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
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.
I have both the audible and the hard cover of this book. I bought the hard cover and could not put it down so I purchased the audible version so I can listen when I do not have time to read. I am someone that listens to books because I never have the time to read, but this book is just that good. I am only about halfway though but so far I love it. Great Job to it's author.
I enjoyed the book and will share it with my young nephews.
Conservatism is not a difficult point to argue... it just needs someone to do it. Beck provides evidence for each of his positions in the kind of terms that common people can relate to.
Current events have shown us that Harvard, and Yale educated individuals are just as stupid as High School nitwits, only they do their stupidity in increments of billions and trillions of our tax dollars.
This book is a good tool to show the holes in the swiss cheese that is big government socialism.
Glenn may be clown, but this book has real substance. It is well researched and presents his case for government abiding by Our Constitution backed up with the facts.
you would have to be an idiot to not see the truths in this book. The liberals are scared of this man for good reason, he tells the truth. All of the facts in this book are backed with actual data not make believe data like other media outlets spew.
The book presents interesting premise and sets out to present "facts" about various issues. However, the author carefully crafts half truths or clear bias. What the author considers "facts" are often just personal opinions not backed by any data. I found myself constantly scratching my head, going "did he just say that without considering cases x. y, z"? There be no facts to be found in this book. Only weak opinions and unfounded delusions. At least the author is a self proclaimed idiot. Save you money, go and buy
Freakonomics or something more interesting by Malcolm Gladwell or Richard Dawkings.

The brilliance of Arguing with Idiots is that Glenn takes the entire liberal narrative and deconstructs it piece by piece until at the end all you have is a bunch of mumbo jumbo feel good-ism.
I guess what I like most about this book is that if you pay attention to it, what Glenn is really doing is teaching you how to take a liberal's arguments and turn it against them.
Oh and one more thing...It doesn't hurt that this title is amazingly funny!
Well i generally absorb most what was read in this book but the chapter on presidents would be something i would revisit again
Facts, not too much opinion
His ADD moments are quite amusing
Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt, whom i thought was the model republican, and he just isnt.
Only that Glen should narrate his books himself (Pat and Stu are not bad either), more people would be incline to buy his other books.
First Glenn Beck book ive listened to and I loved it.
Not sure have to read a book to be able to compare.
Great listen and would definetly refer all to listen.
