Balancing The Reviews
It's obvious that reviewer "Tom" from from Vancouver, WA, hasn't read the book, but only left a ultra bad review to skewer the overall ranking for O'Reilly's latest effort, only because "Tom" apparently doesn't like O'Rielly. If he had read the book, he would have known that O'Rielly uses indisputable FACTS to back up his views. I can't say that I always agree with the opinions and advice that he draws from those facts, but his witty, well articulated, and well researched arguments make for entertaining, educational and enlightening "reading."

Highly recommended to anyone with an open mind.
This book has little to do with politics ? The focus is on how to tell who has your best interest at heart. O?Reilly uses a wide variety of examples from his own life to examine this subject. Bill provides examples of his failures, successes, and the lessons he has learned so far in life. He explains his philosophy of how human beings should interact and details how he developed these ideas.
To the people who rated this book with one star, it is very apparent from the comments that they didn?t crack the cover. Snoople007 from Manchester, NH betrays his orientation by grouping O?Reilly with right wing personalities Hannity, Limbaugh, Coulter, and Hume. Anyone who listens to O?Reilly knows that he is a very independent voice. Snoople007 throws out the following: ?He's simply not good with facts, and he's not analytical either?. ?. What???
Steve, from Minneapolis, MN, is another far left ?pretend? reviewer. His statement? ?I must admit, I only got 3/4 of the way through this collection of half-truths, misrepresentations and no-truths before I had to throw it away. Hey Steve, how does O?Reilly?s explanation of his experiences and the conclusions he draws from them have anything to do with what you are saying???
O'Reilly exposes the lack of accountability of the elite in this country. There is a very sad lack of understanding by many in this country about the abuses of elitist journalists, politicians, and business executives that Bill O?Reilly points out in this book. If extremists would take the time to listen to what is actually being said, I believe we would have a chance of correcting some of the biggest problems we face. Bill O?Reilly talks about what our founding fathers intended the real America to be and shows, through many examples, what extremists are attempting do to our nation.
Ideologues will not believe any of this however and will continue to read and believe inflammatory tripe from Michael Moore, Ann Coulter, or Al Franken.
