This is a manifesto about ideas. Big ideas, small ideas, and outlandish ideas. Ideas that innovate, ideas that disrupt markets, and especially ideas that irritate. More than ideas, though, Mad Genius is about how ideas are born and the role they play in entrepreneurial thinking.
This is a manifesto for managers who want to become leaders and leaders who want to blow up mediocrity. Because whether you work in a traditional business, a nonprofit service organization, or the public sector, the best way to create fresh and innovative solutions is to think like an entrepreneur.

"Randy Gage is truly a genius - and entrepreneurs would be mad not to follow his stellar advice. Make your first mastermind alliance with this remarkable book." (Harvey Mackay, author of the number-one New York Times best seller Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive)
"A big and brave kick-start for anyone set to make their entrepreneurial dreams come true." (Robin Sharma, number-one best-selling author of The Leader Who Had No Title)
"This book is effin' great! Teaches not only a mindset, but gives you hope, inspiration, and challenges them at the same time. I love every part of it." (Larry Winget, author of Grow a Pair and five other international best sellers)
The Wisconsin accent of the narrator was just too much for me. I know, that sounds awful, but it quickly became grating and I couldn't get past the first five minutes. I may look into the digital book instead, as the info was interesting.
I've read all of Randy's books so far and although I think Risky is the New Safe was tremendously good, I'm certain this one is even better. Although if you haven't, I suggest you read Risky... Before you pick this one up; it will make more sense that way I think.
And Randy's narration makes it even better.
I could not put this book down the first time I played it!
Randy does a stellar job inspiring "thermal fucking nuclear" levels of creative genius in his read of this book.
He's filled it with just the right amount of guidance, examples, and quotables. Thanks Randy!
Yes. If they aren't critical thinkers, they need to become.
Randy chuckling at his own words and bringing humanity to the read.
It's like having a conversation
Yes. I didn't make it. But I would have listened in one sitting.
Add to your must read list.
What else could you expect from Randy Gage? The entrepreneurs who'll not use their critical thinking skills will be quickly left behind. The world desperately needs fresh thinking and new ways to do things, and we can all be a part of it with the right thinking. This is some high quality food for your mind, so don't even hesitate about investing your time and money on it!
