New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Larry Winget reveals the only thing you need to know to succeed in business- Your success is your own damn fault!

Are you frustrated by your lack of results at work? Have you hit a wall? Are you uninspired, stuck in a rut, feeling under-appreciated? Well, good news- Your success is not up to your boss, your manager, your employees, or the economy. It's up to YOU. Studies say that we actually work only half the time we are on the job. So think about it - when you say 'Bye, honey, I'm going to work!' - what is it you're really heading off to do? And how is it contributing to your overall success? Business is never bad, people are just bad at being in business. If that makes you mad, this book is for you.

It's time for a swift kick in the pants from The Pitbull of Personal Development#65533;, Larry Winget. Stop making excuses for your lack of success and stop acting like someone owes you a living! 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 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!)

'Larry Winget simultaneously takes on everyone from smart-ass employees and motivational speakers to bad service, bad salespeople, and bad bosses . . . Winget has an unfair advantage-he tells the truth and doesn't give a damn if your like it or not. But like it or hate it, Larry will change you to be as amazing as you know you are.'
-JOE CALLOWAY, author of Work Like You're Showing Off!

'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.'

If you read only one book for the perfect combo of a slap in the face and motivation, read this book.

Larry probably has the most succinct description of customer service that I have ever read. Like every book that Larry writes this one about work tells it like it is.
