The Pitbull of Personal Development® and New York Times 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, People Are Idiots and I Can Prove It! will help anyone identify their own “areas of stupidity” and take action to finally achieve real success.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 1/1/2014

    " Read it twice so far and will probably go through it at least once more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheri Radford | 12/31/2013

    " Larry Winget is, as always, the voice of reason. And damned funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Travis Coverston | 12/30/2013

    " Entertaining and insightful. If only more people listened to this and realized they may be one of these idiots. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theanonymousafro | 12/16/2013

    " Worth reading just for looks received while reading. Has some helpful advise and offers a new way of looking at your actions. My only problem is Winget seems to make too much of a deal about being mean. Since its a short book the intro of him saying that he is not nice seemed longer than necessary. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 11/23/2013

    " Never one to mince words, Larry gets to the heart of everyone's problem - themselves making idiotic decisions. Straight forward, funny, and thought provoking. I've already made changes in my life to overcome my self-sabotaging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Misty | 11/15/2013

    " He may be blunt and rude, but so am I. I enjoyed how frankly he put things. He make you take a hard look at yourself and your actions. Another person that put what I already feel and know a lot more eloquently than I can. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kat | 9/28/2013

    " I liked this! Yes, he can be in your face, but doesn't the title already sort of give you the hint that its going to be that kind of book? I did get a little tired of the lists he starts going over, which seemed to become more numb us towards the enc. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 1/2/2013

    " Guess he hates smokers. And needed a new way to market all his other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Skyline | 10/28/2012

    " I listened to the audio version. This book is a kind of elaboration of his previous book ( Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get a Life ). It adds more reasons to why people are stupid and several advices to avoid it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Axsel Cintron | 8/24/2012

    " I totally see work in a new light! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virginia | 2/17/2012

    " Slightly different take on a typical self help book. If you enjoy those kinds of books you will likely enjoy this one as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelly | 11/17/2011

    " Larry Winget is a very smart man and most of society could learn allot from him. While I do not agree with his ideas completely, I respect the honesty and "in your face" reality of his mantra. Learning to take responsibility for ourselves is the only true way to change. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 9/24/2011

    " I think alot of people I know need to read this book. It had very practical advice without all that touchy feely stuff alot of other self help books have. I will definitely read more of his books!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natasha Fondren | 9/1/2011

    " I have never read a self-help book so I don't have anything to compare this with, but it was assigned at work and I suffered through.

    I thought much of what Winget had to say was common sense "
