As he did in his bestselling booksThe O'Reilly FactorandThe No Spin Zone, TV and radio host Bill O'Reilly again blasts a host of selfish and corrupt individuals and institutions for threatening the nation's well-being--no surprise there. What is surprising is the personal tone ofWho's Looking Out For You, which is as much self-help as social or political commentary. Is O'Reilly getting soft? Hardly. He still packs a punch, but this time he mixes tales of outrage with practical advice gleaned from his own experiences and mistakes. The underlying theme of the book is trust. If you can identify and associate with those that deserve your trust, he argues, you will get along well in both your personal and professional life. Among those external forces undeserving of trust, according to O'Reilly, are the media (particularly harmful to children, he warns), the legal system, and the government: "Our federal government is not good at helping real people who have real problems, and it doesn't care about the money you give it as long as that revenue train keeps chugging along," he writes. He also hammers the INS for their lax stance on illegal immigrants and the damage it has caused the country, irresponsible parents, secularists, network news executives, ideologues, and minority leaders who foster hatred in order to serve their own interests, to name just a few offenders. Though some of his advice tends toward the obvious, it is hard to argue with his emphasis on self-reliance, especially at a time when the answer to the question posed in his title seems to be "just me." It's a good bet that many readers will also add Bill O'Reilly to this list. --Shawn Carkonen

Bill O'Reilly is a warm and generous man. When he tires of praising himself, he is more than willing to step aside and let someone else do it for a while.    He wants to show you how to live the same way. In this unusual book, O'Reilly steps outside politics to alert you to how you're messing up your life by putting too much faith in public figures, media celebrities, religious leaders, even -- sometimes -- members of your own family. Get your life back on track by learning to …

Pros: Very informative, full of facts and ways to form positive relationships.     Cons: I could not put the book down until I read it all within one evening!     The Bottom Line: Very informative with a lot of thought-provoking viewpoints.      Bill O'Reilly gave me plenty to think about as I read his 212 page book! He is the producer and anchor of his own prime-time news program called the "The O'Reilly Factor". I have read two other …
