The Wiz of Iz is a timely and important book about the processes of creating change: personal, political and economic. It’s a simple and powerful story about accomplishing the impossible. Filled with irony and veiled references to larger than life figures like Bill Gates and Barack Obama it’s the story of triumph against all odds. Ultimately it’s the story about all of us and the ideas we all have about changing the world or our little piece of it. On the surface The Wiz of Iz is powerful parable about four intrepid souls: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was a very important job to be done and because this job was so important, Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. So Nobody, did it. Somebody got mad about that, because it was Everybody’s job. In the end, Everybody blamed Somebody, when Nobody did what Anybody could have done … and then of course there’s Izzy. She represents the power of an idea. Izzy’s innate value has been lost amidst the negativity in the Land of Izn’t, where the Repugnicant Ruler has seized control of the reigns of power and subjugates the citizens with a cold currency called Meaningless Money. Izzy has an idea about how to transform her homeland back into a land of positive energy called the Land of Iz. The Wiz of Iz is her inspiration and with his guidance, she leads the Inspired Insurgents on a journey to the Castle of Change where the Wiz of Iz has promised to flip the Soul Switch of Society from negative to positive. Filled with ingenious dialogue and ironic plot twists the Wiz is Iz is destined to become a modern day classic. It’s a serendipitous blend of Gulliver’s travels, The Wizard of Oz and Game Change. Only when you meet The Wiz of Iz in your personal Castle of Change, will you come to understand why in our current culture and political landscape, Nobody has really taken charge of the processes of change.
