Rascal by Chris Brady is a unique look at individuals throughout history that have stood away from the crowd, went against the grain and made a tremendous impact on the world. The book encourages readers to become a “Rascal” in the sense of leading a unique purpose filled life.
This unique text is packed full of historical examples and an anecdotal writing style that communicates Brady’s message well. Towards the end of the book is a supplemental test to measure an individual’s level of Rascalinity, along with a comprehensive suggested reading list. The paperback version of the book includes an audio CD of a live speech Brady gave explaining the Rascal concept.

Rascal Review & Reflections
Brady has a unique “anecdotal” writing style that lends itself very well to this material. The book has a similar layout and prose to that of Launching a Leadership Revolution which Brady also co-wrote.
This book is a good read and highly recommended for anyone who is starting their own business, a new project or treading into an unfamiliar zone in any field or endeavor. The content of the book and supporting historical examples provide a compelling narrative for being original and stepping away from the herd. The historical figures are presented in a nontraditional and unique way that adds weight to the words Brady uses to assert the idea of Rascalinity.
