Shortly after my company was downsized and I found myself unemployed, I started reading a few excerpts of this in the bookstore and I couldn't put it down. I am not one to wallow in despair and this book facilitated my launch into a job search with a positive outlook. The author writes with a very straight-forward style, using a nice combination of logic and humor, to motivate the readers to look at their life situation, and analyze whether it is really propelling them toward their goals. I have recommended it to many of my friends.

Sometimes, you don't want to face the truth because you know the person is right. Larry is right. There is really is no excuse for letting things happen . We all have control and the choice to make things happen . There is no one to blame but ourselves .

This book is a real eye opener, great for anyone who has struggled in the past with situations beyond their control, or is currently having a difficult time. My favorite quote from this book is "Taking credit for your successes feels a lot better than blaming others for your failures".

This was an interesting book...new approach was funny and allowed you to look at aspects of what you may be doing (or not doing) differently.

If you are tired of being a doormat and feeling sorry for yourself, Larry Winget has got the perfect advice for you. Larry is on target with his approach to correcting self inflicted bad karma. It is an enjoyable book and fast reading.
