    Glen Beck, the number-one New York Times best-selling author and popular radio and television host, revisits Thomas Paine's Common Sense with one purpose: to galvanize Americans to see past government's easy solutions, two-part monopoly, and illogical methods, and take back our great country.

    Overall

    Before hearing this book, I thought Glenn Beck was a different kind of conservative -- a more enlightened one who had left behind the baggage of intolerance. Indeed, in the first half of the book, he demonstrates a remarkably concise grasp of the root causes behind America's current crises. Like me, he hails individual freedom as the consummate value underpinning the greatness of our country.

    But then, in a disappointing turn typical of contemporary conservatism, he enshrines two of freedom's nemeses, religion (You gotta have God) and immigration intolerance (We need a big fence around the U.S.), as being somehow consistent with the concept of individual freedom. That did it for me. I couldn't finish the book.

    While I generally prefer author narration, Mr. Beck can become excited, noisy, and irritating when trying to make a critical point. To me, this was distracting.
