First off, there is nothing really new about succeeding in life in this book; however, Larry presents the material in a unique and hard-hitting interesting way. There is so much information in this book that it may take more than one reading to grasp every principle. Actually this is more of a workbook because it wants you to participate in evaluating the reasons why you fail and how to succeed in the future. This book is organized into three sections. Section explains what the idiot factor is and proceeds to prove it. This section also includes the ten ways people sabotage their success and how to stop being an idiot. This section alone is worth the price of the book. The second section explains how to take action for success and action lists of success. The final section covers how easy it is to keep being an idiot and how to avoid being an idiot.
In conclusion, this is a book for anyone who is willing to face their stupidity head-on and change their lives for the better.
Rating: 4 stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Season of the Warrior: A poetic tribute to warriors)
One thing people that read or listen to Larry over look is Larry admits his own faults and to me that makes him more credible. Do people really like to listen to the perfect person give advice? I know I don't because those people are usually full of it or they do not know what to do when things go wrong.
Is this book for everyone? No, I think other books offer the same advice but Larry is blunt, to the point and takes away all your reasons for at least not trying. Could he be nicer or less crude? Sure but sometimes and for me personally I like blunt and honest.A lot of what he says is things I have come up with and he puts things it there place.
Bottom line is if you need someone to get in your face a bit to get you off your but, try this book or CD set. Sure it will there are parts that will get to you but like he says that means you are thinking. You may not agree with everything he says but I feel most intelligent people will see his truth. For example, people are fat and getting fatter. Want to see why? Go watch a fast food joint at lunch time. I saw the drive through of the biggest chain in the world in my small city backed up 5 cars deep in the street and the parking lot full. Do these people not know that is garbage food and helping them stay of become fat and sick? Those are the things Larry points out and tell you to change that.
