. One that I found of value was Claudia’s tips for “being still.” I continue to practice meditation, but my mind races like the Energizer Bunny, so I’m still a work in progress. Claudia offers a couple of new suggestions that I’ll likely give a whirl.
This is a simple book and you might have 2-3 hours in total to get front to back. It’s extremely helpful information but most of it I’ve come across from prior reading. I desperately could have used the insight on the power of saying NO about 10 years ago, but seeing as this was only written in 2014, that was impossible!
Amazon gives this one 4.5 stars after 280 reviews. Goodreads is less generous with 3.55 stars after 952 ratings and 88 reviews.
This is my first Altucher experience and I read that Choose Yourself is a good one from James. I really enjoyed this one, especially the authenticity of authors, their willingness to share their vulnerabilities, and some of their darker days.
I give it 4 stars and I highly recommend it for anyone who needs to learn to say NO!

What this book contains is some very random thoughts spread out in an illogical way through way too many pages. You can tell that James Altucher is a high-level thinker, but he puts far too much emphasis on big words and weird theories. There's a lot of talk about God and spiritualism in this book as well, which turned me off.
He seems to be very good at telling his own life story a ton of different ways. He likes to brag. I've never read anything of his, but this is the conclusion I've drawn from reading just this book. Suffice it to say that I probably won't spend money on something of his again.
Were there a few things I learned? Yes. But this book has a very abstract way of approaching the subject that wasn't fun, easy-to-digest, or even interesting. I don't give many negative book reviews, but this one frankly deserved it.
“It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.” -Bruce Lee
I liked this so much on my Kindle, I bought a paperback copy to use as a reference for all the exercises included to get us unstuck. In my case it wasn't a failure, job lose or rejection, but the death of my spouse. I spent over two years living in the things that had to be completed before I could truly move ahead without him. Living in what I believed had to be done had me stuck, as well as trying to appease others. After just a few days of following the guidance provided in the book, I woke up early, set to get moving on the projects that I had put on hold to care for others. Read it, use it, and things will change!
