The Pitbull of Personal Development and New York Time bestselling author is back with advice on the dumb things people do to sabotage their success
What do people really want? They want what they've got. It's a simple formula. You have what you want because your actions produced your results. Not your words and certainly not your wants.
In his signature caustic yet lovable style, Larry Winget dishes out straight talk on what he calls "life's messes", and offers sound, simple solutions. Taking on business, family, health, being fat, being stupid, success, money, and more, Larry Winget points out exactly which changes have to take place in order for people to turn their lives around.
A little bit of business, a little bit of personal development, a little finance, a little parenting, a little health and wellness, The Idiot Factor will help anyone identify his or her own "areas of stupidity" and take action to finally achieve real success.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have read another book by Larry Winget so I was sort of prepared for this one. But, in this book you are given actual assignments to do. Don't skip them! Thought provoking, at times funny, and definitely pointed, this book will give you cause to look at yourself in a new way. I would recommend this book to anyone serious about moving forward in a new direction.
Straight forward and honest, nothing new that hasn't been said before about all issues important to us all. This book helps you get past the excuses to improving your life in all aspects.
