"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 "James Altucher is scary smart."
-- Stephen Dubner, author of Freakonomics
"What I like about James is you can tell he came from a roller coaster. He chose his own path to success without knowing the outcome. And... one thing is for sure: if you don't make courageous choices for yourself, nobody else will."
-- Dick Costolo, CEO of Twitter
