I am not sure what business model James has created for himself, but it looks pretty crazy to me. I've talked to him about it, but I still don't understand it.
Anyway, right now, he seems to be giving away everything but his underwear. If you sign up for his FREE newsletter. He is also giving away three books that he has written, for free:
I Was Blind, But Now I See
40 Alternatives to College
James is a very sharp person, I don't agree with everything he writes. But, if you read his three books, he will definitely open your eyes and provide important insights into how to survive in the current mad world we live in.
There is no downside to the deal Altucher is offering. If amazingly you don't like what he writes, just stop reading.
