Publisher's Summary

There's no one more blunt, more opinionated, or more outspoken than the average teen. Except, of course, Bill O'Reilly, veteran star journalist, anchor of the most watched cable news program on TV, New York Times best-selling author, husband, father of two, and former teacher.

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.

If you're a kid and you're listening to this audio, consider sharing it with your parents, they'll understand you better.

If you're a parent and you're listening to this audio, definitely share it with your kids, you'll sleep better.

Good life lessons for kids

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.

Gerald from Friendswood, Tx

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.

Ugh

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.
