    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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Easily the worst book I have read in years!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A coherent well thought out story/theme would have been helpful. This book seemed to be odd ramblings that were not always connected.


    Has Risky Is the New Safe turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. It has just made me wary of the more "fly by night" authors. I'll try to stick to the more reputable authors in this field.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The author seemed unprepared, as if he was writing the book in the studio that day. More preparation/forethought on the part of the author would have been appreciated.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Risky Is the New Safe?

    Nearly everything!
