"Asking the Right Question" by Randy Gage, Author of Risky Is the New Safe
Here's a sampling of some near-future scenarios--and some of the questions they raise. Most important is knowing the difference between asking the wrong question, versus the better one you should ask instead. The risk takers who ask--and are then able to answer--these questions, will be the next generation of dot-com billionaires, political leaders and entrepreneurial visionaries.Questions for Society as a Whole:
- Wrong question: What percentage of GDP should a country's deficit be?
- Better question: Is there some reason to think the laws of arithmetic don't apply to governments?
- Wrong question: Will the euro really collapse?
- Better questions: When the euro collapses, what will that mean for other currencies? And what will those currency fluctuations mean for the value of precious metals? What will happen to the value of precious metals when asteroid mining makes it cheaper to bring them to earth than mine them from the earth?
- Wrong question: How do I protect my brand?
- Better question: Since it's virtually impossible to protect a brand in the new space, what are the best ways to harness social media and web 3.0 to monitor and influence our brand real time?
- Wrong question: Where will we find the money for our kid's college education?
- Better question: Is there a six- or nine-month certification program would be more lucrative to my child than an MBA or even a PhD degree?

Randy Gage is confronting. He tells you what you need to hear not necessarily what you want to hear. For that reason he is not for everyone. Some people just aren't ready. However if you are looking to be challenged, stretched and stimulated then Randy is your man.
This book doesn't disappoint. He is true to form and gives us plenty to think about and what the future could look like. Challenging long held paradigms and daring us to truly think about things.
you can't just read this book once. You read it once then go back and absorb it. Then again to take notes.
I can't wait for his next one.
I do not want to dismiss the value of his viewpoint but I always come away empty from his material.
Hey I do believe in my self, and like everyone who has half a brain can see the memes that are foisted on a consumer society. Some how the connect to the wealth consciousness he espouses and the one that I currently operate with, seems to allude me.
When life gives me lemons I make lemonade,I have immense gratitude for what I have yet. Though I have yet to learn how to get to this level Randy speaks of through reading his material.
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.
If you want to question your harmful paradigms about wealth and money, you MUST read this book.
If you are an entrepreneur, you MUST read this book
If you are a leader (or are in the way to become one, you MUST read this book
If you want to take your business to the next nibel, you MUST read this book
If you want to look at you in the mirror to see you face to face with all your limitations about abundance, you MUST read this book.
Thanks Randy for so much inspiration, reflection and productive anger.

it is released. I was shocked, amazed and fascinated of the vision Randy shares with us. This book is much different from many success literature, it is something different I even expected from Randy. The main message Randy wants to share in this book is to cause us to think. In this book he does not tell us anything what or how to think, by telling all those thing he just causes us to think. And in my mind that is the reason this book is a must read for everybody who can read letters!!!
Risky is the new safe sound really strange for many people, it simply denies everything we were taught to know. But it is TRUE. World have changed and rules of life have changed and now no lifestyle is safe until it is RISKY. Life tempo is getting faster and faster and many people never stop to see what is coming and what are those changes bringing them - problems or opportunities. And in my opinion this is one of the reasons why you guys should really get a copy of this book for yourself and for ones you love. For some of you it will be shocking and mindblowing. Others will find the answers to their questions like I did. Some of you guys will get a million dollar idea. I believe there will be ones that will throw this book in the corner after reading. I think every choice is acceptable, but give yourself a chance to see the world upside down.
Prepare to get a lot of information that is unusual to you. You will choose to believe it or not, to admit it or resist. The fact is many things will happen despite of our will and our role is to see an opportunity in whatever is happening!!!
I would like to share with you my favourite Randy's message: "You must be willing to let go of who you are to become who you are meant to be", - Randy Gage
Enjoy your reading guys!!
