Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

With a writing style best described as full-throttle rant, the host of the A&E reality show Big Spender reveals the naked truth about careers, the employer/employee relationship, management skills, productivity and pay. Declaring at the outset that "there will be parts of this book you won't like," while daring readers to continue, Winget (Shut Up, Stop Whining & Get a Life) sets a high threshold for delivering a likable, useful book that will educate and promote behavioral changes. Yet he delivers. His brutal frankness about what's wrong with how businesses—big and small—operate offers a refreshing contrast to other career counseling and management books—even the gray area of ethics is delivered in black and white. In a section titled "What Happened to You?" he reminds readers of what it means to accept a job: "No work—no pay. No work—no job." Companies, as he repeatedly stresses, exist to make a profit, not to make their employees happy or feel fulfilled. Winget's advice is solid: delivering results is the most fulfilling career move one can make. (Jan.)

Review

“Larry Winget simultaneously takes on everyone from smart-ass employees and motivational speakers to bad service, bad salespeople and bad bosses. It's not a fair fight. Winget has an unfair advantage - he tells the truth and doesn't give a damn if you like it or not. But like it or hate it, Larry will challenge you to be as amazing as you know you are.”
—Joe Calloway, author of Work Like You're Showing Off!

“Thin skinned? No sense of humor? Don't read this book! I warned you. On the other hand, if you want to read a book that cuts through the normal fluff and challenges you personally, then pay attention: Larry Winget will irritate you to be a better employee and a better person.”

—Mark Sanborn, CSP, CPAE, President, Sanborn & Associates, Inc., author of The Fred Factor

“Winget sets a high threshold for delivering a likeable, useful book that will educate and promote behavioral changes.  He delivers…Winget’s advice is solid: delivering results is the most fulfilling career move one can make.”

Format: Hardcover
I have read every one of Larry Winget's books. His common sense approach to life is refreshing. Unfortunately is it also lacking in today's workplace, with the "what's in it for me" attitude being the norm. Companies exist for one reason, and one reason only, to make a profit. Either you are an asset to your employer or you are a liability. Thank you Larry for telling it like it is. Follow his advise and you will be far ahead of your co-workers.

I have bought copies of this book and left them in the staff room so anyone that wanted to read them could. I told the staff that I had enjoyed the book very much and although it may not be for everyone that they should give it a read with an open mind. Those that have read it so far found it to be interesting. I am using it as a jumping point to improve our one on one coaching sessions

A must read. I have recommended to my kids. Now they are big fans of Larry. Also recommended to all my managers at work. The ones with highest standards embrace it. Others....not so much. There is very little shades of grey here

Although I don't always agree with everything Larry says. I really enjoy his books. To the point, blunt and effective.

I didn't finish it, and I'm an avid reader. I read one of his other books, Shut up, stop whining, etc, but this just felt like his personal soapbox.
