As we approach the most important presidential election in America’s history, something has been lost among all of the debates, attack ads, and super- PACs - something that Americans used to hold in very high regard: THE TRUTH.
Glenn Beck likes to say that “the truth has no agenda” - but there’s another side to that: people who have agendas rarely care about the truth. And, these days, it seems like everyone has an agenda. The media leads with stories that rate over those that matter. Politicians put lobbyists and electability over honesty. Radicals alter history in order to change the future.
In Cowards, Glenn Beck exposes the truth about 13 important issues that have been hijacked by deceit. Whether out of spite, greed, or fear, these are the things that no one seems to be willing to have an honest conversation about. For example:
How our two-party political system often leaves voters with no good options.
How extremists are slowly integrating Islamic law into our society.
How progressive “religious” leaders like Jim Wallis are politicizing the Bible.
How the cartel violence on our border is far worse than people realize.
How “Libertarian” has been intentionally turned into a dirty word.
How George Soros has amassed enough money and power to influence entire economies.
In some cases, the truth is out there, but people simply don’t want to hear it. It’s much easier, and certainly a lot more convenient, to keep our blinders on. After all, as a quote attributed to President James Garfield made clear, “The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable.”
Miserable or not, the truth can no longer be something we hope for; it must be something we live. When courage prevails, cowards do not - and this book was written to ensure that’s exactly what happens.

Guess what... Its by Glenn Beck!!
Here is the obvious two cents for anybody. This book is incredibly conservative or politically to the right. I've always enjoyed the author and have always enjoyed the subject matter. He covers quite a bit of politics but some fun science stuff towards the end. If you don't like Glenn Beck and if you're not politically conservative or libertarian then you probably won't like this book very much. However I suggest you read it anyway because he does make some really good points and the authors for the most part is very entertaining.

Brilliant as usual from Glenn Beck
Would you consider the audio edition of Cowards to be better than the print version?
That is a personal preference, although I like to read along as it is read to me. Comprehension is enhanced 3 fold
What did you like best about this story?
What I like best is it's not a story. The truth is spoken
Which character – as performed by Ron McLarty – was your favorite?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It's an eye opener!!!
Any additional comments?
In his usual format, Glenn Beck cleans house and exposes the corruption that is fluent in the United States and the world. Wake up America
