    The truth for people who feel entitled

    Whatever people who demand that the government solve all their problems and meet all their needs EXPECT is exactly the opposite of what Winget proposes. For people (whether extremely young and misguided by political correctness and other baloney about "personal empowerment" taught in public schools or extremely old and eager to demand their "fair share" of entitlements funded by their grandchilden and great-grandchildren) who "just don't get it," Winget's book is a simple, clear, direct WAKE-UP CALL. He tells the truth. He doesn't try to blow happy, pink smoke about "hope" and "change"; he doesn't try to convince readers that he cares about their feelings. Because he doesn't placate, cajole, pander, or pussyfoot around the harsh reality of life as it really is--not the fantasy of "because I want it, I deserve it, and I should have it NOW!" spoiled brats--Winget hits a nerve. Few like it, but most can trust it...because what he writes is true. He's funny but tough. He wants people to recognize their problems, take responsibility for their decisions, and act appropriately to effect meaningful change. And his advice is practical, reasonable, and pragmatic. If he ever ran for political office, Winget would lose because he doesn't lie, conceal, delude, misdirect, or hand-hold. That's not his style. However, if the definition of a real friend is someone who teaches you how to change a flat tire rather than "do it for you," then Winget's a true friend. He's not a hugger, but he will tell you that the dress doesn't make you look fat, but the muffin-top bulge and triple chins makes you look fat. If you moan about not having a job, Winget might say that people always do what they want to do...in spite of what they say they want to do. He reminds people to reduce the quantity of their words and increase the quality of their actions--especially in the context of finding, keeping, and enhancing a job--through HARD WORK, perseverance, dedication, and purposeful focus.
