An Inconvenient Book: Real Solutions to the World's Biggest Problems (Unabridged) | [Glenn Beck]

An Inconvenient Book: Real Solutions to the World's Biggest Problems (Unabridged)

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

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".

      "Funny & Thought Provoking"

      My only complaint with this audiobook is that you can't see the graphics from the book. Glenn talks about things from Global Warming to Blind Dating with a no-nonsense approach. His use of humor to show fallacies in the "conventional wisdom" on many social and political topics is refreshing.

      "Scary Ending"

      Glenn's self-read audiobook was great, following along with his ADD-fast speech and occasional 'oh look a butterfly' distraction moments throughout. Most is comfortable and familiar, but with more depth than a half-hour TV show. However, the last chapter was a shocker, especially scary -- relating to the illegal immigration situation and his research (maybe I just missed that in the newspapers? I think that's the point!).

      I heartily recommend this book; I'll leave the surprise to the listener to figure out.

      "Not what I expected"

      This is the first book I have gotten by Glen Beck. I thought it was a little funny but there was no more info in this book that I don't get listening to him on the radio and tv. I did not like his graphic account of a childs kidnaping/death. It was compleatly unnessasary.
      The reading was good and clear and he moved quickly through the stories and I kept my attention but as the book moved along I got more and more disapointed that the content was not more interesting.

      "very entertaining"

      I like it when an author reads his own book. Glenn Beck is very entertaining and makes you look at things in a different light. Since I am not much on reading or listening to non-fiction books I enjoyed this one very much. You don't have to agree with him on the political front to enjoy this book.

      "Tell us what you really think!?!"

      He doesn't mind speaking his mind does he?!? The only problem with that is that he tends to go overboard with his dramatizations. Even though he admits he's a pure blood conservative, he certainly has a flare for melodrama. For me, living in Australia, I can see why he'd work well as a radio DJ, but give him a soap box and he'll jump on it. He is funny in many parts and he does use some good statistics, but even he admits: "Statistics don't lie, but liars use statistics". This is good for opposing views backed up with evidence, and it is quite funny throughout, but I have to say the "ADD moments" get very frustrating. But this one is certainly better than his 2nd one - "Arguing With Idiots"

      "Beck is funny"

      Beck is a weirdo. Sometimes he makes sence but sometimes he's way off. In this book he makes sence he tells it like it is. I gotta hand it to him he's his own man. I think eighty percent of America would disagree with this book. But his thought process is entertaining as heck..

      "An Inconvenient Book"

      Glen Beck knows how to hold your interest with the truth and his good humor. It is a book that could be read and reread

      "Admitted Twisted Freak..."

      Admitted full disclosure; I’m a sick, twisted freak… but trying to be as unbiased as possible, I loved the audio-book, and having Glenn read his own words (which would probably wouldn’t have been as funny if done by anyone other than the author) made it highly enjoyable.

      If you like Glenn, you’ll love his book.

      "Solutions to every problem"

      Glenn Beck nails it right on the head! I have never found a book more true and relevant than this one. So much of it I agreed to;I have had the same kinds of conversations with others, with my children, family and friends. Glenn Beck really knows what is going on, he separates the good from the crap and does it all in a very entertaining way.
      Save your money - don't buy florescent light bulbs it won't save the planet anyway!
      Glenn Beck - 08!

      "Eye opening facts"

      Great factoids, but the book is probably a better read then a listen. Glen reads the book as if he were on his radio show, and so the book is best listenned to in several sessions, rather then emersing yourself in it for long periods of time. Glen wearies the ear after awile. Also some of the facts you might want to write down, and that is difficult with an audio book. I recommend reading it rather then listenning to it.
