Editorial Reviews

Review

' Inspirational and to the point, this book is a 10 out of 10' (Spirit & Destiny, July 2011).

From the Back Cover

This book won't make you feel better about yourself. And that's a good thing.

If you're hoping to change your life with a bunch of feel-good mantras, then this book isn't for you. But if you're ready to get off your butt and really change your life, then Larry Winget is your man. Winget's tough-love approach boils success down to a simple formula: your life is your own damn fault, and if you shut up, stop whining, and take action, your life will get better.

Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get a Life gives you the keys to turning your life, money, and business around. Larry's brutal advice has changed the lives of millions of people around the world. This Second Edition expands the previous lessons with brand-new examples, stories, and added wisdom, and his humorous approach is funnier than ever!

"If you're ready to stop your whining, strap on your belt, and get to work, then this is the book for you. Larry wants to see you succeed, and he's not afraid to rub some reality in your face to help you do it!"—Jim Bouchard, author ofThink Like a Black Belt

"I love Larry's dish on life: a healthy approach to setting you straight!"—Marzia Prince, professional fitness model

"Filled with straight talk and straight answers, Larry's honest approach is a brutally refreshing retreat from all of the esoteric blather that the so-called gurus preach." —Tommy Zarzecki, Publisher, PlanetZMan.com

It's a decent book but it's a bit repetitive.
Diana Hughes
I have read all of Larry's books and have taken away good advice from each of them.
Donna
This book reminds me of the many ways we lose sight of what is important in life.

This is my new favorite book. Larry tells it like it is and pulls no punches. It's about taking personal responsibility for you life. I purchased one for a friend's son who just graduated High School and one for my 40 year old daughter. I wish I had read it when I had graduated from High School. It would have saved me years of hard life lessons. After 65 years I have come to the same conclusions as Winget talks about in this book. Many young people today expect that they are going to be taken care of forever, either by parents or by the government. When they finally have to confront the hard facts of life they are in for a shock. Read about it in Shut Up and take control of your life and be prepared before the shock of reality kicks you in the butt. Highly recommended.

This book reminds me of the many ways we lose sight of what is important in life. It is a pep talk and a stern talking to at the same time. It helped me remember those lessons of life that I had forgotten. No one but yourself can make you happy. Don't wait for someone else to get started, get going and make money (life) happen.

As a 56-year-0ld woman with two girls in college, I felt like my life needed to switch gears. I wasn't getting too far except thinking it over until I read this great book. Larry Winget is a no excuses type of person who urges you to stop making excuses and to start following a game plan. I really needed a kick in the butt by this no-nonsense writer. He really knows what he is talking about. By reading this book I took some definite action to start changing my life. I felt like months would just drift by before and now I have control again. Just remember, feeling uncomfortable is good and will lead you to change. I had been feeling uncomfortable for awhile. Realizing this was okay helped me move forward. Don't take the easy way out or expect magic pills to cure your ills, read this book and transform yourself! I plan to! I have read all of Larry's books and have
taken away good advice from each of them. Quit dreaming and get going!

If you want to cut through the junk and learn some real life helpful information about improving your life and your relationships, this is the book for you. The section on "Getting Smarter" was especially good. This book discusses what most of us don't want to hear but need to know and what others want to say but won't. At least one section will hit home and probably more than one. Worth reading and even more worthwhile to actually do something with the information.

This book is an "in your face" reality check. It is full practical advice that should be common sense to all us, but sometimes you need someone else to point out the obvious. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve their life. You will find that all the excuses you have for not having any money, for not losing weight, or for not having a better relationship with family and friends no longer apply.
