Book Description

Aug. 9 2011
Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get a Life was immediately hailed as "not your average self-help book" and demanded attention and praise right out of the gate. It is now considered one of the icons of the personal development movement. Now, Larry Winget is back with his signature caustic, no-nonsense, hilarious style, which earned him the titles "Pitbull of Personal Development®" and "World's Only Irritational Speaker®." Winget's "get off your butt and go to work" approach to self-improvement boils success down to a simple formula: Everything in your life gets better when you get better.
  • Get tangible advice from one of the world's most successful speakers and the author of five bestselling books and television personality.
  • Learn the keys to turning your life, money and business around.
  • Stop making excuses, stop blaming others and take responsibility for your life and your results

The brutal advice he offers has changed the lives of millions of people and increased sales for countless businesses. In this Second Edition of Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get a Life, Winget takes the same principles and expands the lessons with brand new examples, stories, and added wisdom. It may sound ruthless, but your life is your own fault and if you shut up, stop whining, and take action you can create a better life.

5.0 out of 5 stars INCREDIBLE EYE OPENER June 29 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought two of this nuts books as a bit of a challenge based on his titles. I have read hundreds of self help books so he wasn't going to be telling me anything new... or at least I thought. His first few jabs did not affect me too much but before I knew it he had beaten some real down to earth common sense into me. What the hell was I thinking all these years. As if one more get rich quick book was going to do anything and yet I kept buying them. Had I read this one first I would have not needed all those others. He snapped me out of my head fog and gave some REAL steps to start getting a REAL life and making REAL change. I thought it would never happen but ole Larry here has a spot right up there with my other number one book.... "Illusions" by Richard Bach.

Seriously if you are a crybaby who likes to sit around and navel gaze then save your money but if you want some REAL change then order them right now. I know it was the best thing I ever did.

5.0 out of 5 stars My New Favorite Book July 9 2012
By Joed - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be summarized in two pages - instead drags for too long Feb. 4 2013
By Opulen - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars the truth of things Feb. 6 2012
By Robert Kitt - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, contrarian, invigorating Aug. 3 2013
By MWeaverCT - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.
