Publisher's Summary

Here, for the first time on audio, is Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly sharing his take on our country, politicians, celebrities, class system, love lives, and money. In fact, O'Reilly's got an opinion on just about everything, and he's holding nothing back.

O'Reilly on sex: "It's time that we all lighten up about sex and keep our sexual activities where they belong: in the privacy of the bedroom or the hot tub, or in the case of Pamela Anderson, on the Internet."

O'Reilly on Martha Stewart: "While she masquerades as a paragon of good taste, she has turned herself into a snooty, condescending mogul...She's a first-rate con artist."

O'Reilly on Al Sharpton and David Duke: "These two are the most ridiculous racial demagogues in the entire U.S.A. If God has a sense of humor, they will be sharing a sauna in the netherworld. With one thermostat."

Mixing fascinating stories from his life both on- and off-screen with his explosive views on what's up with America, and how we can fix it, The O'Reilly Factor will ruffle your feathers, make you laugh, and make you stop and think.

    "A Long Version of His Show (sans Guests)"

    If you like his TV show, you'll probable like this book. Some of his commentary made me laugh, some made me mad, but as always, he makes astute observations about our culture whether you agree with his point of view or not. I was surprised by his references to his early TV days and enjoyed his insight into the media world. Thinking this book would turn out to be mostly politcal commentary, I was surprised to find it was more about life in America in general.

    "Good book."

    Tells it like it is--like so many are afraid to tell.

    "right on target"

    If you take responsibility for your own actions and believe in the theory that hard work pays off you'll enjoy this book.

    "Common Sense"

    If you are not a bleeding heart liberal and can exercise an objective, pragmatic logic, then this is a very good book.

    "Pop Nonfiction Candy for the Fox News Junkie"

    As expected Bill O'Reilly delivers a strong rendition of his populist conservative mantra in an audio format. If you like Bill and want a longer (although no more insightful) version of his show, this will fit your fancy.

    "Great book Mr. O'Reilly"

    Well written, though no surprise. More excellent points than I could count. Sometimes the realities are downright scary. Job well done.

    "Great book...FOR THE FICTION SECTION!"

    Quite possibly the best work of misinformation of all time. I'm a pround right wing conservative and find this piece of writing shamefull and not representative of the true right wing views. Very poor piece of work! We deserve better.
