Larry Hits the Nail on the Head

I love Larry and loved this book. Fans will be glad to hear he's narrating this one. If you like to be told things straight up, no holding back, with a "I'm here to kick butt and take no prisoners" attitude - this is the book for you. If you're the type who needs to be cuddled and spoken to gently, skip it. This is not an audio book for the precious, sensitive-types among us. If you're not familiar w/ Larry, listen to the sample to see if you like his tonality. He's blunt, sarcastic and sometimes a tad crude so be warned.
His common sense, take responsibility for yourself and act like a mature adult ideology is a perfect antidote for the seemingly overwhelming numbers of whiny, self-absorbed, lazy, "it's all about me" princesses (of both genders) that seem to have invaded the population over the past several years. If you're up to really evaluating yourself, your actions and your life in order to get where you want to go, I urge you to get this book, do ALL the exercises and follow through. I think it's time for all of us to "put on our big kid panties" and work towards a more positive, stable, productive tomorrow.
Now, since I believe Larry's title that people are idiots, I'll just wait to see how many reviews show up complaining about how mean and uncouth Larry is in this book and what a waste of a credit it was, even though they've had ample warning. :-)

he totally pissed me off

and I couldn't stop listening, except when I was making the lists he tells you to write. Yes we are ALL idiots and the goal is the do it less often. I was so happy when he brought up a topic I was already doing and kicking myself when the next section was something I never thought of. He really doesn???t tell anyone anything new but he tells it like it is and helped me keep working on improving myself.
