As one of the most listened to nationally syndicated radio talk-show hosts and the driving force behind the Rallies for America, Glenn Beck entertains, inspires, and informs millions of listeners. In 'The real America', Beck continues to tell it like it really is, cutting through the fog of modern-day pundits and pontificators who have made it their mission to undermine and underestimate the greatness of America, our strength as Americans, and the power of the American spirit. With his inimitable combination of self-effacing humor and heartfelt conviction, Glenn rails against many of the forces that keep us from our potential as a nation and as individuals - and tells how to overcome them. His topics include - Family and community; Politics; Personal responsibility; Race relations; Religion; Political correctness, the media, Hollywood, and celebrities; Abortion and the deat; Penalty; Alcohol and drugs; Why I wave the flag. Glenn Beck's compelling message in 'The real America' echoes the ideas he has delivered to thousands of people with his groundbreaking Rallies for America - Once we connect with our power individually, we can empower others - and then we can be as great and as grand as we have always wanted to be as a person, as a people, and as a nation.

I like Glenn Beck on the radio. His irrelevant style and sarcasm bode well with me. His book is ok. He does a good job explaining why he thinks the way he does. For me this makes the book a good read. Other people may not care. If so, this book isn't for you. Read full review

OK, the testimonies of Real America toward the end brought tears to my eyes. But again, I have to say I am tired.
I just can't handle listening to Glenn on the radio. At the Fitness Center, I'll
glance at the closed captioning of his tv show once in awhile. Reading those captions is like reading this book. Way too much excess verbage and talking down. And I'm tired of the foul language. I also can't handle listening to Sean Hannity, and most days I can only listen to a little of Rush.
But if a superb editor brought the book down to about 125 pages, just the core of the message, I would agree with much of what he says.
