I am a huge O'Reilly fan, and watch him almost every night. I read Bold Fresh and enjoyed it. This book seemed a bit rambling and didn't really say anything I haven't already heard on his show. I am glad I checked it out for myself. I hope the next one is more original.
People can be both Pinheads and Patriots like most of us
The idea the President Obama is a patriot as far as wants a better source of energy than oil.
Oil is the best source of energy we have available to us now but not taking advantage of the resources we a in this country makes he a major Pinhead.
Mr Reilly is admitted he is egotistic and it shows but in his defense he is right about many things I would not have even thought of unless I read (in my case heard) this book.
Pay attention: You may not know if you are a Patriot or Pinhead.
Good Book, I will get the other one now
If you like O'Reilly than you'll love the book. It is very interesting and informative. I do like Bill's attitude towards Obama, in that he judges based on what has been done by him and not so much who he is or what he represents. Even if you're not a O'Reilly fan your sure to go away more informed with a better understanding of this administration.
How can I say it any differently than I loved it. It is a non-biased review of people and happenings in the recent past. O'Reilly also notes that we all can be "pinheads" at any one time or another. As always a good read from the man himself.
Bill O’Reilly’s book is okay. He deals fairly with most of the political celebrities and even has a couple of favorable comments for President Obama. He points out the negative things about Democrats and liberals, and the positive things about Republicans and conservatives. These are mostly true although it is obvious that he is leaving out many things he could say to the opposite.
The first 3 hours is mostly Bill ranting. I really got tired of all the yelling. Why can’t he just speak? The last half he calms down a bit. He hails President Reagan’s economic plan, but fails to mention that it tripled the Federal debt and ushered in the deepest recession since the great depression. This is a feat that was exceeded only by President Bush, who tripled the Reagan debt and ushered in the deepest recession since the great depression.
Most of his criticism about President Obama focuses on his lack of anger. For example, Bill criticizes Mr. Obama for insisting that the oil drillers cap the BP oil leak. Well, who else has the expertise? I suppose he thinks the President should have donned a rubber suit and cap it himself. When the underwear bomber was arrested in Detroit, he was sent to jail. There he eventually spoke with a lawyer. Bill calls this an “atrocity.” I suppose due process is only for criminals we like. Maybe he thinks we should have hauled this African out and lynched him.
Mr. O’Reilly often states that he is not a Republican. He sure sounds like one. I am one of the moderate majority and have no allegiance to either extreme. I gave this book 3 stars for entertainment value. I might have given it 4 stars if a better narrator read it.
Always a pleasure to listen to a book read by the author so his thoughts can be properly articulated. I enjoyed Bold Fresh as well. I reccomend this book to anyone especially those who just assume Bill is some right wing schill.
This was my first audible book. I found Bills book to bring me up to speed on many issues that I have been following by sound bits on TV. I enjoyed the book more because of it spoke to our country, and what is going on in it today.
Chargin' hard cuz there too much diem to carpe!
No, while interesting the analysis of our sitting President was without depth and lacked the journalistic probing I expect from Mr. O'Reilly.
His style and wit.
Bill O'Reilly has a wonderfully soothing voice and you can just enjoy his read of his own material, I very much appreciate it when an author does that. Great way to relax and listen.
Although he is clearly above average I have never thought Bill was the brightest, like a Charles Krauthammer, Rove or Newt, but he is fair in his analysis of the major issues that dominate our times. Although his views are not deep, but he covers a vast amount of terrain, and exemplifies a majority of our cultural values. It was worth the time, and if you like Bill's program it is easy to listen to his thoughtful tradionalist perspective. If you are on the fence, you will most likely be pleased with the investment of time.
