Publisher's Summary

The world is a mess. It seems that everywhere listeners turn, there's another problem:

  • Iran is developing nuclear capabilities.
  • Public schools actually seem to be making our kids dumber.
  • Charlie Sheen has a hit sitcom.
  • Obesity is a national epidemic.
  • The divorce rate is rising faster than gas prices.
  • Really: Charlie Sheen has a hit sitcom!
  • And people are more interested in voting for the next American Idol than American President.

    This just barely scratches the surface. Sadly, there's no shortage of problems - what is needed now are solutions. If only there was a man who could simplify things, cut through the rhetoric, and fix everything. Then, if he was just able to put all of that insight into something that people could buy...in a store and online...man, that would great.

    Wait a minute!

    An Inconvenient Book is that very something: the one source for the Real Story behind the problems that seemed too big and complicated to solve (until now) plus their common-sense solutions. Think of it as a Hints from Heloise that's less "getting red wine out of your carpet" and more "keeping illegal aliens out of your country".

      "Underewhelmed"

      I am generally a fan of Glen Beck. However, this book reveals him to be shallow, petty and narrow minded. I only finished listening to it because I paid for it. Don' make the same mistake.

      "Waste of Time and Money"

      If only I could get my $$ and time back from listening to this book. 6.5 hours of my life I'll never get back. Beck claims to have the answers to the biggest problems facing America today in this book. How does tricking your wife into thinking you watched the "bonnet movie" so she will have sex with you affect the well being of the United States?? This guy is a joke and its so sad that people actually take him seriously! The over the top masculinity is so annoying, it was like listening to a 6 hour Budweiser commercial or watching boys smash cans on there heads for hours.

      "This Book Is Atrociously BAD!!!"

      I listen to a lot of books on audible and love this site, but this book is an embarrassment to me as an American and should be to Glenn Beck. Who is this guy? Who died and made him king? I could go on and on with his bogus statistics and ridiculous criticisms but if he calls himself American, I consider him as un-American as they get. He is bombastic, rude, overzealous and just plain high on himself. I wouldn't recommend this book to my worst enemy but I would recommend Glenn Beck to the Taliban - maybe they could judge him like he judges everyone else. How anyone could write anything positive about this book is beyond me!

      "Never finished"

      Talk about ranting and raving. I got about 1/2 way through before I stopped reading and have no intention of ever finishing. I like watching his show, but Beck in a book form was way too much.

      "And it's funny too."

      Informative and entertaining. What more could you ask for.
      Thank you Mr. Beck for giving value full for my money.
