An excellent read, Randy Gage is awesome! Very direct about many subjects, he tells it how it is instead of what the majority wants to hear. This book is only for the open-minded, or at least those that wish to be .

If you want a slap in the face and be yelled at "Stop being a victim" then this book might be for you. Be warned, this is not your typical New Thought book and if you are trying to practice the law of attraction, do you want be exposed to drug addiction, attempted murder, prostitution and advice that your financial troubles could end by offer sexual enhancement products on your own website? While Gage quotes James Allen's As a Manth Thinketh, his bear yourself on the chest screaminh ''ME ME ME" is the polar opposite of Allen' annihilation of self. Eschew passion? No, Gage tells the reader to indulge. While Wallace Wattles in the classic Science of Getting Rich warned not to rail against the government, much of this book is Gage ranting that he and all of us are victims of government that taxes too much and tels us what to do. Gage assures the reader that a restaurant owner is perfecty within their rights to serve whoever they want and send packing whoever they do not want. The government, per Gage has trampled on these rights! Congratulations, Maurice Bessinger. Sorry, Rosa Parks. What a piece of swill. Gage similarly complains that the American With Disabilties Act was unnecessary because the private sector would have responded competitvely to the needs of the disabled. Anyone who was involved on either side of this legislation, including this reviewer, knows this would have never happened. Gage does make a couple good points in his bok on self esteem, but I wish I had found those points on a blog post snd not subject myself ti this 142 page rant.

I have bought many books in my life, but Randy Gage's 'Why You're Dumb, Sick and Broke' is the first time I ever bought a book with a parental advisory warning for explicit language. Gage does things a little differently than anyone else, which is something I quickly discovered when reading this book. This book is brash, to the point and filled with insight and inspiration. I thought that Gage presented his points in a well thought out manner that really took the establishment on head on. Many points presented in the book are in other personal development books. However, I don't know of any book that has all these points in one book. Even Gage himself admits in an interview that this is a combination of Think and Grow Rich, The Secret, Ayn Rand and several other books and cd's. A lot of it you have heard before, like if you say you are broke, then you will always be broke. However, I didn't realize how much the mainstream media and the political establishment are contributing to our negative, broke thoughts. Most frightening of all, I learned why the establishment needs us to be broke in order to keep their power. I am taking Randy's lead and watching less TV, especially the news. That's the worst of all! There is also a nice introduction to Libertarianism and the works of Ayn Rand. As a Libertarian myself, I was delighted to see this included in the book. With recent reports circulating about Britain on the verge of becoming a police state, this warning about big government couldn't have come at a more appropriate time. As expected, Randy does make a plug for MLM, but this is by no means an MLM book. The MLM plug is just a few short pages. However, it is still a nice resource for MLM people to use for third party credibility. He also mentioned real estate and information marketing as good businesses as well. I must be smart, healthy and rich, as I am already involved in all three. I found myself nodding in agreement to this book. I also found a lot of places where I was thinking, 'Oh, I'm not the only one who this this way. Why hasn't this been mentioned before in the press?' Other times, I thought, 'Oh my god, I am being really manipulated here.' While he was 'preaching to the choir' with me, I'm sure that many people with more 'mainstream' views will feel more challenged reading this book. Bottom line, if you love MLM get 10 copies of this book, if you support the Libertarians, get 10 copies of this book. If you are like me and love them both, get 25 copies. About the author Carlos Scarpero is the host of the Network Marketing Minute podcast and the creator of the Success Duplicator downline building system.

This new book from prosperity guru Randy Gage is shocking, controversial and will certainly shake up your beliefs about money, success and happiness. It¿s also flat-out brilliant. Gage opens with a look at ¿memes¿ which are mind viruses you get in your subconscious mind, that you don¿t even know are there. Gage takes on everything that can hold you back, and nothing is sacred. He reveals the insidious programming from advertising, general media, organized religion, and the government. From the late Pope John Paul II to popular movies, from fundamentalist preachers to politicians, Gage holds nothing back. Further chapters are on how to overcome ¿herd¿ thinking, eliminate limiting beliefs, and develop the millionaire mindset. My favorite is the chapter on how to live your life by the universal laws of prosperity. You may not agree with everything he says, but he will definitely get you to do some critical thinking. He makes a strong case for his points with example after example, and you¿ll frequently find yourself nodding along. His analogy of what would happen if castaways on an island developed a government should be required reading anyone serious about success. The book is written in a friendly conversational style, but Gage isn¿t afraid to get in your face either. This is much more than a fun, entertaining read. It definitely is a guidebook for manifesting health, happiness and prosperity.
