Any additional comments?

I read Randy Gage's book "Why you're Sick, Dumb, and Broke" and my life has never been quite the same. I was very happy to see this book available on Audible.Randy Gage uses the outline of a Rock Opera in keeping with the concept of a changing world where disruptive technology will alter the way we do things. I was concerned with this book being a re-hash of things I had heard from him elsewhere and this was not the case at all.It's not the longest book to spend your audible credits on, however, I appreciate that the content has substance. Sometimes authors want to pump out more fluff to make a book bigger/longer but that's not what happened here .He doesn't stick to the text and expands on it throughout. I thought it worked very well. He speaks in a conversational tone that I also enjoyed.Mr. Gage seems to see the world differently and is a creative and critical thinker. I hope it's contagious.

Not my cup of tea

Randy seems like a very nice guy and I can see why people would pay to listen to him, I enjoyed his enthusiasm. But, I was disappointed with this book. It felt like a ra-ra self help book. It also had internal inconsistencies: risky is the new safe but then he gives advice on investment that follows the traditional risk management strategies. He asks us to believe him because he has made millions, but those millions seems to have been made by talking not doing. So it was fun but I wont be reading any more of his books.
