Overview

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER and #1 WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER

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 book 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 Ph.D.;
  • 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; and,
  • What will cause the Euro, precious metals, and oceanfront real estate to collapse—and how that can make you rich!

RANDY GAGE is a classic American rags-to-riches story. A high school dropout, Randy rose from a jail cell as a teen, faced down addictions, getting shot, and near bankruptcy before becoming a multi-millionaire. Today, Randy is considered one of the preeminent experts on prosperity and success in the world. He shares the lessons learned from his own adversity to help people and companies all over the world create wealth and success. Where others see only challenges, Randy reveals how to discover hidden opportunity. He's bold, brash, sometimes controversial, but never boring. His tough-love approach will show you how to overcome limiting beliefs, develop critical thinking skills, and defy conventional wisdom to become successful. Randy has spoken to more than two million people in fifty countries, and his books have been translated into twenty-five languages. When he's not prowling the podium or locked in his lonely writer's garret, you'll find him playing third base on a softball field somewhere.

I love Randy Gage's books. They always challenge me to think in different ways, and inspire me to be more than I ever thought I could. His predictions for the future are scary, but many of them ring startlingly true. But, no need to worry, this book is a guide, and Mr. Gage explains that any challenge can be turned into an opportunity. And fear is what you make of it. If you know any entrepreneurs, or people just about to enter college or are already there, this would make a great Christmas gift. I may not agree with all of Randy's political ideologies, (he puts the &quot;RAND&quot; as in Ayn Rand in Randy), but I still admire his work.

The book, &ldquo;Risky is the New Safe&rdquo;, is the Randy Gage I so loved so much from his book &ldquo;Why You&rsquo;re Dumb Sick and Broke and How to Get Smart Healthy and Rich&rdquo;. I believe this is a book you will be buying for your friends and family. Many may describe this book as irreverent and very way out there, and it is meant to be. Not for shock value, but because Randy believes the playing field has changed so much that we need to get real and be able to change our &ldquo;out of date&rdquo; thinking now or possibly peril. We have seen technology change things for the better and the worse in a very short time and Randy believes that, not only do we need to embrace the change, but we have to get extremely creative and change our way of thinking and looking at the world, if we want to be successful in it. This book will be called many things. A game changer, a look at the future or even crazy talk, but whatever you believe; you will be changed by this book as once a mind is stretched, it is hard to put back. One thing I know for sure is that Randy Gage doesn&rsquo;t say things he does not mean and he explains in great detail why he believes what he is predicting and what you need to do to take advantage of the incredible changes yet to come. Get ready to Zig while others continue to Zag. JW Najarian On Purpose Magazine

This is one of the most controversial, inspiring and challenging books I've read in my entire life. Politically incorrect, Randy invites us to rethink our business totally out of the box. What I most like about the Randy's book is wath I less like, because it's right where my deepest beliefs find challenge. Thanks Randy for so much inspiration, reflection and productive anger.
