This Book Reads Like an Expanded "Talking Points"

I have read several of Bill's books.  While this is one of the weakest of his that I have read, it is still a very good and extremely fast read.  In this one Bill postulates on things like responsiblities to be a good parent, the dangers of addictions, the failures of the news media and the importance of religion in one's life.  Though I don't always agree with Bill, I always enjoy how he presents things.  He makes some very compelling arguments as to why the word "Christmas" should not be forceably omitted from retail ads and in other areas where people no longer use the word.

He lays out good strategies for parents teaching good morals to their children.  In one case he seems to be bothered that in one Univerisity program a "watered" down version of the Koran is required reading.  He then gives a "watered" down version of the interview he had with the 'offending" professor from the school.  I would like to see the full interview to see if certain cogent arguments were omitted.

I easily finished this book in one sitting, wiishing it was longer.

Wiki

Bill O’Reilly is one of the most recognized and talked-about journalists of our time. With an unparalleled track record as an author and with the #1-rated Fox News show, The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly has become a veritable institution of political insight and keen advice. In Keep It Pithy, O’Reilly offers a classic collection of the most memorable writings from his bestselling books, and looks back at how his opinions and ideas have been proven right or wrong by the passage of time. With his trademark candor and no-nonsense approach, each chapter focuses on a core theme as it gathers O’Reilly’s thoughts on the most compelling issues of our time and provides readers an illuminating guide to the American cultural landscape.

A spirited and personal book, Keep It Pithy is the perfect addition to an O’Reilly fan’s library, or the best introduction for the few left uninitiated.
