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".

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.

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.
