O'Reilly says it took him a long time to get the hang of on-air journalism, but he definitely gets it now. Following on the success of "The O'Reilly Factor" and "The No-Spin Zone," he tackles all the people and institutions that ought to have your well-being at heart but probably don't. Parents (if you're lucky), government (forget it), church (has lost its way), the media (are you kidding?) all come in for scrutiny. He has many constructive solutions--for example, pick associates carefully--and puts them forth forcefully. He sounds by turn exuberant, cautionary, defensive, and, above all, persuasive. He concludes that you need to watch out for yourself, and, despite missteps, he has. Above all, he's a superb salesman of ideas. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
