In his latest book, O'Reilly talks straight to the readers most likely to appreciate his direct style: teens. To be sure he's addressing their most pressing concerns, he responds to actual letters from kids who tune in to his radio and TV shows regularly and collaborates with an award-winning former high school teacher and college professor Charles Flowers.

Sorry, but those who have written reviews on this book to the effect that "this is right-wing propaganda" haven't read it. I am not a right-wing conservative, nor am I a left-wing liberal. I'm like most Americans: in the middle. Thus, you'll get no politically-leaning agenda from my review.
Bill talks about common life situations that kids, and even adults, find themseleves in everyday, while giving straight forward advice like:
- Be honest to your friends and parents
- Be loyal to your friends and family
- Take responsibility for your actions
Bill re-enforces all of the things/qualities/ideals that good parents try to instill in their children. Have your kids read this book; they'll be better for it.
A must read for all kids. This is a straightforward honest look at the pitfalls many kids encounter. This book has the potential to be helpful to many twentysomethings as well as preteens and teenagers.
Truly a disgusting work, this book should not be let within 20 paces of ANY kid. I wouldn't worry about teenagers; any teen who takes one look at this book without either laughing, or throwing it into a lake is already far gone. In a slightly less grating manner than usual Bill O'Reilly espouses his usual mix of extreme right-wing agenda, and the blatantly absurd. Pure propoganda.
