USABookNews.com has announced the winners and finalists for their 8th annual USA Best "Books of 2011" Awards, with 'Shut up, Stop Whining and Get a Life' from SmarterComics coming in as a finalist in the Self-Help: Motivational category.
SmarterComics adapted 'Shut Up, Stop Whining and Get a Life' by Larry Winget, which is considered to be one of the most controversial self-help books on the market. Winget's no-holds-barred approach to creating a better life has readers facing the toughest of their problems: Themselves. SmarterComics stayed true to the original style of the book, offering readers a no-nonsense guide to self-help. 'Shut up, Stop Whining and Get a Life' from SmarterComics consists of 80 pages of fully illustrated comic book panels, where readers find all of Winget's advice, tips and strategies for dealing with their problems head-on.
"We are incredibly proud to have had 'Shut Up, Stop Whining and Get a Life' nominated for The USA Best Books Awards, let alone the fact that it was chosen as a finalist - especially in a year that has seen an unsurpassed amount of entries. We believe our ability to turn business books into comic books is a great way to reach new generations of readers, as well as fans of the original books. Our ranking in The USA Best "Books of 2011" Awards affirms the fact that our unique approach to story telling is capturing readers' interests," said Sander Pieterse, Creative Director of SmarterComics (http://smartercomics.com/).
The USA Best "Books of 2011" Awards were announced on November 1, 2011. The nominees included books that were published in 2010 and 2011. The results of the awards for both finalists and winners have created a great deal of interest in these books, which will most likely result in increased visibility for the companies, as well as higher sales volumes for the books that are nominated and new batches of publications.
SmarterComics specializes in creating comic-style books out of must read business books, which is most likely what lead them to stand apart from other books in their specific genres. SmarterComics takes a completely unique approach in creating their comics, where they analyze every aspect of the original book before breaking it down into a summarized version of the original. They pair these summaries with illustrations to create an easy to read comic book that takes most readers less than an hour to read, while still incorporating every important aspect of the original bestseller.
