Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Lot of talk no knowledge"

    This book is as exactly as promised a long drawn out speech, with little to no examples on how to make a business better.

    "The Narrator Made this Unbearable"

    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.

    "Pretty good"

    I thought is was a decent book. Not life changing but made some good points. I will probably also read "risky is the new safe"

    "This is Randy's best book to date"

    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.

    "Pumped! This book is a legal alternative to meth."

    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!

    "Thought provoking"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. If they aren't critical thinkers, they need to become.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mad Genius?

    Randy chuckling at his own words and bringing humanity to the read.


    What about Randy Gage’s performance did you like?

    It's like having a conversation


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I didn't make it. But I would have listened in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Add to your must read list.

    "Fascinating and inspiring!"

    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!
