Reviews

With a writing style best described as full-throttle rant, the host of the A&E reality show Big Spender reveals the naked truth about careers, the employer/employee relationship, management skills, productivity and pay. Declaring at the outset that "there will be parts of this book you won't like," while daring readers to continue, Winget (Shut Up, Stop Whining & Get a Life) sets a high threshold for delivering a likable, useful book that will educate and promote behavioral changes. Yet he delivers. His brutal frankness about what's wrong with how businesses big and small operate offers a refreshing contrast to other career counseling and management books even the gray area of ethics is delivered in black and white. In a section titled "What Happened to You?" he reminds readers of what it means to accept a job: "No work no pay. No work no job." Companies, as he repeatedly stresses, exist to make a profit, not to make their employees happy or feel fulfilled. Winget's advice is solid: delivering results is the most fulfilling career move one can make. (Jan.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

"Larry Winget simultaneously takes on everyone from smart-ass employees and motivational speakers to bad service, bad salespeople and bad bosses. It's not a fair fight. Winget has an unfair advantage - he tells the truth and doesn't give a damn if you like it or not. But like it or hate it, Larry will challenge you to be as amazing as you know you are."
--Joe Calloway, author of Work Like You're Showing Off!"Thin skinned? No sense of humor? Don't read this book! I warned you. On the other hand, if you want to read a book that cuts through the normal fluff and challenges you personally, then pay attention: Larry Winget will irritate you to be a better employee and a better person." --Mark Sanborn, CSP, CPAE, President, Sanborn & Associates, Inc., author of The Fred Factor"Winget sets a high threshold for delivering a likeable, useful book that will educate and promote behavioral changes. He delivers...Winget's advice is solid: delivering results is the most fulfilling career move one can make."--Publishers Weekly
