Beloved by millions of readers whose lives his books have changed for the better, Robert J. Ringer stands in a class by himself. Ann Landers called this combination social commentator, philosopher, and self-development advisor "an astute student of human nature and a fabulous teacher." Ringer possesses a stinging wit, uncompromising integrity, and a unique ability to explain how the world really works-and how to make it work for you. As one of his fans put it, "As long as there are victims, there will be sharks. Here's to Robert Ringer for helping reduce the food supply." In his eagerly awaited new book, Ringer explains how to get what you want in life-be it love, money, success, or respect-by adopting a rational lifestyle in our often irrational world. Enlightening, straightforward, and candid, Getting What You Want is not for those looking for banal formulas or quick fixes. Advocating such principles as Commit to the Truth, Lower Your People Taxes, and Refuse Free-Lunch Temptations, Ringer shows readers how to create value for others and long-term happiness for themselves. His is a galvanizing message of independence for all those who are ready to take responsibility for their own future.
