Glen beck made the book amusing to hear along with his associates. The break in narration was fun and made it very easy to listen to. It would defiantly be a tough book to hear if you didn't agree with his small government philosophies. For me the book was frustrating because while I agreed with his statements, it was a very bitter pill to hear all the things that are wrong with government and how it has become misdirected. It also is unfortunately a bit outdated as it is written just as Obama is taking office in his first term and since then much has changed.
Simply put, great to listen to, a bit dated on facts, and I wouldn't read this unless you already agree with his thoughts or are willing to be open minded. It speaks down to anyone else in case that wasn't already implied by the title.
Whether you agree or disagree with Glenn Beck's political leanings (I had no idea who he was until I started to listen to this book.) the falsetto voice he puts on for the "idiot" is too annoying to listen to for more than 2 minutes. It's way over the top and takes away from the content.
I can not listen to one more minute of this recording.
Maybe the book would be better. It's too late for me though. If I tried to read the book, I think I would hear his voice. (shudder)
Mr. Beck, it worked for Pee-Wee Herman. It doesn't work for you.
This book provides detailed examples of how past situations have been handled and what took place.
I found this book to be funny and full of information that is easily understood, easily fact-checked. I found the book easy to read. I liked the attention to detail. Don't forget Glenn Beck is also a comedian and it show in this book. Conservatives will love it while the left liberal will not.
I have many interests. I was a Paramedic, Webmaster, Internet Marketer. Now a Registered Nurse and avid gardener.
WOW! This book is great. I get very angry if a book is all about the left or right point of view. I like when the Author uses facts, humor and common sense. He keeps it interesting throughout the whole book. He makes the facts easy to understand and interesting.
Avid history and fiction/non-fiction fan.
Mr. Beck's latest novel focuses on the issues around the health care debates and the Obama administration. Valid points where centrists could possibly agree are present, but buried under snarky criticism and one-liners. Not bad, but far from a concise narrative of the circumstances America is experiencing now.
Poorly built facts and very very conservative view on things. If you hate liberals and anything that even remotely reflects some socialistic views or ideas, if you firmly believes that socialism equals communism and stupidity- then this book is for you.
For me, this was a true waste of credits.
This book has great information, but I would much rather go back and look up the points in a book, when the situation arises.
It has many historical facts that support each argument, and its impossible to remember all of them, when just listening to them.
I wish I had bought the book instead
