    So far just a bunch of Republican rhetoric and unsupported facts Lots of statistics but Beck doesn t list a single authority for them His brilliant solution to the problem of global warming is to do nothing What a genius His use of the English language is uninspiring to say the least and his pathetic attempts at humor fall far short of even a mild tickle racism and bald faced elitism are apparently not funny who knew I m only reading it to force my brother into watching Al Gore s mov So far just a bunch of Republican rhetoric and unsupported facts Lots of statistics but Beck doesn t list a single authority for them His brilliant solution to the problem of global warming is to do nothing What a genius His use of the English language is uninspiring to say the least and his pathetic attempts at humor fall far short of even a mild tickle racism and bald faced elitism are apparently not funny who knew I m only reading it to force my brother into watching Al Gore s movieand out of mild curiosity to peer briefly into a stubbornly ignorant mind No, I did not pay for the book and no one should Update Managed to finish the book while reading exclusively on the toilet, which is entirely appropriate By far one of the worst, most worthless wastes of paper I have ever read

    I have been a huge fan of Glenn Beck s radio show ever since he became syndicated back in 2002 If you actually take the time to LISTEN to his radio show for an extended period of time you realize that he is in a constant state of analyzing his choices, his philosophies and his political alignments He is not, despite what his detractors think, a mindless republican stooge or even a mindless CONSERVATIVE stooge He s just a regular guy who has made it big but who stays close to his values and I have been a huge fan of Glenn Beck s radio show ever since he became syndicated back in 2002 If you actually take the time to LISTEN to his radio show for an extended period of time you realize that he is in a constant state of analyzing his choices, his philosophies and his political alignments He is not, despite what his detractors think, a mindless republican stooge or even a mindless CONSERVATIVE stooge He s just a regular guy who has made it big but who stays close to his values and never EVER lets anyone in politics or the media tell him what to think And he is, quite simply, a radar detector for hypocrisy and bullsh , which is what I think I love about his show the mostEDIT I wrote this review in 2008, literally months before ole Glenn went from being a very cool, if a bit eccentric, personality with genuinely provocative insights, to becoming a complete and raving lunatic It s almost not possible for people now to appreciate how awesome he used to be That being said, every time Glenn tries to branch out into a different medium, it simply reaffirms to me that RADIO is where he truly belongs His first book was simplistic drivel His TV show is, I find, pretty much unwatchable I haven t read his magazine but I imagine it s equally bad And An Inconvenient Book pretty much continues that trend.The book isn t exactly HORRIBLE In fact it does raise some interesting points about the major issues that are affecting us today True to form, Beck comes at these issues Global Warming, Terrorism, Political Correctness, Illegal Immigration from a questioning standpoint, pointing out the inconsistancies in logic that a lot of politicians and special interest groups seem to wallow in He tries to infuse all his arguments with a heavy dose of wit, sarcasm and self depreciating humor, which never really comes off as all that funny He also tries to break up the heavier chapters with chapters that deal with such innocuous topics as how to rent a movie with a spouse and how to deal with your daughter s first boyfriend Again, it s obvious that these chapters were intended to be comic relief I tended to skim or skip them altogether since they weren t really all that funny.So do I recommend this book Actually yes If you can find it at the library, pick it up for a quick read Whether you are rightly or leftly slanted Beck DOES make some good points and does so by avoiding the cliche d arguments that each side tends to fall back on You may or may not agree with everything he says, but I find Beck, whether you agree with him or not, does present the issues in a way that at least makes you think His prose ain t Howard Zinn, but it s mildly interesting nonetheless Still, I stand by my original statement which is to say that if you REALLY want to see what Glenn is REALLY about, you should spend a couple weeks listening to his radio show

    Wow If you have ever had a desire to be simultaniously entertained, horrified, and informed this is the book for you Glenn Beck offers his opinion on everything from global warming to illigal immigration, marriage and dateing, minimum wage, child molesters and dozens of other topics It really got me thinking about a lot of things and because he is an entertainer as well as a comentator he does an excellent job at taking some topics that would be rather dry and making them fun I loved the qu Wow If you have ever had a desire to be simultaniously entertained, horrified, and informed this is the book for you Glenn Beck offers his opinion on everything from global warming to illigal immigration, marriage and dateing, minimum wage, child molesters and dozens of other topics It really got me thinking about a lot of things and because he is an entertainer as well as a comentator he does an excellent job at taking some topics that would be rather dry and making them fun I loved the quotes from differnt people, and the ADD moments I love his sense of humor, I laughed out loud a few times But he also presents some cold hard facts that inspite of his levity really can be disturbing Glenn is an honest man asking honest questions, about a lot of things that are good for the rest of us know about Whether or not you agree with him The issues he raises shouldnt be ignored

    I rated this at 5 stars just to counter the mandatory 1 star I had to give Al Gore s book This book is by no means just a counter to Gore s book but includes other issues as well Some are deserving of this rating and others are just meant to be humorous The chapters on global warming, marriage, radical islam, political correctness, income gap, minimum wage, UN and others have good ideas and counter so much of the crap that we hear from so many sides in the media today Some of these chapters I rated this at 5 stars just to counter the mandatory 1 star I had to give Al Gore s book This book is by no means just a counter to Gore s book but includes other issues as well Some are deserving of this rating and others are just meant to be humorous The chapters on global warming, marriage, radical islam, political correctness, income gap, minimum wage, UN and others have good ideas and counter so much of the crap that we hear from so many sides in the media today Some of these chapters have very real solutions that should be explored but probably won t Too many of them are held up by politicians and will never see any change until something radical happens I would have thought something radical had been done already on many of these problems Obviously not radical enough to evoke change by our politicians and not enough for us to change things at the polls or ballot boxes.I personally think that Beck has hashed out these issues and is trying to take a reasonable look at what can be done with some of these issues Logic plays an important part in any decision we make in life and I believe he is trying to find logical answers to the tough questions that we all face as a whole and also on personal levels.Take it with a grain of salt as you would any talk show host or any political figure But read it with an open mind and check out his claims Do your homework and don t just follow along like so many sheep that already make up the US populace

