Overview


     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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Living as we do in the golden age of positivity, we often forget that a single two-letter word can actually hold the answers to problems that plague us. Authors and counselors James and Azula Altucher know that "No" can not only extract us from bad situations; it can empower us, heal us, and enable us to make decisions that enhance our lives. The power of "No" doesn't just release us from bad relationships; it applies to every facet of our lives. A trade paperback and NOOK Book with transformative powers.

From the Publisher

“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 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
