A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed...can it be stopped?
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.
For Noah Gardner, a 20-something public relations executive, it's safe to say that political theory is the furthest thing from his mind. Smart, single, handsome, and insulated from the world's problems by the wealth and power of his father, Noah is far more concerned about the future of his social life than the future of his country.
But all of that changes when Noah meets Molly Ross, a woman who is consumed by the knowledge that the America we know is about to be lost forever. She and her group of patriots have vowed to remember the past and fight for the future - but Noah, convinced they're just misguided conspiracy-theorists, isn't interested in lending his considerable skills to their cause.
And then the world changes.
An unprecedented attack on U.S. soil shakes the country to the core and puts into motion a frightening plan, decades in the making, to transform America and demonize all those who stand in the way. Amidst the chaos, many don't know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact - or, more important, which side to fight for.
But for Noah, the choice is clear: Exposing the plan, and revealing the conspirators behind it, is the only way to save both the woman he loves and the individual freedoms he once took for granted.
After five back-to-back number-one New York Times best sellers, national radio and Fox News television host Glenn Beck has delivered a ripped-from-the-headlines thriller that seamlessly weaves together American history, frightening facts about our present condition, and a heart-stopping plot. The Overton Window will educate, enlighten, and, most important, entertain - with twists and revelations no one will see coming.

Great story and very well written. I was not expecting such a well written novel with a powerful plot.
I can't wait for his next novel!
I would highly recommend.
Interested in everything History,Biology,Astronomy,Physics,Chemistry,Theology,Mysteries,Science Fiction,Drama, and much more!!
If you have been watching Glenn's TV show, the you will be see how he weaves current events into a not so far fetched plot the looks a lot like current day events. It is surprising entertaining, thoughtful,and disturbing since the story is a look into current events in our beloved country.
Glenn Beck's novel is a fun summer thriller. The writing isn't as good as in Stieg Larsson's very adequate trilogy, at the same time, it isn't as merely passable as the exposition laden Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.
If you want to turn your mind off and just enjoy a good thriller, this novel fits the bill. If you want something to think about to think about, this novel will also fit the bill.
Note to progressives: you will hate this book as it exposes a great deal of the progressive agenda. Note to the rest of the world: you will be amazed & enlightened as Beck reveals how we have all been manipulated by the world's media spin doctors, PR firms, & politicians that 'run' our countries. Once again, EVERYone I know is getting a copy of this book from me. OUTSTANDING read!
I've been a Glenn Beck radio fanboy for 6 years or so. This book just sucked. Plot? Average. WAY too much dialogue. It seemed like conversations lasted for pages and pages. And it doesn't help that the narrator needs to take an acting class. I desperately wanted this book to sing to kill his critics. No such hope. Just more fodder for the MSNBCers.
this is a great modern day thriller. much more interpersonal than raw action, but a great mind opener to possibilities that could be reality without engagement! i am a Beck fan anyway, but really liked his fiction work.
This was one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. Mr. Beck's vision of what is going on in our country today is uncanny. God bless him and I am waiting for his next.
I am a huge fan of Glenn Beck and what follows is an honest appraisal from a fan.
If you follow Glenn's show (radio or TV) on a regular basis then you will immediately understand where he is going in the novel. It is his dark vision of his worst nightmare.
This book is a 'unveiled' look at one possible future for the very real America in which we all currently live ... a future that he and I and countless others are desperate to avoid.
I found the book to be an entertaining, light read. But because I follow Glenn so closely, it was predictable.
Nonetheless, I highly recommend this book as a great beach or traveling companion.

Spellbinding, thought provoking, and an all-around good read (e.g. a good listen). Should be mandatory reading for any freedom loving patriot. Should be banned to all budget-busting progressives -- but even those folks will enjoy the story: a boy, a girl, and a cold cruel world.
Note the audible READER was excellent.
The author starts by warning you, some will not like this book because they disagree with his philosophy. I listened to the whole book and could not make any sense of his views. It was very disjointed and he seemed to run out of time and just end the book. I'm sorry I wasted my time listening to this.
