This is Rage
A Novel of Silicon Valley and Other Madness
“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
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
“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
“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
