5.0 out of 5 stars Quick Review or Introduction of Larry Winget with Great Illustrations 23 Oct 2011
By Alain B. Burrese - Published on Amazon.com
I enjoyed Larry Winget's "Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get A Life." The subtitle, "A Kick-Butt Approach to a Better Life" sums the book up pretty well. Now, if you want a quick version of Winget's message, along with some great illustrations by Shane Clester, you can read "Shut Up, Stop Whining & Get A Life: A Kick-Butt Approach to a Better Life" in comic form by SmarterComics. The adaptation is by Cullen Bunn, and in a short 50 page comic or graphic novel format, Winget's message from his original book is captured, shared, and told in an entertaining way with the illustrations. It is a very quick read, and I really liked the illustrations and the key messages from the original book that are shared in this format.

I also like the idea of Smarter Comics, because I think it is a way to get ideas to some people who might not otherwise read the longer books. It is also a fun way to review the key points of the original books as a refresher. It has been a while since I read Winget's book, and I admit that I enjoyed this quick review. Obviously, it does not contain nearly as much as the full length book, but some of the key ideas and the brunt of the message Winget preaches is found within this short adaptation.

If you are not familiar with Larry Winget, the self-described "Pitbull of Personal Development," this is a good place to get a taste of his teachings, and if you agree with him, move on to his books. Personally, I do agree with much of what he says, and have enjoyed all of his books, and that's why I enjoyed this short comic.

I also really liked that last page, that didn't have comic illustrations. Winget says you've only read a comic, and none of it matters if you don't take action. Action changes things, and it is the only thing that matters. So if the things he says ring true for you, and inspire you to change your life for the better, great. But you must act to make that change. I also like that he tells you to take that action right now. Now is the only time to act!

If you need a quick kick in the pants regarding how to be more successful, this smart comic just might do the trick. If you are a Winget fan, you'll like it. Maybe even wish it were longer. If you don't know Winget, this is a good quick introduction. Take his advice and put it to work to make your life better, because that is what it is all about.

4.0 out of 5 stars I read this on my iPad... 30 July 2011
By Ange Rosser - Published on Amazon.com
This is a nice way to get an overview of any book. It hits all the high points without leaving you bogged down in the sometimes repetitive details that are meant to reinforce the ideas. If you like this you may want to read the full version of the text then come back here to help gather the high points into a nice concise location. These books are like cliff notes in a good way. Short and to the point, these works from Smarter Comics help bring the important points to the masses, but do not fully replace reading the actual books. Still, I own several of these and highly recommend them!

With all the self help books, I find that no one tells it like it is as Larry Winget. He doesn't coddle and lays it on the line.
4.0 out of 5 stars A straight forward, no-nonsense approach to living a better life. 12 Aug 2013
By Joseph J. Truncale - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had never heard of or read any books by Larry Winget until fairly recently. I purchased a book by him because I loved the title, "People are Idiots and I can prove it." I loved his straight forward, no-nonsense approach to life. I like the fact that he emphasizes the individualist approach and refuses to fall in line with the far left "victim ology" philosophy that seems to be popular today with the far left pseudo-intellectual collectivists. These are the people who have no concept of reality and individualism. These are also the same people who promote "wealth distribution and socialism."

This version of his book (Shut Up, Stop Whining & Get a Life) is put out by Smarter Comics and is fully illustrated in this comic book format. I had not read the original book by Larry Winget, but this comic book version was clear, concise, and easy to understand by any rational person. I like his "no punches pulled" and "telling it like it is" approach to giving his advice. There is too much B.S. floating around and way too many people sitting on their butts feeling sorry for themselves. Unfortunately, this victim psychology and philosophy today is so prevalent, that I fear the values that made this country great may for all intents and purposes be forever dead.

This text is organized into three basic parts. Part one begins by telling you to SHUT UP! In this respect, the most talkative people are usually the ones who need to listen more to the facts of reality. Part two tells you top STOP WHINING! As we all know, in most cases the people who complain the most never come up with possible solutions to their problems. When they do come up with an idea it is usually THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD SUPPLY US WITH EVERYTHING WE NEED IN LIFE and "IT ALL THE RICH PEOPLE'S FAULT FOR MY PROBLEMS." The final section emphasizes that you need to GET A LIFE. This section provides simple effective suggestions to motivate you to work and seek out a better life.

In conclusion, this is a book for anyone who is willing to take responsibility for their own failure or success.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Never Trust a Politician)
