    A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed. There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws, and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.

    Overall

    First let me say that I am a fan of Glenn Beck, so don't assume the not-so-great rating is because of who the author is. I listen to him on the radio daily and was very excited to get this book. I liked the plot idea and it really does give a scary perspective on where the world could potentially be headed. As a regular listener to the radio show, the fact that he incorporated the chicken waffles into this book totally cracked me up. If you don't understand that comment, don't ask. You had to be listening to the show that day.

    Now, with that said - my favorite books include things like Atlas Shrugged and numerous Stephen King novels. When it comes to my more mindless entertainment, I tend to be a fan of Laurell Hamilton and Sherilynn Kenyon. Ayn Rand and King really get in depth with the stories. I adore downloading a book that is at least 30 hours and sometimes over 60. I want to know everything there is to know about the characters. That's why I love those authors. And I definitely didn't get that with this book. We had barely even gotten to know who these people were before the book was over. I felt like I had stepped into something moderately deeper than a puddle. On the other hand, my interests in Hamilton and Kenyon revolve largely around the sense of humor. The stories keep you on the edge of your seat with all the action and my co-workers constantly give me odd looks because I bust out laughing for no apparent reason. I expected more of that from Beck and it was just missing. Nothing light in here to alleviate some of the tension. And I never truly got to that "can't put it down" point.

    My biggest complaint is that I had been really waiting for the end with all the boring geek stuff about what was true. It wasn't included on this version. It told one specific thing and then suggested that I go look up keywords on the internet. Talk about a letdown.
