Ken Goldstein Wednesday, October 9, 7:30 p.m. This Is Rage: A Novel of Silicon Valley and Other Madness Former shop.com CEO Ken Goldstein has taken a break from his Silicon Valley businessman life and returned to his roots as a former humanities student to write THIS IS RAGE, his first novel. It's something like Coupland's Microserfs crossed with Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities. Ken Goldstein brings unprecedented authority and been-there-done-that knowledge to this narrative, which has already won such praise as “that rare book—a fascinating, fast-paced, really smart thriller” (-Author Naomi Wolf), “required reading for all high-tech and deal-savvy action thriller fans” (-Former ABC Radio head Mitch Dolan) and “a thrill ride through the circus-like madness of corporate America, the media and government.” (-Author and USC business school professor Gene del Vecchio).
