    The pitbull of motivation

    I can count on one hand the number of motivational speakers that I truly take seriously. Larry is definitely among the top ones. Sometimes we need an in your face message to get a kick start. Personally I loved it. I also have his other "in your face book". This book like his others is not for the squeamish of ego. If you're looking for the warm fuzzies this book isn't for you. If you want to go thru boot camp then pick up this book. You wont be sorry!

    Larry Winget Is The Man!!!!!!!!!!

    I am currently a college student. As many people know when you get to college your life changes. You get into all kinds of activities. Some great activities and some bad activities. Many college students get to college and never read just for the fun of it. Do not get me wrong in college you have to read the books the teacher assign as homework or/and books to study but many students never read a book just for fun of it. I was one of them. I used to go to Barnes and Noble to read the latest car magazine or any sport magazine but never to read to a book or at least read the back to see what it was about. Not until I saw one of Larry's book. It just caught my attention the title of the book and the guy in the cover. To be honest I just couldn't stop reading it. I had to buy the book. Great book it was the first book I read for the first time in many years. After that I had to buy all of Larry's book and like he always says you need to educate your brain by reading and reading. Larry's latest book is "People Are Idiots and I Can Prove It" Some people may be offended by the title but he is just saying the truth. The truth hurts when it's true. If your life is not going the way you always thought it was going to be you need to read this book. If you really want to change your life, your personality, this book can have a great impact on you. There are hundreds of advices in this book that can help you for the rest of your life. Larry doesn't give any complicated theories or anything like that. It is an easy to read book that it is very inspiring and motivational. Larry also has a big sense of humor too. Overall, this book has everything. Great book. I am 100% sure you will not regret reading this book.

    "Weight in Gold"

    Wow!!! What an outstanding book. It is very seldom that I read a book that speaks to my heart and changes my entire state of well-being. I have been sharing this book with family,friends,coworkers, and a few enemies.You do not know how motivated I am to write in to a talk show for a show topic on books that have changed people lives and suggest this book. It would give me and others the opportunity to meet the author's,share the book, and explain how the book met us where we are today. How we have changed since we read these book. This book has a deep-seated meaning and a God-given purpose. God has truly used your books to speak truth and bring light into my life. Thank you for your honest and straight forwardness. I appreciate you and support your work. May God abundantly bless you to keep writing over the top books! Miss Dee

    The negative reviews of this book proves the title┬┐

    People Are Idiots And I Can Prove It<BR/>The 10 Ways You Are Sabotaging Yourself and How You Can Overcome Them<BR/>Larry Winget<BR/>Gotham Books<BR/>ISBN: 9781592404377<BR/>Reviewed b Debra Gaynor for,1/09<BR/>5 Stars<BR/>The negative reviews of this book proves the title¿<BR/>People Are Idiots And I Can Prove It is an entertaining, thought-provoking book. The first point that jumped out at me was, ¿You have what you want because your actions produced what you¿ve got.¿ People need to stop whining and get on with life. You cannot accomplish anything if you do not try. Most people never try. Larry Winget writes with humor, sarcasm, and truth. If you do not like this book, it is because Winget stepped on your toes. This is not a feel-good book, yet I found it encouraging. People Are Idiots And I Can Prove It would make a great graduation gift.
