Editorial Reviews

Fox News
Larry's frank, brutal, tough and sometimes even obnoxious! But you know something? He has a big heart and an even bigger gut for how we can avoid big mistakes.
—Neil Cavuto
Bloomberg News
His advice . . . is so blunt and so true that it might keep you sane until you retire.
Library Journal

New York Times best-selling author Winget (www.larrywinget.com) presents his fourth self-help guide, following You're Broke Because You Want To Be(2008). At the start he cautions that his style is abrasive and may offend, but his advice is actually no-nonsense and practical (e.g., Want more money? Analyze your spending habits, cut out nonessentials, and don't live beyond your means). He repeatedly suggests forgoing television for reading, which librarians will appreciate. Winget reads his own work with an appealing Oklahoma twang and a perfectly timed delivery. Though the book doesn't cover new ground, the presentation will be popular. Recommended.
—Nann Blaine Hilyard

There are lot of jewels in this book that I have picked up in various other books. This book puts those jewels in a in a book that is fun to read and makes some really great points in a very laughable way.

I enjoyed reading the latest by Larry Winget. The sad thing is that at some point in our lives we are all idiots. Good old fashioned common sense with a battle plan of writing down your goals is what he offers. Good job, please take the time to read it!

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!

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.

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 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.
