Today on the Mental Game Podcast my co-author Barry Carter interviews a hero of his. James Altucher is an entrepreneur, hedge fund manager, podcaster and NY Times Bestselling author. USA Today called his book "Choose Yourself" one of the best business books of all time. He is very well known in the self-help space, but what is less well known is that he is also an avid poker player. Barry tried, and failed, to get a copy of The Mental Game of Poker into James's hands, only to later discover that not only had James already read it, and had even recommended it to his fanbase. If you are unfamiliar with James, you will discover today that not only is he a brilliant business mind with a unique perspective on success and failure, he is also incredibly funny and down to earth.
