Overview

Sending the National Guard to the Arizona border . . .Cutting back-room deals to pass health-care reform . . .Conducting troop surges in Iraq and Afghanistan . . .Considering trying known terrorists in civilian court . . .Which of these moves have been pinheadedand which have been patriotic?

While the changes that took place in America during PresidentObama’s first eighteen months in office are dizzying to eventhink about, their real-life impact on the average American isa helluva lot stronger than that. Blood pressures have soaredand tempers have reached the boiling point over the shifts inhealth care, immigration, national security, energy, and the environment—andthen there’s the economy. The president and his administration have gotten folksriled. But some greedy Wall Streeters, a partisan Congress, and the media have also widened the national divide. Through it all, Bill O’Reilly can be counted on to cut through the rhetoric and tell you what’s good and what’s bad for you.

O’Reilly sorts it all out with his trademark mix of humor and bluster in his

    Pinheads

    I find it disturbing that the other reviews so far put the book down, when it came out today. Obviously, they haven't read the book. And some of them admit it!!!! Pinheads?

    A review of reviews.

    Negative reviews posted before or on the day the book is released? Have any of these previous reviewers actually read the book. They speak of fair and balanced but don't practice in their own actions. I'm curious if they actually watch the author on tv and develop their own anger-or rather derive it from the words of other tv show hosts.
    Advice from hypocrites...

    Early reviews...

    RESPONSE: When the title of a book references "pinheads," a very juvenile name-calling reference, immediate comments and commentary are justified. When a summary that is taken from the book's jacket states that this author is "as always fair, balanced..." blah, blah, blah, which contradicts someones ongoing experience from the author, immediate comments and commentary are justified. When there is a preview of the book available (as there is on this site) immediate comments and commentary are justified without having first read the book cover to cover. When an author who is famous (or infamous) for a very specific opinion of what his "American way" is about, and the book's jacket references that he is "guarding" it, immediate comments and commentary are justified...

    Patriots will love this book

    Telling it like it is, facts or ones opinion, has never been popular with those who's agenda runs contrary to what America is really about. But snearing, dismissive, rabidly marginalizing reviews or disingenuous sound bites are expected from these folks. Those tactics won't work any more on the American public. Bill O'Reilly is a breath of fresh air. Americans have always appreciated this books candor and the exposure of duplicity.

    Is this really anything new?

    What I find more disturbing than the book is the lack of respect and courtesy that people on either side give the other. Since when has it become un-American to disagree? Our biggest problem isn't right, left, or center. It is the absolute belief that one side is right and the other is not only wrong but a (fill in with the derogatory word of your choice) therefore totally incapable of contributing anything, not only to the debate, but to the society at large. If we are to solve anything, from crosswalks to the economy, we need share ideas and find common ground. All the screaming and shouting is just one more form of air pollution.

    Of special note to cueCP - Advance copies of books are made readily available to reviewers and major buyers. These copies are cheaply made, often still have typos, and clearly marked as not for sale. That doesn't mean they don't find their way around and get read.

    Really?

    It's hard for me to take you guys seriously when you review this latest O'reilly book and say it's fair and unbiased as usual from Bill. What are you smoking? Bill O'Reilly is one of the most opinionated people of this planet. I may have to cancel my b&n card.

    Don't waste your time

    I gave it a chance and it just wasn't good. Not a lot of fact. The little bit that is in there is twisted and unrecognizable. O'Reilly should retire. WASTE OF MONEY!

    Give Me a Break . . .

    I'm amazed that people will even read anything written by the paranoid, self-promoting Mr. O'Reilly. I have spent the last 18 months wondering why all the crazies have suddenly come out of the closet, one of whom is Bill-O. I wouldn't read his nonsense if Barnes and Noble paid ME!!

    P&P is a great read.

    Just finished reading P&P on my nook. Bill O'Reilly gives his no nonsense look into different people who effect our lives. I like how Bill gives his opinion whether you agree or not and how he sees it. Sometimes in this world of far left and far right it is nice to hear some thoughts towards the middle. I don't always agree with Bill's views but for righting this book he is for sure a PATRIOT !

    Demagoguery is Demagoguery

    Thin-skinned, name-calling, scarecrow polemics? There are no original thoughts, so why not quote some others, whose wisdom drives the proverbial pin into the cushion.

    "The Gospel according to Brady! God speaks to Brady, and Brady tells the world! Brady, Brady, Brady, Almighty!" Jerome Lawrence and
    Robert E. Lee, "Inherit the Wind"

    "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss." The Who

    "My goodness, this man is so cocksure of himself, his boat could be sinking but he'd set a sail straight into the middle of a gale without a life jacket!" Alphonso Littleback on Joseph McCarthy, May 25, 1954, while watching the Army-McCarthy hearings on his Philco 3104 17" Console.

    We certainly live in a divided country!

    I must admit I did not "buy" this book, it was lent to me for humorous , or rather dark comedy reasons by a friend. ( she did not buy it either , but admitted that her mother , spent her nights Devoted to everyword that came out of Bill O. I used to think Bill O was smarter than he acted , just to please fox audience , until he made a total classless pinhead of HIMSELF , when he interviewed The President of the. United States, and acted arrogant and ,well stupid,just to save face for his fox loyals . He kept interrupting the POTU ,as if he was some child in his studio. With all due respect, it does not surprise me, that the same people who like his books, likes sara palin, and other book ,that is hateful towards Obama . I have a cerebral book suggestion for you: Bristol palin just came out with a book,that might just be up your ally!!!
