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!

    About the Author-
    • 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.
