Praise

“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.”
