    Who's Looking Out for You? is a book that boldly confronts our worst fears and biggest problems in a post-9/11, post-corporate-meltdown world. Its sage, candid advice on regaining control and trust in these troubled times will resonate with the millions of readers and viewers who have come to believe in Bill O'Reilly as the man who speaks for them.

    "Highly recommended to anyone with an open mind."
    Overall

    This book has little to do with politics ? The focus is on how to tell who has your best interest at heart. O?Reilly uses a wide variety of examples from his own life to examine this subject. Bill provides examples of his failures, successes, and the lessons he has learned so far in life. He explains his philosophy of how human beings should interact and details how he developed these ideas.

    To the people who rated this book with one star, it is very apparent from the comments that they didn?t crack the cover. Snoople007 from Manchester, NH betrays his orientation by grouping O?Reilly with right wing personalities Hannity, Limbaugh, Coulter, and Hume. Anyone who listens to O?Reilly knows that he is a very independent voice. Snoople007 throws out the following: ?He's simply not good with facts, and he's not analytical either?. ?. What???
    Steve, from Minneapolis, MN, is another far left ?pretend? reviewer. His statement? ?I must admit, I only got 3/4 of the way through this collection of half-truths, misrepresentations and no-truths before I had to throw it away. Hey Steve, how does O?Reilly?s explanation of his experiences and the conclusions he draws from them have anything to do with what you are saying???

    O'Reilly exposes the lack of accountability of the elite in this country. There is a very sad lack of understanding by many in this country about the abuses of elitist journalists, politicians, and business executives that Bill O?Reilly points out in this book. If extremists would take the time to listen to what is actually being said, I believe we would have a chance of correcting some of the biggest problems we face. Bill O?Reilly talks about what our founding fathers intended the real America to be and shows, through many examples, what extremists are attempting do to our nation.

    Ideologues will not believe any of this however and will continue to read and believe inflammatory tripe from Michael Moore, Ann Coulter, or Al Franken.

    You've probably heard clips from Senator Clinton's interview with Barbara Walters. But now you can listen to her full account of her years in the White House. Hillary Clinton vividly describes her pain over her husband's betrayal with Monica Lewinky saying that former President Bill Clinton lied to her about the relationship until the weekend before he admitted the nature of it to a grand jury.

    Amazon Customer says: "Love It or Hate It"
    "Perhaps this book was listed in the wrong category"
    Overall

    If you correlate the reality of Clinton's public life to this book, I believe most rational people will come away with the feeling that this book should have been listed under fiction. Her claim of being shocked to find out about the president's marital transgressions borders on the comical. The brief outline of her childhood, college, introduction to politics, and the partnership with Bill, no doubt have some truth woven in. The wide variety of topics seems to provide a snapshot view that Hilary would like the reader to accept as a factual depiction of a noble life in the service of humanity. When I try to balance the words in the book with the person I have watched for all these years, I am more than a little skeptical. She offers many apologies, for the mistakes she has made along the way but they are not the kind one would expect. The overall feeling that I came away with is that this person is only interested in self-promotion and attaining higher office. Only the very naive will be willing to believe many of the assertions she puts forth in this waste of time....
