Overview

“THIS IS RAGE is that rare book – a fascinating, fast-paced, really smart thriller. Part action/adventure story set in the wilds of Silicon Valley, and part insider's exposition of some of the major inner workings of our contemporary economy and of the secrets of today's High Tech 'Masters of the Universe' – Ken Goldstein succeeds in making this a debut that will make your heart race – even as it gives you plenty to think about." – Naomi Wolf, author of GIVE ME LIBERTY "I worked with Ken Goldstein at Disney: and since I knew he could write, I encouraged him to do just that, to write a novel. As impressed as I always was with him as an executive, I'm equally impressed with what he accomplished with a pen (or maybe a computer)." – Michael Eisner "Ken Goldstein knows the ins and outs of Silicon Valley – the customs of the land and where the bodies are buried. I would read anything he wrote, non-fiction or fiction, set on that fascinating terrain." – Will Schwalbe, author of THE END OF YOUR LIFE BOOK CLUB "Given Ken Goldstein's pedigree as a major internet CEO whose vision has significantly shaped today's digital world, it's no surprise that his first novel takes us on a thrilling front-of-the-coaster rocket ride through the Valley of Silicon. While This is Rage is surely required reading for all high-tech and deal-savvy action/thriller fans, it is an absolute crystal ball for radio broadcasters who are still scratching their heads as to the future of their industry." – Mitch Dolan, Former President, ABC Radio Station Group This is the story of Investors, Bankers, and Operators in Silicon Valley and the variation on real they’re creating for our consumption. This is the story of a disgraced shock jock turned Internet radio phenomenon and how he becomes the catalyst he never imagined being. This is the story of two entrepreneurs-turned kidnappers-turned anti-heroes. This is business in the Twenty-first Century. This is the unpredictability of the human element. This is rage.
