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

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.

I read this book first in getAbstract. It appealed to me with its simplicity and sound advice. Plus I did need some tough loving. So I bought the book hoping that there'd be additional advice or some points would be explained in more details. However, the author's writing is just horrible - he has a point but can't deliver. He just goes on and on with unnecessary mumble. In summary, read an abstract and you'll learn more from it than from this book!

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.

Not your usual self-help advice. Freshing, contrarian, invigorating. I don't agree with everything said - but for the most part I believe the truth is stated in no uncertain terms: we are not victims in life, but for the most part personally responsible for our own success.
Excellent read and worth the time.

Awesome book! Larry Winget really captures what the truth and says it. If you can't handle the truth, don't read it.
