Toney Fitzgerald stands in front of the class with a message. There's little poetry in making money, he says, and there's even less in poverty. In one hand he holds the hammer of reality and, in the other, the gauntlet of defiance. Mixing fiction, experience and teaching, he leads them through ruthless self-examination, preparing them to break through the Bitch barrier to the richer world beyond. Eventually, they face the most serious choice of their lives; either they will make the one, unbreakable, lifelong promise that will radically change the directions of their lives or they will remain forever in a state of self-induced helplessness. Not all make it.

Seven ordinary people addicted to bitching about their lives and their struggles to make ends meet, enrol in a personal development course that changes their lives. A philosopher-cabbie, a cynical hard-nosed English woman and her estranged husband, a middling salesman and his boss, a cafe manager and a hairdresser find themselves at the mercy of a teacher who refuses to pamper them with their usual empty get rich prattle. Instead Toney Fitzgerald leads his clients through a ruthless self-examination to prepare them to break through the Bitch barrier to reach the richer world beyond. Eventually, each of them has to face the most serious choice of their lives; either they will make the one, unbreakable, lifelong promise that will radically change the directions of their lives or they will remain forever in a state of self-induced inertia. Not all make it. Packed with common sense and insights into human change, Toney Fitzgerald keeps his promise in the book; by the end of the book, you will no longer have an excuse to bitch, instead you will have all the tools to make your life rich- it's now up to you.
