Over the past three years James Altucher and Claudia Azula Altucher have answered tens of thousands of questions in their writings, retreats, talks and online seminars. The questions cover the entire spectrum of life but the underlying answer was one little word: No.
No is not only a solution; it is a path for people to heal and bring abundance and happiness into their lives. Every time you say yes to something you don't want to do you can experience a spate of negative outcomes: resenting people, doing poor quality work, having less energy for the things you actually love, making less money and so on. But the worst part is that yet another small percentage of your life is used up by something you don't want. We need the power of no so we can set proper boundaries around the things that hurt us directly. And in the larger picture, we need the power of no to understand what we truly believe in, rather than the stories we take at face value because we've been conditioned to think them as the truth.
With the power of no we can refocus our energies toward living an abundant, healthy and wealthy life. We can realize that there is nothing to prove, there is nobody to impress, there is no cage around us. Such is the power of saying no to our misconceptions.

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 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 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 bestselling 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 New York Times bestselling 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 bestselling author of Drop Dead Healthy This book is enjoyable to dip into when times of inspiration are sparse. Manchester Evening News Learn to set boundaries and how saying 'no' can make you happier and healthier. Grazia
