Amazed at the negative reviews from intellectual baron individuals who comment on books without reading them. If you are TRUE LIBERAL THEN BE OPENED MINDED. It is time for us to wake up and know that we the people have the control. Not the White House, Wall Street or the Business Plaza. Read this book with an open mind. You may not like all it says but I bet you will find points that you can not disagree with. Think about it...Clinton, to Bush, to Obama. Where are the great men or women in our society. Bring back our common sense. This country will make it!!! I was once left of center. However, my party has left me. Read before you comment. Right or Left! Great book Glenn.

This book will offer you no salvation, no self-help tips, no actual history, and nothing of value. It will offer you a path to elect officials who represent corporate interests. These same corporate interest want nothing more than to continue the consumerist culture that will lead to our nation's moral, intellectual, and financial bankruptcy. If you believe Glenn Beck, you are a fool. Read a REAL history book, use critical thinking skills, think divergently, and STOP obeying those who wish to keep you on a leash. I am not saying that either party should be listened too, but Beck is a demagogue for Republicans. The right does not care about working people. They only care about keeping you complacent, scared, and dumb so they can destroy our country and planet with impunity. Please STOP and THINK. Then find authors and thinkers who actually want to look out for your interest. Beck is a shill, nothing more. If you can't see it, you are already a slave. For a real understanding of our world, I'd try Orwell, Huxely, Neil Postman, Tony Judt, Glenn Greenwald, Robert Putnam. If you want to go further into the weeds you can move on to Noam Chomsky, Matt Taibbi, Jeremy Rifkin, Chris Hedges, or Slavoj Zizek. Good luck.

    For Nook Users

    Book is typical Beck, an assortment of facts collected, as they most always are, to promote a certain point of view. That's fine, I understand what he's trying to say. Unfortunately, the book has a large amount of graphic/print illustrations that you can't even read in a Nook. There's no way to enlarge them to make them viewable (like you can on most smartphones) and so you miss the point of the graphics placement. Each chapter begins with a page that has what I assume to be an important quote from someone that is placed inside a large graphic, so on the Nook, if the quote is too long, it is very small and hardly legible. In short, this book is better read in a standard format and not on a Nook.

    Vampires Werewolves and Zombies

    I will maintain a neutral rating until I actually read the book. It is always easier to keep your head in the sand all the while our country is sliding into an abyss. Yet, I understand that reading about vampires would be more entertaining. (Best read in places where the sun don't shine). It will take a "transformation revolution" to turn this country back towards the genius of our constitution. Whatever it takes to wake the masses.
