"[O'Reilly] manages to pull off an inspirational guide to life's most basic quandaries." (Publishers Weekly)
I would not recommend anyone waste their time with this tripe. O'reilly is so self-righteous and self-congratulatory, that this is just plain hard to listen to.
This book is great. It is a book the forces you to think and come to your own opinion.
This is a must-listen book for anyone - I don't believe for a second it deserves anything less than 5 stars. First off - it's a GREAT audiobook - he's got a great voice and it's read with enthusiasm and belief - that alone makes it a top book here. Bill tells it like it is - it has nothing to do with politics - it's all about how to tell if people have your best interest in mind - or are the looking out for themeselves? I loved it and my wife loved it (the only thing we've agreed on in the past five years!). I've been a member with audbile for years and this is the best book I've ever listed too. I also bought the print version because I liked it so much.
"Looking Out for You" is not your typical advice book...and it's not a conservative vs. liberal ideological assault...other reviewers have this book dead wrong! WLOFY is written from the perspective of a fellow graduate from the University of Hard Knocks and it has a caring-mentorship flair in it's style. It's core emphasis is on building lasting, life-long friendships to help you stay accountable and grounded.
Certainly, O"Reilly does take a few opportunities to "call them as he sees 'em" on some of our current events....But, it's not overdone. As I said, do your son or daughter graduate a favor and put this book in their hand or in their MP3 player. They may not immediately understand some of the "pearls" that O'Reilly is tossing out. But, it might help them change their perspective on how they build long relationships with people who will...Look Out For Them.
Not a single person voting one star actually read this book. They are just cry babies because they can't defend their liberal mind set with reason and critical arguments, so they throw mud. Weak minded people with no real belief system. This is a good book with a hard look at facts and problems that should be addressed, not covered up.
Having watched Bill O'reilly for a few years now I was familar with his thoughts on many of the topics he speaks of in his book. I did enjoy the small insight he gives us into his personel life. He also answered the question in the title and the answer was a little unexpected. It did make me think about myself and what I should expect from this world we live in. I see a few reviews who want to call it right wing trash although his themes are conservative I didn't think he was wrong in what he was saying on the subjects he covered.
Excellent no nonsense writing to get people to think about who really has their best interest at heart. This makes you think about who you associate with and what effect that has on your life. Good for family relationships, friendships, and professional relationships. Written subjectively from a man who is not afraid to take a stand for something and speak his mind.
Love him or hate him, Bill O'Reilly does something that few others dare to; holding people accountable for their actions. Doesn't matter on which side of the fence your politics fall. He attacks both sides in this book. This isn't cupcake questions and wishy-washy allegations. O'Reilly hits his targets fast and hard with stinging wit, solid facts and a good dose of common sense.
Bill O'Reilly takes a traditional look at current political, religious, media, advertising thought control and some personal beliefs. He draws many conclusions on who and what is helping our well being and what may be undermining it. If your values parallel Bill's you will enjoy this book. If they don't you will think it is conservative prattle.
Whether you agree or not one thing is for sure, you will know where Bill O'Reilly stands.
Excellent book. Bill is true to his form. He points out the truth as usual that most people like to ignore. A must read for anyone who can accept the truth in society today.
