Shut Up, Stop Whining and Get a Life is a comic adaptation of the motivational book of the same name by life coach Larry Winget. It’s frank and doesn’t cut corners when giving advice. The advice it gives is logical, practical, and explained clearly, so understanding what he’s saying isn’t hard. The book isn’t preachy and doesn’t look down on the reader, instead giving blunt advice that can be followed with the right investment of effort.
The art is blocky, has lots of solid lines, and there’s not much shading in characters. These qualities help give it a more fun feel. Even though you might not think that kind of art a good thing for a book that’s supposed to help you be more productive, it actually helps by making the book more engaging and easier to pick up. This book is for older audiences; there are two pages that touch upon sex (and show a man’s buttocks), but kids and teens generally don’t care about the topic anyway.