    I started reading this book late one night because I didn t have any other books to read The first few pages produced some stifled giggles, but then I started howling w laughter at the global warming section, to the point where Paul asked me to please go somewhere else so he could sleep.I like Glenn Beck s writing and his self deprecating sense of humor He doesn t take himself too seriously but is able to convey some of the world s serious problems and offer some good solutions to them, all I started reading this book late one night because I didn t have any other books to read The first few pages produced some stifled giggles, but then I started howling w laughter at the global warming section, to the point where Paul asked me to please go somewhere else so he could sleep.I like Glenn Beck s writing and his self deprecating sense of humor He doesn t take himself too seriously but is able to convey some of the world s serious problems and offer some good solutions to them, all whle making you laugh The ultimate political book

    I m a Glenn Beck fan, so I enjoyed this book, though not as much as his other The Real America , which I really recommend The book is a lot like his show with side notes, humor, and random thoughts It is an easy read, as it is broken up in many sections, and looks like a junior high school textbook with all sorts of charts, and graphics He is a funny guy with some good ideas and some crazy ones, that just might work.

    Oh, you were really surprised when you came across this book review, weren t you Yeah, I m a big Glenn Beck fan Proof of just how nuts I am about Glenn Beck I wrote a Perl script to convert the live streams on the Glenn Beck Insider site which include bumper music and other types of material not fit for the podcast MP3s into MP3 or Ogg files I can listen to when I want Yeah I m a fan a geeky fan.Okay, so about this book It is very, very good In my opinion, this is how all conserv Oh, you were really surprised when you came across this book review, weren t you Yeah, I m a big Glenn Beck fan Proof of just how nuts I am about Glenn Beck I wrote a Perl script to convert the live streams on the Glenn Beck Insider site which include bumper music and other types of material not fit for the podcast MP3s into MP3 or Ogg files I can listen to when I want Yeah I m a fan a geeky fan.Okay, so about this book It is very, very good In my opinion, this is how all conservative pundits and talk radio jocks should write their books While a significant chunk of the book is about hot political issues like illegal immigration and global warming, there are chapters about less political topics like going to the video store or tipping service staff It s a pretty well rounded capture of what goes on in the mind of the third most listened to talk radio host in all of America.The layout of the book is also impressive Every page is printed in 4 color process and the text is accompanied by charts, graphs, and humorous drawings pictures that go along with the topic at hand The designers also gave each page a seemingly unique watermark, or background, that gives it a well handled, worn look like maybe you ve spilled a cup of coffee, or in the case of Glenn, a can of Coke Zero, on it, by accident.From my perspective, as a rabid fan of Glenn s, I found the book a bit lacking in detail That is, aside from the packaging of the book itself, there really wasn t much new here for me, content wise, that I hadn t already read on Glenn s site, heard on his radio program, seen on his television program, or experienced myself at one of his stage shows But hey I m the exception here If you ve had some exposure to Glenn Beck or none at all, this book is an excellent way to jump in and find out what he s about.Want to buy the book Head over toand get it It may be hard to find at your smaller local bookstore as it has been one of the top New York Times bestsellers since its release in November of 2007

    If you have a sense of humor, don t take yourself too seriously, and can take off the kaleidoscope glasses of contemporary liberal thought long enough to take an honest look at the world, you have to love Glenn Beck Glenn is a funny guy, a smart guy, and sometimes a scary guy Glenn frequently, self depreciatingly, refers to himself as a rodeo clown If you know what the rodeo clowns are really doing down there in the arena you may agree that this reference is actually a pretty accurate allegor If you have a sense of humor, don t take yourself too seriously, and can take off the kaleidoscope glasses of contemporary liberal thought long enough to take an honest look at the world, you have to love Glenn Beck Glenn is a funny guy, a smart guy, and sometimes a scary guy Glenn frequently, self depreciatingly, refers to himself as a rodeo clown If you know what the rodeo clowns are really doing down there in the arena you may agree that this reference is actually a pretty accurate allegory for what Glenn does A rodeo Clown isremarkable than most know He dresses up like a fool and goes out to taunt terrifying creatures of volatile ferocity, with horn and hooves like iron, dangerous animals which can run forty miles per hour, and weighthan ten times what the clown does He routinely puts himself in peril in order to protect the riders once they hit the ground However, because he looks and acts, well, like a clown, and makes us laugh, we may not appreciate just how important what he does really is.That said, I still have given An Inconvenient Book an over all rating of three stars On the whole it was informative and entertaining As Glenn says the fusion of entertainment and enlightenment There were several chapters that were STRONG five star efforts Global Warming, The Income Gap, Education, Media Bias, Political Correctness, to name a few Unfortunately, there were other chapters that just seemed irrelevant, inconsequential, and out of place, garnering two star ratings at best Body Image, Blind Dating, Movie Rentals, How to Remember Names I guess the intent was comedy, but it seemed like such a waste given the other significant topics he articulately, and humorously, addressed throughout the balance of the book It s still a good read, and contains a wealth of important information, but you can comfortably skip the two star chapters, study the fives, and get on to your next book

    I found myself laughing, thinking, and being down right scared at times as I read this book It took me a while to get used to the change in subject and the off shoots ADD moments , but it would not be Glenn Beck without them Overall, this book gives what it promises, political issues from a perspective you just don t hear.My favorite quote is, As a parent of a toddler you mission is clear Keep Them Alive.
