Publisher's Summary

Risky Is the New Safe is a different kind of book for a different kind of thinking - a thought-provoking manifesto for risk takers. It will challenge you to think laterally, question premises, and be a contrarian.
Disruptive technology, accelerating speed of change, and economic upheaval are changing the game. The same tired, old conventional thinking won’t get you to success today. Risky Is the New Safe will change the way you look at everything! You’ll view challenges - and the corresponding opportunities they provide - in entirely new and exciting ways. You’ll recognize powerful new gateways to creating wealth.
In this mind-bending audiobook you’ll discover:

How mavericks like Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, and Mark Cuban think differently - and what you can learn from them
The six-month online course that could allow you to earn more than a PhD
How social media changes branding and marketing forever, and what that means for you
What happens when holo-suites and virtual-reality sex come about, and how you need to prepare
The new religion of ideas: How to become an "idea generator" and declare as a free agent
What will cause the Euro, precious metals, and oceanfront real estate to collapse - and how that can make you rich!

Awesome Book

If you could sum up Risky Is the New Safe in three words, what would they be?

This book should be recommended reading for every high school student. Randy hit every point square on the head. It was a risk to read it but now that I have, I feel empowered.

Creative, Inspiring, Informing

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.

An amazing book

Critical thinking and analytical emphasis on contrary mindset loved every bit of it and especially the bibliography.
