New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Larry Wignet offers sharp, unapologetic—and invaluable—advice for succeeding in the work world

For all those who are frustrated at work, who seem to have no luck in business, who are underappreciated at the office, who are uninspired by their daily tasks, who just aren’t finding the career success they desire, Larry Winget is ready to share his wisdom:

It’s called work for a reason.

It's time for a swift kick in the pants from The Pitbull of Personal Development®, Larry Winget. Studies say that we actually work only half the time we are on the job. So then whose fault is it when we don’t get the results we want? Stop making excuses for your lack of success and stop acting like someone owes you a living. Larry is here to ruffle your feathers and show you how to take responsibility for your results. Whether you punch a clock, own your own business, or manage other people, Larry's advice will work for you.

Find out why:

  • Success is simple
  • Teamwork doesn't work
  • Our co-workers are really only "co-goers"
  • Results are everything
  • You don't have to love your job (but it helps!)

Remember the work ethic of your parents and grandparents and make yourself worth more than you cost. That's the way to get ahead, and there's no big secret that will get you there quicker.

Larry Winget is one of the country’s leading business speakers and a member of the National Speakers Association Hall of Fame. He is the author of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellers You’re Broke Because You Want to Be and It’s Called Work for a Reason!, and the Wall Street Journal and BusinessWeek bestseller Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get a Life.

  • Blunt and to the Point

    Mr. Winget gets it across that employment is a privilege and putting in a fair day's work for the wage is the way of the world, as in ask not what the boss can do for you but what you can do for the boss. I bought this book for my young adult son. I couldn't get some ethic issues across to him so maybe a "man" could. As it turns out, son can use some of this information to inspire his co-workers as he recently got promoted. For those young folks that feel they are entitled to something, this book might come across as a rude awakening. My son felt insulted at first when I gave it to him. However, the author also gives lots of advice on how to improve performance and becoming an asset to an employer.
