Glenn Beck's Common Sense: The Case Against an Ouf-of-Control Government, Inspired by Thomas Paine (Google eBook)
#1 New York Times bestselling author and popular radio and television host Glenn Beck revisits Thomas Paine's Common Sense.
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-party monopoly, and illogical methods and take back our great country.

I'm a little late at getting to this book. Most of what I read I've heard on Beck's TV show. He does make some good points to ponder. The strongest chapter was the one on Progressivism. On the down side I wish he would be a little more civil in some of his discourse. Read full review

Beck is right in premise and principle but makes numerous factual errors (especially but not only when presenting historical data) which destroy his point and fails to qualify assertions which need them. When writing about politics this is a big deal, not a small one. Read full review
