As events today often appeared to be impossible not long ago, this book reveals how the changing public perception and acceptance can be influenced by manipulation. As one with a sales and marketing background, I found myself frequently nodding with understanding while listening to the audio version.
If one steps back from the obvious "conspiracy" nature of this, the book can be viewed as a metaphor encouraging us all to be diligent in insisting that our elected officials return to Founding Principles. If the American experiment fails, it is because "We the People" have forgotten that in America we are in charge-not the elected officials, not the bureaucrats, not the businesses. We must take back our power.
A good book, that kept me intrigued throughout. I like the story line the characters seemed a little too "stereotypical" at times. I found a lot of similarities to the Star Wars trilogy (1st and best).
I didn't even finish it. The plot was ok, just barely ok. It might have kept my attention. But there was more time spent on the sappy romance than the real plot. And the "almost" sex scenes were disappointing to me. Glenn Beck is usually very family friendly. I'm a huge fan of his, but this was a tragedy.
I enjoyed the Audible book for the emotions that are conveyed. It brings you into the mind of the characters.
in a few spots
It made me mad in parts, sad in others. But is was worth every moment!
I love a book that uses facts in it's story line.
Noahs' speech when he speaks about our laziness and about our division and how we are easily manipulated because of it.
The book was great. What makes a great political thriller is that it could be possible by using facts in the way Glenn Beck did. I truly enjoyed the book it made me think.The book opened my eyes to understand that blaming people is not what we need to do. We need to find something that unites us otherwise this could be possible. We allow political parties to divide us and no one is trying to find ways to unite us which makes this book so interesting and plausible. A good political thriller has a ring of truth in it.
I read, or listen to books to help me do better professionally. But I also like to read books on politics and US History!
I am a political junkie! I like that Glenn takes what is happening today and builds a "this could happen" story around it! Fun ride!
