Ken Goldstein's groundbreaking and conversation-starting novel THIS IS RAGE (published October 8, 2013) is getting tremendous advance attention: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’ KenGoldstein 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 LIBERTYI 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 EisnerKen 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, nonfiction or fiction, set on that fascinating terrain.” Will Schwalbe, author of THE END OF YOUR LIFE BOOK CLUBGiven 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 GroupKen Goldstein has written a modern-day blockbuster! Smart, insightful, and engaging, the story takes us on a thrill ride through the circus-like madness of corporate American, the media, and government. It reveals with stunning clarity the inept and all-too-sinister characters that inhabit these worlds. You cannot help but think that Goldstein has had a front row seat and used his real life experiences to masterfully weave a fictional narrative that enlightens as much as it entertains. A must read.” Gene Del Vecchio, author of CREATING BLOCKBUSTERS! and Adjunct Professor, USC Marshall School of BusinessIn this extract from THIS IS RAGE, we meet Kimo Balthazar one of the most unforgettable new characters in fiction as he begins an odyssey that will have a profound impact on the American landscape.
