Skip the Line

The Ingenious, Simple Strategies to Propel Yourself to Wealth, Success and Happiness




The no bullshit guide to skipping the line for a successful life, no matter where you're starting from, by James Altucher - once total failure, now creator of a $60m business.

The 10,000-hour rule isn't the only way to achieve mastery. Entrepreneur, angel investor and bestselling author James Altucher reveals a new mindset and proven toolkit that will empower anybody to quickly acquire the skills they need to succeed and achieve their dreams.

We live in a hierarchical world where experience has traditionally been the key to promotion. But that period is over! Straight, clear-cut career trajectories no longer exist. Industries disappear, job descriptions change, and people's interests and passions evolve. The key to riding this wave is to constantly be curious about what's next, to be comfortable with uncertainty so you can keep navigating the rough waters ahead, and most importantly, to pursue the things that interest you.

In Skip the Line, James reveals how he went from struggling and depressed to making his personal, financial, and creative dreams come true. While showing you how to approach change and crisis, he gives you tools to help easily execute ideas, become an expert negotiator, attract the attention of those around you, scale promising ideas, and improve leadership - which will catapult you higher than you ever thought possible and at a speed that everyone will tell you is impossible.
