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

By Ken Goldstein

 This is Rage takes an in-depth approach at explaining a complicated business and the cogs of the wheels that make the clock work behind the curtain appear facile. In a world of technology sometimes the human perspective gets lost in the bits and bytes. It gets lost in the grand scheme of science and what that can do for us as it takes over us. This isn’t exclusive to Silicon Valley; the current business model of all corporate America is affected by the bottom line being more important than the human line of layoffs.

 The Madness of This is Rage showcases the frustration of the youth trying to garner attention that their ideas are quality and it highlights the emotional turmoil of the aftermath when a technology becomes obsolete and it features how the best of intentions of a start-up can go terribly wrong once the financial greed of Wall-Street takes control.

 Ken Goldstein’s debut novel takes the reader on an action-packed ride into a world that seems just crazy enough, just mad enough, to make you question if it is real. Then realization hits that through madness it is highly probable and more realistic than anyone really wants it to be. It is thought provoking and the many themes of this novel stay with the reader long after the book is put down.  After all of that add in the entertainment value as the quirkiness of the characters carry the reader through a rabbit-hole into another land- Silicon Valley, part full of wonder, part full of nightmares.

 With this as his start, we can only expect great stories as his journey in his writing career continues.
