Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author and popular radio and television host Glenn Beck revisits Thomas Paine's Common Sense."If you believe it's time to put principles above parties, character above campaign promises, and Common Sense above all - then I ask you to read this book...."In any era, great Americans inspire us to reach our full potential. They know with conviction what they believe within themselves. They understand that all actions have consequences. And they find commonsense solutions to the nation's problems.One such American, Thomas Paine, was an ordinary man who changed the course of history by penning Common Sense, the concise 1776 masterpiece in which, through extraordinarily straightforward and indisputable arguments, he encouraged his fellow citizens to take control of America's future -- and, ultimately, her freedom.Nearly two and a half centuries later, those very freedoms once again hang in the balance. And now, Glenn Beck revisits Paine's powerful treatise with one purpose: to galvanize Americans to see past government's easy solutions, two-part monopoly, and illogical methods, and take back our great country.

Placing all of the media-hype, talking head stuff aside, Glenn Beck's tirade does produce a few valid points. Fiscal conservatism, breaking the political duopoly in the U.S., and taking personal initiative for positive change are all valid contentions. I am afraid these could be the most noble points in modern discourse, but being tied to their author may keep them from being heard by many.

Common Sense, read by Glen Beck

A wonderful work by Thomas Paine read by Glen Beck. I listened to this audio book almost three times before laying it aside. I will pick it back up again, and again I am sure. The first portion is comment from Glen, and I found it very informational and encouraging. You can the reader was full of passion and at times the rise of the voice was almost irritating. However, the context was 100% worth the listen.

The actual work of Thomas Paine is priceless. I agree this should be required reading and study for every young person in America, and even the world. Very much worth your time to consider.
